KEYWORDS: Kidney disease,
Kidney failure, herbal drug, Kidney disease has always under concerned area since a long time specially in developing and under developing countries. It is one of the leading cause of management. death in world today. Incidence of kidney diseases leading to kidney failure is increasing day by day. The use of herbal drugs for the prevention and treatment of various diseases is now considered in thought throughout the world. A number of extracts of natural products have been reported to show protective effects against nephrotoxicity. Many herbal drugs have shown their potent nephroprotective effect due their antioxidant, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic properties. WHO has recently reported that traditional medicines have been existing in therapeutic practice even hundred years before the development of modern medicine. As herbs and herbal drugs have clinically proven effects like immunomodulation, adaptogenic and antimutagenic, they play a vital role in treatment of kidney diseases progressive to failure.

AYUSHDHARA, 2016;3(1):500-508 Most drugs found to cause nephrotoxicity exert approximately 20 percent of community- and hospital toxic effects by one or more common pathogenic acquired episodes of acute renal failure. [4-6] Among older mechanisms. These include altered intraglomerular adults, the incidence of drug-induced nephrotoxicity may hemodynamics, tubular cell toxicity, inflammation, be as high as 66 percent. [7] Although renal impairment is crystal nephropathy, rhabdomyolysis, and thrombotic often reversible if the offending drug is discontinued, the microangiopathy.
