Kidneys are the organs that filter waste products from the blood. They are also involved in regulating blood pressure, electrolyte balance, and red blood cell production in the body.Symptoms of kidney failure are due to the build-up of waste products and excess fluid in the body that may cause weakness, shortness of breath, lethargy, swelling, and confusion. Inability to remove potassium from the bloodstream may lead to abnormal heart rhythms and sudden death. Initially kidney failure may cause no symptoms.
DIAGNOSIS & TYPES
The diagnosis of kidney failure usually is made by blood tests measuring BUN, creatinine, and glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Kidney failure may occur from an acute situation that injures the kidneys or from chronic diseases that gradually cause the kidneys to stop functioning.
In acute renal failure, kidney function is lost rapidly and can occur from a variety of insults to the body.
Chronic renal failure develops over months and years. The most common causes of chronic renal failure are related to poorly controlled diabetes, poorly controlled high blood pressure, and chronic glomerulonephritis.
Initially, kidney failure may be not produce any symptoms (asymptomatic). As kidney function decreases, the symptoms are related to the inability to regulate water and electrolyte balances, clear waste products from the body, and promote red blood cell production.
SIDDHA TREATMENT FOR KIDNEY FAILURE
Diawin Siddha Hospital is a well known hospital for treatment of renal failure in Tamilnadu.
To correct or treat the cause of kidney dysfunction.
To repair the damaged nephrons (functional unit of kidneys) in the kidney of afflicted patient to the desirable extent to avoid dialysis.
To maintain the status of protein and fatty metabolism so that patient’s blood urea, s.creatinine, levels come down and are maintained under the normal indicated range.
To support the kidneys until they have healed and can work properly while preventing or treating any complications caused by acute renal failure.
