Ayurvedic Medicine

Kidney shrinkage is seen due to congenital reasons, chronic pyelonephritis or with impaired kidney function. The nephrons in the kidneys are affected and causes a reduction in the size of the kidney. This decrease in size will also affect the function of the kidneys. The medicines will help to improve the function of the kidneys and thereby will nourish the nephrons. Please do have regular checkups.

Medicines like Punarnavadi kwath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food and Nephromed for Kidney Disorders can be taken for a month and then reviewed.

As with the diet, as your reports are normal you can follow a kidney healthy diet. Normally 2000ml of water is recommended with normal results. You can also consult with your treating physician. Inlcude low quantity of protein while you can take limited high quality protein like egg white, lean meat or skimmed milk. Turmeric, berries, cumin and coriander will be beneficial. Reduce excess phosphorus, potassium and sodium. Try to limit bananas, mushrooms, asparagus, peas, nuts, beans, yeast and avocados.

Hello,Renal atrophy occur with decreased functional status of nephrons and is termed renal dysplasia.The damage done to nephrons is irreversible but further damage can be avoided by strengthening kidneys and allowing a proper filtration byglomerular system.Ayurvedic medicines recommended are as follows-1.Punarnavadi kshaya- 30ml in equal amount of water twice a day after meals.2.Gokshuradi guggul- 2 tablets twice a day with luke warm water after meals.3.Varunadi kwath- 30ml in equal amount of water twice a day after meals.4.Chanderprabha vati- 2 tablets thrice a day with luke warm water after meals.In panchkarma uttar basti with varunadi kwath should be done to purify the renal system and bring the dosha to normal levels.Anuvasan and asthapan basti with punarnavadi kwath and ksheer bala oil should be taken alternatively under the supervision of ayurvedic physician.Alcohol and smoking should be prohibited while salt and oil should be reduced. Regular renal check up should be done to monitor the functional status of kidneys.

When the function of the kidney is impaired, shrinkage is also seen. It is commonly seen in conditions with uremia, renal dysplasia or any other congenital renal problems. It affects the function of the kidneys. Ayurvedic medicines can be taken to strengthen the kidneys.

Medicines like Punarnavadi kasayam - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food, Divya Gokshuradi Guggulu can be taken for a month and then reviewed.

Eat healthy light food with cucumber, berries and coriander. Reduce excess alcohol, salt, meat, butter, oil, caffeine, protein, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, mushrooms, asparagus, peas, nuts, beans, yeast and avocados. Try to bring the urea below 20mg/dl and the creatinine below 1mg/dl which are the normal values. Proper medicines and regular checkups will help to reduce the progression of the kidney problem and will help to improve the function of the kidneys.

My mother is suffering from kidneys disease from last 20 years (1991 to till date) and now her age is around 56 years. she is also having high blood pressure from last 20 years but her blood pressure is under control by taking medicines on daily wages

Now her both kidneys are smaller in size (left kidney is 64 * 30 mm with parenchymal thickness of 9 mm and right kidney is 52 * 27 mm with parenchymal thickness of 9 mm)

from last month her tests are as follows.

creatinine = between 7.0 and 9.6 (mg/dl).

potassium serum = 3.7 mEq/L.

BUN = 36mg/dl.

urea serum = 77mg/dl.

sodium serum = 131 mEq/L.

Her 24 hours urine output is around 1.5 Litre to 2.0 Litre

now the doctors are suggesting for dialysis.

Even her kidneys are smaller in size from the Ultrasound report that was taken in 1991. (left kidney was 7.8 * 4.0 cm and right kidney was 7.9 * 4.3)

We want to avoid the dialysis.

Please suggest some alternate way whether natural or by medicines.

I am writing to you with a very positive sign for hope and want to avoid dialysis.

Please reply me with a detailed answer

Thanks a lot for your cooperation.

Kidney shrinkage is very critical situation for the patient, needs very much attention and awareness about its effects, so you must take care of patient's higiene and diet management in which patient must avoid oily, spicy, junk food, eat in less quantity and after gap of every 4 hours.. For kidney failure we recommend you Kidney / Renal Failure. Yoga VCD for Kidney by Swami Ramdev ji. Take these ayurvedic medicines for 3-4 months for getting relief from your grandfather's kidney problem.Have plenty of water.
