There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

Both your friend and his wife will have to go for check up and get treated at the same time. Some times it's better to get blood and urine tests (some times culture tests) frequently if there is persistent complaints of infection. Basic health and hygiene should also be followed as a routine. Follow up afterwards if required.

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 3mm 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 3mm then you should surely go for surgery.

Always evacuate your bladder before going to sleep. Drink less water after evening hours. Do Kegel Exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. Tell your mind consciously before going to sleep that 'You are not going to leak tonight". It helps in reinforcing your subconscious willpower during sleep to stop this.

Three days back I had stomach problem . My stomach seems full n had no appetite . I used to spend few minutes in toilet. Guess I was having constipation and now I want to urinate frequently and feels like my bladder is depositing liquid soon. I actually have a bad habit of drinking less water some around only one and half and sometimes not even that. I'm worried if I would have any renal or bladder infection. Also I recently started doing kegel. Please help me out.

Does the patient in Gilbert's syndrome bilirubin increases due to any infection in body.

General Physician,
Does the patient in Gilbert's syndrome bilirubin increases due to any infection in body.
Some people with Gilbert's syndrome become mildly jaundiced from time to time. This may seem alarming, but is of little concern if the cause is Gilbert's syndrome. The jaundice tends to occur most commonly if you are ill with another problem such as: An infection. Starvation. Repeatedly being sick (vomiting). Following surgery. During times of exertion or stress. If you have Gilbert's syndrome there are some medicines which you should avoid if alternatives are available.

You may reduce your risk of kidney stones if you: drink water throughout the day. For people with a history of kidney stones, drink 12-14 glasses of water everyday. If you live in a hot, dry climate or you exercise frequently, you may need to drink even more water to produce enough urine. If your urine is light and clear, you're likely drinking enough water. 1 eat fewer oxalate-rich foods. If you tend to form calcium oxalate stones, restrict foods rich in oxalates. These include rhubarb, beets, bhindi (okra), spinach, swiss chard, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate and soy products. Choose a diet low in salt and animal protein. Reduce the amount of salt you eat and choose non animal protein sources, such as legumes. Consider using a salt substitute. Continue eating calcium-rich foods, but use caution with calcium supplements. Calcium in food doesn't have an effect on your risk of kidney stones. Continue eating calcium-rich foods unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ask your doctor before taking calcium supplements, as these have been linked to increased risk of kidney stones. You may reduce the risk by taking supplements with meals. Diets low in calcium can increase kidney stone formation in some people. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine - berberis vulgaris q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Revert.

Dear firstly rule out diabetes, by checking fasting blood sugar which should be below 120 mg. Between 120 to 126 you are on border line and should take precautions same as diabetes. If fasting blood sugar is below 120 then 1. Keep area of itching dry. 2. Apply starch base powder three four times day 3. Refrain from scratching as far as possible. 4. If these measures do not help i'm afraid you will have to consult dermatologist or physician.

How can i find stones in kidney
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.

Can you please share your ultrasound report. The location of the stone and the amount of obstruction causing hydronephrosis will be a determining factor.

Add semi solids and solids like dal roti khichadi kheer etc well cooked in oil or ghee in her diet. If she is taking milk in small quantity, increase frequency. Do not force. Passing urine many time may be due to excess water intake which contribute to taking less diet too.

Darkening of urine has various reasons to blame. To know the exact reasons do a routine urine examination and urine microscopy. Unless you have fever too, urinary infection is less likely.
