Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition where kidneys are damaged over time and lose their functionality. One of the most important things to understand about CKD is that it is often asymptomatic in its early stages which means that all the symptoms that one might feel would potentially be at a very later stage which makes CKD even more life-threatening as by then the kidneys would be severely damaged and the person’s condition would be critical. 

Causes and Risk Factors

It is important to know that Chronic kidney disease can develop at any age. Some please are at a higher risk than others because of many contributing factors. There are many causes and risk factors for CKD like obesity, high blood pressure, history of acute kidney injury, diabetes, high blood pressure, alcohol and tobacco consumption, etc. People who are over the age of 60 are more at risk of suffering from CKD. 

Chronic Kidney Disease Treatment
Stages of Chronic Kidney Disease
Stage 1 – Kidney Damage with Normal or High eGFR

The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) (a test that measures your level of kidney function and determines your stage of kidney disease) is equal to or greater than 90 mL/min/1.73 m².

There might be evidence of kidney damage, such as protein in the urine (albuminuria), but the overall kidney function is still considered normal or slightly high.

Stage 2 – Mildly Reduced eGFR

eGFR is between 60 and 89 mL/min/1.73 m².

Kidney function is mildly reduced, and there may be further evidence of kidney damage.

Stage 3 – Moderately Reduced eGFR

Stage 3 is divided into two sub-stages – Stage 3A in which eGFR is between 45 and 59 mL/min/1.73 m² and Stage 3B in which eGFR is between 30 and 44 mL/min/1.73 m².

Kidney function is moderately reduced, and symptoms may become more noticeable.

Stage 4 – Severely Reduced eGFR

eGFR is between 15 and 29 mL/min/1.73 m².

Kidney function is significantly impaired and the person may experience more severe symptoms and complications.

Stage 5 – Kidney Failure (End-Stage Renal Disease)

eGFR is less than 15 mL/min/1.73 m².

This is the most advanced stage of CKD, where the kidneys are no longer able to function adequately to sustain life. Dialysis or kidney transplantation is often required at this stage.

Homeopathy Treatment for CKD

Homeopathy treatment can help in slowing down the progression of CKD significantly. It is known for its lack of side effects which is very crucial as any medication that is too harsh on the body can severely impact kidneys as well.
