Your kidneys are responsible for filtering excess fluids and waste products from your blood. This waste is then eliminated in your urine. Chronic kidney failure refers to the loss of kidney function over months or years. In advanced stages, dangerous levels of wastes and fluids back up in your body. This condition is also called chronic kidney disease.
On many occasions, people who are Chronic Kidney Disease Patients also suffer from Lung/Pulmonary issues. As both kidneys and lungs are responsible for excretion of unwanted substances from our body, hence both are related, this results in a problem in one organ if the other is not functioning. If you’re in the early stages of chronic kidney failure, you may or may not have symptoms. Many of the early signs of kidney failure can be confused with other illnesses and conditions. This makes diagnosis difficult.
Both kidney and lungs are responsible to maintain pH balance of the blood. Id there is a slight variation in blood pH level, our body starts malfunctioning. The Kidneys are mainly responsible for excreting waste from our body in the liquid form, while the lungs are responsible for excreting the waste through gaseous form. Whenever, our kidneys start to malfunction, our lungs start to work over time in order to excrete the waste which is building up in our body over the course of time. Now in order to help the lungs continue working in the normal manner we must help the lungs externally. We can do this by practicing yoga and breathing exercises. CKD leads to the kidneys functioning at a lower capacity than normal, leading to the lungs over-exerting itself to keep up normal body balance. In order to support the lung so that it continues working optimally we must keep up breathing exercises and yoga practices.
Kidney involvement causes blood in the urine, but if the amount is very small, blood may not be visible. Kidney involvement also causes blood pressure to increase. The symptoms related to the lungs and the kidneys may not occur at the same time. Occasionally symptoms are severe enough to cause the lungs to fail (respiratory failure), and people have severe difficulty breathing and bluish discoloration of the skin (cyanosis). When the lungs fail, the tissues of the body do not receive enough oxygen, and the person may die.
Patients who suffer from CKD may also face issues related to the lungs. The human body has two main organs for excretion, viz. the kidneys and the lungs. If we compare our body to a machine, and the organs to the various parts in a machine; then we can assume that all the various parts need to work in tandem in order for the machine to work without any hiccups. Now, in CKD patients the kidneys are not working at their optimum level, naturally the lungs have to work overtime in order to make-up for the under-performing kidneys. Our kidneys get rid of the impurities in our body and extra fluid as well, the lungs on the other hand get rid of carbon di-oxide from our body through the respiration process.
Suppose one of our kidneys is not working properly, then the other kidney will be working overtime in order to compensate for the other kidney, however this is not enough in most cases and the lungs are also roped in to help the body get rid of its various impurities. This leads to the deterioration of our pulmonary health, which in turn may lead to pulmonary failure in the future. Failure of the two main excretory organs in our body leads to a plethora of other very serious health issues.
Our aim should be maintaining optimum working conditions of our various organs as much as possible. We can keep up our health status in various ways, although yoga practices have proven to be the most beneficial and consistent with the results after continued regular practice. Breathing exercises have benefitted CKD patients who have pulmonary issues as well. Apart from improving the renal and lung health in a patient, yoga has many other various health benefits for the long run. It has been observed that yoga has reduced hypertension, insomnia and has also improved diabetic health in patients.
Whatever the disease may be, be it CKD or something else entirely, when one organ stops working properly the other organs are also affected; however CKD and Lung diseases are very much related to each other and any change in one of these organs impacts the other as well. Hence, we must always be aware of what is going on inside our body, this will help in the early detection of any disease and may as well help in preventing the onset of any other health issues. However, yoga is a proven remedy and preventive method for everyone, especially CKD patients.
