    • SCOPE OF HOMOEOPATHY IN CRF In cases of CRF, homoeopathic treatment can help to improve patient’s quality of life through relief of troublesome symptoms, limit renal damage and preserve existing renal functioning as well as prevent complications.
    • MY EXPERIENCES IN CASES OF CHRONIC RENAL FAILURE
    • Cases of grade 4-5 ckd treated with homoeopathy
    • CASE OF CRF (grade 5 CKD) WITH DM/ CAD A 68 yr. old female with mesomorphic build (wt. =75 kg.) and mole on left cheek reported with c/o recurrent

    • ALUMINA IN CASE OF CRF • Keeping in view the build of patient, chilliness with extreme exhaustion, costiveness and tendency to eruptions in winters, the patient was prescribed ALUMINA in LM potency. • Subsequently, his frequency of dialysis not only decreased but his creatinine levels also came down with marked symptomatic improvement.
    • PRE-TREATMENT
    • POST TREATMENT
    • CLINICAL TIPS: China officinalis in POST DIALYSIS WEAKNESS Considering that the process of dialysis causes sudden osmosis of large quantity of body fluids, China officinalis in LM POTENCY serves as an important remedy to be considered in cases of this debilitation from ‘LOSS OF VITAL FLUIDS’.
