Renal Calculus (Hissat-e-kuliyah) and its Management through Unani Modalities - An Overview
The objective of the present study is the explanation and scientific validation of Unani modalities for the management of renal calculus. Renal calculi are known as Hissate Kuliyah in the Unani system of Medicine. It is one of the most common urologic problem affecting people of all countries and ethnic groups. In the United States, ~13% of men and 7% of women will develop kidney stones during their lifetimes, and prevalence is increasing throughout the industrialized world.
In some regions, the risk is higher, notably, Saudi Arabia, where the lifetime risk of developing renal stones in men aged 60-70 is just over 20%. The prevalence of renal calculi varies according to the geographical area & socio-economic conditions. India has a high incidence of renal calculi especially in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, and Madhya Pradesh.
The treatment modalities present in the Unani system of Medicine are quite effective with no or minimal adverse effects. In addition to this,the Unani treatment is cost-effective, economical and by far accessible. Therefore, the efficacy and outcomes of different treatment modalities described in the text should be further evaluated and validated by a randomized clinical trial.
