My mom are facing problem of kidney stone, diabetes and high BP problem please suggest some good diet.
To help manage your diabetes and BP, your meals need to be:--- •Regular and spread evenly throughout the day-- •Lower in fat, particularly saturated fat------------ •If you take insulin or diabetes tablets, you may need to have between meal snacks------- Matching the amount of food you eat with the amount you burn up each day is important. Not putting too much fuel in your body (keeping food intake to moderate serves) is vital to getting the right balance. Along with healthy eating, regular physical activity can help you to manage your blood glucose levels, reduce your blood fats (cholesterol and triglycerides) and maintain a healthy weight. ----------------------. It is important to recognise that one diet does not fit everyone with diabetes. So my slogan for all diabetics is-------------'One Diet does Not Fit All'------------------------ So your mother should consult a dietician in physical to plan a way according to her body weight, activities and tastes and requirements. Only then can you control your blood sugar levels and BP problem--------

I have kidney stone problem what can i do
Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report coz herbal medicines for removing stones can be given according to size and number and location of stones.

It depends on type of ovarian cyst. Looking at your age, it must be functional cyst only and may require hormonal treatment. Still need to know more things about the cyst, your menstrual problem and family history. So better you consult your gynaecologist or me privately.

What are the symptoms of kidney failure?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician
Ask Free Question
Symptoms of kidney failure are due to the build-up of waste products in the body that may cause weakness, shortness of breath, lethargy, and confusion. Inability to remove potassium from the bloodstream may lead to abnormal heart rhythms and sudden death. Initially kidney failure may cause no symptoms. There are numerous causes of kidney failure, and treatment of the underlying disease may be the first step in correcting the kidney abnormality. Some causes of kidney failure are treatable and the kidney function may return to normal. Unfortunately, kidney failure may be progressive in other situations and may be irreversible. Ask me privately in case of help needed.

Dear get urine tested. If it shows more than 5 pus cells then you have infection. Then one has to take antibiotics for 15 days and the recheck urine to see pus cells have gone. If recurrent or persistent then try to find out the cause and that cause has to be treated. Drink plenty of fluids.

Normally urine does not have presence of albumin which is an important body protein and not allowed by kidney membrane to pass through it. In some acute infections especially of kidney, the membrane cannot hold it and it is seen in urine in small quantities. Even without infections, during some toxic manifestations also, like in toxaemia of pregnancy this may be seen. If there is no damage to kidney membrane, this stops after some period but consistent presence of albumin in urine is an important sign of glomerular membrane pathology. If you are having swelling on your feet and legs, puffiness of face, then go for some more checks like total serum proteins, albumin globulin ratio, urea and creatinine levels, etc. It is better to consult a qualified physician.
