6 Symptoms Of Kidney Stones And Its Homeopathic Treatment!

6 Symptoms Of Kidney Stones And Its Homeopathic Treatment!

Kidney stone formation is the most common kidney disease, and people who have had it, would immediately be reminded of the severe pain (loin to groin) in the back.

How stones are formed?

  1. The kidney functions as the body’s filters in removing wastes from the body through urine.
  2. Most of the waste is in the form of salts and when there is excessive salts and reduced amount of water, there could be formation of crystals or stones in the kidneys.

Symptoms

  1. Reduced amount of urination
  2. Blood in the urine due to damage of the urinary tract structures
  3. Painful urination with burning sensation
  4. Swollen abdomen
  5. Nausea and Vomiting
  6. Fever and chills

Benefits of homeopathic remedies
Kidney stones are highly likely to be recurrent. A number of factors contribute to their formation. Homeopathy aims at treating the whole body and not just dissolving the stones. It offers various remedies, which ensure the stones are completely dissolved and also prevent recurrence.

Remedies

  1. Berberis Vulgaris is prescribed for the following conditions:
    • Very useful in left-sided stones where patient experiences pain radiating to the ureter, bladder, and urethra and down to the thighs.
    • Burning sensation with urination
    • Slightly red or green urine with mucus (increased consistency of urine)
    • Increase in pain with any kind of physical movement
    • Soreness in the lumbar region of the kidneys
  2. Cantharis is suitable for the following conditions:
    • Paroxysms of renal colic with cutting and stabbing pains
    • Severe pain before and after urination in the urethral area
    • Constant urge to urinate, but very little flow
    • No relief even after sitting and straining
    • Bloody urine (slightly pinkish tinge), if there is damage to internal structures
    • Sharp tearing pain when this damage happens
    • Thirst and aversion to all fluids
  3. Lycopodium is one of the most reliable homeopathic medicines for right-sided kidney stones.
    • Works better for right-sided stones, where it dissolves them completely
    • Severe backache experienced by the affected person prior to passing urine, which reduces after urination
    • Great urge to urinate, even at night
    • Presence of sediments (red or yellow) in the urine
    • Abdominal bloating with distention along with right-sided kidney pain
  4. Hydrangea, also referred to as the stone breaker, reduces chances of recurrence of kidney stones in the following conditions:
    • Right-sided pain
    • Blood-tinged urine
    • Increased frequency of urination
    • Lots of white sediments in the urine

Yes it can be UTI again. Ideally antibiotics should be continued after the culture becomes negative. Some residual infection might have present and is becoming evident. Do urine culture and start her on antibiotics again asap.

My wife recently started experiencing issues while urination. Blood in urine, burning sensation and difficultly while urination. We did sonography and urine test, and it was identified that there was a swelling in her right uterus and urine test indicated infection. After few medications the problem recovered. Again next week she started complaining same. We did the tests again and couldn't find anything else the urine infection. After medications it stopped. But it again started, so we are now worried what happened suddenly. Is there any test which can help us understand what happened suddenly and how this problem can be resolved. Her periods are regular and she had kidney stones which were removed in December 2016. Please advise.

She should drink plenty of fluids orally. Her urine culture sensitivity test may direct further need of antibiotics. Alkalinizing liquids like Syp Cital 15 ml diluted in a glass of water after meals twice to thrice a day may be continued until the burning stops. Local hygiene has to be taken care of and frequent change of pads during menses. Also genital cleaning should be from front to back and not the reverse. She may try a ten day course of Tab Tolterodine 2 mg once daily. It may give symptomatic relief.

Two months ago I had UTI. On getting tests done, calcium oxalate was found in my urine culture and also there was presence of E. Coli. I took levofloxacin for 7 days twice a day. Now again it has relapsed. There is always a burning sensation without micturition. I have stopped taking calcium though I am calcium deficit. I was also diagnosed of polycystic ovarian syndrome. Kindly suggest medication and precaution. I have not had physical relationship for last 3 months as my husband is not here.

You should take the calcium supplements. Upto 1 gm a day is acceptable. Drink a lot of water to keep the urine dilute always. Local hygiene is important. Take Syp Cital 15 ml diluted in a glass of water after meals twice a day until the burning sensation stops. You may have to take an adequate course of culture specific antibiotics.

Prolapsed Bladder And Its Symptoms!

Prolapsed Bladder And Its Symptoms!

A bladder is an organ that stores urine in the body. A prolapsed bladder occurs when the tissue present between the vagina and the bladder is stretched, resulting in a bulge in the bladder. This can result in complications such as leakage of urine and difficulty in passing the same. Based on the severity of the damage, it is classified into four categories -
 

  1. Mild: A small area of the bladder bulges in the vagina
  2. Moderate: The bladder bulges near the vaginal opening
  3. Severe: Protrusion of the bladder occurs through the vaginal opening
  4. Complete: The entire area of the bladder protrudes completely from the body via the opening of the vagina

The symptoms of a prolapsed bladder are: 

  1. Feeling of intense pressure around the pelvic area
  2. Infections related to the bladder
  3. Pain during sexual intercourse
  4. Tissues bulging out through the vaginal opening
  5. Pain in the lower back region

Prolapsed bladder is caused by:

  1. Childbirth: It can cause ligaments and pelvic muscles to weaken thus increasing their vulnerability to a prolapsed bladder
  2. The chances of this disorder increases when one is overweight
  3. Lifting heavy things
  4. Strain caused by bowel movements 
  5. In some cases, it may result from a chronic cough
  6. Menopause, as it limits production of estrogen which helps in maintaining healthy tissues in the vagina

It is advised to check with a medical professional if you experience these symptoms, as a prolapsed bladder can worsen with time if left untreated.

Thanks for the query. Insulin is usually recommended to be taken half an hour before food. Because by the time digestion of food converts it to glucose, insulin is available for action. Insulin does not cause any other side effects. Occasionally if food delayed or if inadequate food is taken, then there is a possibility of glucose level going down (hypoglycemia). If you have any other doubts please come back. Thanks.

lybrate-user If your uncle kidney have stop working than dialysis is option for time being. In case of acute factor on chronic kidney disease than dialysis may stop in few patients but full recovery in CKD stage 2 is not possible. If kidney is chronic damage stage 4-5 than would be needing dialysis 2-3 times / week.

If stone is large, it may not come out in the urine just by medicines. And stones are often associated with infection too. You may need to consider endoscopic stone surgery.
