Kanefron - generic drug for the treatment of kidney disease

Kanefron (correct name - kanefron H) - is a complex herbal preparation (contains herbs centaury, lovage root and leaves of rosemary drug) for the treatment of diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract. Kanefron has a diuretic, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial action. When taken together with antibiotics it enhances their action.

It is used to treat inflammatory and infectious-allergic diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract, as well as to prevent the formation of kidney stones.

The mechanism of action kanefron

The structure includes three kanefron plant components: centaury herb, lovage root and leaves medicinal rosemary. He produced in the form of pills and an aqueous-alcoholic extract oral pharmaceutical company Bionorica (Germany).

The drug is a diuretic, antispasmodic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action.

All the plants belonging to the kanefron contain substances (phenol carbonic acids, essential oils, etc.) with a broad spectrum of antimicrobial action. Their antimicrobial effect may also enhance the antimicrobial action of antibiotics by increasing the concentration of antimicrobials in urine and kidney parenchyma, resulting in increased effectiveness of antibiotic therapy.

Anti-inflammatory effect kanefron depends on the action of rosmarinic acid, which inhibits the release of substances that can cause inflammation.

The mechanism of action is due to its composition kanefron: its constituent herbs reinforce the therapeutic effects of each other. For example, a diuretic effect kanefron due to the expansion of the renal vessels under the influence of essential oils to improve blood circulation and a decrease in renal epithelial processes reuptake (reabsorption) cells of the renal tubules of sodium and water, that is, removal of salts and fluids from the body. This, together with sodium excreted is output potassium (not disturbed fluid balance). Kanefron increases the excretion of uric acid salts Uric acid - a normal level?  Uric acid - a normal level?
   (urate), it prevents the formation of kidney and urinary tract stones of urate and alkaline urine, which also prevents stone formation.

In some kidney diseases (eg, glomerulonephritis) in the urine is released protein - kanefron reduces the amount by improving the blood supply to the kidneys and pelvis, reducing the permeability of the capillaries of the kidneys - all affect the filtering and re-absorption (reabsorption) of protein, so if its admission number protein excreted in urine is reduced.

Antibacterial action kanefron provide all its constituent components. They contain phenol carbonic acids inhibit protein synthesis in bacteria, essential oils and flavonoids disrupt their membranes. Bioflavonoids bacteria inhibit the action of hyaluronidase (an enzyme degrading hyaluronic acid epithelial tissue of the urinary tract), which limits the spread of infectious agents in tissues. The diuretic effect of the delay prevents bacteria in the urinary tract.

The resulting preparation has an antibacterial action even on the infectious agents which do not exhibit sensitivity to the broad-spectrum antibiotics.

Antispasmodic effect kanefron at the expense of its constituent flavonoids and essential oil of rosemary Essential oils and conception: can help the roses?  Essential oils and conception: can help the roses?

The anti-inflammatory effect of the drug due to rosmarinic acid, which prevents the formation of prostaglandins - biologically active substances involved in inflammatory reactions. Further, rosmarinic acid has an antioxidant effect.

Kanefron features of action is that the urinary excretion of organic phenol carbonic acids and their metabolic products (metabolites) leads to a change in the acidity of urine and creating an environment uncomfortable for the life of bacteria. As a result of complex influence kanefron on kidney tissue of renal function is restored and reduces urinary excretion of protein.

To appoint

Kanefron prescribed for the treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract - cystitis and pyelonephritis. The drug may be administered simultaneously with any other antibacterials (their efficiency increases) and after treatment with these preparations. When not serious infectious and inflammatory processes kanefron can be used alone.

The indication for admission kanefron are also infectious and allergic diseases of the kidneys - glomerulonephritis. Recovery exposed kanefron renal function helps reduce protein loss in these diseases.

   - It prevents stone formation. After surgery, crushing stones (lithotripsy) it contributes to the rapid excretion of urinary tract stones debris.

During the course of treatment kanefron patient must drink more fluids.

 , It is prescribed, even during pregnancy;
  • chronic infectious and allergic diseases of the kidneys (glomerulonephritis);
  • chronic interstitial nephritis (inflammation of the connective tissue of the kidneys);
  • for preventing the formation of stones in the urinary tract, including after surgery to remove these stones.

Contraindications reception kanefron with hypersensitivity to its components of the patient. To receive the pills contraindication is for children up to 6 years, and for receiving drops - alcoholism (alcohol solution can cause a relapse of the disease) and liver disease (alcohol is a specific poison for the liver cells).

Renal angiomyolipoma - benign tumor

 renal angiomyolipoma
 Angiomyolipoma - a benign tumor, which usually consists of cardiovascular, muscle and adipose tissue. Angiomiolipom Most (about 80%) are classified as sporadic tumors. They usually occur in adults; the average age of patients with angiomyolipoma - 43 years. Renal angiomyolipoma is much more common among women than among men: one man with this disorder are four women. Approximately 20% of the formation of these tumors is associated with tuberculous sclerosis. Such varieties angiomyolipomas kidneys often detected in children as a rule - before the age of ten years.


Symptoms of renal angiomyolipomas

In the early stages of angiomyolipoma does not usually cause any symptoms - if the tumor is still very small, and does not put pressure on adjacent structures. About 77% of the tumors of this type, the diameter of which is less than 4 cm, do not cause any symptoms; On the other hand, a more or less pronounced symptoms were observed in 82% of patients with angiomyolipoma diameter greater than 4 cm. The tumor growth may be the following symptoms:

The feeling of heaviness in the left or right side of the torso. Some patients sometimes appears dull ache in this area, which may be enhanced if certain movements. Its localization depends on exactly where the tumor is located, so that the right kidney angiomyolipoma causes pain on the right side. In addition, pain is often radiate - it can be felt in the chest and lower abdomen. Symptoms, which causes the left kidney angiomyolipoma, many patients may seem particularly alarming, because the pain in the left side of the body is often taken as a sign of a heart attack or other heart problems. Although in most cases this is a symptom of other reasons, as it appears it's worth to undergo a medical examination.

  • Hematuria - presence of blood in urine Blood in the urine - a reason for serious concern  Blood in the urine - a reason for serious concern
  • Pallor;
  • Decrease or increase in blood pressure;
  • Weakness;
  • Dizziness;
  • Lightheadedness and fainting.

Large angiolipoma kidneys can often find fingers.

Rupture of blood vessels in angiomyolipoma can cause severe pain, and in some cases - nausea and vomiting. The appearance of such signs usually indicates severe internal bleeding, and requires immediate treatment for medical assistance.


Causes of renal angiomyolipomas

The exact causes of angiomyolipomas are still unknown. Many experts suggest that the appearance of tumors of this type may be due to hereditary predisposition. Another theory is that the growth angiomyolipomas may cause other renal diseases, such as pyelonephritis. While this is only a hypothesis - a direct link between these diseases and tumors of this type are not identified.


Renal angiomyolipoma and pregnancy

It is believed that the growth angiomyolipomas can occur under the influence of female sex hormones, whose level increases dramatically during pregnancy. Often such tumors detected in pregnant accidentally, during a routine ultrasound. We also know many cases when accelerated tumor growth after pregnancy. Perhaps this is the reason that angiomiolipomu kidney more often diagnosed in women. Fortunately, these tumors are usually no adverse effects on pregnancy, and does not represent a serious risk to mother and child.


Diagnosis of renal angiomyolipomas

When the above symptoms as soon as possible to see a doctor.

Symptoms angiomyolipomas buds similar to the symptoms of certain malignant tumors in particular, such as renal cell carcinoma Carcinoma - how to prevent disaster?  Carcinoma - how to prevent disaster?
   and certain kinds of liposarcoma. These violations should be excluded in the differential diagnosis.

If you suspect a angiolimiolipomu kidney doctor can conduct an overall examination of the patient and, in particular, palpation of the kidneys: large tumors often can be detected in this way. However, in order to confirm the diagnosis requires the use of medical imaging techniques such as ultrasound, computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. If, after one of these procedures, the doctor will doubt about the nature of the tumors in the kidney, it may appoint a biopsy.


Treatment of renal angiomyolipomas

Patients with angiomyolipoma small special treatment is not usually required. After identifying a benign tumor A benign tumor - is not always safe  A benign tumor - is not always safe
   your doctor may recommend the patient to undergo regular examinations to watch for its growth, and to seek help when a severe pain or other signs of intense growth angiomyolipomas. If a tumor is causing heavy bleeding that can cause life-threatening conditions, require surgery. In some cases, removal of angiomyolipomas can be carried out as a preventive measure - most often it is done, if the diameter of the tumor exceeds four centimeters.

Doctors do not recommend to treat renal angiomyolipomas folk remedies. In folk medicine, there are several remedies for this disorder (for example, fruit juice burdock, which recommend taking small doses for one month), which has long been used, but whose effectiveness has not been proved. Furthermore, their safety in this disease is also not confirmed. Since angiomyolipomas can grow very quickly, and the violation is better to rely on the professional medical help.



In some cases, in the absence of timely treatment of angiomyolipoma may impair liver function. Some patients as a result this may require dialysis Dialysis - maintains normal body  Dialysis - maintains normal body
 . Much more complications angiomyolipomas are internal bleeding, which can be dangerous for the patient's life, but doctors usually not resolve their effects, and avoid serious damage to the health of the patient.
