Abstract
CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING OF ETIOPATHOGENESIS OF RENAL OEDEMA IN AYURVEDA W.S.R TO SHOTHA

Dr. Suma Kaggod*, Dr. Sunitha G. S. and Dr. Shilpa S.

ABSTRACT

Oedema can be caused by a variety of factors, including hypoproteinemia, in which a lowered concentration of plasma proteins decreases the osmotic pressure, thereby permitting passage of abnormal amounts of fluid out of the blood vessels and into the tissue spaces. Hence the oedema occurs when the small blood vessels (capillaries) leak fluid into the surrounding body tissue. This may happen as a result of increased pressure in (or damage to) the capillaries. The oedema maybe unilateral, bilateral, pitting and non-pitting or it may be localized or generalized etc. Depending upon these features the co-relation can be made in understanding the Etiopathogenesis of Shotha with special reference to Renal Oedema. Shotha explained in the classics in different ways as a lakshana in many diseases and sometimes as a disease. In such conditions it should be studied as a separate disease only and not as considering as a lakshana. In ayurvedic classics we get the description of 3 different words as Shotha, Shopha and Shwayathu, all are the synonyms of Shotha. The lakshanas of Shotha that are explained in the classics can becorrelated with the Oedema.

Keywords: Renal oedema, Shotha, Kleda, Hydrostatic pressure, Renin Angiotensin.
