The majority of cases of infertility due to ovulatory disorders may be prevented with dietary and lifestyle modifications. Although PCOS has no cure, it can be successfully managed to the point where you can conceive naturally and have a healthy baby. Regular exercise is also very beneficial for controlling PCOS and insulin resistance It’s also important to chart your cycles to see when you are ovulating. You may be ovulating later than the usual 14-16 day of the cycle. You need to take care of all these things for conceiving.

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 coz herbal medicines for removing stones can be given according to size and number and location of stones.

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.

Need urgent advice on small kidney stones, want to get rid of them without operation. Please reply in pain.
Kidney stones are formed from mineral deposits in the kidneys and even in the urinary bladder. Stones are usually made from minerals and acid salts .The most common cause of kidney stone formation is an increased concentration of minerals in the urine, due to less fluid intake. These minerals settle along the walls of the kidneys or the bladder and stick together to form kidney stones. Increasing your water or fluid intake in a day could help dilute the kidneys and the urinary bladder. It could also prevent the formation of small stones and may also help dissolve smaller stones so these may be passed safely out of the body via the urine. Increasing your fluid intake from 10 to12 glasses of water or fluids in a day could help as well as eating foods that have high water content. Foods like fruits, soups and teas are perfect beverages to choose. On the other hand, drinks like carbonated drinks, sodas and caffeinated drinks must be totally avoided. Homeopathy offers the best alternative non-surgical treatment for kidney stones.In the homeopathic system of medicine, one can easily remove the kidney stones naturally with simple homeopathic medicines. The advantage of homeopathy is that you can avoid surgery and it also cures the tendency of the body to form stones. This means that the chances of the stones being formed again are next to nil. Made of natural substances and completely safe with no side effects, Homeopathic medicines are given after taking note of unique individual symptoms. You can consult me online via Lybrate for further evaluation and homeopathic medicines. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

I am 25 years old girl. I am getting back and abdominal pain 5 days back I got ultrasound and I got to know I have 2mm & 3 stones in my left kidney. But I vomit everyday once in evening as in full day I try to stop vomit and have fruits like watermelon, orange and mosambi juice but then too that fluid also got out by vomiting. In sonography reports everything is ok it shows I have only pain in of kidney stones. Did blood test to c if I have dengue or malaria but everything is negative. As I am not able to have food I have got a lot more weakness. And get pain of kidney stone now and then I feel nausea and vertigo at time. I am trying to have as much liquid as I can as I showed my reports to doc he is like its the kidney stone pain only. But I had little chest pain too I was not getting whats the reason so I did ecg too and it was normal. But I am confused why the hell there is pain on heart side. Doc said it is bcoz of all nerves are joined so it is paining there too bcoz of kidney stone. And my full left side pains. I am prescribed for rabiul dsr tab for now as I am not able to eat properly but then too I feel for vomit everyday by night. So please tell me doc is this vomiting only bcoz of stone pain or anything else. N my hemoglobin is 10.03. & doc said its low but first he said I have to get cured from this kidney stone then he will prescribe me for 2 months which will increase my blood counts. & one more thing can ultrasound for kidney & pelvis can detect if I am pregnant because I am single and not married but I have doubt as my boyfriend touchdown my vagina once. He has not penetrated or did figuring. But after that incident I got my periods on time and it was not like spotting it was proper period as I usually get. But that 1 month was very stressful for me to go through. So just want to know can ultrasound detect embryo and stuff like that bcoz I know I have gt proper periods last month but in tension becoz I am stared vomiting the next month. & doc I am a virgin so please help me asap. I am just getting crazy over things but still in tension very much and yes I have never done intercourse or anything like that in life pure virgin. And please tell me that vomiting is becoz of something else or it just my kidney stone thing that is bothering me. I have done blood test, urine test, ultrasound sonography and ecg. Please I hope you will give me proper ans to my problem. Thank you doc. Waiting for reply.

Hello, as you got your menses after your sexual contact, and the ultrasound doesnt shoe any pregnancy at all, hence you are not pregnant for sure and the vomiting is possibly due to your regular renal pain due to stones which can for sure cause nausea and even dizziness episodes. As your most of the tests are negative, one possible reason could be lower oesophageal sphincter spasm but that would require manometry studies to rule out by a gastroenterologist. Regards.

1. Drink plenty of water (8-10glass) daily 2. Get your urine examined for re/me, culture and sensitivity test 3. Take a course of antibiotic for 7-10 days to avoid recurrence after consulting doctor with your urine report 4. Take one tablet of meftal spas ds after food for pain during urination 5. Avoid coffee/alcohol/spicy food which irritates bladder.

Plenty of oral liquids predominantly water goes a long way in preventing stone formation. Water intake on an average should be about 2 to 2.5 liters a day, distributed uniformly throughout the day. One should take a balanced diet avoiding excess of any food elements and try not skipping or avoiding any food. Fluid intake - adequate quantity, distributed uniformly throughout the day aim - to keep urine output at least 1.5 litres per day. Type - predominantly water, followed by barley water or yoghurt. - freshly squeezed oranges or lemons, juices made from the same, green tea and wine. - completely avoid soft drinks / aerated drinks. - avoid other fruit juices; instead eat fruits. Adequate consumption of fruit and vegetable. Avoid excess of or skipping of any dietary element. Adequately treat any urinary infection.

Prevention of renal stones depend on type of stone. Also there are various diseases and drugs that can predispose to stone formation. A usg, complete metabolic panel and urine cytology and ph check up is needed in young aged patients. To prevent oxalate stones thats very commonly found you need to restrict oxalate rich foods like: peanuts, rhubarb, spinach, beets, chocolate and sweet potatoes. To prevent uric acid stones, cut down on high-purine foods such as red meat, organ meats, and shellfish, and follow a healthy diet that contains mostly vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and low fat dairy products. Limit sugar-sweetened foods and drinks, especially those that contain high fructose corn syrup. Limit alcohol because it can increase uric acid levels in the blood and avoid crash diets for the same reason. Eating less animal-based protein and eating more fruits and vegetables will help decrease urine acidity and this will help reduce the chance for stone formation. Take plenty of water also.

Hi, welcome to lybrate. Com I am happy to answer your queries. In summer season, when the temperature is high, there will be increased sweating and increased water loss. So the amount of water to be excreted by kidneys will be low. So you need to drink more water drink upto 5 litres of water and you will have normal urine output hope you found the answer helpful. If you need any clarification / have doubts / have additional questions / have follow up questions, then please do not hesitate in asking again at lybrate. Com/bruno. I will be happy to answer your questions. Best wishes for speedy recovery let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

Why You May be at the Risk of Kidney Failure at an Early Age

MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Those two, small bean-shaped organs are indeed essential for a perfectly healthy life. To check if a person is dead or living, medical practitioners need to confirm response from three organs of the human body heart, brain and kidneys. Kidneys absorb impurities from the blood, thus, purifying it and lead to the production of urine. Urine is necessary to rid your system of body wastes. Kidneys play a key role in maintaining hormone balance. The presence of any factor that could impede free functioning of this organ should be diagnosed, treated and eliminated at the earliest possible. Kidney diseases and subsequent kidney failure see no age bar. It affects both young and old people. In case of younger folks, the symptoms take years to surface and thus the chances of a fatal outcome are even higher.

Causes of kidney failure at a tender age:

Chain smoking is a trigger: Smokers suffer from a higher risk of kidney failure. Smoking is a bad habit that has engulfed almost ninety percent of young adults. Irrespective of awareness programs and warning messages, there are millions who smoke nonchalantly. Smoking is known to impair kidney function which again can have frightening implications.
High blood pressure levels must be controlled: Since stress is a common phenomenon among most individuals high blood pressure is also prevalent among a majority of these individuals. Younger people suffer from high blood pressure due to workplace politics and familial tensions. High blood pressure should not be taken lightly. Exercising and regular medications should be opted for in order to counter the threat of kidney failure at a young age.
If you are obese, you are stepping closer to the threat: If not optimal; being close to the optimal body weight is very necessary to keep health disorders in check. If you are obese, you are not safe; one must make efforts to lose weight or else face the alarming situation when his or her kidneys fail to function properly.
Consumption of junk food can cause complications: Junk food is fatty. One must keep away from high-protein and high-fat diet. Food items rich in protein and fats can push you towards chronic kidney diseases.
Genetics may discern the health of your kidneys: The incidence of kidney failure in your family history can make you prone to a similar condition. Extra care should be taken to avoid any such possibility. Regular health check-ups should be undertaken.
