Renal function is the function performed by the bean shaped organs namely kidneys. The kidneys filter the waste products from the blood and water. They also help in regulating blood pressure, red blood cell production and electrolyte balance. A renal kidney disease occurs when kidneys are not able to clean the blood of the metabolic waste. This situation can lead to building up of high levels of waste products in the body. It must be treated in initial stages to avoid any further damage.
Causes, Symptoms of Renal Kidney Disease
There could be possibly many reasons for renal failures, such as:
- Kidneys not getting enough blood to filter
- You are already suffering from high blood sugar level, high blood pressure, glomerulonephritis and polycystic kidney disease
- Kidneys getting blocked by a kidney stone or scar tissue
- Family history of kidney failure
There are many symptoms that may be visible according to the level of renal failures, such as:
- Swelling in hands, feet and face
- Blood mixed with urine
- High blood pressure
- Unusual weight loss or weight gain
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Fatigue and confusion
- Itchy and dry skin
- Muscle twitches and cramps
If the above symptoms prevail, one must go for creatinine level blood test. A kidney in good health removes the extra creatinine from the blood through urine. A higher creatinine level in the blood is the sign that kidneys are damaged and not cleaning the blood.
In later stages of renal kidney disease, patients mostly go for a dialysis to remove the waste through artificial method. In case, if the kidney is mostly damaged one can completely remove the kidney and replace it with a new kidney which is known as a kidney transplant. Both of the above methods are costly and do not give a permanent cure. On the other hand, Ayurvedic treatment can help in the long term cure for the kidney disease.
Ayurveda is the method of holistic healing of the body. It has been in practice since ancient times. The idea behind Ayurveda is that any part of the body can heal itself in time with the use of some natural herbs. One of the most reputed clinics in India for complete Ayurvedic treatment is Karma Ayurveda. It started in 1937 and since then had been treating patients suffering from kidney and liver problems. It is now headed by an experienced Ayurveda physician Dr. Puneet Dhawan. He doesn’t support any allopathic treatment and only practice natural herbs for healing. Apart from providing effective Ayurvedic medicines, he also advises a planned balanced diet to its patients. A healthy lifestyle and Ayurveda can cure any type of renal kidney disease.
