CKD or Chronic Kidney Diseases are at a rise globally as well as in India. In India the risks of kidney trouble leading to chronic stages is becoming more and more common every day. The main cause for this is a lack of general awareness. This is exactly what the Kidney Care Society has been doing for the past seven years, spreading the light of awareness where previously there was only darkness of ignorance. Our approach has been two-pronged from the very start. Prevention and Early Detection are the paths that we have chosen to combat this silent killer. We have arranged a number of awareness camps and workshops over the past few years and managed to establish the danger of kidney diseases to common people, medical practitioners, health care sector workers and many more. We are fortunate that our efforts have not been in vain. We have managed to detect many cases of Kidney diseases at different stages and screened several thousand people. Our mission is to establish a model system meeting all possible standards for renal care and bridge the knowledge gap to prevent the spread of this silent killer.
Chronic kidney disease is a complex disease with multifaceted etiology. We provide holistic care for renal failure patients that include consultation, treatment, and yoga.
Diabetic kidney disease- Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease. About 1 out of 3 adults with diabetes have kidney disease.
Hypertension Nephropathy- It is a chronic condition and it is a serious risk factor for the development of end-stage kidney disease
Glomerular disease- This is a common cause of chronic kidney disease. Among patients on dialysis, about 15 percent have a diagnosis of glomerulonephritis.
Genetic kidney disease- ADPKD is the most common type of inherited kidney disease and it is the fourth leading cause of kidney failure.
Lupus nephropathy- This causes kidney inflammation | blood in the urine | protein loss| high blood pressure| impaired kidney function | and kidney failure.
Renal Transplant Clinic
We perform all kinds of Kidney transplantation along with pre and post-donor and recipient evaluation.
Living donor renal transplantation- when a kidney from a living donor is removed and placed into a recipient whose kidneys no longer function properly

Sustained low-efficiency Dialysis (SLED)- This is an increasingly popular form of renal replacement therapy for patients with renal failure in the intensive care unit.
HemoDia filtration (HDF)-It is usually used to treat acute kidney injury (AKI), but may be of benefit in multiple organ dysfunction syndrome or sepsis.
Intermittent Peritoneal Dialysis (IPD)- This is an old dialysis modality involving thrice-weekly therapy in a hospital or dialysis center setting.

Women’s well-being refers to the physical, mental, and emotional health of women, as well as their ability to live a full and meaningful life. Women’s well-being can be influenced by a variety of factors, including their environment, lifestyle, genetics, and social and economic factors.
Definition: Women’s well-being encompasses many aspects of health and wellness, including reproductive health, mental health, nutrition, exercise, and social support. It’s important to address all of these factors in order to promote women’s overall well-being.
Awareness: Awareness of women’s well-being is important because many women face unique health challenges that can impact their quality of life. These challenges include reproductive health issues such as menstrual disorders, infertility, and menopause, as well as mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and postpartum depression. Women also face a higher risk of certain conditions such as breast cancer and osteoporosis.
Causes: The causes of women’s well-being issues can vary depending on the specific condition. Some of the factors that can contribute to women’s health issues include hormonal imbalances, genetics, lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise, environmental factors such as pollution and exposure to toxins, and social and economic factors such as poverty and discrimination.
Nutrition plays a vital role in women’s well-being, as it affects overall health, including reproductive health, bone health, and mental health. Proper nutrition can help prevent chronic diseases, boost energy levels, and improve mood and cognitive function. Here are some important factors to consider when it comes to women’s nutrition:
- Macronutrients: Women need a balanced intake of macronutrients – carbohydrates, proteins, and fats – to support overall health. Aim to consume complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, lean proteins such as chicken, fish, and beans, and healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, and avocado.
- Micronutrients: Women also need a range of micronutrients, including vitamins and minerals, to support various bodily functions. For example, calcium and vitamin D are important for bone health, while iron is essential for healthy blood cells. Eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats can help ensure adequate intake of these important nutrients.
- Water: Staying hydrated is important for overall health, including proper digestion, circulation, and kidney function. Aim to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water per day, and more if you are active or in hot weather.
- Hormonal Changes: Hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause can affect women’s nutritional needs. For example, women who experience heavy menstrual bleeding may need to consume more iron-rich foods, while pregnant women need to consume extra calories and nutrients to support fetal growth and development.
- Lifestyle Factors: Lifestyle factors such as stress, sleep, and physical activity can also affect women’s nutritional needs. For example, chronic stress can lead to overeating or undereating, while regular exercise can increase energy needs and the need for certain nutrients.
Overall, women should aim for a balanced and varied diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. It’s also important to stay hydrated, manage stress, and engage in regular physical activity to support overall well-being. If you have specific nutritional concerns or health issues, it’s always a good idea to consult with a registered dietitian or healthcare provider for individualized recommendations.
Treatment: The treatment of women’s health issues depends on the specific condition and the severity of the symptoms. Treatment options may include medications, lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, counseling and therapy, and surgical interventions in some cases.
Do’s and Don’ts: Here are some general do’s and don’ts to promote women’s well-being:
- Get regular check-ups and screenings to monitor your health
- Eat a balanced diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins
- Get regular exercise, aiming for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per day
- Manage stress through techniques such as meditation, yoga, or deep breathing
- Seek medical attention promptly if you notice any changes in your health
- Smoke or use tobacco products, as they can increase the risk of various health issues
- Engage in risky behaviors such as unprotected sex or drug use
- Ignore symptoms of health issues, such as abdominal pain, irregular periods, or mood changes
- Neglect your mental health – seek support and treatment if you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues
In conclusion, women’s well-being encompasses many aspects of health and wellness, and is influenced by a variety of factors. It’s important to be aware of women’s health issues and to take steps to promote overall well-being through healthy lifestyle choices, regular check-ups and screenings, and prompt medical attention if needed.
