Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global public health problem with increasing incidence, prevalence and adverse effects. The aetiology of CKD is multifactorial, including diabetes mellitus, hypertension, glomerulonephritis and other factors like dyslipidaemia, uric acid and renal calculi has implicated potential risk in development of chronic kidney disease. The initial and most common presentation which help us in diagnosing CKD and assessing the progression include eGFR and albuminuria. In this study we have considered albuminuria as the main predictor and evaluated all the patients before and after the homeopathic intervention.
We have administered individualised homoeopathic medicine following the detailed case taking, clinical examination, and evaluation and laboratory investigations. Within the 1 months of the treatment all the patients have showed improvement symptomatically, the patients were followed up for the rest of 3 months, and urine albumin creatinine ratio reassessed after the treatment. Clinical, laboratory investigation documentation of the patient’s condition and post-intervention progress is available. As the study has conducted in a small number of patients in a short duration of time, we are uncertain to determine the effectiveness. For the effective result more high-quality clinical study among a larger population for a longer time duration is needed.
