Clinical Cases

A Case of Acute Renal Failure

Written by S. Arul Manickam

Dr. S. Arul Manickham presents a case of acute renal failure.

The 65 yr old male patient came with the presenting complaint of uremia and his urea and creatinine (Homeopathy Treatment for Acute Renal Failure) levels in the blood were markedly elevated. He had been admitted in hospital for dialysis but he was discharged from hospital voluntarily due to poor economic status.

Urea-234, creatinine-4.79, urine albumin-1+

Dyspnea on walking, complete loss of appetite, prostration, pain in the all joints since 10 days.

While I was taking his case the patient asked that I give medicine only for his loss of appetite and said he would give details later. Then I asked his wife for a detailed case history.

Appetite good, no dyspnea, no weakness, no joint pain. He walked to my clinic. Before that he was lifted by two people, and without that support he couldn’t stand. Without any support he came to my clinic alone to get medicine.

He was very happy to come to my clinic and told me “You have saved my life and I am very grateful to you.”


Urine out put—good

No weakness, joint pain or dyspnea.
