Greetings ma'am, foamy urine is seen in proteinuria; a condition in which the kidneys may be responsible for the loss of protein. However there are varieties of conditions in which one may have proteinuria. Advice - get a complete urine examination done with special emphasis on proteinuria. A qualitative analysis of the urine specimen is more reliable. However for all practical purposes I would recommend good hydration and also to refrain from intense physical exercise for a week and see the changes (which could be the reason). If the foaming persists please go ahead and get the tests done. Also bodybuilders are prone to over supplementation of supplemental proteins (protein powders) which may also lead to proteinuria sometimes. Thanks.

Urinary Problems

Hello, I am Dr Anil Agarwal I am a practising Urologist for the last 15 years, I practice in Rohini in Delhi. Today I am going to talk about urinary problems faced by both men and women. Let's start with problems faced by women first, women may have four types of problems like burning in the urine, difficulty to pass urine, increase frequency to pass urine and sometimes involuntary leakage of urine. Burning in urine is generally due to infection and it is very common starting from a young age to the elderly, this is very common in the very young girls and elderly females, treatment is very simple with medication. Now when women have difficulty to pass urine, they have strain to pass urine it means there is a structure of the urinary pipe i.e. urethra. Third, when women have increased frequency to pass urin that is due to changes in the bladder wall musculature which results in increase times that a woman has to go to pass urine during the day and night, they may have also experience the urgency to pass urine and sometimes during the urgency they may even leak urine. Now, most of the women are hesitate to come to the doctor because they feel what kind of physical examination that will be done, I assure all women that no physical examination is required, it is only some tests that may be required and treatment is with medication. Even if some procedure is required endoscopy which we called cystoscopy toh kripya zizak na karen aur apne doctor se sampark karen, kisi tarah ki physical jaanch nahi ki jati hai. There is another condition called stress urinary incontinence in which women may pass urine during coughing or sneezing, this is due to laxity of the pelvic floor muscles when the muscles become lax they do not support the urethra and the patient may pass urine during sneezing and coughing. The treatment is with some exercises and those people who do not respond to the exercises may need a very simple surgery which is Day Care surgery, in which we put a tape below the urethra and patient can go home the same evening. So that was about women, in short, now let's discuss urinary problems in men. In males generally, they have 5 types of problems like a urinary infection in which they experience burning in the urine treatment is simple with antibiotics under the care of a urologist. Second, they may have prostatitis, prostatitis is the infection and inflammation of the prostate gland, it occurs in young males treatment is simple with antibiotics and other medications. The third thing which is more important and which is very important in an elderly male is BPH that is enlargement of the prostate gland. In young age, the prostate gland is very small and generally, it becomes walnuts size gland at the age of around 50 years, most of the males have problems after 50 years. In which what happens is when the gland enlarges then it compressors from the urethra and there is difficulty to pass urine, generally these patients have a weak stream increased frequency to pass urine during the day and night, they may have sense of incomplete wording, they may have straining, they may have recurrent urinary infections, these patient are first investigated with ultrasound and urine analysis, kidney function test and the euroflomia treatment after that the treatment is started. In my practice and with the experience that I have, that 9 more than 90% of these patients can be treated from medications alone which are very safe. Now, what happens if you ignore these urinary problems in males, the urinary problems if you ignore may have a recurrent urinary infection, stones in the urinary bladder and may even lead to damage to the kidneys. So I urge the people not to ignore this problem and to consult a urologist. Fourth we may have a condition called cancer in the prostate if detected early then it is potentially curable. Fore thing is stricture urethra it might be difficult to treat urethra but now under endoscopic surgery helps a lot. If you have blood in the urine please don't ignore blood in the urine it may be a tumor in a urinary bladder, you have to consult a urologist and I assure you the treatment is very simple and it is endoscopy. Thank you all for a very patient hearing and wish you all the all very happy and healthy life.

4 Types of Kidney Stones and Their Common Symptoms

4 Types of Kidney Stones and Their Common Symptoms

The 4 types of kidney stones and their common symptoms

Defined as hard and small mineral deposits that develop inside your kidney, kidney stones are made up of acid salts and minerals. The causes of this disease are not well-defined, although risk factors include drinking very little amounts of water and having a diet rich in sodium, protein and oxalate (chocolate and green leafy foods for example). However, knowing the type of kidney stone you suffer from can help ascertain the cause.

Here are the common types of kidney stones.

Struvite stones

This type of kidney stone is usually a response to certain kind of infection, such as a urinary tract infection for example. Characterised by rapid growth and a large size, struvite stones can develop without any warning signs.

Calcium stones

These are the most common type and are caused by a diet rich in oxalate. Risk factors for calcium stones include a diet consisting of plenty of nuts, chocolates and certain fruits and vegetables; metabolic disorders, high doses of vitamin d and intestinal bypass surgery, all of which can increase the amounts of calcium or oxalate in your urine, indicating the development of kidney stones.

Cystine stones

Those individuals with a hereditary disorder that causes their kidneys to produce certain amino acids (cystinuria to be precise) in excess are most likely to get cystine stones.

Uric acid stones

These are common in those whose diets are lacking in water or those who suffer from the excess fluid loss. People with a high protein diet and those who suffer from gout are also at risk. Genetic factors play a major role as well in increasing your risk of getting uric acid stones.

Apart from these, there are other rarer types of kidney stones that can also arise depending on a combination of an individual's lifestyle and genetic make-up.

However, to determine whether you're suffering from any of the aforementioned types of kidney stones, you must first know its common symptoms, which are:

 

  •   excruciating pain in your sides, and back, especially below your ribs
  •   feelings of pain in the groin and the lower parts of your abdomen
  •   intense and fluctuating pain that comes and goes in waves
  •   pain while urinating
  •   urine that is red, brown or pink in colour
  •   urine that's cloudy or has a foul odour
  •   vomiting and nausea
  •   constant urge to urinate
  •   increased frequency of urination
  •   urinating in small amounts
  •   chills and fever in case of an infection

How To Treat Kidney Stones?

How To Treat Kidney Stones?

Our kidneys are an important organ in the body and are responsible for the filtration of blood and creation of urine. Sometimes, during this process salt and other chemicals get stuck together to form small crystals also known as kidney stones. The size of a kidney stone can range from the size of a sugar crystal to the size of a ping pong ball. However, it is noticed only if it is large enough to cause a blockage. Smaller stones may pass out of the body without you realizing it.

Kidney stones can be a very painful experience. Some of the symptoms exhibited by patients suffering from kidney stones are:

1. Severe back pain
2. Pain in the belly or groin
3. Painful urination
4. Frequent urination
5. Nausea and vomiting
6. Blood in the urine

Excruciating pain is usually the symptom that makes a patient consult a doctor in cases of kidney stone problems. A confirmed diagnosis can then be made by using a series of tests that include an X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan and urine analysis. A blood test may also be conducted to check the mineral levels in the body.

Kidney stones are a common condition faced by many people, but some people are at a higher risk of suffering from this than others. Some of these factors are:

1. Family history of kidney stones
2. High uric acid levels in the blood
3. Being between 20-50 years of age
4. A previous kidney stone
5. Chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure
6. Some medication such as diuretics and antacids with calcium
7. Inadequate fluid intake

Between men and women, the former are at a higher risk of suffering from kidney stones. Asians and Caucasians also suffer from this condition more than people from other races. Hormone changes during pregnancy can also trigger the formation of kidney stones.

The first thing to do if you suffer from a kidney stone is to increase your water intake. This can help dissolve some of the minerals in the stone and make it a small enough to pass through the urethra. Injectable anti-inflammatory drugs and pain relievers may be used to ease the pain caused by kidney stones.

If the kidney stone does not pass on its own, a process known as lithotripsy may also be used. This involves the administration of shock waves that can break a large stone into smaller pieces. In extreme cases, surgical techniques may also be used. However, Lithotripsy in only one of the ways of treatment and given in only selected cases nowadays. Better ways of treatment are: 

  1. Ureteroscopy- seeing the stone through a long telescope through the urine passage and removing it.
  2. PCNL- removing kidney stone by a small puncture into the kidney through the skin.
  3. RIRS- visualising the stone in the kidney with a bendable telescope and breaking the stone using laser.

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an urologist.
