- Kanefron - indispensable for kidney disease
- Treatment of urinary tract
Kidney disease often require very long treatment, in which the active drugs are replaced with plant, is not such a pronounced effect, followed by a break and treat it all starts again. These herbal medicines include kanefron that can be taken in combination with other drugs, as well as their own.
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?
(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?
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.
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.
Apply kanefron for the treatment and prevention of urolithiasis
Kidney stones - why women tolerate it harder?
- 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.
Indications and contraindications
Kanefron can be taken individually or as part of an integrated treatment of diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract. Kanefron apply:
- chronic inflammatory diseases of the kidney and bladder
Urinary bladder - structure and function
, 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).
Because side effects are known only kanefron allergic reactions which require discontinuation.
