Mt friend is suffering for 0.22 mm of kidney stone for more than 3months what should be done to dissolve it?
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 mom are facing problem of kidney stone, diabetes and high BP problem please suggest some good diet.

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--------

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , it is a protein which should not be thrown out in urine. However in absence of infection and bleeding in urine it usually suggests some sort of kidney damage which may be because of variety of diseases and one most common culprit being diabetes.
