Consulted Dr. Prasad Kulkarni (Yoga and Naturopathy) for Kidney Complications
I recommend the doctor
I was happy with Doctor friendliness, Value for money, Treatment satisfaction, Wait time
I was diagnosed with acute FSGS of both kidneys in 2013. Subsequently I have been following up with a Nephrologist with blood and urine tests every 2-3 months. My Urine Albumin, which is the first indicator of reduced kidney function, had been stable at (+) upto last year. However, recently, it increased to (++), which was a matter of concern.
I approached Dr. Prasad, who took me in for acupuncture therapy, yoga, and dietary change in Jul 2017. I underwent two cycles of 15 sittings each of acupuncture. However, staying alone, I could not adhere to the dietary recommendations. In the last one month of the second cycle, for a variety of avoidable and unavoidable reasons like reunions, functions, etc. , I ended up consuming alcohol on many days. Due to the rains, I missed my walk and pranayama also.
When I got my urine and blood reports after the second cycle in Aug 2017, my Urine Albumin count had reduced to (+). The other surprise was that my cholesterol levels also, were within limits without any statin intake. This improvement was solely through acupuncture thearapy. Had I been a better patient, I am sure the Urine Albumin would have gone down to 'Traces'.
This improvement is a credit to Dr. Prasad's ability and proficiency in his field. His applies himself to his patient's problems as if they are his own personal problems. That is the level of dedication he has. After a few meetings, one would realize that a reason for this, is the old values ingrained in him.
Should anyone want to verify my claim, get my contact details from Dr. Prasad, and I will share my Urine and Blood reports.
