I have got a small calculus in my right Kidney about 3.5 cms. Can I ignore it or should I take medication?

I have got a small calculus in my right Kidney about 3.5 cms. Can I ignore it or should I take medication?
If you ignore it will become much more bigger. Immediately consult a health expert. Dietary modifications does play an important role to rectify renal stones... About 80% of all kidney stones are composed of calcium and other minerals, usually a combination of calcium and oxalate. In some cases dietary adjustments help to prevent the recurrence of these types of stones. Increase fluid intake: This is the most important preventive measure for all patients who develop kidney stones. It hinders the formation of stones by diluting the urine. The biggest portion of calcium in the diet comes from milk and foods made from large amounts of milk, such as cheeses and yogurt, dark greeny vegetables. Too much may cause calcium stones. Sugar, sodium, and animal protein: It has been found that too much of these may also aggravate the development of calcium or calcium oxalate stones. A diet high in animal protein affects certain minerals in the urine that may promote the formation of kidney stones. Insoluble fiber also speeds up movement of substances through the intestine, so there will be less time for calcium to be absorbed. When vitamin C is used by the body, oxalate is produced. Take personalised expert dietary advice. Thanku.

Dear, it is occurring due to small size of kidney stone. First, the supply for kidney and stomach is the same so the pain in kidney is also felt in stomach, second, the smaller the stone the more it will disturb you. Small stones can be passed in tubes and movement of it causes pain but when is is big in size it stuck in tubes and it can not move. Drink plenty of water and take homeopathic treatment for removal of stone and to stop recurrency.

Am 76 year. Have to go for urination 2 to 3 times in the night. Of course I drink 2 to 3 glasses of water before going to bed. I take 4 to 5 glasses of water during day time. Should I reduce the quantity of water? Every morning first thing I take Green tea with 2 table spoon of honey, one lemon juice and half tea spoon turmeric powder. I do't have any other ailment except hypertension for which I take regularly doctor's prescribed medicine. Thanking you in advance for your valued advice.

Hello sir. Sorry regarding your problem but I strongly advice you to go for ultrasonography of your pelvis done to see for prostate gland. Becoz enlargement of prostate (benign hpertrophy of prostate) is common in old age and it might lead to increased frequency of urine in night (nocturia). If your report comes out to be normal then you might try with reducing content of drinking water at night. Take care.

I have a 5.8mm stone in my ureter. Do medicines can cure this or operation is needed?

I have a 5.8mm stone in my ureter. Do medicines can cure this or operation is needed?
As you said stone is not in kidney and in the ureter, then it may causes severe pain and retention of urine and can cause kidney damage. If you feel very severe pain then follow the best tips I suggest you: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones. 8. You can also take neeri syrup 1-2 table spoon with a glass of water at least for 1 month.

Hello! your symptoms are suggestive of urinary infection (UTI). UTI is common in pregnancy. Drink lots of water and get your urine routine and culture done. You might need antibiotic after the urine reports, so consult a gynaecologist for that.

Anti-diabetic drugs cannot be prescribed on the basis of your blood sugar only. You need a complete evaluation of your cardiac & renal status as well as eye checkup. Diabetic with stones r prone TO UTI & other complications. So better to consult an Urologist nearby in person with all relevant investigations.

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. Medication: can take homoeopathic medicine if the size of the stones is smaller - berberis vulgaris q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Revert.

The damaged kidney is not routinely removed. However, if it has got infection, tumour, obstruction, large stones, or if it is creating problems like protein loss, occupying a lot of space, causing hypertension etc then it is removed. The transplanted kidney is usually placed in right or left lower abdomen.

I am 31 years old from Bangalore and suffering from pain and burning sensation after urination. There are no other symptoms or problems. It all started mildly on 25th Jun. Pain or burning sensation was sporadic and mostly I suffered at the early mornings. Then it used to be normal most of the times the whole day. I did all known home remedies like drinking more water, barley water, lot of butter milk etc… But the occasional pain or burning sensation was prolonging. So I consulted a general physician on 27th Jun and based on my explanation, he assumed it as UTI and prescribed me – Citralka syrup, Delbi-O tablet, Nicip-Plus tablet. I started consuming these for 2 days, but all of the sudden it got worsen and started to pain and burn almost continuously. It used to be severe, right after urinating and used to slightly reduce then. To mention, just before the pain got worsen, I travelled from Bangalore to Chennai in train. It was a horrible experience where I urinated more than 10 times that night and hardly slept for some 20 minutes. Then in Chennai, I consulted another doctor on 29th Jun (he is a general physician cum diabetologist). He diagnosed my urine sample (for Sugar, Albumin and Deposits) and the results are – Sugar and Albumin – Not detected Microscopic – Few Epithelial Cells are found. He informed me that the antibiotic prescribed by the previous doctor was not working and then prescribed me – Baloforce 100 mg, Urispas, Citralka, Amikacin 2 ml injection. With consumption of these for 3 days, the pain and burning sensation have gradually reduced. But still I have occasional pain/burning sensation, particularly during early mornings. In short, it all went back to my initial stage. Please note that the doctor asked me to continue the medicines for next 10 days. Lastly I reported to him on 1st Jul and still consuming the medicines. I am back to Bangalore now (4th Jul) and still I feel a bit uncomfortable but the pain and burning sensation are bearable. Please advise me should I consult an urologist at this point or shall continue the medicines and observe for improvement? Should I complete the full course? He asked me to take till 11th Jul – Is it needed? It is more than a week of time. Whether Urinary Tract Infection used to prolong so long? Please help me.

Drinking so much milk will not affect you in anyway as long as you drink a lot of water. Only problem is that milk has been found to be a causative agent for diabetes. So if you have a family history of diabetes then try to reduce the quantity and be on the safer side. Also milk has high fat content. As long as you exercise a lot and burn up the fat it will not be a problem but if you have a sedentary lifestyle then it may cause cardiac problems. Other than that no problem. The kidney stone even if it forms will be washed out out of the system as long as you drink a lot of water and pass adequate amount of water.
