All You Should Know about Hydronephrosis

by Shipra Sharma Kidney Treatment in Ayurveda

Hydronephrosis is a condition in which kidneys swell due to urine build up inside the bladder. This happens because of the incapability of the kidneys to drain out urine to the bladder because of some underlying obstruction. The condition can happen in one or both of the kidneys, but if left untreated may harm each leading to kidney failure.

The urinary tract’s main job is to remove wastes and fluid in the form of urine from the body. The urinary system is composed of four subparts, the kidneys, the ureters, the bladder, and the urethra. The urine is produced when the kidneys filter blood thereby removing excess waste, minerals, and other leftovers after digestion. The urine is then stored into a part of the kidney called renal pelvis. From this renal pelvis, the urine passes down to a thin tube called ureter. The bladder when gets filled with up with the urine slowly empties itself with the help of another small tube called the urethra. Hydronephrosis occurs when there is a blockage in the outflow of urine or it is flowing in the reverse direction, causing enlarging of the renal pelvis, a type of Kidney Problem. 

Causes of hydronephrosis

Hydronephrosis is caused by some other underlying conditions that clog the passage of the urine flow. Causes of Hydronephrosis include:

An obstruction in the ureters that connects the kidneys to the bladder. 

A kidney stone 


An enlarged prostate

Birth defect in the ureter

Narrowing of the ureter 

Tumors in the ureter

Scarring of kidney tissue

Hydronephrosis is the type of kidney disease that can be easily reduced with the help of Hydronephrosis Ayurvedic Treatment, a natural treatment to prevent kidney related disorders. The causes of Hydronephrosis are worked upon when a patient takes Ayurveda as a treatment to rescue.

What are the symptoms of hydronephrosis?

If you have hydronephrosis, the body will exhibit a number of signs as a complication of hydronephrosis:

Pain in the abdomen




The frequent urge to urinate

Pressure when urinating

Obstructing the flow of urine increases the chance of having urinary tract infections. Hence, prolonged avoidance of UTI can also lead you to the stage of hydronephrosis and hence you should immediately take kidney disease treatment to prevent further complications.
