Control your fluid intake after7pm. Before going to bed urinate, before going to bed for few minutes remind your mind to get up for urination. Its training your mind, it works or you keep an alarm to get up 2 to3 hrs after sleep to get up &urinate. Consultation &drug therapy sos.

Hi lybrate-user, kidney stones and white discharge are not related. Please visit gynaecologist for internal examination to rule out infection. As you are getting recurrent infections please get it diagnosed what type of infection it is so that it can be treated.

Dear , excessive urination in the night can be a symptom of diabetes. Due to waking up frequently in the night you are not getting enough rest and that is the reason you fell sleepy during the day. Please get your blood sugar fasting pp, urine sugar and hba1c done and consult so as will be able to guide you.

Hi, Frequency of urination is due to a few reasons 1) Diabetes mellitus 2) Diabetes insipidus 3) Irritable /overactive bladder 4) urine infection 5) drinking coffee and tea (they are diuretics) 6) drinking lots of fluids I am not sure if you are experiencing any other symptoms like increased thirst, increased hunger, losing weight, burning sensation when urinating, fever, Lower abdominal pain etc. You could get a fasting and post prandial blood glucose done to rule out diabetes. A complete urine examination with microscopy will rule out any urine infection. It would also help if you could consult a physician or urologist to diagnose your problem and who can provide appropriate treatment. Thank you.

Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice...... 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG.

Mr. lybrate-user, Please understand that long standing diabetes even with very good glycemic control, does lead to kidney damage. Further if a patient has consistent hyperglycemia (high blood glucose over the years) then damage more severe. One of the indicators of reduced kidney function is increased creatinine level. Apart from diabetes persistent high blood pressure also adds to kidney damage. Plus she has very low hemoglobin, that again puts stress on heart. In such a situation only local expert clinicians can help. Because patient needs constant monitoring. If she is not on insulin then it is essential that she is shifted on to insulin. Properly planned diet should be given avoiding high protein intake. Very regular blood glucose monitoring is also required. So please consult a good competent physician. Surat has really good doctors. Thanks.

Hello, take Berberis vulgaris Q, 15 drops with water thrice daily. Take Cholesterinum 3X , 2 tabs twice daily. Home remedies :- 1. The acidic nature of apple cider vinegar stops the liver from making cholesterol that is responsible for forming the most common type of gallstones. It also plays a key role in dissolving gallstones and alleviating pain. Mix one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. Drink it whenever you have a gallstone attack. This will significantly ease the pain within 15 minutes. you can add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of lemon juice to a glass of warm water. Drink it on an empty stomach in the morning. Doing this regularly for weeks can dissolve gallstones and prevent pain. 2. Pears can also provide relief from gallstone pain and other symptoms. The compound pectin present in pears helps soften cholesterol-filled gallstones, which in turn get flushed out of your body easily. Mix half a glass of pear juice with half a glass of hot water. Mix in two tablespoons of honey. Drink this juice three times a day for two weeks. peel and de-seed some pears. Cut the pears in small pieces and cook them in water for about 20 minutes. Eat a bowl of the warm cooked pears twice daily for two weeks.
