KIDNEY AFFECTIONS -CASES [Kidney Affections -cas
I have had two cases of Bright’s disease following scarlatina. Tube casts were present. Albumen, general anasarca. Heart weakness. Retinitis albuminuria. There seemed to be extensive destruction of tissue, and as the cases also presented a profuse desquamation, I gave them Calcarea sulph. 6x, which speedily brought about a cure. (A.E. Fisher, M.D).
G.S., an old man of 77, consulted me for what he called a “laziness of his kidneys.” Urine was, in fact, very scanty and loaded with albumen. The case seemed, at first sight, to be a hopeless one; he was also forgetful and quite nervous. I gave him Calcarea phos. 6x tr., a dose every two hours in alternation with Kali phos. After six weeks’ treatment, urine was normal, his memory was somewhat restored, and since six months he has not complained. As to diet, I only recommended to him to eat asparagus just as much as he could at his meals, and continue the use of the aforementioned medicines. (E.A. de Cailhol, M.D).
