Aapko Prostate gland ke taklif hai. Prostate gland bada ho jane se peshab ke nali ko pressure deta hai. Aap SONOGRAPHY (Prostate) ke saath PSA level karvaye. Agar prostate enlargement hua toh aapko medicine or prostate surgery ke jarrurat lag sakti hai depending on the results. Once the investigation results are back you can consult your General Practitioner or Urologist and let me know.

Hello, I have some burning issue in my male reproductive organ. I am pretty sure it's because I came in contact with my wife who had uti. She now has klebsiella pneumoniae in her urine culture test. I think I might have contacted it. Please tell me what all should I do and do I go see a doc? Also what is the complete treatment i.e medicines plus tests?

If your problem has started only after contact with your wife, then it is a likely possibilty that you too have got a urinary tract infection. Get your urine examined for presence of pus cells and if seen, seek further advice.

MD - General Medicine
General Physician, Hisar
Iron rich foods are green leafy vegetables like spinach, mustard leaves, coriander, mint leaves, apple, aonla (amla)- pickle or candy or" murabba" cumin (jeera), sesame (til), dates, jaggery. Choose what she can eat. For stone no special precaution, though oxalates are more in leafy foods but no need to restict. Just drink lot of water.

Homeopath, Sindhudurg
In the homeopathic system of medicine, one can easily remove the kidney stones naturally with simple homeopathic medicines. The advantage of homeopathy is that you can avoid surgery and it also cures the tendency of the body to form stones. This means that the chances of the stones being formed again are next to nil and reduce pain ..consult me by clicking on consult option for homoepathic treatment without side effects.

Renal faliure due to polycystic kidney disease requires medical treatment only. Dialysis may required in some cases. But do consult your nephrologist to rule out any obstructive cause which can corrected surgically or by endoscopy.

My age is 25 and I am 2nd month pregnant. My height is 5'2.5" ans weight is 53 kg. I used to sleep too much (12-15 hours a day sleep). I love to sleep. I used to go for urine discharge very frequently (25-30 minutes). I am suffering from this since last one year but I never took it serious but now as I am pregnant it irritates me to go too much times for urine discharge. And at night also I need to go 4-5 times at least. After drinking just a glass of water frequency increases. Please suggest what to do.

You certainly need to get a few tests done especially your sugar level, and urine routine, if these are normal, then you may be having a sensitive bladder, we suggest you to do a couple of strengthening exercises for your bladder ,and also take a balanced diet with normal physical activity. Get back to us if you need further assistance or advice from us.

Lower UTI - 8 Common Symptoms

Gynaecologist, Dehradun
Lower UTI - 8 Common Symptoms

A Urinary Tract Infection(UTI) can occur in any part of the urinary tract including the kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra. The causes of a UTI can be many, with bacteria being the most common cause. In fact, UTIs are generally more common among women as they have shorter urethras, which make it easier for the UTI causing bacteria to pass through to the bladder.

The symptoms of UTI vary depending on the area of your urinary tract that has been infected. These symptoms are:

Lower urinary tract infection:

1. Bladder cystitis, in which the lining of bladder and urethra become inflamed and irritated

2. Dysuria, which is a burning sensation during urination

3. A frequent or intense urge to urinate, even though little comes out when you do

4. Urinary urgency, which is the sensation of having to urinate urgently

5. Cloudy, dark bloody or strange-smelling urine

6. Cramping or pressure in lower abdomen or lower back

7. Pelvic pain in women particularly in the center of the pelvis and around the area of pubic bone

8. Mild fever or chills indicating that the infection may have reached your kidneys

Upper urinary tract infection:

1. Fairly high fever with fatigue

2. Shaking chills with a feeling of discomfort

3. Nausea and vomiting

4. Flank Pain, which is pain in the back or side, usually on only one side at about waist level

Since pregnant women are at an increased risk of contracting UTIs, their urine should be checked during prenatal visits to prevent unrecognized infection that can cause pregnancy complications.

Diet - How Important It Is For Kidney Transplant?

Diet - How Important It Is For Kidney Transplant?

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure that patients of kidney disease go through in order to replace a non functioning kidney with a live one that is healthy and functions well. Other methods to treat this disease also include dialysis, which basically is an artificial way of doing what our kidneys are designed to do. When dialysis does not work, many doctors recommend a kidney transplant. A replacement or donated kidney can come from a living donor or a non-living donor. This new kidney will mostly work towards keeping the blood clean, which is a function that stops when the old and diseased kidneys fail.

So, here's a list of five essential facts that you need to keep in mind if you are looking at a kidney transplant:

  1. Donors: While there are living and non-living donors, the doctor will have to ensure that your donor is someone who has no medical history of complications, kidney disease or any other medical condition like diabetes or hypertension. Also, the donor would have to have two proper functioning kidneys. Further, one of the most important factors is the blood group. The blood group of the donor and the patient must match for the transplant to be possible.
  2. Procedure: During the surgery, the patient will be under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision in the lower abdomen area and the blood vessels of the new kidney will be connected surgically with the vein and iliac artery of the patient. Thereafter, any excess fluid will be drained before wrapping up the surgery.
  3. Rejection: The patient's body may also reject the kidney. The immune system of the patient may mistake the new kidney as an attacking body and its natural defenses may work against it, which will lead to complications. For this, doctors usually prescribe immunosuppressant medicines that will help in preventing such an eventuality.
  4. Longevity: While a living donor's kidney may last longer, a non-living donor's kidney will not enjoy such a long life. In such cases, a second transplant can be conducted.
  5. Diet: After the transplant, the patient will be required to go through a number of measures like coughing to show that the lungs are clear, as well as administration of fluids and some amount of examination and dialysis. Also, the patient will have to have a special diet that includes raw fruits and vegetables, and plenty of non-fat dairy ingredients.

A kidney transplant is a major operation that can change your lifestyle in the long run.

Dear vinayam there is no ideal measurement why because there r many factors involved to empty our bladder. in a healthy person he may urinate 6-7 times. but in children and elderly the frequency will be more. the food we eat, medicines like diuretics will increase urine out put, in uncontrolled diabetes it's more

My mother has one kidney. So is there any specific food that she must not eat? Please advise.

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Bangalore
Choose and prepare foods with less salt and sodium. Buy fresh food more often. Sodium is added to many packaged foods. Use spices, herbs, in place of salt. Donot use salt substitutes eat small portion of protein foods bake, roast, stew, grill, broil, or stir-fry foods instead of frying. Cook with nonstick cooking spray or a small amount of olive oil instead of butter. If shes told to limit potassium, drink apple, grape, or cranberry juice instead of orange juice.

Having uti problem, white discharge and smell and diarrhea Dr. can you consult some medicine for uti and discharge and ways how to prevent it.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, MCH- Urology

You seem have severe form of pelvic inflammatory disease. Consult Gynaecologist immediately. Start Fluoroquinolones in scheduled dose after consulting Gynaecologist for your UTI. Don't waste time, as with PID your tubes might get blocked and you might suffer from infertility problems in future.

Dear lybrate-user Thanks for sharing your concern. If may be due to dryness of vaginal passage which causes friction and bleeding or may be a urine infection. Initially for 15 days you could use KY jelly or vaseline to lubricate, thoda may reduce bleeding after sex. If blood is still present then consult Gynae for further test and urine culture.
