How much contribution of decoction in increasing kidney disease
According to doctors, the number of patients complaining of body pain and restlessness has increased due to unnecessary consumption of immunity boosters. In most patients, kidney damage has started due to the increase in the level of serum creatine. Dr Rajesh Kumar, an expert in kidney diseases, says that the decoction is hot and drinking too much of it can cause ulcers in the mouth and stomach. Due to an overdose of things like cinnamon, giloy, black pepper in the decoction, problems like stomach pain, heartburn or acidity start. If its treatment is not started on time, then the chances of kidney damage increase. Consuming too much decoction is harmful for the liver too.
These side effects can occur if you drink the decoction in excess
According to doctors, drinking decoction in excess can also cause problems like bleeding from the nose, sour belching and problems in urine. Especially due to infection in urine, the risk of kidney infection also increases. Those people, who already have heart related diseases and take blood-thinning medicines, they have an increased risk of internal bleeding inside the body due to the consumption of more decoction.
