It could be due to urinary tract infection. Do urine re/me, culture&sensitivity. Treatment. Take a full course of antibiotic even if you feel better after consulting doctor, drink plenty of water, pain reliever (anti spasmodic), avoid coffee/alcohol/spicy food which irritates bladder.

Dear if you do not have any other symptoms then get urine test done to rule out infection. For now try to decrease your fluid intake to 2 litres a day and see what happens. If frequency still remains the same then you need usg (kub). Dr. Kiran mehta.

Hi, it has three main causes: lack of blood flow to the kidneys direct damage to the kidneys themselves urine backed up in the kidneys these can happen when you: have a traumatic injury with blood loss are dehydrated go into shock during a severe infection called sepsis have a blocked urine flow, which can happen with an enlarged prostate take specific drugs or are around certain toxins get complications with a pregnancy, such as eclampsia and pre-eclampsia, or related hellp syndrome kidneys that don't work well for longer than 3 months is called chronic kidney disease (ckd). It's dangerous, because you may not have any symptoms until a lot of damage, that often can't be repaired, has happened. Diabetes (types 1 and 2) and high blood pressure - both are the most common causes.

I hv urinary retention and I have been informed that Kub ultrasound cost is rupees 1000. What cost do I have to bear if some stone etc is found in ultrasound or some other problem.

Dear lybrate user, its better if you conduct usg of whole abdomen. It will cost around rs 1500. In case you have kidney stone, the usg report will describe the dimension of the stone. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But if the size of the stone is more than 3mm then you should surely go for surgery.

Q. L have three renal stones in lt. Kidney, 18mm, 12mm, 11mm, so what should I do?
Homoeopathic medicine BERBERIS VULGARIS Q ( Dr Reckeweg) HYDRANGEA Q ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 10 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily at a minimum difference of 20 minutes from each other and eating. For Kidney pain start taking below given homoeopathic medicine in between DIOSCOREA Q ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 10 drops every 1-2 hrly in 10 ml luke warm water depending on severity of pain Start drinking atleast 3-4 bottles of soda water daily. Report after 15 days Instead of reducing your calcium intake, focus on limiting the sodium in your diet. Extra sodium causes you to lose more calcium in your urine, putting you at risk for developing another stone. Limit your sodium to 2,000 milligrams each day. There are many sources of hidden sodium such as canned or commercially processed foods as well as restaurant-prepared and fast foods. Calcium oxalate kidney stones are the leading type of kidney stones. Oxalate is naturally found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, grains, legumes, and even chocolate and tea. Some examples of foods that contain high levels of oxalate include: peanuts, spinach, beets, chocolate and sweet potatoes. Another common type of kidney stone is a uric acid stone. Red meat and shellfish have high concentrations of a natural chemical compound known as a purine. High purine intake leads to a higher production of uric acid which then accumulates as crystals in the joints, or as stones in the kidneys.To prevent uric acid stones, cut down on high-purine foods such as red meat, organ meats, and shellfish, and follow a healthy diet that contains mostly vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and low fat dairy products. Limit sugar-sweetened foods and drinks, especially those that contain high fructose corn syrup. Limit alcohol because it can increase uric acid levels in the blood and avoid crash diets for the same reason. Eating less animal-based protein and eating more fruits and vegetables will help decrease urine acidity and this will help reduce the chance for stone formation. You should also be sure to drink at least 6-8 glass of water a day to help reduce the risk for stone formation.

I'm suffering from continuous sensation of urine and it makes me very uneasy and lethargic. This started when I last had sex with my partner and it has been 4 days since It hasn't stopped. The sensation reduces for sometime and then starts again. It is irritating and I can't do anything. I went to my family doctor with my mother but I could not tell him the whole story. It is my vagina that is getting irritated. So please help me and suggest what to do.

Dear lybrate user, a kidney stone is mainly formed due to the accumulation of the minerals present in urine. Such accumulation occurs mainly due to low intake of fluids. Continous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But as the size of the stone is more than 3mm, you should surely go for surgery.

Dear looking to your age mostly cause would be prostate enlargement. Ideally you need to see a urologist and be investigated properly. However for prostate one can try drugs like tamsulosin 0. 4 mg at bedtime which helps a lot of patients. At the same time make sure you are not constipated as it increases the urinary problems.

Abundant consumption of water is required which can result in increased urine output and simultaneously flushing out the stone crystals of relatively smaller sizes.

You don't need to worry about the diabetes unless n untill you get it confirmed. For that get an hba1c report done which will confirm your sugar status and will let you know whether you are in diabetic, pre-diabetic or non-diabetic range. You may get back once the report is done and do let me know if you have any other symptoms apart from frequency of urine and thirst. Thanks.

Prolactin is the hormone that stimulates milk production by the breasts. Small elevations in prolactin cause irregular menstrual periods or complete loss of menses (amenorrhea), ability to ovulate (remain fertile) and may cause milky discharge from the breasts (galactorrhea). In addition, women may have a reduction in their sex drive. The normal prolactin level is < 20 ng/ml.------------------------the pain and pinching sensation in abdomen can be due to -------------- 1. Pelvic inflammatory disease,(pid) as you experience white discharge while urinating if accompanied by foul mell, itching and frequent urination pointing toward yeast infection----------------------- 2. Normal white discharge if it is clear and odorless------------- so, I will advise you to undergo another confirmatory diagnostic tet and discuss the reportss with me--------------ct scan brain to rule out pituitary prolactinomas-----------------------

Diabetes can create other problems it's better to consult an endocrinologist and get clinically checked and investigated to find the reason for the swelling in the meantime cut down on salt consumption and let her sit or lie down with foot end raised.
