How to maintain the stones in the kidney. Generally all men's have stones but how to save yourself from unusual pain?

Although kidney stones are a common problem but rather than to eat painkillers during pain why not you give more emphasis tosuch diet which will help in less or no formation of kidney stones---------------below given is the diet which will help you to get rid of recurrent kidney stone problems-------------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 am suffering from urine infection since 15 days may be because of using common washroom at office. Because of it there is pain in lower abdomen. I took medicines for it and my pain become fine .but as my dosage of medicines have been completed, it again started to pain. Doctor again gave me medicines for 5 days. Would you please tell me how long will the infection take to be removed completely? And what precautions should I take to avoid this problem in future?

The first thing is that common office toilet is less likely a cause for urinary infection. Its common in female. Even more if sexually active. Even more if maintaining poor hygiene. Urine infection depends on grade of antibiotic therapy and its effectiveness. Best way is to drink plenty of water (likely 3-4 litres/day) and take precautions for its flare ups. Infection can be of multiple types and therapy worries accordingly. Best way to go for urine examination at the end of therapy.

You might be having urinary tract infection. Burning sensation can also be due to dehydration. If you have been drinking water normally then it is likely to be UTI. Get urine analysis, total count, serum creatinine and serum electrolytes done and consult. Or you can go to a nephrologist or any general physician.

Dear lybrate-user, hi Welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* Definitely stone of left kidney can give pain on the right side. Mechanism for that pain is - extra burden on the part of the right kidney when left kidney is compromised with hydronephrosis to filter as perfect to the normal stage. Hope this will clear your query. Regards.

Dear, as you said all reports are normal. One very common cause we have to consider and that is anal fissure due to constipation with passage of hard faeces wich would give same trouble. To confirm try to put greased finger in side anus. If it is tight and painful to introduce in anus then you have for sure fissure then concentrate on treatting constipation which is not a disease but lifestyle problem and adjust your lifestyle accordingly. I have given some useful suggestion and treatment in detail several times in this section so kindly read them and fokkow them. Dr. Kiran mehta.

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.

At the age of 38 prostate does not seem to be the cause. It is more likely to be in the urethra where the internal mucosa might have been inflammed due to infection or some trauma. Was there any suggestion of urinary stone in the past. A small stone might have passed out in the stream 20 days back leaving the urinary tract abraded which is causing this pain. This can be demonstrated by a cystoscopic examination but not advisable at present. There must be some urinary antibacterial and antispasmodic drug prescribed by aiims doctor. If yes continue for some days or you may siscuss further on lybrate asking a private question.

I am suffering from borderline hepatomegaly, kidney stone and I feel very much pain in my left upper abdomen.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I am suffering from borderline hepatomegaly, kidney stone and I feel very much pain in my left upper abdomen.
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 if the size of the stone is more than 3mm then you should surely go for surgery. For your hepatomegaly take homoeopathic liver tonic liv-t (sbl company). Take 20 ml of the liver tonic, thrice daily, after meals.
