Hello sir, I have kidney stone too much pain in my LH kidney Please suggest me medicine
Dear, you should follow these very important and simple things in your daily life to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 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.

Does the patient in Gilbert's syndrome bilirubin increases due to any infection in body.

General Physician,
Does the patient in Gilbert's syndrome bilirubin increases due to any infection in body.
Some people with Gilbert's syndrome become mildly jaundiced from time to time. This may seem alarming, but is of little concern if the cause is Gilbert's syndrome. The jaundice tends to occur most commonly if you are ill with another problem such as: An infection. Starvation. Repeatedly being sick (vomiting). Following surgery. During times of exertion or stress. If you have Gilbert's syndrome there are some medicines which you should avoid if alternatives are available.

Hi, please get a urine microscopy test done. If it is normal, just take lot of fluids and lemon juice. If it shows any abnormality, get a ultrasound of kidney and bladder region. These tests will rule out any stone or urinary infection which are the common causes of these symptoms. If both these tests are normal and still you continue to have these symptoms, please consult a urologist. Wish you a good health,

Hello Nyra, Blood on the stools can be most likely due to fissures. Piles can also lead to blood in stools but considering your age, it is most likely fissures. You can apply Topi Aesculus homeopathic cream on the anus twice a day. It will reduce the fissure. Drink a lot of water, minimum 4-5 litres in a day. Make sure that your stools are soft and you dont have to strain at the stools. Eat one banana in a day or any other fruit. But make sure that you are consuming at least one fruit in a day.

Hi, from what you have mentioned above, it seems that you have got diabetes which is usually associated with the above symptoms. It is advisable to consult a diabetologist and get your condition treated. For dry mouth, you need to increase saliva secretion in your mouth. This can be achieved by increasing your fluid intake and by drinking lot of water. Sugar free gums are available in the market which can also help in increasing salivary production.

Hypochondria (health anxiety) is a form of chronic psychological stress that millions of people around the world suffer from on a daily basis. 1. Allow yourself to feel these feelings - the first step in overcoming such an issue in one's life, is to first accept the way you are feeling. Many people with hypochondria tend to be very anxious of the fact that they have health fears! yes, the psychosomatic nature of this condition truly knows no bounds! it is important that you consciously accept the way you are feeling, rather than unconsciously fighting against it, which only creates further internal stress and conflict. However, when you allow yourself to feel your feelings, you release resistance and open to the healing process. 2. Surrender to uncertainty - we all have to live with degrees of uncertainty in our lives. One of the core roots of hypochondria is the fear of death, which is something that every human being must confront at some point in their lifetime. When you begin to surrender to the uncertainty of life, you free yourself from the chains of fear, and instead, begin to embrace your divine awareness. 3. Stop googling your'symptoms' - this is by far one of the most notorious habits of someone suffering with hypochondria. However, freeing yourself of this habit is one of the keys to success as it helps to neutralise the pattern that one has ingrained in their consciousness over many years in their life. This is the pattern of seeking reassurance or validation outside of oneself. There is a big lesson to be learned here, and one that will become clearer to you as you begin transmuting such habits. 4. Trust your own judgement - although this is one of the fundamental challenges for someone dealing with hypochondria, it is something that can be very effectively addressed through gradual steps. In your day to day life, for example, when doing certain individually assigned tasks at work, just become conscious of when you ask other people for their opinion or advice on whatever it is you are doing. As you develop more self-awareness of this, begin to make small-scale decisions based purely on your own judgement. At first, this can seem very daunting, but you will be surprised how powerful your intuition really is! understand that even if you do make a'mistake' that's ok! everyone makes mistakes! how would we truly learn anything without making them? 5. Go for a walk in nature - it's one of the simplest tools, but one that can absolutely transform your day from one of doom and gloom to one of optimism and self-empowerment! get those legs moving, get those lungs breathing that clean fresh air, and get out in nature. I assure you it will help to purify your body, mind and spirit of any negative energies. Become conscious of what is around you. Pay careful attention to nature - she can teach you many wonderful things about her laws and the bliss it will bring to your life by living in accordance with them. The key here is to listen with your heart, rather than your ears. I hope that you find benefit in applying these to your own life, and remember, it's not how quickly you are able to transform. Rather, it's the patience and kindness you have with yourself for making an effort to positively change your life, one step at a time! peace of mind to you warm regards,

Hi, lemon has a high potassium and citrate content. Both these help in dissolving existing stone and preventing further stone formation. The amount of water is more important than the type of water. In general avoid ro demineralized water. Natural minerals are essential for normal body and kidney function. Reverse osmosis removes most of the minerals from water. Aim to keep urine colour very pale throughout day and night. Keep urine output at least 2.5 litres per day. Avoid drinking a lot of water at one time and not drinking for many hours. Uniform and continuous hydration is important, even at night. Apart from good water intake, daily aerobic exercises, reduction in salt and animal protein intake and adequate calcium intake (reduced calcium intake can increase stone risk due to elevated oxalate) are important to prevent kidney stones. Wish you good health.

Mr. lybrate-user. Medicines can improve the urinary symptoms for long time and if it fails then go for surgery. Medicines have minimal side effects but surge has its complications.
