Kidney Disease

The development and advancement of both science and Unani system of medicine in the 20th century have changed the fields of life science and heath care in a way far beyond our imagination a hundred years ago. Unani System of Medicine has revealed new innovative developments within sight; these include, as outlined in this brief review, new drug targeted on specific kidney genes to prevent the progression of renal disease especially in diabetes associated nephritic syndrome.

What is Chronic Renal Failure?

Chronic kidney disease is the slow loss of kidney function over time. The main function of the kidneys is to remove wastes and excess water from the body.Chronic kidney disease (CKD) slowly gets worse over time. In the early stages, there may be no symptoms. The loss of function usually takes months or years to occur. It may be so slow that symptoms do not occur until kidney function is less than one-tenth of normal.

Patients who are prone to above mentioned kidney problems?

Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two most common causes and account for most cases.
Many other diseases and conditions can damage the kidneys, including:

What are the symptoms and problems associated with above mentioned disease?

The early symptoms of chronic kidney disease often occur with other illnesses, as well. These symptoms may be the only signs of kidney disease until the condition is more advanced.

Symptoms may include:

Other symptoms that may develop, especially when kidney function has worsened:

What are the signs & tests for Kidney diseases?

High blood pressure is almost always present during all stages of chronic kidney disease. A neurologic examination may show signs of nerve damage. The health care provider may hear abnormal heart or lung sounds with a stethoscope.

A urinalysis may show protein or other changes. These changes may appear 6 months to 10 or more years before symptoms appear.

Tests that check how well the kidneys are working include:

Chronic kidney disease changes the results of several other tests. Every patient needs to have the following checked regularly, as often as every 2 - 3 months when kidney disease gets worse:

What are the treatments available?

Dialysis or Kidney transplantation is the only treatment available in modern science. Although some dialysis patients live longer than 4 to 8 yrs, others fare poorly and die within 2 to 3 yr. Nonetheless, it is important to note that chronic dialysis therapy is an expensive medical modality and painful for the patients.

Our Unani Treatment for Renal Failure acts in the following ways:-

Helps to restore the functions of the kidney. Increase the urine output thereby decreasing the inflammation on face & legs, relieving nausea & feverish conditions within 9 days. Helps in increasing water fluid intake thereby removing out the blood waste products thus drastically bringing down serum creatinine & blood urea nitrogen in the patients within a month. The need for dialysis are being reduced and gradually stopped. Thus helps the patient to live a healthy life without dialysis and kidney transplantation.
