​KIDNEY IMPAIRMENT

INTRODUCTION

Renal failure refers to the kidneys’ inability to carry out their excretory duties, which causes the blood’s nitrogenous waste products to be retained.

The cross section of a kidney.

​KIDNEY IMPAIRMENT

Kidney failure, also known as renal failure, is a condition in which the kidneys are unable to perform their intended role of removing waste from the blood.

Renal failure that occurs suddenly is referred to as acute kidney failure. This usually occurs in patients who are already critically ill and develops swiftly over a few hours or days.

Chronic renal disease’s end stage is more common when kidney failure occurs. When around 90% of kidney function has been lost, this condition is referred to as “end-stage renal disease.”

SYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY IMPAIRMENT KIDNEY IMPAIRMENT

Swelling in legs, feet, or ankles

Headaches

Itching

Trouble sleeping

Weight loss

Poor appetite

Little or no urine

Muscle cramps, weakness, or numbness

Have pain, stiffness, or fluid in your joints

Feel confused, have trouble focusing, or have memory problems

WHAT CAUSES THE DISEASE? THE DISEASE?

CAUSES

NAME OF MEDICINE

​Diabetes

A high blood glucose level, also known as sugar, harms the filters in your kidneys

High blood pressure

Kidney blood vessels can be damaged by high blood pressure, which could affect how well they function to eliminate waste and extra fluid from your body

Polycystic kidney disease

A disorder called polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic condition that develops cysts inside the kidneys

Lupus

An autoimmune condition called lupus has been linked to organ damage, joint pain, fever, and skin rashes

CURRENT TREATMENT TREATMENT

Renal failure can be treated with dialysis or a kidney transplant. Dialysis treatments or transplanted kidneys will partially replace the function of damaged kidneys by removing wastes and surplus fluid from the body. As a result, many of the symptoms will improve.

CAUSES

NAME OF MEDICINE

Peritoneal dialysis

This type of dialysis utilises your stomach lining to filter toxins and extra fluid from your body

Hemodialysis

A process to purge the blood of waste materials and extra water. A machine pushes the blood through a filter outside the body, cleaning it, and then pumping it back inside. Usually three times a week, this therapy can be received at home or in a facility

Kidney transplant

A surgical process in which the body receives an artificial kidney that is functional. The patient has a longer functional life as a result of this surgery. A difficult aspect of kidney transplants is finding a compatible kidney donor

WHAT WE OFFER? OFFER?

STEM CELL RESEARCH - SCITRON SCITRON

Scitron is a Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), derived from human umbilical cords. Upon treatment, the cultured cells are injected intramuscularly / intravenously into the patient. The cells are characterized by low immunogenicity. Hence, it is very safe, tolerable and free of side effects.

HOW IT WORKS? WORKS?

kidey-impairment_orig

The mechanism of how MSCs encourage the healing of damaged kidney.

Different stem cell types can be formed from mesenchymal stem cells. By merging with the renal tubular cells, these cells can develop into mesangial cells. These cells help to revive kidney stem cells and promote renal cell survival by secreting growth factors to initiate the body’s natural healing process.

In order to encourage the healing of damaged kidney tissue and reduce levels of general inflammation, these stem cells will be injected into the body. Additionally, the use of stem cells in conjunction with organ transplants has already reduced the need for a lifetime of immunosuppressive medications.
