Acute Kidney Failure

Kidney's primary function is to cleanse blood and eliminate urine from the body. The functioning of the kidneys is affected by a variety of factors such as age, physical health, and occupation. A healthy kidney performs its functions flawlessly. However, there are times when the kidneys fail to function properly and produce difficulties in the body. These are referred to as acute or renal failure.

What is Acute Kidney Failure?

Your kidneys abruptly lose their ability to eliminate waste from the blood in this situation. In addition, as your kidneys lose their filtering function over time, dangerous waste products and an unbalanced chemical composition accumulate.

What are the signs and symptoms of acute kidney injury (AKI)?

Every sickness has symptoms, and it is critical to identify them as soon as possible; otherwise, the disease will cause other issues in the body. AKI symptoms are common, and they are sometimes misdiagnosed as signs of other disorders. However, if you are experiencing many symptoms at the same time, it may be time to contact a doctor and have a check-up.

What risk factors contribute to AKI (Acute Kidney Injury)?

Any disease occurs when there is an imbalance in the activities of the body or an unhealthy lifestyle. However, the following are the most common causes of AKI:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Being hospitalized, especially for a serious condition that requires intensive care
  • Advanced age
  • Blockages in the blood vessels in your arms or legs (peripheral artery disease)
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney diseases
  • Liver diseases
  • Certain cancers and their treatments
How is acute renal failure diagnosed?

To determine whether you have AKI, you will need to have certain lab tests done to assess your levels of pollutants in your blood.

Creatinine levels

Creatinine levels indicate how successfully your kidneys eliminate waste from your blood. Creatinine is a chemical by-product of the energy-generating processes in your muscles. Healthy kidneys filter the blood to remove creatinine, which the body then excretes as a waste product in urine.


It is another waste product found in your blood. Urea is created when protein in the diet is broken down. This, like creatinine, is eliminated from your blood by your kidneys. However, urea levels begin to rise when your kidneys fail. The blood urea nitrogen (or BUN) test is a common blood test that offers important information about how well your kidneys are working. A BUN test determines the amount of urea nitrogen in your blood.


Potassium is an electrolyte found in your blood that helps to regulate the water content of your blood. As a result of kidney disease, potassium levels might be high or low. A specific test determines the amount of potassium in your blood serum, which is the fluid portion of your blood.


Sodium is an electrolyte that helps your body's fluid balance. Because your body is unable to remove the required amount of salt, high levels may suggest that your kidneys are not functioning properly or at all. A sodium blood test determines the amount of sodium in your blood. Minerals having electrical charges help to regulate your body's fluid volume and pH balance (the acid-base ratio).

What is the AKI treatment?

The treatment of AKI is determined by the state of your kidneys. Patients may be forced to undergo transplantation or dialysis if their condition has deteriorated significantly and no other therapeutic options remain. However, in most situations, kidneys recover entirely on their own. So, let's start with the natural therapy method, in which you don't have to visit a doctor or take any allopathic medications.


Improving kidney function naturally is one of the most successful ways to treat Kidney disease, and nutrition plays an important role in this. Eating healthily and in moderation might boost your productivity. Doctors will advise you to reduce your intake of salt and potassium because they can induce renal dysfunction. These two chemicals are eliminated by your body. However, if your kidneys are not functioning properly, they cannot be removed until they have healed adequately.

You must consume high potassium foods such as bananas, oranges, potatoes, and tomatoes while avoiding low potassium foods such as apples, strawberries, grapes, and cauliflower.


Another option to boost kidney efficiency is to take the medication suggested by your doctor. This may be good for all of your kidney-related problems, but it will not enhance kidney function. You must adopt a proper diet and remove any negative habits that are or may be damaging your kidneys.


It has been scientifically shown that doing gentle exercise such as "Yoga" helps improve the working and health of the kidneys. Matsyendrasana, Bhujangasana, and Paschimottanasana are among Yogasanas. Include these Asanas in your regimen and notice the difference.

  • Yoga promotes strength, balance, and flexibility.
  • Yoga relieves back discomfort.
  • Yoga enhances blood circulation throughout the body.
  • Yoga is good for your heart.
  • Yoga relaxes you, allowing you to sleep better.
