Sir I would advice you to go for thorough investigation related to your kidney. As you have mentioned 6litre water intake and output only. 5litres. Suggest kidney issues. - blood test, renal profile, cbc, esr, c reactive protein, urine routine, 24 hour creatinine clearance, liver panel - sonography abdo and pelvis. First b4 drawing to conlusion. Investigation matters. Pls do it as soon as possible.

Overactive Bladder - Know Everything About It!

MBBS MS DNB MNAMS NYAMS
Urologist, Mohali
Overactive Bladder - Know Everything About It!

A problem pertaining to the storage function of the bladder that results in bouts of sudden, often uncontrollable urge to urinate is referred to as an overactive bladder. This condition which is marked by unconditioned or involuntary loss of urine can sometimes be quite difficult to stop. People who experience such a condition often feel humiliated and as such tend to limit their social and work life. Despite such, only a few are conscious that a brief evaluation can help them manage and overcome an overactive bladder.

Mechanism of Urination

During urination, the urine proceeds from the bladder and flows into the urethra which is located at the tip of the penis in men and above the vagina in women. As the bladder fills, the nerve signals in the brain prompts urination by coordinating the relaxation and contraction of the urinary sphincter muscles.

Causes and Symptoms of an Overactive Bladder

Primarily caused due to involuntary contraction and relaxation of sphincter muscles, several conditions can lead to overactive bladder. 

Some of them are: 
1. Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders
2. Poor kidney function due to diabetes
3. Medications that lead to increased production of urine
4. Bladder abnormalities like tumors or stones
5. Constipation
6. Excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol

Some of the common signs of an overactive bladder are:
1. Bouts of sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate
2. Awakening at night frequently to urinate
3. Urinating more than eight times a day

Risks
The risk of an overactive bladder gradually increases with age. Conditions, such as diabetes and an enlarged prostate results in the increased likelihood of an overactive bladder. People who have previously faced strokes and heart attacks experience cognitive decline, which often times lead to the development of an overactive bladder.

Urinary incontinence as well as a host of associated factors can be detrimental to your life. Emotional distress, interrupted sleep cycles and depression are some of the observed complications of this condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

A proper diet is essential in keeping the kidney healthy and prevent formation of kidney stones. Drinking plenty of water and other fluids or liquids daily will help prevent most types of kidney stones. Consuming too much of calcium rich foods such as spinach, beet, cauliflower, carrots, almonds, sweet breads, coconut, turnip, bengal gram, peas, whole-wheat flour and organ meats like liver and kidney can lead to kidney stones. One should also know to choose a diet that is low in salt and animal proteins. Keep away from condiments such as pickle, alcohol drinks, sauce, cucumber, radish, tomato, asparagus, onion, cabbage, meat and gravies as well as carbonated drinks.

After a CT scan, I am diagnosed of having a growth (Shavannoma) behind the lungs, just above the kidney. I want to avoid operation. Is there any treatment in Homeopathy for shrinking this growth?

MBBS
Nephrologist, Kolkata
It wont wise if you go for any other medicinal treatment in case of schwannoma operation in gud hands is the best treatment which can gift you a complete cure. If the mass is too large they will go for preoperative radiation to shrink its size then operate. So please do not panic nd go for the operation I admit there are risks but the chances of complete cure is much higher. I would hav advised the same for anyone close to me or my family. Thanks take care.

There are two types of stones: o Uric acid stones o Calcium stones (90% of the stones) Urine turns brown or red in colour due to presence of blood ? Uncontrollable urge to urinate ? Nausea ? Vomiting ? As stones grow, they cause unbearable pain ? Crystallisation of chemicals and minerals present in urine leads to kidney stones Natural home remedy using kidney beans: 1. Take 60 gm kidney beans 2. Add 4 L of water 3. Heat for 4-5 hr 4. Strain the liquid through a fine muslin cloth 5. Allow the liquid to cool 6. Drink 1 glass of this liquid once every 2 hr in a day 7. Do this for a week 8. Do not use the liquid or the beans again 24 hr after the 1st preparation Tips: ? Drink a glass of apple juice every day

First to find out the right cause like - cystitis, urinary tract infections, fibroids /pelvic masses/constipation etc etc. Their is not as such home remedies for this problem, you have to take a proper homeopathic treatment for this, few tips - often mild degrees of difficulty can be managed with simple advice. When sitting on the toilet, make sure that your legs are apart rather than having your knees together. Leaning forwards or even standing slightly may alter the angle of the bladder neck enough to allow better emptying. Waiting for two minutes after the initial void and trying again may help. This is known as the double void technique. 2) more severe symptoms may require actual treatment. There are three approaches to the treatment of voiding difficulties: try to increase the force of the bladder contractions. This can be achieved in some cases using bethanechol, which stimulates the nerve fibres controlling the contraction of the bladder muscle. This may be effective if there are no signs of obstruction at the bladder neck or urethra. Try to reduce outflow obstruction. This method would be used if there was a specific site of obstruction in the urethra such as a stricture, or narrowing, demonstrated during investigation as mentioned above. Third, and probably most commonly, catheters are used. They can either be used occasionally or remain in place long term. 3) occasional self-catheterisation when properly taught in a healthy individual with normal dexterity is the best option. It gives freedom to control bladder symptoms with no more inconvenience than having to change a tampon. But I suggest, you do all these things in the supervision of certified medical person. Homeopathic medicine for temporary relief - equisetum hyemale 30 three times a day, can notharis 30 - three times a day, then let me know after 4-5 days.

This is called honeymoon pyelitis. It's common after sexual intercourse in some ladies. It's mostly seen in ladies who have sex for first time. The burning sensation while passing urine will go byitself without any treatment after 3 or 4 days. But if the symptoms persisting more than a week, then take the following homoeopathic medicines for just 3 days and revert back. 1. Staphysagria 200 4 pills morning and night 2. Can notharis 30 4 pills 3 times while taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks. Drink plenty of water, minimum 3 to 4 litres per day. Don't hold the urine because of fear of pain. Must pass immediately pass urine if urge comes.

This could be more of a mind set though drinking water/ liquids can increase your urine output it can show its effects at various timings I don't think you have any abnormal symptom it is very common so relax and take off your mind from this problem it is definitely not a disease.
