My right side kidney there is stones. so, please tell how to get relief from pain?
What are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history one may prescribe pain relievers.

It is some sort of urine infection. It is advisable to get urine routine and microscopy exam done along with an Ultrasound (KUB) to check for kidney stoneBefore that give her septran-ds tablet twice daily for 3 days. Ask her to drink plenty fluids that will wash the infectious agent. Syrup alkasol 2tbsf twice daily (in half glass water).Cranberry juice if you can find then please drink.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user. Since the stone is situated in the right ureter it has a chance to be expelled by medicine through urine. Take homoeopathic berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 20 days. If the stone is not expelled within this span of medication of 20 days then you should go for surgery.

You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones.

I am 68 years and kidney patient and on dialysis once in a week. Water restriction 1 ltr /day. Please suggest me the diet.

Maintain and monitor your urine alkalinity to ph 7.2 Self monitor your blood pressure also, to 110/70 • Avoid foods that are kidney toxins. An alkaline vegan diet that avoids all animal proteins (ground meats, dairy, egg whites, milk, cheese, beef, pork, chicken), soy proteins, yeast, alcohol, concentrated sugars seems to make us feel better. Fruits and Vegetables to avoid: salted foods, tomato, potato, eggplant, peppers, celery, star fruit, strawberries, plums, prunes, soy, margarine, crisco, potato chips and peanuts. While kidney functioning is still excellent, dietary things that help PKD are also high potassium foods; plant based diets with an emphasis on raw fruits and vegetables; whole food starches such as corn on the cob, sweet potatoes, rutabagas, turnips, winter squash. Include a few selected pre-soaked grains (spelt, quinoa, rye, oats, Kashi, brown rice) and pre-soaked nuts (almond, coconut, chestnut). Enjoy plenty of leafy greens, broccoli, radish, and below ground root crops. Soak all beans, legumes, grains, seeds and nuts before eating. This lowers their phytic acid content, making these foods more digestible and alkaline. Salt intake and cholesterol levels are two things that we can alter. Take personalised dietary expert advice. Thanku. Remember, milk, Coffee, Lemonade, Soup, Ice cream, Tea, Juice, Soft drinks, Gelatin, Sherbet, Water, Ice cubes, Alcohol, Popsicles, Pudding, Yogurt, Gravy are to be counted for fluid consumption.

You are worrying unnecessarily. Urine color will be determined by the food you eat to a large extent. Yes, it is true that this may also mean concentrated substances that the body finds it necessary to discharge. So it is a good thing. If you find other symptoms of pain while urinating, fever, and any other medical signs, only then do you need to consult a doctor. I however, advise you to drink a lot of water every day to flush out toxins from your body more frequently. Then you will notice clear urine after the first discharge.

Dear you must understand that recurrence of uti is due to some cause and one must find out that cause and treat it to prevent recurrent infection. To do that get urine test and if pus cells are more than 5 then get urine culture done and the give suitable antibiotic for at least 15 days. Then check urine again. So far if you have any investigations done then post reports along with pictures and then I can help.

Slow passing of urine is not due to proteins in urine. It may be a sign of prostate. You will need a usg (sonography) with residual urine to rule out prostate. Urine proteins suggest either infection or slight kidney damage due to diabetes or blood pressure. Please do 2 tests s. Creatinine and microalbumin to rule out these pathologies.

Kidney Disease? 9 Things You Must Do!

DNB (Nephrology), MD, MBBS
Nephrologist, Delhi
Kidney Disease? 9 Things You Must Do!

The medical term for protein leak in urine is commonly known as Nephrosis and if the leakage is too much it is termed as Nephrotic Syndrome. Such a situation can lead to kidney failure, if not treated on time can be highly dangerous. There can be a number of causes for this condition and it is detected by carrying out a urine test. The treatment for Nephrosis is a long-term process and is done mainly to prevent kidney failure.

The treatment for Nephrosis aims at controlling the protein leak and prevent kidney failure. It is very important for people who are new to kidney disease that they know about these below mentioned nine things, in order to stay strong.

9 Important things you must be aware of kidney disease:

  1. The feeling of helplessness due to the occurrence of kidney disease can be overcome by educating yourself. Individuals should learn everything about kidney disease and can gain vital information even from the Internet.
  2. It is very obligatory that the advice of the doctor must be followed by an individual suffering from kidney disease. It is not indispensable that the kidney disease always leads to failure of kidney and to prevent it from damage, it is necessary to comply with the orders of the Doctor.
  3. It is very important that you stick to a diet, which would keep you healthy and protect your kidneys from any further damage. You should be careful about everything you eat, and you can gain assistance on your diet from a renal dietitian.
  4. When you suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease, the blood value becomes very important to gauge the condition of your disease and whether it is getting worse or stable. From time to time, the healthcare provider would check your urine and blood, and he would also monitor your blood pressure and blood sugar.
  5. You can take help from the support group and accept their assistance. Your family is your best support system at the time of need, thus involving them is very important.
  6. You must make sure that you are getting the required care you need, and you need to educate yourself by communicating as well as asking questions.
  7. You will feel much better by being active, so do things that make you happy. You can exercise regularly but after taking advice from your doctor. Your main focus must be to keep yourself healthy.
  8. A positive attitude is anytime helpful in healing a disease. You can listen to music that entertains your mind and helps you stay positive.
  9. It is not difficult to stay healthy even with kidney disease, as the positive feeling would eventually help you face your problems. You must plan ahead and be ready for kidney transplant without getting worried.

Most importantly, it is important that you spread awareness and help people tackle the situation without any difficulty. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a Nephrologist.
