Ayurvedic Treatment for Medullary Nephrocalcinosis - Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Remedies

MEDULLARY NEPHROCALCINOSIS

The condition Medullary Nephrocalcinosis refers to the deposition of calcium salts in the medulla part of the kidney. It is the most common form of nephrocalcinosis. Due to the concentrating effects of the loops of Henle and the biochemical constituents of the medulla part as compared to the cortex, it is 20 times more common than cortical nephrocalcinosis.

It can occur in premature infants also. It may be caused by the use of certain medications, supplements, infection or any other condition that lead to high levels of calcium in the blood or urine.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF MEDULLARY NEPHROCALCINOSIS?

It is a condition connected with conditions that cause hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia and the increased excretion of calcium, phosphate or oxalate in the urine. A high urine pH can lead to nephrocalcinosis. The causes may include:

  • Primary hyperparathyroidism
  • Hypervitaminosis-D states
  • Phosphate supplementation
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Medullary sponge kidney
  • Osteoporosis due to immobilisation, aging, menopause or steroids.
  • Premature birth

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF MEDULLARY NEPHROCALCINOSIS?

Individuals may not have symptoms or may have symptoms related to the condition causing medullary nephrocalcinosis.

Some of the Symptoms are:

  • Blood in the urine
  • Fever and chills
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Severe pain in the abdominal area, sides of the back, groin area or in the testicles.
  • Later symptoms may be similar with chronic kidney failure.

TREATMENT

Treatment of medullary nephrocalcinosis includes treating the underlying condition of the disease. The goal of the treatment is to prevent more calcium deposition in the kidneys. Medications that cause calcium loss are typically stopped.
