Kidney / Renal Failure

hari7priya, 15 November 2014 17:12  this question feed

Dear Sir,

Suddenly I noticed edema throughout my body. Having a complete blood test done, doctors noticed that I had low Hb. I had been on Erythropoitein injection many times. This lead to the increase of creatinine and potassium in my blood. I took water-retention pills as well to level-down the water content in my body.

What can I do to decrease my creatinine levels and potassium levels? Doctors are suggesting me to go for dialysis at this stage. It would be a great help if you could please suggest me any good ways to get to normal, considering all the above criteria. I greatly appreciate your valuable response.

Thanks, Haripriya

Ayurvedic Medicine

Anemia is due to the decreased secretion of the harmone Erythropoietin. It is commonly seen in kidney problems. Dialysis is generally indicated when the kidney function is very poor. Please let me know your blood tests to guide you further.

Ayurvedic medicines like Punarnavadi kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food, Divya Gokshuradi Guggulu and Divya Punarnavadi mandoor can be taken for a month and reviewed.

Include barley, coriander, drumstick leaves, beet root, jaggery, puffed rice, spinach, dates, pomegranate, berries and cucumber. Reduce excess bananas, salt, mushrooms, asparagus, yeast, peas, nuts, beans and avocados. Drink water as advised by your doctor. Please do have regular checkups and follow the advise of your nephrologist.

As you are having edema allover the body, and as per your reports it seems your creatinine levels are high and hemoglobin levels are low. There are many reasons for generalized edema and low hemoglobin or anemic condition is also one reason and if there is any changes in creatinine or high levels may also cause edema typically on legs. So, in your case both are causing edema.

You may start the following medications: Punarnava Mandoora one tablet twice daily and Punarnavarishta 30 ml twice daily after food is helpful. You may need to take Cardimap to avoid renal hypertension. These medicines are indicated only when your renal parameters are normal. If creatinine levels are higher, it is better to avoid these medicines for time being.

If Dialysis is recommended by doctors very strictly, then it is better to proceed for dialysis before taking these medicines.

You can practice general breathing exercises which are helpful to maintain general blood circulation and gives you mental satisfaction.

Reduce foods that are salty, and reduce fat diet and spicy food items. You can take water in limited quantity according to your body mass index.
