Abstract

AYURVEDIC MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE: A CASE STUDY

*Dr. Pratyush Kumar and **Dr. Shrawan Kumar Sahu

ABSTRACT

In recent years, chronic kidney disease (CKD) has received increasing attention owing to its enhancing rate of prevalence. Patients with CKD are at increased risk for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Furthermore, patients with CKD may progress to end-stage renal disease. To increase the awareness of CKD and improve treatment of patients with CKD, the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (K/DOQI) from the US National Kidney Foundation has developed guidelines for the diagnosis and classification of CKD. But so far as its treatment is concerned, it is very unsatisfactory in mainstream healing system. Kidney transplantation offers the best outcomes and the best quality of life. However, not everyone is a candidate for a kidney transplant. Extensive testing to ensure the suitability for transplantation, shortage of organs for transplantation, prerequisite several tests to identify suitable immunologic characteristics. Transplant surgery is a major procedure and generally requires 4 to 7 days in the hospital. All transplant recipients require lifelong immunosuppressant medications to prevent their bodies from rejecting the new kidney. These medications require careful monitoring of blood levels and increase the risk of infection as well as some types of cancer. A schedule of regular follow-up visits is mandatory in such cases. As another option dialysis is not effective in view of risk benefit ratio. Obviously there is an urgent need of help from alternative therapy to counter these difficulties. This article is a small beginning in this regard wherein the potential of Ayurveda can be peeped vividly.

Keywords: chronic kidney disease, kidney transplant, immunosuppressant medications, Ayurveda.
