I am suffering from incontinence of urine, due to this I always keep tissue paper in my underwear, will it create any problem because I have heard not to keep your penis and balls in tight underwear it wil reduce sperm count?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if you could void the urine in sitting position.

This is for my father. He is suffering from some problem of urine release. From some days he can understand, that the urine stored in his urine bag, is too much, But When he try to release it, a small amount is release from body and for that reason , he needs to go to toilet after a few hour back or sometime half an hour back & every time the same thing happened mentioned above. So, If somebody among you will tell me Its probable reason. Its solution & what kind of doctor should needed us to make a physical check-up . I am from a rulal area , I don’t have the sufficient knowledge on doctor category. So, I am humbly requesting you to please help me. I will always be thankful to all of you. The weight given to you is approximate. I don't know the proper weight. Thanking you

Thank you for the query. From the symptoms you have mentioned, it seems that your father is probably suffering from prostatomegaly. In this condition the prostate gland enlarges and causes an obstruction in the urine outflow pathway. This leads to incomplete evacuation of the bladder at once, and hence the need for frequent urination and urinary retention. Your father needs a usg of the lower abdomen to see the status of the prostate and measurement of the residual urinary volume. A serum psa may be done. You need to consult a urosurgeon who can give you further opinion of the same. Some medications are available but in most cases a small surgery may be needed. A uroflowmetry may be needed. Regards

Dear lybrate user, you may be suffering from spermatorrhoea. Continue the following medications for at least 20 days to get rid of your problem of spermatorrhoea:- 1) take 5 drops of homoeopathic china 30 or cinchona officinalis 30, thrice daily, in empty stomach. 2) take 30 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture acid phos q in a cup of water daily after lunch. 3) take 30 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture withania somnifera q in a cup of water daily after dinner. Apart from medicines you could try a home therapy. Soak 5 grams of fennel seeds (snouff) & 5 grams of rock candy (misri) in a glass of water before going to bed daily. On waking up next morning drink the snouf-misri soaked water in empty stomach.

What is the symptoms and characters of kidney stone disease i am may suffering from it ?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
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 becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG.

My father 68 age now he had weekly 2 time dialyses. Now the creatinine and urine level is medium. How to minimize and stop the dialyses?

MD - Pathology
General Physician, Amritsar
What do you mean by medium. Serum creatinine levels cannot be allowed to rise beyond certain level. Dialysis is related with it. Take all the dietary precautions given to you. Kidney of chronic renal failure doesn't revive. Don't take any local medicine as it can do more harm.

Swollen urethra will have less sensitivity! I mean to ask if some how your urethra get infected the feeling of movement of urine or semen will be less!

M Ch urology
Urologist, Darbhanga
Swollen urethra is commonly because of infection. This causes inflamation which tend to increase the sensitivity. A coincidently inflamed bladder will cause increases frequency to go to void. However voided volume in such case remains low. When you pass urine you will feel burning sensation. If inflamation is severe it will further decrease the flow of urine. Such patient will not be able to empty the bladder and will have to go to pass urine quite frequently.

Please note that the normal color of urine is straw-yellow. However if you have pain when not urinating then get urine check for r/e & culture to rule out any UTI.

Sir, I am severely suffering from pain in kidneys. Suspecting to have stones. Whay should do to control the pain immediately. Pls suggest.

Better to see any urologist as investigations are required for urinary stones or else. For time being may take gokshuradi or gokhru kwath 20 ml two times in a day with water after food. If interested for full treatment inform.

Which food items should be taken and what should be avoided in case of kidney stone. Is milk an allowed product?

Plenty of water and Fruits having water contents. Cabbage, spinach, and other veg having rich oxilate contents be avoided.

MBBS

Dear lybrate user, -The kidney stones will be removed from the roots by laser but if she doesn't take precautions after that they can again form -she should have plenty of fluids including8-10 glasses of water per day to flush out the toxins & to keep the kidneys healthy, also avoid spicy, fried food & intake of calcium substitutes for a long period if she consumes them -get regular checkups & investigations done to avoid recurrence.

I found a stone of 7mm in my kidney on ultrasound. I am taking water around 1 litre a day. I started taking around 3 litres a day now. Is it will be helpful or I have to consult a doctor. There is no pain also. Please suggest.

Definitely helps. In case of renal stones best thing is to drink 3-4 liters of water per day. Decrease salt and non veg. Repeat scan after 3 months. Depending on size next time treatment is based.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Please send usg/ skiagram report and any other test details. Also send clinical problems you feel. There are some devoctions and herbal combos for long term use capable of dissolving renal stones. Duration depends on size, location, consistency etc. However lots of liquid also helps to dissolve n expel stones but medicines also check the process of formation of renal stones which surgery or lithotripsy can't do.

I have e coli from last 2 months even after continuous medication. My current urine culture report have 100000 colony count of bacteria. sensitive medicines are ciproflaxin, gentamycin, cephalocin (first line of medication). Is anything serious in having colony count 100000.

CCEBDM, PG Diploma In Clinical cardiology, MBBS

Not serious. This indicates UTI and needs proper treatment. Do 1.Pass urine whenever you feel a desire, empty bladder completely. 2.Wipe from front to back after toilet 3.Take lots of water so as to have clear urine 4.Do not use any spray, scented bath products 5.Try to take shower rather than bath 6.Clean genitals before sex and pass urine after sex to flush out any bacteria 7.Keep genital area dry- wear cotton, loose under garments, avoid tight clothes like jeans for medicine contact on private chat.
