Ayurvedic Treatment of Lymphangiectasis - Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis & Herbal Remedies

Lymphangiectasia is also known as protein-losing gastroenteropathy. It is a rare disease in which there occurs dilatation of lymph vessels of intestines resulting in excessive loss of lymph fluid into the gastrointestinal tract. It leads to hypoproteinemia, lymphocytopenia, edema, and immunologic anomalies. All these things lead to malabsorption.

LYMPHANGIECTASIA IS OF TWO TYPES

  1. Idiopathic Lymphangiectasia is also known as Waldmann’s disease.
  2. Lymphangiectasia secondary to lymphatic obstruction or due to increased lymphatic pressure.

WHAT CAN BE THE CAUSES OF LYMPHANGIECTASIA?

  1. The exact cause of this disease is not known in case of idiopathic Lymphangiectasia.
  2. In the second type of Lymphangiectasia, the cause can be improperly formed lymph vessels or blockage of lymph flow from the intestine. It can also be the result of obstructed lymphatics which leads to abnormal lymph drainage.
  3. Right-sided heart failure or pericarditis.
  4. Inflammation of lymphatics as in case of inflammatory bowel disease.

WHAT CAN BE THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF LYMPHANGIECTASIA?

  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Swelling of both or one leg, face and external genitalia due to retention of fluid. Low blood protein level leads to fluid retention.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Fatigue
  • Low weight or inability to gain weight.
  • Low blood cholesterol and blood protein.
  • Ascites, fluid collection in the abdomen.
  • Swelling of the whole body, i.e. anasarca.
  • Presence of fat in the stool.
  • Abdominal pain
  • Delayed growth in children.

HOW CAN BE LYMPHANGIECTASIA DIAGNOSE?

  • Endoscopy, i.e. looking intestine with a scope that is flexible.
  • Biopsy, i.e. examining samples of tissues from several affected areas of the intestines.

HOW CAN BE LYMPHANGIECTASIA TREATED?

In the conventional system of medicine, this disorder is mainly treated by dietary manipulation and sometimes may need surgical resection of small intestine's affected area. Treatment is continued for whole life despite of it remissions occur.

WHAT IS AYURVEDIC INTERPRETATION OF LYMPHANGIECTASIA?

In Ayurveda lymphatic system is called rasa dhatu which means "river of life". It is named so our lymphatic system is like a river with the long network in which lymph travels. This lymph consists of white cells which are responsible for the immunity so to maintain our immunity we need this river of lymph flow properly. Lymph and lymph vessels can be affected by aggravation of any of the doshas, i.e. Vata, Pitta, and Kapha Dosha. Ayurvedic treatment of Lymphangiectasis includes balancing of these doshas which will ultimately result in the healthy lymphatic channel. Treatment is done by pure and natural herbs.
