Nephrotic Syndrome Ayurvedic Treatment

Nephrotic syndrome is not a disease in itself; instead, it results in a group of symptoms that indicate kidney disease, damage to the filters of the kidneys where the blood is filtered, and the excretion of too much protein from the body.

The small blood vessels in the kidneys constantly work to eliminate waste and other substances from the blood. The filtered waste is then transferred to your bladder and leaves your body in the form of the urine, eventually. Such vessels of the kidneys are known to be the glomeruli, which helps essential nutrients to stay in the blood and remove the digestion waste. When the kidneys are damaged, they get unable to retain protein in the body. This is called nephrotic syndrome.

Along with protein excretion, the other conditions that mark the nephrotic syndrome are:

  • Low levels of protein in the blood
  • High levels of fat and cholesterol in your blood
  • Swelling in your legs, feet, ankles, or hands

Who are at the risk of nephrotic syndrome?

There is no ambiguity in the fact that anyone can have nephrotic syndrome, but most of the cases come from men than women. This mostly happens in children between the ages of 2 and 6.

The other risk factors or conditions that can increase the risk of nephrotic syndrome are:

The disease that can affect kidneys such as focal segment glomerulosclerosis, which is the scarring of the tissues present around the kidneys. In this condition, the glomeruli become inflamed and scarred eventually.

Certain medications can also result in the loss of kidney function; these include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or analgesics. Since it is the kidney that has to remove such waste, the chemicals salts that are found in them are hard to eliminate by diseased kidneys.

What are the main causes of nephrotic syndrome?

The conditions that can affect your kidneys in the first place are known to be the primary factors affecting nephrotic syndrome. While there are secondary conditions also that impact the other parts in the first place and then to the kidneys, such conditions are called secondary factors responsible for nephrotic syndrome.

  • The primary causes of nephrotic syndrome are:

Minimal change disease: One of the leading causes of nephrotic syndrome in children is known to be minimal change disease. However, no doctor has the idea of the exact reasoning of how MCD affects kidney function. The tissues of the patients with MCD have healthy tissue when diagnosed under the microscope, and there are no ways you can figure out you have the disease. The common causes of MCD include infections from allergic reactions and excess consumption of NSAIDs.

FSGS: Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis occurs when the filters of the kidneys called glomeruli gets scarred. It is known to be the prominent cause of nephrotic syndrome in adults, primarily caused by a virus, such as HIV.

Membranous nephropathy: It is a condition in which the the membranes of the glomeruli get stocky. Membranous Nephropathy is mostly linked to cancer, malaria, hepatitis B, and lupus.

A blood clot in a kidney’s vein: Renal vein thrombosis is a condition in which veins connected to the kidneys get clotted and harm the kidneys eventually.

  • Some secondary causes of nephrotic syndrome are:

Diabetes: Diabetes means the blood has a higher amount of blood glucose. The damage to the nephrons of the kidneys because of diabetes is called diabetic nephropathy.

Lupus: It is an inflammatory disease caused when the body attacks its organs such as kidneys, joints, brain, heart, and lungs.

Amyloidosis: When an abnormal protein called amyloid gets build up in the blood, it induces Amyloidosis. This obstructs the blood flow to the kidneys.

What are the symptoms of nephrotic syndrome?

The four main signs that can show up the occurrence of nephrotic syndrome are:

Foamy urine: The condition that comes along with nephrotic syndrome is proteinuria. During proteinuria, a protein called albumin gets slip from the blood.

Edema: When the waste gets accumulated in the cells and tissues, it results in a condition called swelling of the fete, ankles, and around face.

Hypoalbuminemia: It is a condition in which the albumin level in the blood gets too low.

Make an appointment with your doctor if you think you have the signs of nephrotic syndrome.

What are the complications of nephrotic syndrome?

The possible complications include:

  • Blood clots: The loss of blood protein, which prevents clotting during nephrotic syndrome, increases the risk of thrombus in the veins.
  • High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides: As you lose more protein albumin with nephrotic syndrome, the liver makes more albumins to compensate. And, also the liver releases more triglycerides and cholesterol.
  • High blood pressure: The fluid retention results in increased blood flow against the wall of the stream.
  • Acute kidney failure: Too much fluid and waste retention in the blood can manifest acute kidney failure.
  • Developing Infections: People who have nephrotic syndrome has a risk of developing infections.
  • Chronic kidney disease: Untreated nephrotic syndrome may slowly take the form of chronic kidney disease over time. If the kidney function completely fails, you may need to take nephrotic syndrome ayurvedic treatment.

My name is Arya, residing in Gurgaon. My granduncle was diagnosed with diabetic nephropathy. Since he was allergic to allopathic medicines, ayurveda was the only option. We have an ayurvedic hospital named Karma Ayurveda nearby and gave it a visit. Their treatment plan was all-based on ayurveda, but it seemed way too simple. We were doubtful initially, but decided to start the treatment from there. After 15 days, he felt better. His kidney health also improved to a great extent. Edema also got reduced. The treatment is still going on and we all are hoping for a full recovery of his.



Hi, my name is Usman. I had never heard of the word Nephrotic syndrome, before I was diagnosed with one. Symptoms such as blood clots, fatigue, or loss of appetite hassled me a lot. I had taken few OTC medicines, but they hardly had any positive impact on my symptoms. After consulting with my family, I zeroed down on ayurvedic treatment. A hospital named Karma Ayurveda popped up on my browser and I searched more about their treatment plans. Few days later, I started my nephrotic syndrome treatment from there. The ayurvedic herbs given were potent and they helped me with easing down the symptoms. I’ve noticed an improvement in my kidney functions too. A thumbs up from my end.

I wanted to avoid further complications related to this disease, so started my treatment straightaway. However, the medications used were way too hard on my body. I checked out herbal treatments for this disease and came to know about Karma Ayurveda. I started my treatment from that hospital. The results were slow; however, my symptoms improved a lot in the next 4 months. Now, my kidneys are almost fine.
