I think grade 5 reflux is a indication for surgery especially when infection is there. You should consult a paediatric surgeon or a paediatric urologist.

Beer acts as a diuretic and increases your urine which helps stone removal. But that does not mean u start drinking beer....rather drink a lot of water and keep well hydrated.

Hi, prevention of kidney stones may include a combination of lifestyle changes and medications. Lifestyle changes you may reduce your risk of kidney stones if you: drink water throughout the day. For people with a history of kidney stones, drink 12-14 glasses of water everyday. If you live in a hot, dry climate or you exercise frequently, you may need to drink even more water to produce enough urine. If your urine is light and clear, you're likely drinking enough water. 1 eat fewer oxalate-rich foods. If you tend to form calcium oxalate stones, restrict foods rich in oxalates. These include rhubarb, beets, bhindi (okra), spinach, swiss chard, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate and soy products. Choose a diet low in salt and animal protein. Reduce the amount of salt you eat and choose non animal protein sources, such as legumes. Consider using a salt substitute. Continue eating calcium-rich foods, but use caution with calcium supplements. Calcium in food doesn't have an effect on your risk of kidney stones. Continue eating calcium-rich foods unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ask your doctor before taking calcium supplements, as these have been linked to increased risk of kidney stones. You may reduce the risk by taking supplements with meals. Diets low in calcium can increase kidney stone formation in some people. W medication: take homoeopathic medicine for kidney-stone less then 7mm - berberis vulgaris q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Revert.

Dear user you need a continued medicine for prolonged period of time along with strict dietary management for desired effect. Also note there will always be some fluctuations in parameters of blood biochemistry due to renal insufficency. At present you can at the most use Rhus tox 30 once daily. Rest protocal can be designed after thorough review of your reports n bp.

Nefroti syndrome ie leakage of albumin protein in urine, my 8 years old grand son is suffering from this type of health problem, guide me how to handle him.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS, FISPN & FISPN - Pediatric Nephrology
Pediatrician, Delhi
Nephrotic syndrome is a common problem which has a relapsing and remitting course. First I would like to ask a few questions before jumping on to conclusions. At what age this problem started? what are the medications is he on? is he ever gone into remission? I would advise you to maintain a nephrotic diary which records daily urinary protein and medications so that I get a fair idea what`s going on.

Yes, you are right. Artificial protein supplements can be harmful and are not required, if you eat properly. Natural proteins like paneer /pulses/soyabean/nuts or egg whites /fish /lean chicken (non veg).

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Please clarify what do you mean by "My kidney has started to attack due to diabetes. Diabetic also in control. Please understand when diabetes is present for a number of years whether well controlled or not, it does affect the kidneys. There is no special medication for that. Best is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with fasting < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg and HbA1c%<7. Plus if you have high BP then taking ACE - Inhibitors or ARBs is helpful. Thanks.

May be you have stones in bladder or urethra. This may cause rupture and blood. Homoeopathy has good treatment for your problem, without causing adverse effects. Take homoeopathic medicine arnica 200 daily in the morning and in the evening and give feedback after 6 days.
