Abstract

Microalbuminuria is the first stage of Nephropathy; pathology will progress with uncontrolled diabetes and hypertension. It is a complication of diabetes so according to Ayurveda it can be considered under the Santarpanjanya disease, where Kleda (waste) is main causative factor. Albuminuria is nothing but the excess loss of Dhatu Saramsa (finest tissue) due to weakness of Ayanadourbalya (system). The progress of this structural damage gradually leads to a condition in which function of the Srotas (system) is totally get impaired (Sanga). This is actually happening in glomerulosclerotic stage of diabetic nephropathy. As function of membrane of Mootradharakala (urinary tract) becomes fully impaired, there is failure in the removal of Kledamsa (waste) and Udaka Bhavas (ions), which leads to their accumulation in the body. This will lead the further progression. As per Charaka quotation, physician need not to name the disease, he should investigate the Sthana (location), Samsthana (cause) and Samutthana (symptoms). So here humble attempt is done to through light on microalbuminuria in Ayurvedic view to understand the disease and plan out the treatment.
