Hi, if you have not done recent abdominal scan pls do it and make confirm regarding size and number of stones and on that basis it's better I will suggest some medications even though follow below instructions at avoid kidney stones 1) never withhold the urination, whenever you have urge with few minutes you pass it 2) drink plenty of water and even buttermilk. 3) daily drink 100ml banana stem juice in empty stomach 4. Avoid eating most of the dry fruits like cashew, almond, pista etc 5. Avoid eating tomatoes, beetle leaf and beetle nut 6. Avoid eating oily, creamy, chat masala, puffs, cakes, 7) keep your health good so that you should never face dehydration due to loose stools, vomiting even that also leads stone formation.

Kidney Infection Symptoms In Hindi - किडनी इन्फेक्शन के लक्षण

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Lakhimpur Kheri
Kidney Infection Symptoms In Hindi - किडनी इन्फेक्शन के लक्षण

किडनी हमारे शरीर के महत्वपूर्ण अंगों में से एक है. ह्रदय द्वारा पम्प किए हुए रक्त का 20 प्रतिशत किडनी द्वारा साफ़ किया जाता है. फिर इसमें से निकले विषैले और अपशिष्ट पदार्थों को मूत्र के जरिए बाहर कर दिया जाता है. दुर्भाग्य से हमें किडनी में होने वाले इन्फेक्शन की जानकारी इसके पहले चरण में नहीं हो पाती है. कई बार तो ऐसा होता है कि जब तक हमें पता चलता है तब तक बहुत देर हो चुकी होती है. इसलिए हम आपको इसके कुछ लक्षण बताने जा रहे हैं ताकि इस समस्या से निजात पाई जा सके.

1. पेशाब में रक्त या प्रोटीन का आना
जब पेशाब में खून आने लगता है तब तो हमें आसानी से पता चल जाता है. लेकिन पेशाब के जरिए प्रोटीन के बाहर आने का पता लगाना ज़रा मुश्किल है. इसके लिए आपको लगातार निरिक्षण करते रहना होता है. दोनों ही स्थितियों में आपको तुरंत चिकित्सक के पास जाकर उन्हें पूरी बात बतानी चाहिए.
2. भूख का कम लगाना या वजन घटना
हमारे शरीर को लगातार काम करते रहने के लिए उचित पोषण और ऊर्जा की जरूरत होती है. जाहिर है ये ऊर्जा और पोषण हमें भोजन के जरिए ही मिलता है. लेकिन यदि भूख ही न लगे तो इसका एक कारण किडनी की कोई बिमारी भी हो सकती है. इसलिए जरुरी है कि किसी डॉक्टर को दिखाएँ.
3. उच्च रक्त चाप
उच्च रक्तचाप तो अपने आप में एक समस्या है. लेकिन कई बार इसका कारण किडनी में इन्फेक्शन भी हो सकता है. दरअसल होता ये है कि शरीर की क्षमता में कमी आने से हमारा ह्रदय तंत्रिका तंत्र के विभिन्न कार्यों को करने के लिए तेजी से रक्त पम्प करना शुरू कर देता है. ऐसे में जब दिल ज्यादा काम करता है तो उच्च रक्तचाप की समस्या हो जाती है.
4. त्वचा में रैशेज
जैसा कि हमने आपको बताया कि किडनी का काम भी खून से विषैले पदार्थों को बाहर निकालना है. लेकिन जब किडनी में संक्रमण हो जाता है तो अपशिष्ट पदार्थ बाहर नहीं आ पाते हैं. इसकी वजह से त्वचा पर चकत्ते और खुजली जैसी समस्या उत्पन्न हो जाती है.
5. थकान और सांस लेने में समस्या
शरीर से अपशिष्ट पदार्थों को बाहर निकालते समय किडनी इरिथरोपोटीन नामक हार्मोन का उत्पन करता है. ऑक्सीजन को लाल रक्त कोशिकाएं बनाने में इस हार्मोन की ही भूमिका होती है. इसलिए जब किडनी में कोई समस्या आती है तो इरिथरोपोटीन का उत्पादन प्रभावित होता है. इससे शरीर में ऑक्सीजन के वितरण के लिए जिम्मेदार लाल रक्त कोशिकाएं कम पड़ जाती हैं और सांस लेने में भी दिक्कत होने लगती है. इसके साथ ही हमारा दिमाग, मसल्स और पूरा शरीर जल्दी ही थक जाते हैं. इसे रक्ताल्पता भी कहते हैं.
6. जी मितलाना और चक्कर आना
किडनी के काम न करने पर शरीर में अपशिष्ट पदार्थों के अधिकता हो जाती है. जिसकी वजह से जी मितलाना और उल्टी जैसी परेशानियाँ भी उत्पन्न होने लगती हैं. इसके अलावा रक्ताल्पता की वजह से भी चक्कर आने या एकाग्र न कर पाने जैसी समस्याएं उत्पन्न हो सकती हैं.
7. मासपेशियों में ऐंठन
कई बार ऐसा भी हो सकता है कि किडनी में आने वाली परेशानियों की वजह से मांसपेशियों में गंभीर रूप से ऐंठन और दर्द उत्पन्न हो सकता है. ये दर्द शरीर के विभिन्न भागों में उत्पन्न हो सकता है.
8. बार-बार पेशाब आना
किडनी में संक्रमण के कई लक्षणों में से एक बार-बार पेशाब आना भी है. इसकी वजह से आपकी यूरीन की मात्रा और आवृत्ति में पबदलाव आ सकता है. खासतौर से रात में यूरीन में ज्‍यादा वृद्धि हो सकती है. इसमें आपको कम या ज्‍यादा मात्रा में यूरीन पीले रंग के साथ भी हो सकता है. ये भी हो सकता है कि पेशाब करने में समस्या आए और ये समस्या लगातार बनी रहे.
9. हाथ पैर या टखने का सूजन
किडनी इन्फेक्शन की पहचान का ये भी एक मुख्य लक्षण है. जब किडनी संक्रमित हो जाती है तो शरीर से विषैले तत्‍व बाहर नहीं निकल पाते हैं. इसलिए इससे कई तरह की समस्याएं आने लगती हैं. शरीर में इकठ्ठा होने वाले अतिरिक्त तरल पदार्थ हाथ, पैर, चेहरे और टखनों में सूजन का कारण बनते हैं.
10. टेस्ट
अंतिम और सबसे ज्यादा भरोसेमंद उपाय के रूप में आप इन लक्षणों के आधार पर टेस्ट करा सकते हैं. किडनी इन्फेक्शन में किडनी की कार्यक्षमता का अंदाजा लगाने के लिए क्रिएटिनिन के स्तर का पता लगाया जाता है. इसके लिए साधारण-सी जांच की जाती है. इसके अतिरिक्त पेशाब और स्‍क्रीनिंग के द्वारा भी किडनी के रोग की जांच होती है.

Dear lybrate user. Please don’t panic. You must understand ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. There is nothing called erectile dysfunction while having masturbation. Loosing erection in the initial stages of sex or not having erection at all or having late erection or lack of sexual desire are called erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. It can cause stress, relationship strain, and low self-confidence. The main symptom is a man's inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Patients suffering from erectile dysfunction should first be evaluated for any underlying physical and psychological conditions. If treatment of the underlying conditions doesn't help, medications and assistive devices, such as pumps, can be prescribed. Yoga, meditation and diet could be prescribed once we know the basic reasons for it. Two natural treatments for ED that have shown promise are red ginseng and pomegranate juice. Ginseng is thought to increase nitric oxide production, leading to improved blood flow. Pomegranate juice is a potent antioxidant and can help too. Watermelon could also help. Psychological reasons usually get cleared with sex therapy. I suggest online sex therapy. Take care.

Hello... BK virus can cause renal dysfunction in post transplant patients. However, from your biopsy finding it is not very clear whther those findings are due to the virus or the Immunosuppressant medications which you are taking. The best approach would be to taper your immunosuppressant medications and regularly monitor the bk virus level to see for response

Kidney Stones - 5 Ways To Treat It!

Kidney Stones - 5 Ways To Treat It!

Kidney stones are also known as renal calculi and can be found not only in the kidneys but anywhere in the urinary tract such as the ureters, urinary bladder and the urethra. Kidney stones are solid masses of crystals or minerals and salts. These crystals can vary according to size and even shape. The stones are formed when the waste salts and minerals in the urine accumulate and form a solid mass. They get stuck in the urinary tract and result in a very painful condition. Kidney stones normally do not create too much problem unless they get blocked in the passage of urine. Treatment options depend upon the size of the stone. Small calculi pass easily through urine by consuming plenty of water. Larger stones require treatment; whether it is only medication or surgery depends on the severity of the condition.

Following are 5 ways to treat kidney stones:

  1. Medication: Medication is used to relieve pain and also help in easy passage of the stones. Medication using alpha adrenergic blockers and calcium channel blockers are normally prescribed as they provide faster clearance rates for the stones. But medication is effective only for stones that have diameters ranging from 4mm to 10mm. Medication using anti-emetic drugs is useful against nausea caused due to kidney stones.
  2. Open surgery: Kidney stone removal by open surgery is not very common and is recommended only when the stone is very large or there is any abnormality in anatomy. By open surgery the stone is removed from the ureter or the kidney, wherever it gets stuck.
  3. Ureteroscopy: Ureteroscopy is done to remove stones stuck in the ureter. In this procedure, a thin tube is passed from the urethra into the urinary bladder and then into the ureter near the stone which is stuck. The stone is removed either using a laser energy or by another instrument. The procedure is done while the patient is under general anaesthesia. Sometimes a temporary plastic tube may be inserted into the ureter to drain out the stone fragments (as done by laser energy) into the bladder.
  4. Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL): PCNL is a procedure wherein larger stones are plucked out from anywhere in the kidney where they are stuck with the help of an instrument called nephroscope. The larger sized stones are first broken down using pneumatic or laser energy and then pulled out using the telescopic instrument.
  5. Home remedies: The first step towards naturally flushing out small stones from the kidneys is drinking plenty of water. At least 10-12 glasses of water must be consumed every day to flush out the stones. Other natural remedies for flushing stones out of the system are lemon juice squeezed in water, basil juice mixed in tea, apple cider vinegar stirred in water, pomegranate juice, kidney bean broth etc.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

At your age and with the medical conditions you have, you should be happy with the erections you have, harmonal therapy in your case is contraindicated as you already have a prostatic problem. Your prostatic condition may worsen with harmonal treatment. My suggestion is that you have to accept aging gracefully and try to adopt to the natural changes that a person of your age faces. If you are not satisfied with my answer please visit a urologist for further advice.

I have stone in ureter tube and it blocked upper area and kidney also. What should I do?

I have stone in ureter tube and it blocked upper area and kidney also. What should I do?
Take plenty of liquids daily. Stone in the ureter can be managed with medications provided it is small sized and mild symptoms. If youre suffering with high grade fever and/or excessive pain then it is better to undergo operation (URSL). Or if the stone is blocking the kidney for prolonged duration then also surgery is indicated.
