This is due infection after playing in sand because sand has many bacteria which can cause skin infection. You can add little detol in bucket during bathing to reduce infection. Consult a doctor for internal cure.

Why Renal Biopsy Is Performed?

DM - Nephrology, MD-Medicine, MBBS
Nephrologist, Delhi
Why Renal Biopsy Is Performed?

Kidneys play an important metabolic role and are essential for balancing salt, minerals and water in the body. They also play a significant role in removing waste products from the body. They make urine, which contains all the waste materials that are eliminated from the body. They also play an important role in blood pressure regulation and in maintaining the balance of various minerals in the body. Any suspected kidney damage should be confirmed by a kidney biopsy, which will reveal the exact disease, thereby directing towards the appropriate treatment. 

Why and when is it done? 

A renal or kidney biopsy is done in the following situations: 

  1. When there is abnormal protein in the blood or urine, which is indicative of a kidney disease, and the exact cause needs to be found out
  2. When kidney failure is suggested by blood tests but cause is not clear 
  3. To find the cause of bleeding in the urine (haematuria) 
  4. To identify and/or confirm diagnosis after a CT scan or ultrasound 
  5. To check how well a transplanted kidney has been received 

Know about the procedure 

A renal biopsy is mostly done as an outpatient procedure and is a type of biopsy known as percutaneous biopsy (biopsy where a needle is inserted through the skin into the renal tissue). Very rarely, it may be combined with the CT scan or ultrasound and be done in the radiology department. This may be done on inpatients. The patient is made to lie on his/her back and a local anesthetic is used on the area of the injection. A thin, long needle is directed towards the area of the kidney from where some kidney tissue is removed for sampling.

In some cases, the direction of the needle may be decided by a CT scan or ultrasound. While this is a closed biopsy procedure, in some cases, as a part of the surgery, open biopsies may also be obtained, where a sample of tissue is extracted for analysis. 

Recovering from a biopsy 
The person would need some time to recover from the procedure, as there would be some discomfort at the site of a needle insertion. Vital signs would be monitored for the next couple of hours during which the person would also be monitored for internal bleeding. A pain reliever can be used if required. Haematuria or blood-tinged urine can be seen disappearing within the next 12 hours. Very rarely the bleeding can be severe and require angiography and further procedures. The person should also avoid strenuous activities for the next few days. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a nephrologist.

Dear Lybrate user. Phimosis is a congenital narrowing of the opening of the foreskin so that it cannot be retracted. Phimosis is a very common problem. In most of the cases you can clear the problem yourself. Phimosis could cause moderate to severe pain while having vaginal intercourse. Apply oil on your foreskin and on the glans. Move the foreskin forward and back slowly without hurting you much. Because the oil is lubricant, it will be easier than without oil. Do this forward and back movement 20 times several times in a day. Repeat the same every day for around one month. You will get the elasticity and you will be able to retract the foreskin completely. In case if there is no result from the above massage, you can always go for a minor surgical procedure called circumcision. Take care.

Hello sir/mam I have a problem with nightfall. It occurs 2-3 times in a month. Is it have any side effect ?
This fluid coming out is semen. Semen, also known as seminal fluid, is an organic fluid that contains sperms. It is secreted by the sexual glands. Semen coming out at night is also called night fall or nocturnal emission or wet dreams. Do not be tensed about this issue. It is normal at your age. It is not an illness but a natural phenomenon by which old sperms come out and make space for new sperms. New sperms are produced continuously in our body by pushing away the older ones. It does not cause any physical harm or weakness.

It's really important to track all your activities. It can be challenging, but you won't realize how effective it is unless you give it a try. The information about trends in your activities will help you get motivated and achieve your goals: 1. Organize you activity list. Write down (or type it if you use a software on PC or smartphone) all your daily routine. 2. Record events for each activity. For example you have an activity titled 'Chocolate bars'. Each time you eat a bar, you add an event. 3. Watch your progress and trends, draw conclusions, stay motivated There is a plenty of ways to keep track of stats. You can use sheets on your fridge, you can use notebooks, PC or Mac software or apps for smartphone, like iKeepStats for instance.

I am 65 years old. I go for approx. 3.5--4 km (in One Hour) Walking daily in morning. In evening, I go to Gym and do work out--- 11mts on Trade mill, 12 Mts. On Cross Walk and approx 10 mts Cycling. I attain a Heart Rate of approx 120 in each case while burning approx. 200 cals put together. All 3, I do in a span of approx. 1 hr. With rest in between and bring back Heart Rate to approx 75-80 before starting the next Work out.In between also do hand Push Ups on Gym M/cs. Please let me know --1. This much of Daily Routine ,is OK at my age of 65 (+)?2. Work out at Gym with Heart Rate going upto 120 is ok while walking on Trade Mill with Speed of 5 KMPH? 3. Again is it ok to go upto 120 Heart Rate while using Cross Walk Mill for burning Calories?

General Physician, Bangalore
Hi sir I really appreciate your efforts in working out but I recommend minimal to moderate physical activity for your age group people. So please take a gap of 5 to 10 mins between each step/ stage of your work out, so that your work out time will be increased to 2 hrs r 1: 30 hr.You did not mention about any cardiac issues you are suffering from hope you don't have any. But I would recommend you to not strain yourself too much in such a way that your heart rate will suddenly go up till 120beats/ min. I would only recommend a good walk a hour in morning and eveening .That would be more than enough instead of heavy work out.

Hi Managing diabetes with insulin needs some education regarding how to adjust the insulin dose, about the type of insulin your taking, how to manage when the blood sugars are low or high and diet as well. You need a consultation to discuss the same. As of now it looks like her insulin dose is high. Please do not stop the insulin as the blood sugars are settling and if stopped can shoot up the blood sugars. The dose has to be adjusted gradually and may be stopped if she has repeated low blood sugars.

Peyronie's Disease: About Bent Penis

Peyronie's Disease: About Bent Penis

Peyronie's disease is a problem predominantly found in 3-9% of adult men, especially after 40 years of age. In the disease, a scar tissue is formed in the outer layer of the penis called Tunica Albuginea. Scar tissue is a just plaque inside the penis.

Peyronie's disease causes the penis to bend sideways or upwards and can make sex become difficult due to deformity and erection may be a painful process. It is usually associated with erectile dysfunctions, severe anxiety and reduced testosterone levels. It is worth noting that there are treatments for Peyronie's disease, however, the pain often goes away on its own, generally, in 6-18 months of onset, but the deformity stays.

Here is everything you need to know about this disease:

Causes
It is not known exactly what causes Peyronie's disease, however, there are some factors, which make it more likely than others. Here are those factors:

  1. Trauma: This is the most common factor which causes Peyronie's disease. It is believed that when someone suffers from tiny bleeding of the penis, which is very common in patients of Diabetes, the plaque starts to build up. The injury or trauma, which causes the bleeding may go unnoticed as well.
  2. Genes: Genes are also a possible cause of Peyronie's disease.

Symptoms
The symptoms of Peyronie's disease vary, such as:

  1. Pain on Erection: There is usually pain in erection during the initial phase.
  2. Bent penis: When the penis becomes hard before sex, it may bend downwards or sideways by more than 15 degree, so the vaginal entry becomes impossible or is painful for the partner.
  3. Scars: Tissue may form on other parts of the body, as well including the hand and feet. In fact, it has been said that men who have scarring in the hand, which affect the fingers are more likely to contract the disease as well.

One may see extensive scarring in hands in a disease called Dupuytren's Contracture. 

Treatment

  1. Wait & Watch: It is worth noting the acute phase with pain is treated by wait and watch, controlling contributory factors like diabetes, low testosterone and psychogenic factors. Antioxidants are useful. Large number of cases are relieved of the pain in 1 to 1.5 years.
  2. Intralesional injection: If the bend is significant enough to interfere in sexual functioning, It can be treated by injecting medicines in the plaque. The medicine, Xiaflex is currently not available in India and other medicines given are not very effective.
  3. Surgery: This is a last option when Peyronie's disease has not gone on it's own and medicines are not helping either. The two most common procedures performed are removing the plaque and putting a tissue graft in its place and also removing the tissue opposite the plaque to counter the bending effect. The results are fairly good.

Going for a Penile implant is the last option, which is a permanent solution and is commonly done in India. And, the success rate for Penile implant is also very high.

My wife is suffering from ITP Immune thrombocytopenia .please tell me for best treatment.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
My wife is suffering from ITP Immune thrombocytopenia  .please tell me for best treatment.
In ITP, the body's immune system, for unknown reasons, destroys healthy blood platelets. It also impairs the body's ability to produce platelets. Slowing the destruction of platelets is one approach to ITP treatment. Most treatments for ITP interfere with the immune system to help reduce platelet destruction. Some of these treatments are FDA approved for ITP and some are not. Many of these treatments are immunosuppressants. Corticosteroids: Often the first treatment a patient receives, corticosteroids raise platelet counts by slowing the immune system's ability to clear platelets from the bloodstream. 5 In fact, a positive response to corticosteroids can be used to confirm the diagnosis of ITP. A panel of ITP experts recently suggested that patients should only be on corticosteroids for 4 weeks as patients often experience complications because of their corticosteroids medicines over time. 4 Anti-D and IVIG: These blood products include antibodies that are made from human plasma. They slow the clearance of platelets from the bloodstream tend to be used when platelet counts are dangerously low, and have an effect that is usually temporary. Anti-CD20: Treatment with antibodies that bind to the CD20 antigen on malignant human B cells marks these cells for destruction by the immune system. Several other medications are used to treat ITP, including other immunosuppressants, hormone therapies, chemotherapeutics, and biologics. Medical treatments that increase platelet production In recent years, it has become clearer that there is an additional process involved in ITP: The body doesn’t produce enough platelets to make up for the healthy platelets that are destroyed. An alternative approach works to increase platelet production supporting a normal process in the body. Platelet boosters. These are medicines that do not work on the immune system, but instead imitate thrombopoietin, or TPO. TPO is the protein that tells special cells in the bone marrow called megakaryocytes to produce platelets. By doing this, platelet boosters help increase platelet production. Hope this helps.
