Mild hydronephrosis in the left kidney due to left ureteric calculus. What to do?

Mild hydronephrosis in the left kidney due to left ureteric calculus. What to do?
Dear lybrate-user. You will need evaluation to find out the nature of stone along with status of kidneys. If it is a small stone it is likely to pass out on its own with some medical help. If it is large or obstructive then a surgical removal might be required.

The reports are almost normal and not suggestive of any specific disease. I coukd be more helpful if you would have stated more details like since when, other associated symptoms, frequency and quantity of urine etc. Still you may try taking homoeopathic medicine Kali Carb 200 3 doses, 1 every day for 3 days. Report after 1 week.

I am 42 years old and for the past two year I noticed there is a pungent smell in my urine. I had done blood test and urine routine checkup but can't find any problem except my spgt value of blood is 72 (max limit 70 unite). I used to take alcohol 3 peg - twice a week. Please let me know your opinion about the probable reason?

FIMSA, MD-Nephrology, DM - Nephrology, Critical Care Medicine, MBBS

The smell is due to concentarated urine. Increase water intake to about 3litres daily. Stop consuming alcohol, tobacco, paan masala, excessive coffee/tea.

How much time it take to remove Foley catheter after urethra surgery for urethral stricture?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Nephrologist, Noida
Hello lybrate-user It depends upon the patient age, surgery complications and other factors. Mainly catheter is removed from 7-10 days, but sometimes it can prolong to 1 month if urologist think it's needed.

Sir I have two stone in my right kidney of 5mm each. Can is passed it by the help of medicine.
Hi dear, welcome to lybrate. Stones remedy ------------it can be excreted with medicine, but ordinary medicines do not work 100%-- only -some 10-15 %, so better you use -following pathrihar course -------------------------------------------------- you should take care of diet. Do not take non veg and fried foods. -add plenty of fresh clean and healthy water -add sufficient vegetables/ fruits to daily diet. -avoid, if any ----------------------------------- - best way at present is -u purchase from some tibetan vaid expert in your area -- tibetan pathrihar course- -a tibetan remedy--1-months for complete cure- and get rid off stones in a short period- if you want to avoid surgery/ lithotripsy etc. At later stage. 100%- results/ cure- a little costly. ----------------------------- for the time being, you can start with;- tab cystone-1-1 with hot kulthi dal water-- 7 days.

HI, It may be due to drinking excess water before going to bed or urinary infection or very rarely juvenile diabetes if there is a positive history of diabetes in the family. Do a routine urine examination and revert back with the reports.

Urinary Tract Infection - Reasons behind It

M.Ch - Urology, MS, MBBS

Urinary Tract Infection - Reasons behind It

Urinary Tract Infections are a group of diseases that affect one’s urinary system such as the urethra, bladder, ureters or kidneys. Women are more prone to contracting UTIs than men. They may be accompanied by symptoms such as a constant urge to urinate frequently along with a burning sensation in the concerned parts and pelvic pain. The urine may have traces of blood in it. These infections are usually treated with antibiotics.

Causes behind Urinary Tract Infection:

Urinary Tract infection generally occurs when the bacteria enter the urinary tract via the urethra and begin to proliferate in the bladder. Although the urinary system is structured to ward off such invaders, at times, the defense mechanism fails. In that case, the bacteria may evolve into a full-blown infection in the urinary tract.

Few risk factors are:

  1. Female anatomy: A woman’s urethra is shorter as compared to a man’s, thus lessening the distance the bacteria need to travel to the bladder. This increases the chances of UTIs in women.

  2. Using diaphragms and spermicidal agents for birth controls

  3. A dip in the levels of estrogen post menopause

  4. Abnormalities in the urinary tract that hinder the discharge of urine or cause the urine to travel back into the urethra.

  5. Enlarged prostate or kidney stones that cause the urine to be trapped in the bladder.

  6. An impaired immune system because of diabetes and other ailments

  7. Using catheters (tube) to urinate is one of the common risk factors because of the chances of infections. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an urologist.

UTI During Pregnancy - 4 Tips To Avoid It

UTI During Pregnancy - 4 Tips To Avoid It

Urinary tract infection (UTI) is usually caused by inflammation or bacteria in the urinary tract. Pregnant mothers are most susceptible to this infection, especially after the sixth week and before the twenty fourth week of pregnancy. This usually happens due to the alterations that take place in the urinary tract during pregnancy.

Also, a growing uterus can block the urine drainage from this part of the body, leading to the accumulation of bacteria which causes infection. The symptoms are uncomfortable and even painful. These include pain and burning sensation, frequent urination, fever and chills. So how can you prevent UTI during pregnancy? we have a few tips for you!

  1. Hydration: The best thing you can do to both prevent and treat a urinary tract infection is to start drinking at least six to eight glasses of water in a day. Another good way to prevent and treat UTIs is with the help of cranberry juice which has powerful antioxidants that flush toxins out of your system effectively. You will, however, need to ensure that the cranberry juice is fresh and natural, without any sweeteners.
  2. Hygiene: Keeping yourself clean is one of the most important ways in which you can avoid UTI. It is best to clean from front to back, rather than the other way, so that you drive away bacteria and dirt. Also, make sure that you wash your private parts with warm water infused with a few drops of normal liquid antibacterial, so that you can be sure that the bacteria do not get a chance to thrive and affect your system. Also, remember to use soaps, washes and creams that have a mild formula, rather than a harsh chemical concoction. Hygiene for this area of the body includes keeping it dry.
  3. Diet: Your diet should have plenty of fluids and lemons or other citrus food that are rich in vitamin c, as this is a good vitamin to keep bacteria at bay. Also, you should eliminate sweet and refined products to ensure that you do not contract UTI. Other foods to avoid include caffeine and alcohol.
  4. Clothing: Wear airy and cotton based undergarments that are breathable and have a soft texture. This non abrasive type clothing can also help in keeping the area dry, so that bacteria does not get a chance to develop, as they typically need a damp environment for growth. Change your undergarments twice a day, if need be, and avoid wearing trousers and shorts that are too tight.

These tips and many others including urinating as soon as the urge sets in, can help in fighting the risk of contracting UTI during pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
