Ayurvedic concept of Diabetic nephropathy
Diabetic nephropathy is a widespread kidney-related complication. It occurs due to kidney damage caused by diabetes. Recently, it has been put forth that diabetic nephropathy is the major cause of several kidney related diseases worldwide. It has been estimated that more than 40% of diabetics (Type I & II) eventually develop kidney disease. The major enlisted causes are high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) & high blood pressure (hypertension). This condition is apparent via imbalanced proteins leakage (e.g. Albumin) through urine.
Our Ayurveda experts, doctors, and research scholars have deeply researched diabetic nephropathy in ancient texts of Ayurveda. In ancient times, diabetic nephropathy was primarily focused on balancing the Kapha Dosha and this module along with diabetes (Madhumeha). Natural protocols for diabetic nephropathy are believed to be preventing long-term complications and recurrence of diabetic nephropathy. The natural Ayurvedic combinations act as Deepana, Pachana, Srotoshodhak, Mutrala, and Kaphashamak.
Diabetic nephropathy natural remedies
Kulthi (Dolichos biflorus): It is a rich source of urease enzymes, that catalyzes the hydrolysis of urea & convert it in ammonia & carbon dioxide thus, exhibits kidney protective activities. The seed extract stimulates the glucose mobility apart from its existing cholesterol-lowering efficacy. Also, it converts linoleic acid into gamma linoleic acid in the body & can help in chemically induced diabetes while restoring normal antioxidant status in tissues. It, therefore, act as a potent anti-diabetic agent in diabetic nephropathy.
