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.

Use your time at home to graze regularly. Several small meals and snacks may seem more manageable than three large meals. Dried fruits, seeds, cheese and nut butter are nutritionally rich and calorie dense. Snack on a 1/4 cup of raisins for about 110 calories; spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on a medium banana and consume almost 300 calories; and have an ounce of cheddar cheese with just seven woven wheat crackers for 233 extra calories. Add one or all of these snacks daily to pile on a pound in a week.

1. Use amla (gooseberry) juice on scalp and also to drink. 2. Mix curry leaves with coconut oil and heat up and let it cool. Wheat Germ oil to massage your head at night. You can also put some fenugreek powder in the oil, heat the oil a bit and apply it on scalp for hairfall, whitening and dandruff. 3. Apply hair packs like Egg with Yogurt, Banana. 4. Have lots of green leafy vegetables and fruits rich in Vitamin C. 5. Protein is the most important element for maintaining hair health.

Hi I am having chstpain once in a couple of days and feel Like a breath problem at the time of eating but no cough once in a week also. Will it leaDs to asthma?

DAA, DNB
Pulmonologist, Bangalore
Hi. I understand your concerns. It may not be asthma. It could be acid reflux. You will need anti peptic and also try life style modifications like go for a walk after your food. Reduce weight. Use 2 pillows to sleep. Get a chest x ray done and consult a pulmonologist for the same. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.

Is body ache common in woman above 60 years? How can it be cured?

MBBS
General Physician,
Dear friend, body ache is indeed very common in ladies after they achieve menopause. The reason is primarily deficiency of calcium. It could be a lot of other factors, depending on the individual case like pre-existing medical conditions eg diabetes, hypertension etc. The good news is no lady needs to suffer from constant body ache, pain in the legs, backache and so on, because simple treatments are available.

I have a problem of premature ejaculation. Tried different exercises available online. Nothing helps.

I have a problem of premature ejaculation. Tried different exercises available online. Nothing helps.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. You must understand premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is diagnosed when you have premature ejaculation within one minute continuously with the same partner for over six months. Are you married? Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is a common problem which happens due to psychological stress and anxiety in majority of people. After confirming that these are not due to diabetics, hypertension or any other organic problems, for this reason, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil) or fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), are used to help delay ejaculation. If SSRIs don't improve the timing of your ejaculation, your doctor may prescribe the tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine (Anafranil). I don't see any requirement of medicines for you. I suggest online sex therapy. Take care.

Sir, I am suffering from tinnitus for last two years kindly give me a suggestion what I can do.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Although bothersome, tinnitus usually isn't a sign of something serious. Although it can worsen with age, for many people, tinnitus can improve with treatment. Treating an identified underlying cause sometimes helps. Other treatments reduce or mask the noise, making tinnitus less noticeable. For many people, certain adjustments make the symptoms less bothersome. These tips may help: Avoid possible irritants. Reduce your exposure to things that may make your tinnitus worse. Common examples include loud noises, caffeine and nicotine. Cover up the noise. In a quiet setting, a fan, soft music or low-volume radio static may help mask the noise from tinnitus. Manage stress. Stress can make tinnitus worse. Stress management, whether through relaxation therapy, biofeedback or exercise, may provide some relief. Reduce your alcohol consumption. Alcohol increases the force of your blood by dilating your blood vessels, causing greater blood flow, especially in the inner ear area.In many cases, tinnitus is the result of something that can't be prevented. However, some precautions can help prevent certain kinds of tinnitus. Use hearing protection. Over time, exposure to loud noise can damage the nerves in the ears, causing hearing loss and tinnitus. If you use chain saws, are a musician, work in an industry that uses loud machinery or use firearms (especially pistols or shotguns), always wear over-the-ear hearing protection. Turn down the volume. Long-term exposure to amplified music with no ear protection or listening to music at very high volume through headphones can cause hearing loss and tinnitus. Take care of your cardiovascular health. Regular exercise, eating right and taking other steps to keep your blood vessels healthy can help prevent tinnitus linked to blood vessel disorders.

I am 29 year old male and I suffer from uric acid problem. Can you tell me what is the right thing to do to avoid uric acid attacks?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine
Internal Medicine Specialist, Faridabad
Uric acid: normal values in the blood: men 3.5 to 7.0 mg/dl women 2.5 to 5.7 mg/dlwatch your weight. Try to lose weight slowly. Eat fresh fruit, vegetables, whole wheat products and some pulses (high in purine) every day. Enjoy low-fat milk and dairy products daily. Keep an eye on the purine content of food. Avoid offal, shellfish and crustaceans and tinned fish such as sardines in oil. Eat no more than 100g of meat, sausages, fish and poultry a day. Drink alcohol only occasionally, as it affects the elimination of uric acid. Eat low-fat food. The consumption of high-fat foods encourages weight gain. Drink at least two litres of low-calorie fluids a day. Recommended fluids are water, tea and fruit juice. To help with practical diet planning, it can help to gain advice from a qualified dietician. They will be able to clarify any questions you have and healthily and effectively reduce your values.

Recently my dad was diagnosed with diabetes with glucose level 262 mg/ dl. What are possible remedies.
1) have regular meals. Divide your meals into 5 to 6 times. 2) one teaspoon of methi seeds soaked overnight in 100 ml of water is very effective in controlling diabetes 3) good fats such as omega-3 and monounsaturated fats (mufa) should be consumed as they are good for the body. 4) diet should be high in fiber. Let whole grain cereals & flour, salad vegetables, green leafy vegetables & fruits be an integral part of your meals.

How survive the randomly nightfall conditions?

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Sexologist,
Nightfall is common and normal. Whenever the balloon containing semen is full, semen needs to come out by act of sex, masturbation or nightfall. It is not a disease, and does not cause physical problems and needs no treatment.
