After so many people had positive vibes about the eye care post I wrote sometime back, I decided to do a small series on the same. Today, I talk about nephrology.
What is Nephrology?
In layman’s terms, “solutions to kidney problems”
Nephron is a functional unit in our kidney and hence the medical term Nephrology is used when it has to be treated or diagnosed with some problem.
In this article here, we will not be cracking any medical secrets or inventing solutions for the problem as we are not doctors and we are just laymen like you. But, we will definitely help you to find the right place to get treated from Nephrologists in Bangalore.
We all have health related issues at some point in life due to lack of care towards ourselves. Few problems get diagnosed easily and few become life threatening.
One of such major problems in today’s busy life is related to kidneys, which is one of the most important organs in human body for a healthy living. We have a kidney on either side of our spine and these are the organs which are mainly responsible to remove the toxic waste from our body and recycle good blood to the heart back again.
There are many causes which leads to damage of kidneys or CKD (chronic kidney diseases) or worst case scenario which is kidney failure (severe stage of CKD).
As they always say one problem leads to other in the body, it’s actually rightly said. Kidney problems occur in people who are already facing health problems like Diabetes or high blood pressure. These are the two worst enemies of kidneys. As, if these are not taken care of properly may lead to kidney failure which is fatal. Other health issues which may lead to kidney problems are:
- Injuries to the spine or kidney region.
- Genetic diseases (growth of unusual cysts in kidneys, which may even outgrow kidney at some point and causing terrible problem).
- Over dose of medicines or other drugs.
- Or other life threatening diseases like HIV or lupus.
How can you prevent this?
As the old saying goes “prevention is better than cure”, it is really unfortunate that lives today have become so stressful that people just in their twenties are also facing problems of diabetes, blood pressure, fatigue etc because of their poor lifestyle and poor health plan in cities like Bangalore.
Still if one manages to have a healthy daily cycle these problems can be avoided.
By healthy daily cycle, I mean basically 3 important things.
- Healthy diet.
- Good/sound sleep.
- Find at least one hour for physical activity like yoga or exercises.
There are people who are already having problems of diabetes and blood pressure. Even these people can avoid further problems just by making their lives a little disciplined and organized. By this I mean that they have to maintain their quality life so that it doesn’t harm them any further.
How do you do that?
- Avoid tobacco/alcohol
- Visit the doctor on a regular basis and get checkups done at regular intervals. It’s not that diificult to find kidney specialists in Bangalore
- Exercise at least 5 days a week.
- Diet with low fat and salt.
Symptoms of kidney problems
- Shortness of breath.
- Loss of appetite.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Bad breath
- Puffy eyes
- High blood pressure.
Bangalore being one of the best cities for treatment of any kind of problems in the country, nephrology in Bangalore is available in many hospitals and treatments for the cure as well. 🙂 Hope you got to increase your knowledge base by this article today! Stay safe.
Until next time,
Take Care! 🙂
