When the ability of the kidney to function slowly decreases for several years, it is called chronic kidney failure. The final stage of the disease permanently kidney failure occurs (kidney failure).
CKF (chronic kidney failure) is also known as chronic renal disease, chronic renal failure or chronic kidney failure. When the renal functioning capacity starts to slow down and the condition starts deteriorating, then the amount of waste and liquid produced in our body increases to the level of danger.
The aim of this chronic kidney disease treatment is to prevent or slow down the disease – this is usually done by controlling its main cause. Chronic kidney disease is more elaborate than people think. Until this disease spreads well in the body, nothing is known about this disease or its symptoms. When the kidney works 75 percent less than its capacity, then people are able to feel that they have kidney disease.
Based on the site (location) of primary damage, Chronic renal failure can be classified in:
- Pre-renal CRF
- Post-renal CRF(Obstructive Uropathy)Renal CRF
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Causes
What causes CKD? The kidneys complete the complex system of filtration in our bodies. They work by excluding excess waste and fluids from the blood and excreted from the body. Each kidney has about 1 million micro-filtering units, called nephrons. Any disease that causes damage to the nephron can also lead to kidney disease. Both diabetes and high blood pressure are diseases that can cause damage to the nephron. (Mostly, kidney disease is due to diabetes and high blood pressure.)
In most cases, the kidneys help excrete most of the waste produced in our body. However, if the blood flow to the kidneys is affected, they do not work well. The reason for this is any damage or disease. If urinary excretion is interrupted, problems may occur.
In most cases, a chronic disease results in CKD, such as:
- Diabetes – Kidney failure has been linked to diabetes types 1 and 2. If the patient’s diabetes is not controlled properly, excessive amounts of sugar (glucose) may accumulate in the blood. Kidney disease is not common in the first 10 years of diabetes. The disease usually occurs 15–25 years after the diagnosis of diabetes.
- Hypertension – High blood pressure can damage the glomeruli parts found in the kidneys. Glomeruli help in filtering the waste materials present in the body.
- Obstructed urine flow – if the urine flow is stopped, it accumulates from the bladder (vesicoureteral reflux- vesicoureteral reflux ) back to the kidney. The flow of blocked urine increases the pressure on the kidneys and reduces its efficiency.
- Other kidney diseases – including polycystic (polycystic) kidney disease, pyelonephritis ( Pyelonephritis ) or Glomerulonefraitis ( Glomerulonephritis ) are included.
- Kidney artery stenosis – The renal artery becomes finite or stops before entering the kidney.
- Some toxic materials – these include fuels, solvents (such as carbon tetrachloride), lead (lead and paints, pipes, and soldering materials). Even some types of jewelry contain toxins, which can cause kidney failure.
- Problems related to fetal development – If the kidneys developing in the womb do not develop properly.
- Systemic lupus erythematosus – This is an autoimmune disease. In this, the body’s own immune system severely affects the kidneys as if they are any external tissue.
- Malaria and yellow fever – responsible for obstructing kidney function.
- Certain medications – Ansaaidis (NSAIDs) for example, such as – aspirin ( Aspirin excessive use) or ibuprofen (ibuprofen).
- Injury – a sharp blow or injury to the kidneys.
ROLE OF HOMOEOPATHY in Cure of CKD or CRF
The kidney has a generalized function – the fluids it contains and affects every organ, tissue, and cell in our body. Kidney function affects the entire vital economy of our body.
State failure of fear, anxiety and acute renal failure Depression and mental discomfort of chronic renal failure.
The condition of the patient with end-stage renal failure or progressive reversible chronic kidney disease is very pathetic not only for the patient but for the whole family and society. Personalized homeopathic therapeutic modalities are very important in view of the patient’s psychological presentation. Homeopathy works wonders here and prevents the progression of hemodialysis and renal transplant in large numbers.
The usual presentation of C.R.F. in Homeopathic hospital includes:
1. Patients with renal insufficiency only:
This is the best field of work for us but unfortunately, the number of cases being presented at this level is very less. Individual homeopathic treatment works wonders here and prevents a large number of cases from going through the phase of dialysis or renal transplant. Normal symptomatic presentation at this stage is mostly unclear with patients complaining of nausea, anorexia, and progressive weakness. Laboratory kidney parameters are also not too seriously disturbed. The development of personal totality consisting of mental fields, habits, past and family history requires a lot of patience and labor but the results are amazing.
2. Patients with chronic renal failure pending hemodialysis and renal transplant:
It is a group of cases with maximum presentations in clinics. Most of these cases come as a last resort for homeopathic rescue because they cannot undergo prolonged dialysis and transplantation. Other small groups of patients want to know the benefits of homeopathic treatment over dialysis and if homeopathic treatment is done with hemodialysis? Clinical decisions are individualized and vary from patient to patient. Remember that the correlation of urinary symptoms with kidney functions varies from patient to patient.
3. Patients already on long-term hemodialysis, pending renal transplant:
A great role is played here by Homeopathy. Research experiments in various hospitals reveal the following facts: (a) The number of dialyzes required in a period of time in induced homeopathic treatments has been reduced. (B) Complications that are associated with chronic dialysis therapy can be reduced and overcome using homeopathic remedies. Remember the complications of dialysis and its homeopathic management. A patient suffering from chronic dialysis relies on a machine for his life. Different types of psychiatric, neurologic and somatic disorders develop in these patients. Dialysis dementia, a neurological disorder, is a typical example. In the mental field, these patients become very depressed, their low physical ability makes them depressed and depressed.
Infections in the anatomic area, thrombosis, and aneurysm are formed in arteriovenous fistulas. There is a high incidence of septic embolization in these cases. Heparin is required to prevent clotting during hemodialysis procedures, which can lead to complications such as subdural hematoma and intracerebral bleeding.
4. Post renal transplant patients:
After the renal transplant, the group of patients coming for homeopathic is very limited. The results are not that encouraging as homeopaths have very little experience with these patients. The majority of the symptoms here are marked and deformed by immune-suppressive therapy. All immune responses are suppressed by Immuno-suppressive therapy and therefore homeopathic treatment does not play any major role in organ rejection of transplant cases. Many cases are seen, where kidney failure occurs, are put on dialysis and if they receive homeopathy medication together, they need frequent dialysis and improve their quality of life.
How and why screening For patients suffering from kidney disorders, screening becomes mandatory to determine the cause and nature of kidney disease. Early detection can provide proper management of renal dysfunction. Even for homeopaths, this understanding will lead to better management and prognosis.
