Hello lybrate-user Premature Ejaculation It’s a disorder that can devastate a man’s self-esteem and spoil his relationships. Erectile Dysfunction, or impotency as it is commonly known, refers to a man’s inability to obtain or maintain erection of the penis during sexual activity. Obesity, heart disease, smoking, tobacco use, alcohol consumption, diabetes, psychological factors like stress, anxiety and negative feelings, the use of anti-depressants — all these usually contribute a lot to Erectile Dysfunction. Homeopathic remedies provides natural cures for Erectile Dysfunction. Made of substances sourced out of nature and having zero side effects, Homeopathic remedies can successfully treat Erectile Dysfunction. You can take William Shwabe's Damiaplant 15-20 drops in hot water 3 times a day. & Apis mellifica 30 power 3-3 pills 3 times a day. Continue for 3 months Thanks Any queries pls ask.

Kidney Disease - 8 Signs You Might Be Suffering From It!

Kidney Disease - 8 Signs You Might Be Suffering From It!

As important as your kidneys are to your overall well-being, symptoms of their malfunction can be less noticeable. Yet, early detection is vital to prevent future complications and permanent kidney damage. Here are eight warning signs to let you know that your detoxifying organ is not working right:

  1. High Blood Pressure: High blood pressure is the most common sign of kidney disease, all patients suffering from high blood pressure should know there kidney function status. There is a high chance that they might be suffering from a kidney disease.
  2. Swelling: Fluid retention is a warning sign that something is up with your kidney function. One of the prime function of the kidney is to keep your body balanced and deliver nutrients through proper regulation of water. If the kidney is not working right, fluid can accumulate in your tissues and you will notice swelling in ankles, feet, face, legs or hands.
  3. Urine: Afterall, producing urine is one of the main functions of the kidney, so it makes sense to pay attention to your urinary output. If you see the following changes in your urine, then it might signal a kidney problem
    1. Difficulty in urinating
    2. Blood in your urine
    3. Less frequent urination and darker output
    4. Increased urination and light-coloured output
    5. Foamy or bubbly urine
    6. Waking up during the night with urgent need to go, at times more than once
  4. Nausea: Without a proper outlet to disperse the toxins out of your body, your system may feel the need to expel them through other forms. You may feel nauseated or even vomit due to excessive toxin build-up in your system.
  5. Fatigue: Everyone has a day when they feel tired, but long-term fatigue is definitely not right. Tiredness or fatigue is produced by a lack of hormone called EPO or erythropoietin that stimulates the production of red blood cells. Stressed kidneys do not produce enough erythropoietin, thereby making you feel very tired.
  6. Itchy Rashes: When the garbage piles up in the system, it can result in itchy patches in your skin. Unlike normal rashes, these are deep and topical treatment will not help that much. At times they can also manifest as small red bumps.
  7. Anaemia: If kidneys do not produce enough red blood stimulating EPO, it can lead to anemia. Anemia can make you feel dizzy or winded out.
  8. Poor Appetite and Bad Taste in Mouth: The excessive build-up of toxins can cause a metallic taste in your mouth, producing bad breath. Your sense of taste can also fall because of this, leading to dull appetite.

It is always a good idea to heed early warning signs and prevent damage. So, pay attention to these signs and keep your renal system up.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

First of all the cause needs to be known for which you need to go for examination like urine routine and USG KUB. And revert back with the reports for the start up of the treatment. CAUSES OF HEMATURIA - Bladder or kidney stones. Certain kidney diseases, such as inflammation in the filtering system of the kidneys (glomerulonephritis) Enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia) or prostate cancer. Inherited diseases such as sickle cell anemia and cystic kidney disease, etc and more causes. So we need to diagnose the cause first. For more queries, contact us.

If the stone is causing pain by obstruction at the bile duct, If stone has caused deep jaundice or tests show Chronic inflammation of Inside lining A general surgeon may advise you removal . There may be stones but are not causing any problem like silent stones. They can be left alone. Repeated stone formation, repeated pain and repeated surgery is unlikely.

It would be better for him to take 2 urine tests one for RM and another for CS, also he could to a X-ray KUB and see a physician with the results to receive the proper treatment. This could be either due stone in the urinary bladder or it could be a Urinary tract infection or it could be due to other reason.
