I've renal stones. How to solve the problem in a natural way?

Urologist,
I've renal stones. How to solve the problem in a natural way?
Hello and welcome to lybrate. Renal stones form due to various causes. In some, it occurs once only. In some it recurs, and they're called stone formers. They need to undergo some tests to find out the reason for recurrence. Blood and urine tests are carried out. The most important thing to remember is, to drink 12-15 glasses of liquids daily and to avoid dairy products, except occasional intake.

You do not need any antibiotics. Repeat the urine test, if that still shows same findings then you should consult a Nephrologist. Also get kft & ultrasound for kub done.

You should tell us whether the sperm like substance comes before or after passing urine. If afterwards then you will just have to dry yourself well before prayers.

White odorous particles are a normal phenomena. This is called smegma. It will get deposited if the penile head is not cleaned for a few days. So please clean with soap water daily. This will prevent cancerous grown of penis in future. The urgency. Dribbling of urine is typically due to prostatic growth. Commonly benign prostatic hypertrophy. (bph). You need to do certain tests as below 1. Blood for cbc. Esr. Fbs. Psa urine. Routine exam. Ultrasonography of prostate once the diagnosis is confirmed treatment plan can be made. Best will be to consult a urologist.

Diet Tips After You Get Your Kidney Stones Removed

Diet Tips After You Get Your Kidney Stones Removed

Kidney stones could be a cause for worry by the time they are not removed causing incessant and regular pains and disrupting normal life. The task is not finished even if you get them removed because what follows is a rigorous and disciplined routine that you must follow to maintain your health after the surgery is done. Diet plays a crucial role in negating the possibility of yet another stone accumulation. Here are a few diet tips that would be handy if you have got a kidney stones removal surgery done. 
 
Do's

  1. To stay hydrated is the golden rule that you must abide by at all costs. It is advisable to drink at least 2-3 litres of water on a daily basis. Water prevents the formation of stones and would also help to eliminate any remaining residues of kidney stones existing in the system.
  2. Dairy products could be included but in diluted form. 
  3. A fixed dietary routine is mandatory above all. The patient should be given meals at proper time intervals in small proportions. Heavy meals should be avoided at all costs. 
  4. Foods rich in high fibre should be included in the diet. They help in bowel movement also. These include whole grain breads and beans. 

Don'ts
 1. Foods rich in oxalates and calcium should be kept at bay for at least a period of two months after the stone removal procedure is complete. Oxalates can lead to the formation of yet another stone which is far from desirable. The foods that fall in this category include:

  • Green leafy vegetables like spinach, mustard and beet greens
  • Cabbage, cauliflower, tomatoes
  • Banana, mango, apricot, grapes
  • Nuts like almond and cashew
  • Alcohol
  • Soft drinks
  • Soda
  • Caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee 

2. Foods rich in sodium should be kept at bay for at least some time immediately after the surgery. 
 
3. Reducing the food intake that is high on animal protein. 
 
4. Do not eat stale food. 

5. Junk food should not even cross your mind. It is something which should be avoided for best results. 
 
These are generic guidelines that would help you to cope with post surgery care. However, there could be specific requirements depending from patient to patient. Therefore, it is advisable to get the guidelines by a doctor who will take into account the specificities of the case. Diet along with exercise is in most cases, the most effective combat to kidney stones. The trick however, is to not go overboard with either of them.

I am a diabetic patient and I have also a 16mm kidney stone. What are the reasons of kidney stone. Please tell me?

I am a diabetic patient and I have also a 16mm kidney stone. What are the reasons of kidney stone. Please tell me?
Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form. Types of kidney stones Knowing the type of kidney stone helps determine the cause and may give clues on how to reduce your risk of getting more kidney stones. Types of kidney stones include: Calcium stones. Most kidney stones are calcium stones, usually in the form of calcium oxalate. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in food. Some fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and chocolate, have high oxalate levels. Your liver also produces oxalate. Dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can increase the concentration of calcium or oxalate in urine. Calcium stones may also occur in the form of calcium phosphate. Struvite stones. Struvite stones form in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow quickly and become quite large, sometimes with few symptoms or little warning. Uric acid stones. Uric acid stones can form in people who don't drink enough fluids or who lose too much fluid, those who eat a high-protein diet, and those who have gout. Certain genetic factors also may increase your risk of uric acid stones. Cystine stones. These stones form in people with a hereditary disorder that causes the kidneys to excrete too much of certain amino acids (cystinuria). Other stones. Other, rarer types of kidney stones also can occur.
