There is no need to go for dialysis to the patients who have not yet started the dialysis, and the ones who have begun their dialysis recently is possible to stop the dialysis in coming months. And keep the thought of Kidney Transplantation away from your mind.
The diet of the kidney patient should be decided by the level of the waste products like urea, creatinine, sodium, potassium, phosphorous in the blood as per the blood test.
Remember! Kidney disease is managed not only with the medicines but also with diet restriction.Depending only on the medications without food restriction will be fatal. Death may occur if they won’t follow strict diet restrictions.
Test for Kidney has started functioning: Purchase urine measurement pot from a medical store. On the first day before you initiate the treatment take your first urine in a white bottle. It will be observed to be hazy & having a bad odor after 12 days or 14 day takes the first urine and checks it. When the urine is found clear and without bad smell, it denotes that kidneys have started functioning normally.
NOTE: Begin with fruit fasting for seven days before 14 days detox program.
Two bananas; 1 papaya; 1 pomegranate; 1 apple; 1 glass beet juice in combination with carrot juice. Only give one cup barely soup and one cup Ragi kheer. Remember! Kidney patients must put on
Remember! Kidney patients must put on a liquid diet. Initially no solid or cooked food is given. The total fluid intake should be limited to an amount equal to urine volume plus 500ml.
Symptoms of Chronic Kidney Disease:
· Changes in urination – making more or less urine than usual, feeling pressure when urinating variations in the color of urine, foamy or bubbly urine, or having to get up at night to urinate.
· Swelling of the feet, ankles, hands or face – fluid the kidneys can’t remove may stay in the tissues.
· Fatigue or Weakness – a build up of wastes or a shortage of red blood cells (anemia) can cause these problems when the kidneys begin to fails.
· Shortness of breath – renal failure is sometimes confused with asthma or heart failure because fluid cans build up in the lungs.
· Ammonia Breath or an ammonia or metal taste in the mouth – waste build up in the body can cause bad breath, changes in taste, or an aversion to protein foods like meat.
· Back or Flank pain – the kidneys are located on either side of the spine in the back.
· Itching – waste up build in the body can cause severe itching, especially
of the legs.
· Loss of appetite & Nausea and Vomiting
Stages of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD):
|Stages||Description||G FR Level|
|Normal Kidney Function||Healthy Kidneys||90mL/min or more|
|Stage 1||Damage – normal or high GFR||90mL/min or more|
|Stage 2||Damage – mild decrease in GFR||60 to 89 mL/min|
|Stage 3||Moderate decrease in GFR||30 to 59 mL/min|
|Stage 4||Severe decrease in GFR||15 to 29 mL/min|
|Stage 5||Kidney Failure||Less than 15 mL /min or on dialysis.|
“GFR Level “– Glomerular Filtration Rate, is a measure of how well your kidneys are cleaning your blood. Based on Creatinine Measurement GFR is a calculation of how efficiently the kidneys are filtering wastes from the blood. Your GFR is the best indicator of how well your kidneys are working.
In stage 1 and stage 2 CKD, there are often few symptoms.
Early CKD is usually diagnosed when there is: High Blood Pressure; Higher than normal levels of creatinine or urea in the blood; Blood or protein in the urine; Ultrasound , Evidence of kidney damage in an MRUltrasound, or contrast X- ray ; A family history of polycystic kidney disease.
In stage 3 CKD, anemia (a shortage of red blood cells) and /or early bone disease may appear and should be treated to help you feel your best and reduce problems down the road.
Blood Urea Nitrogen: (BUN) Blood carries protein to cells throughout the body. After the cells use the protein, the remaining waste product is returned to the blood as urea compound that contains nitrogen. Healthy kidneys take urea out of the blood and put it in the urine. If your kidneys are not working well, the urea will stay in the blood. A deciliter of normal blood contains 7 to 20 milligrams of urea. If your BUN is more than 20 mg/dL, your kidneys may not be working at full strength. Other possible causes of an elevated BUN include dehydration and heart failure.
Periodical Medical Checkup: Routine blood and urine tests. Three simple tests to the screen of kidney disease: a blood pressure measurement, a spot check for protein or albumin in the urine (proteinuria), and a calculation of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) based on a serum creatinine measurement. Measurement urea nitrogen in the blood provides additional information. (Maintain your medical records in reverse chronological order i.e. oldest ones last and newest ones first.)
Things to avoid: Aspirin-used other than recommended or long term. Ibuprofen-used other than recommended or long term. The acetaminophen-used long term, or other than recommended. Naproxen-used other than recommended or long term. Any analgesic (pain killer)-used in combination with another can cause kidney failure harm. Any analgesic combination which also contains caffeine or codeine-can cause kidney failure. Out-dated tetracyclines-are poisons. Toluene inhalation (industrial exposure or glue sniffing). Combining over the counter drugs or prescription drugs with alcohol.
Normal aging usually takes its toll on the kidneys naturally. That is a common belief. I don’t know if I completely agree. Sure they will wear out sooner or later, but some people do live full, healthy lives well into their 100’s. I think it is because of their lifestyle and eating habits. As well as their outlook on life. We do have 2 kidneys so even if one wore out at 50 we should have another 50 years on the other one! So for goodness sake take every precaution to keep from getting to the point of having your kidneys fail.
Contributing factors of renal failure: Degenerative diseases; congestive heart failure; anemia; – rheumatoid arthritis; fibrinogen formation; fibrosis; diabetes; asthma; lupus; psoriasis; kidney stone etc.
Kidney Function Tests: Any disturbance in the functioning of the kidneys can be judged from a series of tests conducted on the blood and urine of the patient. The extent of damage to the kidney, if may, can be easily detected on the basis of the following biochemical tests.
|Sr. no.||determination||Normal values||Increased in||Decreased in|
|1||SGPT||5-35IU at 37˚C||–||Renal insufficiency|
|3||Calcium||9.0-11.0mg/dl 4.5-5.5mEq/L||–||Chronic Renal disease|
|4||Chloride||95-106mEq/L||Renal tubular disease||Salt-losing Renal disease|
|6||Creatinine||0.7-1.5mg/dl||Impaired renal function||–|
|7||Glucose||70-110mg/dl||Chronic Renal Failure||–|
|9||Inorganic Phosphorus||2.5-4.5mg/dl(adult) 4.0-6.0mg/dl(child)||Renal insufficiency||–|
|10||Potassium||3.8-5.6mEq/l||Renal glomerular disease||Renal tubular disease|
|12||Total Protein||6-8gm/dl||–||Renal disease (protein-losing)|
|14||Uric acid||2.0-7.0mg/dl||Renal failure||Renal tubular defect|
|15||Urea nitrogen||7.0-23mg/dl||Impaired renal function post-renal conditions|
In urine (24 hrs collection): Clearance test are designed to measure the efficiency with which the kidneys remove certain substances from the blood. Urea and creatinine are commonly measured for clinical purpose.
The normal value of adults for creatinine clearance ranges between 100- 180ml/minute. While normal urea clearances are 50-100ml/minute. These values multiplied by 1.4 give liters per day. Ideally, clearance should be corrected for body size. In early cases of kidney diseases, a fall in the clearance rate may occur before the serum creatinine and urea level rise above normal.
Dialysis can not replace the healthy and normal function of kidneys but it allows patients to avoid the life threatening features of uremia. Dialysis does not help to relieve all the symptoms of chronic renal failure and the patient must continue to observe dietary and fluid restrictions. The main function of kidneys is to excrete the waste products of the body. When the kidneys are damaged waste products like creatinine, urea etc. are accumulated in the body and becomes toxic condition. Nausea, Vomiting, Dyspnoea, weakness are some of the symptoms of such condition. The patient is put on a dialysis machine to duplicate the kidney’s function to clean the blood and body from the toxic elements accumulated. In order to achieve maximum benefit of the treatment, it is important to adhere to your diet.
Clinical and Metabolic Disorders in Dialysis:
a. A type of hyperlipidemia and other disorder of lipid metabolism
b. A high incidence of CV disease particularly IHD
c. Osteodystrophy with disorder bone architecture, osteoporosis or osteomalacia
d. Itching: due to high phosphorous levels, as Phosphorous is not effectively removed by dialysis. That’s why foods with phosphorus are restricted on the renal diet.
e. Infection & clotting: Proper care for the access (either a fistula or a graft) is important in hemodialysis. The access can become infected or inflamed.
g. Impaired immune function and decreased resistance to infection
h. Mildly impaired peripheral and CNS function
i. Muscle weakness and atrophy
j. Frequent occurrence of viral hepatitis
k. Sexual impotence and infertility
l. Generalized wasting and malnutrition
m. Emotional depression
n. Poor rehabilitation HOW TO GET RIDE FROM DIALYSIS (TREATMENT FOR KIDNEY FAILURE) How to Prepare Black Tea: Put one cup of water to boil.

Natural Preventive Management Program for Kidney Failure
“A rupee of prevention is better than a cure with lakhs of rupees with life threatening side effects.”Preventive Management Program for Kidney Failure “Prevention is not only better & cheaper than a cure but is the only option for a healthy life.” PREVENTION IS BETTER & CHEAPER THAN CURE? There is an apocryphal story of a village which nested on top of a cliff .From the cliff was a precipitous drop of a hundred meters in a valley. At times people fell down from the promontory of the cliff; some escaped with broken bones, where as others died. The Gram panchayat decided to do some thing about calamities. What do you think they did? They had a nice little hospital built down in the valley, staffed with nice doctors & nurses, and a nice little operation theatre was for them to work in; and a nice ambulance was kept ready round the clock, for all eventualities .Nobody thought of putting up a railing or wall around the cliff.
The story of that village is the story of the world. We all are as foolish as the old men of that Gram panchayat. We forget that “prevention is better & cheaper than cure”. In fact we are breeding diseases these days that can not be cured. Why not prevent their onset by right living habits, & creating & contributing to a clean environment? It is very pity that Million are spent on research in combating and conquering diseases, but no money is spent in finding ways to maintain health & prevent sickness.NEED A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO HEALING: Beware no true cure and no restoration of health can be obtained with western medicines. The bombardment of antibiotics and heavy drugs creates more toxicity which not only suppressed the symptoms for time being, but also damaged the vital organs and weakens the immune system. Then how could be it effective in chronic ailments? And could mankind survive without the defensive mechanism of the body? Thereby it is better to safethan sorry. By choosing the better treatment options which are safe, effective, cheap and easy to understand and practice. The answer is only holistic approach to healing. Holistic means “addressing the whole”,are extremely beneficial is addressing and eliminating root causes of the diseases. Even when there is toxicity benefits can over weigh adverse reaction.
Contributing factors of kidney failure:
Degenerative diseases; congestive heart failure; anemia;-rheumatoid arthritis; fibrinogen formation; fibrosis; diabetes; asthma; lupus; psoriasis; kidney stone

Benefits of Deep Breathing & Pranayam:
Improvement in the quality of the blood due to its increased oxygenation in the lungs. This aids in the elimination of toxins from the system.
Increase in the digestion and assimilation of food. The digestive organs such as the stomach receive more oxygen and hence operate more efficiently. The digestion is further enhanced by the fact that the food is oxygenated more.
Improvement in the health of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, nerve centers and nerves. This is due again to the increased oxygenation and hence nourishment of the nervous system. This improves the health of the whole body since the nervous system communicates to all parts of the body.
Rejuvenation of the glands, especially the pituitary and pineal glands. The brain has a special affinity for oxygen, requiring three times more oxygen than does the rest of the body. This has far-reaching effects on our well-being.
The movements of the diaphragm during the deep breathing exercise massage the abdominal organs – the stomach, small intestine, liver, and pancreas. The upper movement of the diaphragm also massages the heart. This stimulates the blood circulation in these organs.
The lungs become healthy and dominant, a good insurance against respiratory problems.
Deep, slow, yoga breathing reduces the workload for the heart. The result is a more efficient, stronger
heart that operates better and lasts longer. It also means reduced blood pressure and less heart disease.
