Liver is the main chemical laboratory of our body to detoxify any metabolites generated. We do not want to tax liver as she had hepatitis. Avoid chuttenys. Uncooked, stale food. She can have chapati with boiled or less oily vegetables. Totally fried food to be avoided atleast for few weeks. Her enzymes *& bilirubin to be monitor. Rest is the best medicine. Once the liver function test comes to normal, she can gradually start activities & same applies to food.

I am 29 Years old. Mujhe 4mm stone kidney mai hai. Mai iska solution janna chata hu.

MBBS
General Physician,
Generally it should dissolve by its own. You should get an usg done to know the proper location of stone or is it causing any obstruction in pathway. If you r having any synptoms then there might be a need of surgical managements. Else there are few good syrups that can help dissolving these small sized stones.

I am 21 years old. While urination blood releases. It comes for 3-4 days a week. Please help me.

MBBS
General Physician,
Blood in urine should not be neglected. Get a urine routine and microscopic examination done. Consult a nephrologist or urologist. It might be due to bladder pathology like cystitis, any lesion in bladder, for which cystoscopy might be needed later to confirm or it might be due to a kidney infection or lesion in kidney that can be confirmed by usg kub f/b biopsy if needed. Also if you had any recent history of throat infection mention it to your consultant.

Kidneys clear impurities from blood and remove the waste in form of urine ? There are two types of stones: o Uric acid stones o Calcium stones (90% of the stones) Urine turns brown or red in colour due to presence of blood ? Uncontrollable urge to urinate ? Nausea ? Vomiting ? As stones grow, they cause unbearable pain ? Crystallisation of chemicals and minerals present in urine leads to kidney stones Natural home remedy using kidney beans: 1. Take 60 gm kidney beans 2. Add 4 L of water 3. Heat for 4-5 hr 4. Strain the liquid through a fine muslin cloth 5. Allow the liquid to cool 6. Drink 1 glass of this liquid once every 2 hr in a day 7. Do this for a week 8. Do not use the liquid or the beans again 24 hr after the 1st preparation Tips: ? Drink a glass of apple juice every day These remedies are based on the principles of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of healing, and are completely natural, non-invasive, and can be prepared at home. Consult your doctor if the symptoms persist.

if you are not sure about the stone in kidney better get ct scan abdomen done, sometimes body organ moves up and down in jogging or running may cause pain.

A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract.

Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming.

However, these inhibitors do not seem to work for everyone, so some people form stones. A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract. Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming.

Dear lybrate-user, at the age of 45 enlarged prostrate does not appear to be the best of the diagnosis. What is your exact complaint? do you have to go frequently to pass urine or does it take a lot of time during passing the same. Kindly consult with detailed reports.

Hello! I'm Arjun and my father (age 59) is suffering from kidney disease, his current creatinine level is 6 mg/dl, he's having diabetes type 2, recently heart surgery also done to my father in which they kept a stunt in heart,! Now the problem is with kidney, does he needed dialysis now? And if yes what are the problems associated with it? Thank you.

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Nephrologist, Noida
lybrate-user, Sometimes due to surgery and dye given creatinine level increases, have a watch on this level if it's decreases no need of dialysis and if it's increasing and he has symptoms like blanching breathlessness, bradycardia, hyperkalemia, etc he would be requiring dialysis. No such side effects of it, just make sure you get it done from good dialysis centre where infection rates are less and nephrologist is available all the time to look after.

Many a times UTI is associated with vaginal infection also. Drink 15 to 20 glasses of water which will clear the infection. Feeling in vagina such is due to acidic area there .One may feel tingling sensations also.

My problem is I am going too much time toilet on a day give me a suggestion what can I do.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Spending toomuch time in toilet is the indication of improper digestion, excretion. I. E. Constipation. Try to take more water. Like 3-4 litres minimum/day. If you drink 1/2-1 litre of water in morming with emoty stomach, then its very good pressure builder& good in general also. Take more fruits. Not filtered juices, try to take with ulp, & wherever possible with external layers also. Take more fibre rich contents like, whole wheat, hand pounded rice, green leafy veg, veg salads, oats, sprouts, daily do exercises regularly without fail, as the movement is mandatory for internal organs.
