Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

Retroperitoneal fibrosis is an immune based disorder which causes blockage of ureters due to fibrosis. There is reduced urine output causing accumulation of toxins in the blood.

Though I do not follow that stream of medicine, I would like to put my points here.
In Ayurveda, there are a few treatments that have been described but their efficacy is still not known. You can try some after consulting an Ayurvedacharya.

Virechana and Basti panchkarma both are used for detoxification of intestines. It usually removes toxins accumulated in liver or gall bladder. These do not provide much help in removing the urea and other metabolites accumulated in blood as a result of renal disease.

I would advise you to take systemic steroids and immunomodulators in consultation with your physician along with these therapies for relief.

Hope this answers your query.I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Wishing you good health.

Regards.

she was diagnosed w/ group A beta hemolytic streptococcal infection that led to the development of acute glomerulo nephritis How did this progress from throat infection to renaldisease I have an 11 year old girl who is in end-stage renal disease. I am very confused and frightened. My husband asks the staff how this could have happened his little girl. The events leading to this situation began, and desires to learn more about how his daughter has diminished to the point of needing a kidney transplant. We we ask them how this all began, we were informed our daughter had a group A beta hemolytic streptococcal infection that led to the development of acute glomerulo-nephritis. We just would like for someone to explain/describe to us the progression from a simple throat infection to renal disease?

I am a 47 year old female weight 68kgs. I have IGA nephropathy confirmed by renal biopsy 6 years ago. I have gross haematuria and protein leakage as well as high urine albumin although serum RFT's are normal. I have very recently been diagnosed with moderate aortic regurgitation along with two mild mirtal valve leaks from an insurance echocardiogram. I have elevated blood pressure and am on Attacand to control this. Normal lipids, lft's and blood sugars. Normal resting and exercise ECG.I am very fit and play numerous sports at masters representative level. My cardiologist has recommended a wait and see process but does believe I will need an aortic vavle replacement in the years ahead.

Given my renal disease and the associated high blood pressure I wondered whether it is better to wait as long as possible to repair the valve or whether we should do this sooner rather than later to protect the kidneys. Naomi
