There are many normal or abnormal causes of dark yellow urine. Commonest is insufficient water intake, hot weather or sweating etc. Hence you should take about 3 litres of water daily in summer conditions. Urine infection, jaundice etc may be some causes. But there will be associated complaints hence you should see your doctor for proper clinical examination, related investigations of urine for any abnormalities and proper diagnosis.

Hello- kidney stone recurrence can be nullified by improving your digestion and avoiding certain risk factors mentioned below- a) excess of non-vegetarian diet, green leafy vegetables, cashew nut, pista, fast foods and fermented diet. B) less intake of drinking water/ intake of still water (water inside the refrigerator). C) excess of sports activities esp done in summer season. D) late night waking up generally after 10 pm. C) less intake of sweets and dairy products in diet. D) not practicing yoga in early morning. Avoid these things and kidney stone will not bother you in future.

You are probably having BHP. It's better to get operated on as early as possible. Otherwise, the older you get ,more chances of complications will be there. Sooner the better. All the best.

Dear send your reports it can be removed through herbal medicines. revert me back b/w TRY the 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.

Sandalwood paste is a very good natural ingredient that is an answer to your question on how to get rid of blood blisters very quickly. All you need to do is to use good quality sandalwood powder and mix it with rose water to make a thick smooth paste. Now, apply this paste to the affected area and allow the mixture to dry on the blister. Once, it gets dried, you can rinse the affected area with cold water. You need to repeat this process three to four times a day to reduce the pain and the inflammation.

Dear lybrate user, a kidney stone is mainly formed due to the accumulation of the minerals present in urine. Such accumulation occurs mainly due to low intake of fluids. Continuous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. Formation of stone leads to pain along the kidney region. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3 mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But if the size of the stone is more than 3 mm then you should surely go for surgery.

Hi Dr. I am a mother of an one years old child who does not breast feed. For the last two days I am having severe gas acidity problems included with indigestion problems. Also my urine is dark yellow from yesterday. I am fearing that I might have jaundice. I had jaundice earlier also in the years 1997 and 1999. I want to ask if jaundice is contagious. I know it is a water borne disease but still I am worried about my child and hence not going near her. Please suggest .
