Ayurvedic Treatment of Hydronephrosis

Hydronephrosis describes the condition where the urine collecting system of the kidney is dilated. This may be a normal variant or it may be due to an underlying illness or medical condition.

Normally, the kidney filters waste products from blood and disposes of it in the urine. The urine drains into individual calyces that form the renal pelvis. This empties into the ureter, a tube that connects the kidney to the bladder. The urethra is the tube that empties the bladder.

While hindrance or blockage is the most frequent cause of hydronephrosis, it may be due to problems that occur congenitally in a fetus (prenatal) or may be a physiologic response to pregnancy. Theoretically, hydronephrosis specifically describes dilation and swelling of the kidney, while the term hydroureter is used to describe inflammation of the ureter. Hydronephrosis may be unilateral involving just one kidney or bilateral involving both. A difficulty of hydronephrosis is decreased kidney function. The increased pressure of extra fluid within the kidney decreases the blood filtration rate and may cause structural harm to kidney cells. This decrease in function is reversible if the fundamental condition is corrected but if the hydronephrosis lasts many weeks, the damage may be lasting.

Causes of Hydronephrosis

There are abundant causes of hydronephrosis that are categorized based upon the location of the swelling and whether the cause is intrinsic (located within the urinary collecting system), extrinsic (outside of the collecting system) or if it due to a modification in function.

Symptoms of Hydronephrosis

There may or may not be direct symptoms of hydronephrosis depending upon the underlying cause. Individuals with acute hydronephrosis, for example symptoms from renal colic due to a kidney stone begin with an acute onset of intense flank or back pain radiating to the groin, associated with nausea, vomiting and sweating. Colicky pain comes and goes, its intensity may cause the person to writhe or roll around or pace in pain. There may be blood seen in the urine.
