Dear Lybrate User, *improper diet and sedentary lifestyle, working for long periods in direct sunlight, doing excessive physical work, excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages, tea, and coffee, indulgence in heavy, oily, sweet, and indigestible foods and reduced intake of fresh vegetables, salt, and alkaline-producing foods, drinking too little water, diet high in meat, fish, and poultry and suppressing the urge to pass stools and urine can cause urinary stones. *Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. *Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water, etc. *Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. *Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate.

Kidney stones can be cured with medicines which are combination of herbal and homeo. We have specialized medicines for fatty liver as well as for allergies. All the conditions can be cured with our medicines only you don't need to undergo surgery or operations. I will suggest you to avoid surgery there is no need of it. You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Kidney gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract. Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming. If the crystals remain tiny enough, they will travel through the urinary tract and pass out of the body in the urine without being noticed. You can connect with me and I will provide you with treatment by which you will be getting cured with kidney stones naturally. The medicines are combination of herbal and homeopathic only.

What Are Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)?

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Kota
What Are Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)?

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are bacterial infections in the urinary system. They’re very common and usually not serious, though there can be exceptions.

Your urinary tract includes your bladder, kidneys, ureters (two tubes that go from your kidneys to your bladder), and urethra (how urine goes out of your body from your bladder).

If you have a UTI in your kidneys, doctors call it pyelonephritis. If it’s in your bladder, the medical term is cystitis.

Who Gets Urinary Tract Infections?

Anyone can. But UTIs are more likely if you:

  • Are a woman
  • Have had UTIs before
  • Have a condition that affects your bladder's nerve supply (including diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and spinal cord injuries)
  • Have been through menopause
  • Are overweight
  • Have something that blocks the passage of urine, such as a tumor, kidney stone, or an enlarged prostate
  • Use a contraceptive diaphragm or spermicide for birth control
  • Have a catheter, a tube placed into the bladder to drain urine from the bladder into a bag outside the body
  • Are a man who has sex with men, has HIV infection, or hasn’t been circumcised

Most of these traits also raise the chance that a simple bladder infection may become a more serious kidney infection, or turn into sepsis (an infection that has gotten into your bloodstream). For pregnant women, a kidney infection can raise the odds of delivering a baby too early.

Causes

  • Most UTIs are due to bacteria that are normally found in your gut, such as E. coli. Other bacteria that can cause them include staphylococcus, proteus, klebsiella, enterococcus, and pseudomonas.
  • Some bladder infections in both men and women are linked to two sexually transmitted bugs: Chlamydia trachomatis and mycoplasma. Another parasite, trichomonas, can cause similar symptoms.
  • Women are more likely to get urinary tract infections, because the tube that goes from the bladder to the outside (the urethra) is much shorter than in men. Because the urethral opening is closer to the anus in women, it’s easier for bacteria from stool to get into the female urethra. A urinary tract infection may be linked to sex.
  • In men, a bladder infection is almost always a symptom of another condition. Often, the infection has moved from the prostate or some other part of the body. Or it may mean that a tumor or something else is blocking or interfering with the urinary tract.
  • Chronic kidney infections in children sometimes happen because of a structural problem that allows urine to flow back from the bladder to the kidneys (reflux), or because the bladder doesn’t empty completely.

What is the reason of Kidney stones and give a good solution and I know It's medicine.

What is the reason of Kidney stones and give a good solution and I know It's medicine.
KIDNEY STONES- Kidney stone disease, also known as urolithiasis, is when a solid piece of material (kidney stone) occurs in the urinary tract KIDNEY STONE TYPES 1.Calcuim Oxalate -80% 2.Calcium phosphates -12% 3.Uric acid-5% 4.Struvite -2% 5.Cystine-1% CAUSES OF KIDNEY STONES Stones form due to a number of reasons but some of the main causes can be: Unhealthy Diet – for example processed, canned, frozen and fast foods that are high in salt content. Food that is high in Oxalates or Oxalic Acid Food that is not easily digestible or high in animal proteins like meat, fish and eggs. Over consumption of Alcohol and Beverages Allergies, hyperparathyroidism, chronic diarrhoea, inflammatory bowel disease or gout Low intake of water and fluids leading to dehydration or Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Severe physical exertion Uncontrolled Blood Pressure No exercise Weight Issues Mineral Imbalances in the body Family history of kidney stones Suppressing urges to urinate SYMPTOMS - Large Kidney stones usually give out very clear signs: Severe lower abdominal pain that radiates to your lower back, groin, sides and genitals. The pain can come and go in sudden and severe bouts lasting from 20 to 60 minutes and in some cases, for even longer. Usually it continues even after the stone has passed out. Blood in your urine – Bloody or abnormal colour of urine like pink, red or brown is a common occurrence. Cloudy and Foul smelling urine Uncontrollable urges to urinate – a persistent need to urinate frequently in small amounts along with a painful, burning sensation is commonly reported. Tenderness over the affected kidney. Nausea and/ or vomiting. Fever and chills. Extreme exhaustion and excessive sweating. HOW TO AVOID RECURRECE- If you’ve suffered from kidney stones once, you’ll agree that it is very important to make sure that you do not suffer from them again. Though there is no guarantee that they will not recur there are a number of things you can do to reduce the probability of them recurring. Here are some great ways to keep your kidneys healthy and to prevent the formation of kidney stones: At the cost of repeating ourselves, drink lots of water, stay hydrated, stay kidney stone free. The same goes for drinking healthy liquids. Avoid foods in high salt content Moderate exercise is advised however do not work out excessively and avoid saunas to prevent dehydration. Eat more fibrous fruits and vegetables. Here’s more information about How to Eat Right If You Have Kidney Stones. Avoid unhealthy foods like sugar, sugary drinks like sodas, energy drinks, processed food, alcohol, especially dark beers, black tea, chocolate based beverages and foods with high levels of oxalates. Studies have shown that foods high in calcium like dairy products may prevent stones. This is because they prevent the build up of oxalates in the body. It is important to note that the same does not apply to calcium supplements. Go slow on meats, fish, eggs and poultry which are likely to increase the amount of acid in urine. Foods high in magnesium prevent calcium from combining with oxalates and thus prevent stones from forming. Some foods like avocados, bananas, green leafy vegetables and pumpkin skins are very beneficial. Whole wheat bread and vegetable proteins like legumes, pulses and sprouted grains are a good alternative source of proteins, nutrients and fibres. They reduce the risk of forming kidney stones. No crash diets! Dieting is believed to increase the uric acid in the blood stream and thus increases the risk of kidney stones. A healthy balanced diet is the best way to stay healthy and prevent kidney stones. HOME REMEDIES 1.Plenty of water per day. 4 liters per day. 2.Lemon juice with water and olive oil. 3.Hoasre gram deccocction. 4.Apple cidar vinegar with oileve oil and lemon juice. AYURVEDIC REMEDIES 1.Gokharu Guggulu 2.Varunadi kashay 3.Pashanbheda churnawith yavakshara. 4.varunadi vati with gokharu kashay. Note -Treatment depend on the underline cause and types of kidney stone. I NEED your DETAILED HISTORY INVESTIGATIONS AND PREVIOUS MEDICATIONS DETAILS DETAILS REPORTS TO ASSESS URPROBLEMS.

I got preventive health checkup and my KFT shows Calcium 8.32. Is this too low. Should I worry for that? BUN is 10.4, Creatinine .74 and Uric Acid 4.71. Is low calcium a cause of concern?

I got preventive health checkup and my KFT shows Calcium 8.32. Is this too low. Should I worry for that? BUN is 10.4,...
You explain your problems and why the test was ordered to help you clearly. The corrected total serum calcium concentration is normally 8.5-10.2 mg/dL, but there is no sure means of predicting the serum calcium level, for either hypocalcemia or hypercalcemia, at which symptoms will occur. The normal BUN level for healthy individuals is 7-20 mg/dL in adults, and 5-18 mg/dL in children. Patients on dialysis have higher BUN levels, usually 40-60 mg/dL. The nephrologist (kidney doctor) and dietitian will help determine whether the BUN is in the correct range. Normal Uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dL (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dL (male). Normal values will vary from laboratory to laboratory. Also important to blood uric acid levels are purines. Normal levels of creatinine in the blood are approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams (mg) per deciliter (dL) in adult males and 0.5 to 1.1 milligrams per deciliter in adult females.
