Kidney Failure Treatments in Kerala

You might have seen your friends or family members who suffered from kidney failure cases. Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure are very common causes of renal failure. Both the diseases are caused by consuming high fat foods and high sodium diets. It is good to be aware of the actions that we need to take to reduce the risk of having renal disease.

Kidneys are the 2 bean shaped structures below our abdomen. Both the kidneys are responsible for carrying out the function of maintaining the proper balance of water and nutrients. When they are unable to get rid of the excess waste and water this leads to kidney failure.

Symptoms of Kidney Failure :

  • Swelling of ankles and feet
  • Weight gain
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness and Tiredness

When to Take Dialysis.?

In some cases the kidneys are damaged and even a possible repair is not going to help. Then the patient's last resort is always a dialysis. The dialysis process involves usage of a machine that performs filtration. This cannot be done in single visit. You may be asked to visit your doctor every week for a regular checkup.

Why Kidney Failure Happens ?

There are two types of diabetes. Diabetes 1 and Diabetes 2.
Diabetes 1 is a result from an inappropriate response from the immune system. This happens when the pancreas is unable to produce insulin required to transport sugar from blood to the cells. Diabetes 2 usually develops in the later stages of life. In both the diabetes high levels of sugar circulate through the bloodstream, which can cause severe damage to most of the organs especially kidney.

High blood pressure is the second villain in the renal failure case. This is related to arterial disease and high sodium content in the diet which comes from high fat foods. High blood pressure damages the blood vessels leading to the kidneys and troubles the filtration. The best way to prevent this is to improve the diet and do regular exercise. Do regular checkup and make sure the blood pressure is normal.

Chemotherapy For Bladder Cancer

Different methods are used for people with bladder cancer. It is depended on the stage of cancer.
Most common bladder cancer treatment options are surgery, radation therapy, immunotherapy and chemotherapy. In some cases the doctors combines two or more treatment options, like radiation therapy with chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Surgeries are mostly performed in the early stages.

Signs and symptoms :
1. Blood in the urine.
2. Pain during urination
3. Appetite or weight loss
4. Low-grade fever
5. Pain in the pelvic area or lower back

In the early stage when the bladder cancer is identified, then the tumor is removed through the urinary opening, or urethra. A small surgical instrument called laparoscope is used to find the tumor and remove the tumor. This surgery is also known as transurethral resection. If the bladder cancer has spread the bladder has to be removed partially or sometimes completely. Partial bladder removal(cystectomy) is done for patients with less invasive bladder cancer. This usually occurs at the top of the bladder. In men, Radial cystectomy often includes removal of the prostate, the lymph nodes near the hip and semen conducting tubes. For women, a radial cystectomy includes removal of reproductive organs, part of vagina and the urethra.

Why Chemotherapy ?
You may have chemotherapy in one of the following ways
  • During radiotherapy treatment (concommitant chemoradiation)
  • Before radiotherapy
  • Before or after surgery
If you have chemotherapy before your operation or radiotherapy, it can shrink the tumour and aims to make the treatment work better.Clinical trials have shown that chemotherapy before surgery, or before or during radiotherapy, can lower the risk of bladder cancer coming back in the future.

Chemotherapy is often used in combination with surgery. The treatment affects not just the bladder, it affects the entire body. The patients who have undergone chemotherapy would experience nausea, bruising, headache and fatigue. Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill the cancer cells. Chemotherapy uses anti cancer or cytotoxic drugs to destroy cancer cells. They work by disrupting the growth of cancer cells. One or more liquid drugs are introduced into the bladder and left for several hours and drained out later.
