Hypertension is the most common risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The effect of elevated blood pressure has increased the death and disability rates in recent years. There is an increase frequency of cardiovascular events in hypertensive patients with microalbuminuria compared to those with normal urine albumin excretion. Microalbuminuria is a marker of target organ damage in hypertension, as it results in functional and structural changes. This study is an attempt to evaluate the role of homoeopathic medicines in reduction of microalbuminuria of essential hypertension.
Objective: To evaluate the role of homoeopathic medicines in lowering Microalbuminuria in patients with Essential Hypertension.
Methods: The study design adopted was quasi experimental prospective, non-randomized without control. Each case was subjected to systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and Urine albumin excretion (UAE) at baseline, three months after the treatment and six months after the treatment.
Result: All parameters showed significant ‘p’ values. There was a mean fall of SBP, DBP and Urine albumin level after 6months of homoeopathic treatment.
Conclusion: In this study the Homoeopathic management is found to be effective in reducing the urine microalbumin of essential hypertension.
