Hi, all the chronic problems including ckd never goes to higher stages all of sudden. It passes through stage 1 & 2 initially. You father may have some symptoms which either he ignored or the symptoms were so subtle that he couldn't able to feel them also, a regular thorough check-up is always recommended to every person annually, which your father might have ignored. He can maintain the same stage he is currently in, if he follows a healthy diet and lifestyle. *********consult a nutritionist*****

General Physician,
Hello Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have frequency with burning micturation due to urethritis secondary to excessive masturbation. You need medications, avoid masturbation till you become all right completely. If you really want to come out of this join my private chat with your previous treatment details.

Liver disease can be inherited (genetic) or caused by a variety of factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Obesity is also associated with liver damage. Over time, damage to the liver results in scarring (cirrhosis), which can lead to many complications. Kidney stones form when the kidneys are not able to process toxins efficiently. Specifically, a crystallization of unprocessed minerals builds up. Kidney stones cause pain and possible blockage of urine flow. Tips to manage the condition drink plenty of water. Lower sodium intake. Exercise regularly to improve digestion. Light food intake recommended. Intake of makani at regular intervals. Rx kalamegha strong 10 ml twice a day after dilution a/f cyston tab 2_0_2a/ f for 3 weeks. After tests should be repeated.

I have to get up at least three to four times at night to pass urine. I get urge for passing urine and at times I drop urine before reaching washroom. I get the urge immediately after getting up from bed, the tendency is more psychological than physical in nature. I do my PSA done once in 6 months and it is under control.

Don't eat spicy foods and chilies. Drink plenty of water. Get your urine checked for evidence of any infection and get necessary treatment if the report suggests that.

Can a person alive if he is suffering from kidney failure just asking no one has problem just for knowledge.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate user, it is not only possible for a person to survive with kidney failure but a lot of our patients enjoy life in spite of kidney failure. Renal replacement therapy which is commonly known as dialysis has made that possible. Going a step further when a person gets renal transplant or more commonly known as kidney transplant- then even dialysis is not required. This is the scenario where the kidneys have completely failed. But even during the stages of failure, kidney offers an ample lifetime of years altogether before it completely fails leading to dialysis as the only solution. Our body has got immense resilience and this is true for our kidneys too.

Diabetic Nephropathy - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Nephrology

Diabetic Nephropathy - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

What is Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetic nephropathy (Diabetic Kidney Disease) is defined as the progressive damage to the kidneys caused by diabetes. It is characterised by the scarring of the glomeruli in the kidneys due to prolonged diabetes mellitus.

What Causes Diabetic Nephropathy?

Diabetes is a condition characterized by high concentration of blood sugar. Although the cause of Diabetes Nephropathy is not yet well defined, it is likely that the high sugar levels in the blood damage the blood vessels present in the kidneys that help to filter waste products, thus resulting in decreased kidney function and ultimately, kidney failure.

Not everyone with diabetes suffers from diabetic nephropathy. Although, factors that can increase your chances of getting diabetic neuropathy are-

  1. Smoking

  2. Poor control of blood glucose

  3. High blood pressure

  4. History of kidney diseases

What are the symptoms of diabetic nephropathy?

In the early stages, there may be no symptoms at all, but as the disease progresses, you may notice swelling in the extremities like your feet. Thus it is recommended to get your blood albumin levels tested on a regular basis. If it is diagnosed in early stages, the damage can be reversed. Other symptoms that can indicate damage to the kidneys are-

  1. Severe malaise

  2. Headaches

  3. Nausea

  4. Lack of appetite

  5. Frequent voiding

  6. Itchiness of skin

  7. General feeling of illness

Diagnostic tests that can confirm diabetic nephropathy are-

Routine urine test (urinalysis) - Kidney diseases are detected by the presence of a protein in the urine called albumin and this condition is called albuminuria. Other parameters that must be regularly monitored are-

  1. Blood pressure

  2. Cholesterol levels in your blood

How can you treat/ manage diabetic nephropathy?

If this type of nephropathy is diagnosed in the early stages, the damage to the kidneys can be reversible. The key to managing diabetic nephropathy are-

  1. Diet: Reduce the dietary intake of salt, phosphorous and potassium in the advanced stages.

  2. Glycemic Control: Monitor your blood glucose levels regularly

  3. Management of Hypertension: It is important to manage your blood pressure as it can have a direct effect on the coronary blood vessels which in turn pump blood to the various blood vessels of the body

  4. Renal Replacement Therapy: In chronically ill patients, renal replacement therapy is the best option. This can include haemodialysis (a procedure to flush out toxins from the blood, such as urea), peritoneal dialysis or ultimately renal transplantation.

Your esr if high needs to be investigated. Tuberculosis is one of the causes of high esr. So get your urine exam, chest xray and ultrasound of kidneys done.

The most important thing to take care now is tha the kidneys dont get damaged further. So control diabetes and BP if she has it. What is the fasting blood glucose level result? Consult in private on Lybrate or personally with information about your main complains, lifestyle, lab results and diet for detailed advice.

Beer does not melt any stones. This is a common misconception. For stones have plenty of water generally. Stones smaller than 6mm can pass spontaneously usually, larger stones may obstruct and may require some procedures. Medicines are available which help in passing small stones but please get ultrasound kub, for confirmation of diagnosis.

Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following in respect to your query: it could be simply due to a uti (urinary tract infection) you are suffering from. It could also be due to enlarge prostate (this is rare in a person at your age). Third it could be due to extreme cold at your place and you are taking/drinking lots of water. Please check the above causes and in case you require any further consultation get back to me. Thanks.
