My mother is having frequent urination for last few days. Urine comes in sufficient quantity every hour with foam and it cuts the skin around the areas wherever it gets spread. It creates too much itching and irritation in the skin. Kindly let me know how it could be cured at home without seeing a doctor. If not, who can treat it best. A urologist or a gynecologist? Thank you.
I have been experiencing a lot of pain while urinating for the past few days. Can you help me out with this?
More than frequent visits for urinating. An urge to piss at all times. Numbing and weird sensations in d virginal area. A little burning sensation while urinating.
What is creatinine serum test for? how does higher creatinine impact a person? how can we reduce or control higher creatinine?
Sir I am suffering from kidney disease my creatine is 2.2 but I am feeling very much weakness and feel sluggish. Not getting interest in working etc I am taking ayurveda as well as allopathic but no respnse?
I am a male. For the past 3 months morning I have blood in urine. But urine culture and routine is normal. I have seen 3 times intermittently waking up morning white discharge with no smell and itching. But I fear of gonorrhea? If I had caught gonorrhoea urine culture could have got it or not? Today instead of blood in urine I have cloudy urine. From 3 weeks I have nasal congestion not relieving also sound in ear while swallowing. When I get up brushing time sneezing slight secretions coming. Other wise only nasal congestion. What is the reason for all?
I have doubt regarding the color of my urin, since 2 days it is yellow in color, is there anything to worry or is it normal?
The presence of red blood cells in the urine is called hematuria. If there are sufficient red cells, the urine turns to a bright red, pink or cola shade. Frequently, the urine looks totally ordinary because there is insufficient blood to change the colour. In this situation, the condition is called 'microscopic' hematuria.
The most common causes of hematuria are given below:
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
- Kidney stones
- Tumours in the kidney or bladder
- Exercise: In this case, the blood is produced in the urine after strenuous activity. It is more commonly experienced by male patients.
- Injury: Traumatic damage to any part of the urinary tract, from the kidneys to the urethral opening, can cause hematuria.
The symptoms of hematuria vary depending upon the condition. These are as follows:
- Glomerulonephritis: If the glomerulonephritis is not serious, it may not show any signs. If the symptoms do show up, they can cause swelling, particularly in the lower furthest points(the thighs, legs, feet, and toes), decreased urine, and hypertension.
- Kidney or bladder infection: Symptoms rely on the site of the diseaseand can even cause extreme pain on one side of the lower back, fever, chills, nausea with vomiting, and pain in the bladder.
- Prostate infection: There can be pain in the lower back or in the region between the scrotum and rearend. Pain with discharge, blood in the semen, andfever and chills can also occuronce in a while.
- Tumour in the kidney or bladder: Most kidney and bladder problems develop without bringing about any pain or uneasiness. At the point when side effects build up, abdomen pain may be persistent.
- Kidney stones: When a kidney stone gets attached to the ureters, it can bring about extreme pain in the back, side or crotch, with nausea and difficulties in urination.
Based upon the suspected cause of hematuria, some of the treatments may include the following:
- Urine culture: In this test, a urine sample is extracted and examined to check whether bacteria has developed. This test is used to find a case of a kidney or bladder disease.
- Computed tomography (CT) of the kidneys, ureters and bladder: For most cases,a CT scan is conducted. This helps in viewing the internal organs and finding the areas that may have been affected by the condition. It also shows the extent of the damage and the spread of the disease so that a proper treatment plan may be laid out.
- Ultrasound: This test uses sound waves to create images that can show whether or not a kidney mass is a non cancerous. This method can also be used to find out whether or not there are any kidney stones, which may be causing hematuria.
- Cystoscopy: In this test, the specialist embeds an adaptable telescope into the urethra and passes it into the bladder to investigate the bladder lining for tumours or different issues.
