I have kidney stones size of 7 mm right sideband 9mm left side. This problem solved by medicine of need oprat.

MBBS
General Physician,
I have kidney stones size of 7 mm right sideband 9mm left side. This problem solved by medicine of need oprat.
9 mm stone doesn't totally go away generally by medications. But you can try having medicines for a month or two and get a repeat usg done after that. If they dsnt shrink in that period you ll need surgical approach. Main problem is while you wait they might dislodge after breaking into pieces and cause pain by lodging into ureter. If such episode of severe pain occurs visit a nearby hospital soon. For now start treatment soon after visting a nephro or urologist. Change your diet. Have lots of water and fruits. Avoid high protein foods.

My father have kidney failure he do dialysis weekly 2 times. How can we cure!

DNB (Radiodiagnosis), DMRD, MBBS
Radiologist,
Hi, thanks for writing in to us. It is important to know the cause of renal problems in your father. There are many reasons for which a patient has to take dialysis including high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune diseases, infections and urinary obstruction associated. The idea of dialysis is to reduce the serum creatinine level and this is a maintenance remedy. It is not known if your father is eligible for a kidney transplant as every patient might not benefit from it. If he is able to reduce the creatinine by dialysis then the dialysis frequency might be reduced. Regards,

Should get urine tested for infection and start on antibiotic. The urine should be sent for culture and sensitivity test also. It may take 2 days to get the report. After the report, the same antibiotic may be continued or changed to another one based on the report. In the meanwhile, take plenty of fluids - water, juices, rasam, buttermilk, tender coconut water, etc. To wash out the infection.

I am 42 years old and for the past two year I noticed there is a pungent smell in my urine. I had done blood test (thyrocare arogram 1.3) and urine routine checkup but can't find any problem except my spgt value of blood is 72 (max limit 70 unite). My sugar is also normal. I used to take alcohol 3 peg - twice a week. Please let me know your opinion about the probable reason?

Natural remedies and diet to be followed for passing out kidney stone and tube stones.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Natural remedies and diet to be followed for passing out kidney stone and tube stones.
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.

Hello lybrate-user. As per your problem. You first get your urine routine investigation done. N revert back. It may b due to infection. You can drink decoction made by water n flaxseed. Boil water n add 2 tablespoon of flaxseeds in it. Allow it to cool down n then have 1 glass of it in the interval of 30 mins. You can take internal medicine too but only after your reports. So get back to me.

Call now and get homeopathic remedy. Headache will become very less frequent within a week. Eye strain, poor diet, bad posture, frequent eating junk food, less water intake are common causes for headache in young. If it persists inspite of lifestyle changes, get cat scan.
