Dear if you do not have any other symptoms then get urine test done to rule out infection. For now try to decrease your fluid intake to 2 litres a day and see what happens. If frequency still remains the same then you need usg (kub). Dr. Kiran mehta.

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.

You are having infection in the genitals which is causing something called as pelvic inflammatory disease. This require proper treatment with a course of antibiotics and antifungal medicines. The smell in white discharge is due to the polonged uncontrolled infection. So need to take proper treatment for the same. So consult local gynaecologist for proper exam and treatment or else come back for the treatment part as we can not prescribe medicines in this open questions, prescription can be given only in private questions. Mean while maintain proper genital hygiene by washing the genitals with water after passing urine every time and dry it. Dispose the diapers after single use. Maintain general cleanliness. Good luck.

What do to remove my stone in right kidney?

Dietitian/Nutritionist,
What do to remove my stone in right kidney?
What are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history one may prescribe pain relievers.

Hydronephrosis per se doesn't need any dietary advice. If the urea level is high you will require low protein in diet as per your weight and dietary preferences.

Can drinking water with lemon prevent kidney stones? Also, I have been told not to drink city water. What is the best water to drink?

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
Can drinking water with lemon prevent kidney stones? Also, I have been told not to drink city water. What is the best...
Hi, lemon has a high potassium and citrate content. Both these help in dissolving existing stone and preventing further stone formation. The amount of water is more important than the type of water. In general avoid ro demineralized water. Natural minerals are essential for normal body and kidney function. Reverse osmosis removes most of the minerals from water. Aim to keep urine colour very pale throughout day and night. Keep urine output at least 2.5 litres per day. Avoid drinking a lot of water at one time and not drinking for many hours. Uniform and continuous hydration is important, even at night. Apart from good water intake, daily aerobic exercises, reduction in salt and animal protein intake and adequate calcium intake (reduced calcium intake can increase stone risk due to elevated oxalate) are important to prevent kidney stones. Wish you good health.

I have a kidney stone prblem it is 7mm what can i do

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
I have a kidney stone prblem it is 7mm 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 becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG. B/W take 2 tsf neeri syrup thrice daily after meals.
