Your mother's poor appetite could be because of the ca breast or ckd or both. She would probably be best served with good quality regular dialysis and proper treatment of her ca breast.

Urinary tract infections in adults - Prevention


Not all urinary tract infections (UTIs) can be prevented, but there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing an infection.


Cranberry juice and capsules
Drinking cranberry juice may help prevent UTIs. If you have had recurring UTIs, higher-strength cranberry capsules are recommended. These are available from most pharmacists and supermarkets.

Don't drink cranberry juice or take cranberry capsules if you are taking warfarin (a medicine used to prevent blood clots).

Treat constipation promptly
Constipation can increase your chances of developing a UTI. Recommended treatments for constipation include:
increasing the amount of fibre in your diet (20g to 30g of fibre a day)

using a mild laxative on a short-term basis
drinking plenty of fluids

See your GP if your symptoms don't improve or if your child is constipated.

Diaphragms and condoms

If you're a woman, using a diaphragm for contraception can increase the risk of getting a UTI. This is because the diaphragm may press on your bladder and prevent it emptying completely when you urinate.

If you use a diaphragm and have recurring UTIs, you might want to consider changing to another method of contraception. There are 15 different methods of contraception to choose from.
If you get recurring UTIs and you use condoms, try using condoms that don't have a spermicidal lubricant on them – it will say whether it does on the packet.

Spermicidal lubricant can cause irritation and make it more likely that you'll get a UTI. There are lots of condoms that have non-spermicidal lubricant, so use these instead.
Other useful advice
The following advice may be useful in helping you keep your bladder and urethra free from bacteria:

drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and help clear bacteria from the urinary tract
go to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to urinate, rather than holding it in
wipe from front to back after going to the toilet
practise good hygiene by washing your genitals every day, and before having sex.
empty your bladder after having sex

My Father's kidney is failed. Its almost fail. It is just working 8-9%. What is the best treatment for that?

DNB (Nephrology), MD (Internal Medicine), MBBS
Nephrologist, Gurgaon
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user with the limited data provided it is not possible to provide a comprehensive opinion. But if the egfr of your father is 8-9% as described then it is time to consider some form of renal replacement therapy for him. The options are hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplantation. Please get him evaluated at the earliest.

There are several reasons for pain in abdomen while urinating could be due to obstruction of the urinary passage/renal stone/UTI. The cause needs to be identified- based on the same treatment would begin.

This problem will not be solved by antibiotics. You are suffering from a disease called grahani & the main thing responsible for it is weak digestion & your erratic lifestyle. Please consult me privately with all your doctor reports for complete treatment.

Hello. Darker urine is usually a sign that you're not drinking enough fluid. Certain medications can turn the urine fluorescent green or blue, vitamins can give it a yellow hue. Yellow urine may also there in jaundice. Certain food also turns the colour of urine yellow like beetroot. Blood in the urine, also known as Haematuria, can cause darker urine. Haemolytic Anemia can cause dark yellow urine color. Hepatitis (inflammation of liver) can cause a darker urine color. So, get your urine tested and blood tested for CBC & LFT done.
