Kidneys are to bean-shaped organs located below the rib cage, one on each side of your spine with a function to filter out blood and remove waste through urinary secretion.
The kidney also plays a critical in maintaining the levels of fluids in the body, by removing extra fluids to make urine.
Furthermore, the kidney also regulates electrolytes, blood pressure, maintains acid-base balance, produces hormone calcitriol, renin, and erythropoietin.
Kidney diseases are a class of medical conditions associated with reduced function of the kidney, in cases, complete loss of kidney function such as kidney failure.
Kidney dysfunction reduces the body's ability to clean and filter extra water from your blood, leading to fluid retention and high blood pressure in the early stage. Believe it or not, people with a kidney function of 10% do not show signs of kidney dysfunction and symptoms.
In other words, kidney disease often has no symptoms until at a very advanced stage.
In the US, the leading causes of kidney failure and the end stage of chronic kidney diseases are diabetes and high blood pressure.
Kidney failure or renal failure or end-stage kidney disease is a medical condition in which the kidneys are functioning at less than 15% of normal.
Ficus religiosa or sacred fig is a species of fig belongs to Moraceae, the fig or mulberry family, native to the Indian subcontinent and Indochina.
On finding a potential phytochemical for the prevention and treatment of kidney diseases, researchers elucidated the effects of nephroprotective and curative effects of F. religiosa latex methanol extract against cisplatin-induced acute renal failure.
* Group 1 was administered acacia (2% w/v) of 5 ml/kg throughout the experiment;
* Group 2 was treated with a single dose of cisplatin (5 mg/kg i.p.) on the 1st day;
* Group 3 (200 mg/kg p.o.) of extract control for the 1st to 10th day,
* Group 4 (200 mg/kg p.o.) of extract from the 1st to 10th day and a single dose of cisplatin (5 mg/kg, i.p.) on 11th day while
* Group 5 received the same dose of cisplatin on day 1 and extract (200 mg/kg p.o.) from the 7th to 16th day.
* However, all parameters were restored back to the near-normal with the 200 mg/kg of extract in the curative and protective groups.
