A case study of Chronic Renal failure successfully managed with Ᾱyurvedic treatment.
A 38 years old male patient of chronic renal failure (CRF) came to P D Patel Ayurveda Hospital, Nadiad with the complaints of periorbital puffiness on face, pedal edema, hyper tension, oliguria, massive proteinuria and high level of serum creatinine since 4 months. Patient was on regular hemodialysis twice a week. Patient was treated for 40 days as indoor patient with oral medicaments including gokṣurādi guggulu, varuṇādi kvātha, bhūmyāmalakī and rasāyana cūrṇa along with basti therapy. Patient responded well with Ayurvedic treatment. Hemodialysis was done only for one time initially during the commencement of the therapy. Serum creatinine level was significantly reduced from 6.6 mg/dl to 5.7 mg/dl during hospitalized period. Serum creatinine reduced up to 3.9 mg/dl after the 2 months of follow up period. Total urine output was gained up to normal level. After completion of basti, oral drug was continued. And dialysis is not needed even after completion of the 10 months of follow-up, eGFR was increased up to 16 ml/min/1.73m2 from 8ml/min/1.73m2 which clearly indicates that patient is shifted to stage 5 chronic kidney disease to stage 4 kidney disease.
