Hi doctor,

I am suffering from glomerular kidney disease. I am facing sleepless nights for more than one to two months. Shall I use drugs to get sleep?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You try to exclude diet such as white flour products, sugar, tea, coffee, chocolates, cola, fatty foods, fried foods, excessive use of salt and strong condiments.
  • Breakfast should contain fresh fruits, dried fruits and whole cereals.
  • Lunch should consist of large mixed salad. A cup of hot milk sweetened with honey at bedtime will be beneficial to get sound sleep.
  • Regular exercises like jogging, joint exercises, yogasanas are ideal exercises. Do pranayama (breathing exercise), relaxation techniques and hearing soft music at bedtime may be helpful.
  • Hot foot bath at bedtime has significant effect on sleep.
