Do you know that just like any organ, our kidneys are bound to shrink because of certain health conditions? Normally kidneys are about 10 to 12cm, just like the size of a fist. But in kidney atrophy, the size reduces greatly to 2 or more inches less than the normalized. There are two prominent reasons why this happens, first is because of the part of the kidney that does not develop from birth and the second being loss in the size of the kidney after birth. In some cases, kidney shrinkage does not need any special treatment but if you have shrinkage in both the kidneys, you need to take kidney shrinkage treatment in India. Having both kidneys smaller than the actual size can even lead to kidney disease. The condition may even lead to kidney failure if no special treatment is taken.

Ayurvedic treatment for kidney shrinkage

The treatment for atrophy depends on the underlying cause of kidney atrophy. For instance, those with kidney atrophy because of urinary tract infection need ayurvedic medicine to facilitate urine flow. Some patients may have kidney singular while others may have bilateral kidney atrophy. Based upon the type, ayurvedic treatment for kidney shrinkage is suggested to the patients. The ayurvedic treatment works to eliminate the condition permanently from the body while increasing the functionality of the kidney. Ayurvedic treatment also prevents the condition of kidney removal if there is repeated infection in the body. The Ayurvedic treatment for kidney shrinkage also includes following a renal-diet to restore the health of the kidney.
