There is very little urine pass (below 400 millilitre per day) since past two days. I had 4 alcoholic drinks two days ago. I am suffering from dehydration? While I had 6 glasses of water in the morning, does this low urine output mean that my body is still in dehydration mode despite consuming 6 glass of water. Do I shift to intake of electrolytes?

Frequent Urination - Can it be a Sign of Kidney Disease?

DNB (Nephrology), MD, MBBS
Nephrologist, Delhi
Frequent Urination - Can it be a Sign of Kidney Disease?

Polycystic kidney disease is a disorder that is inherited; it is characterized by development of cysts in the kidneys. These cysts are round sacs that contain a water like fluid. Initially, the size of the cysts are small, they tend to increase in size after the fluid accumulation. This disorder can also cause cysts to develop in the liver and other parts of the body.

Symptoms and Complications
The most common symptoms of this disorder are back pain, headache, high blood pressure and kidney failure. It can also lead to formation of stones in the kidney, presence of blood in the urine and an urge to urinate frequently. It also make your kidney prone to various bacterial infections.

Causes
The disease is caused because of the presence of defective genes in the body, implying that this disorder is primarily hereditary. In some cases, the disease is caused by a genetic mutation. Based on the causes, it is classified into two types:

  1. Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease: This disorder causes the symptoms to appear immediately after birth, although the symptoms are delayed until adolescence. This disorder only occurs when both the parents carry the defective gene which is passed to the offspring.
  2. Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease: This disorder usually tends to occur only after the age of 30. Unlike the previous type, here only one parent needs to carry the defective gene that is passed on to the offspring.

Treatment
The treatment of polycystic kidney disease generally involves dealing with the following signs:

  1. Pain: Chronic pain, usually in the sides of the body or the back, is a common symptom of this disorder. You can opt for pain reliving medication such as ibuprofen. If the cysts are large, then surgery is required to ease the pain.
  2. High blood pressure: High blood pressure is best controlled by a following a healthy diet and lifestyle. High blood pressure can damage the kidneys severely. Medications may also be required to control blood pressure, if it rises abnormally.

There are no medical tips for correct procedure for urination by girls. The only thing to be observed or be careful about is to prevent contamination and infection of urethra by pot or by anal bacteria while washing. Female urethra is small and more vulnerable to UTIs as compared to males. It is always advisable to pause for a moment while commencing to urinate but doing it in pauses is not advisable. Do it slowly with control as fast urination may cause injury to urethra. Never hold urine for very long times. Do regular pelvic exercises to prevent incontinence in old age.

Lybrate-user, I understand that you are having pain in lower abdomen, lower back and probably cramps. I did not understand the word" dpo" certain short forms are unclear, better to write in full words. You are thyroxine 125 mcg a day. But you have not mentioned about current or latest tsh levels. Many a times if hypothyroidism is not under control (tsh between 3 to 4 mu/l), various symptoms can keep occurring. Apart from taking prescribed medicine you have to also exercise for 1 hour a day and follow dietary restrictions. It will be better if all the information is given, and you come in a private conversation, then I will be able to guide. Thanks.

My mom has got kidney stones. What should be the treatment for that? Please advise.
what are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) registered dietitian who will also prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Hello, This is a urinary tract infection and you should get a urine culture done to isolate the organism and then you may require a curse of antibiotics. In the meantime you may increase your water intake.

Dear , it is because you are passing stale urine which has stayed in bladder for long time so increase your fluid intake till it is watery white. The same thing can happen if you are on any drug therapy.

Follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in your lifestyle are also necessary.

Hi lybrate-user. Thanku for writing into lybrate. Women may be especially prone to utis because they have shorter urethras, which allow bacteria quick access to the bladder. Symptoms:- 1. A burning feeling when you urinate 2. A frequent or intense urge to urinate, even though little comes out when you do 3. Pain or pressure in your back or lower abdomen 4. Cloudy, dark, bloody, or strange-smelling urine 5. Feeling tired or shaky 6. Fever or chills (a sign the infection may have reached your kidneys) medications:- 1. Neeri syrup-10 ml with warm water. 2. Tab gokshuradi guggulu-2 tab daily thrice. 3. Tab c. P. Vati-2 tab daily twice. Tips:- 1. Empty your bladder frequently as soon as you feel the need to go; don't rush, and be sure you've emptied your bladder completely. 2. Wipe from front to back. 3. Drink lots of water. 4. Choose showers over baths. 5. Stay away from feminine hygiene sprays, scented douches, and scented bath products -- they'll only increase irritation. 6. Cleanse your genital area before sex. 7. Urinate after sex to flush away any bacteria that may have entered your urethra. 8. If you use a diaphragm, unlubricated condoms, or spermicidal jelly for birth control, consider switching to another method. Diaphragms can increase bacteria growth, while unlubricated condoms and spermicides can cause irritation. All can make uti symptoms more likely. 9. Keep your genital area dry by wearing cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothes. Avoid tight jeans and nylon underwear -- they can trap moisture, creating the perfect environment for bacteria growth.

Hi This is perfectly normal and natural. Frequency and quantity of urine is directly related to the amount of fluid consumed by a person. If you have some symptoms like burning or painful urination then its a matter of concern otherwise just dont worry and enjoy life.

Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.
