Gomutra (Cow’s Urine) is being used in many disorders and it is explained in Ayurveda as a treatment for many disorders. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a serious condition associated with premature mortality, decreased quality of life, and increased health-care expenditures. Untreated CKD can result in end-stage renal disease and necessitate dialysis or kidney transplantation. Risk factors for CKD include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. In renal failure there is raised level of blood urea, creatinine and RBCs in urine. It can be compared with Paitik Mutrakrichra (~Dysuria due to Pita Dosha)/Adhogatta Raktapita (~blood from lower orifices)/Paitik Prameha (~frequency due to Pita Dosha)/Rakataja Mutrakrichta (~Dysuria with blood). A Clinical study was done on known patient of CKD on OPD basis, Gaur Brahman Ayurvedic College and Hospital, Rohtak, Haryana. There was a rise of serum urea and serum creatinine after administering Gomutra. It is concluded that Gomutra should not be used in renal failure.
