Hydronephrosis | Ayurvedic Treatment For Hydronephrosis

Hydronephrosis is a condition related to the kidneys that occur when the kidneys are not able to drain urine out into the bladder. Resultant, the kidneys start to swell due to the build-up of urine.  It can be chronic or one-sided or bilateral.  If it occurs in one kidney, it is called unilateral Hydronephrosis and if both the kidneys get swell it is termed as bilateral Hydronephrosis.  Depending upon how it is affecting the body, you will need Hydronephrosis treatment in Ayurveda. Hydronephrosis can occur anywhere in the urinary tract or from the opening of the kidneys to the ureters. Any obstruction or blockage in the urinary tract can result in the urine to flow backward into the kidneys and cause Hydronephrosis.

Urinary Retention: Urinary retention means not passing the urine for a long time.

Nerve Blockage: The nerves or muscles around the kidneys can damage the kidneys or ureters, such as because of diabetes mellitus.
