Ayurvedic Treatment for Chronic Sclerosing Glomerulopathy - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

Chronic Sclerosing Glomerulopathy refers to an inflammation of the tiny filters in the kidneys (glomeruli). The function of glomeruli is to remove excess fluid, electrolytes and waste products from the blood stream and pass them into the urine. It can occur suddenly (acute) or gradually (chronic). This can occur on its own or as a part of another disease such as lupus or diabetes.

In this disease, kidneys gradually lose their filtering ability. Less than 10% normal capacity of kidney function results in end stage kidney disease which is termed as a chronic glomerulopathy disease.

The acute form of glomerulopathy may more likely to develop chronic sclerosing glomerulopathy later on.


Signs and symptoms of chronic sclerosing glomerulopathy depends upon the acute or chronic form of the cause.

Signs and Symptoms of Acute Glomerulopathy Include:

  • Foamy urine due to excess protein (proteinuria).
  • Pink or brown coloured urine due to the presence of red blood cells in the urine (hematouria).
  • High blood pressure (hypertension).
  • Fluid retention (edema) with swelling evident on the face, abdomen, hands and feet.


The chronic form of glomerulopathy may creep up without showing any symptoms. There may be slow development of symptoms similar to the acute form.

Symptoms Include:

  • Blood or excess protein in the urine
  • Swelling in the ankles as well as on the face.
  • Frequent urination during night.
  • Abdominal pain.
  • Frequent nose bleeds.
  • Bubbly or foamy urine from excess protein.

Glomerulopathy may become so advanced that it may lead to kidney failure.

Some of the Symptoms Include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Insomnia
  • Dry and itchy skin


Chronic Sclerosing Glomerulopathy doesn't always have a clear cause. A genetic disease can sometimes cause chronic glomerulopathy. Other possible causes include:

  • A history of cancer
  • Certain immune diseases
  • Exposure to some hydrocarbon solvents.


  • High blood pressure: This can damage the kidneys and impair their ability to function normally. Chronic sclerosing glomerulopathy can also lead to high blood pressure as it reduces the kidney function and also influence how the kidneys handle sodium.
  • Diabetic kidney disease (Diabetic neuropathy): Anyone who is diabetic is at the risk of developing chronic sclerosing glomerulopathy, usually taking years to develop. Good control of blood sugar levels and blood pressure might prevent or can slow the kidney damage.


Tests to diagnose kidney function and make a diagnose of chronic sclerosing glomerulopathy include:

  1. Urine test: A urinalysis might show red blood cells and red cell casts in the urine which indicates a possibility of damage to the glomeruli.
  2. Blood tests to provide information about kidney damage and impairment of the glomeruli by measuring levels of waste products such as creatinine and blood urea nitrogen.
  3. Kidney biopsy: This test involves a special needle to extract small pieces of kidney tissue for microscopic examination. It is always necessary to confirm the diagnosis.


Modern treatment includes dialysis to remove the excess fluid and to control high blood pressure. The only long- term therapies for end-stage kidney disease in modern medicine is kidney dialysis and kidney transplant.
