I have stone 4 mm in my right kidney and cystitis please tell me home remedy for cystitis.
Kidney stones are a very common health problem. They form from the chemicals in urine, such as uric acid, phosphorous, calcium and oxalic acid. Other common causes of kidney stones are excessive consumption of vitamin D, a mineral imbalance, dehydration, gout and an improper diet Irrespective of the size of the kidney stones, they can cause severe pain. Other symptoms include a desire to urinate frequently, painful urination, nausea, vomiting and excessive sweating. Pomegranate Both the seeds and juice of pomegranates have astringent properties that can help in the treatment of kidney stones. ? Try to eat one whole pomegranate or drink one glass of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice daily. You can mix pomegranate in a fruit salad also. Another option is to grind one tablespoon of pomegranate seeds into a fine paste. Eat this paste along with a cup of horse gram soup once daily. This remedy will help dissolve the stones. Being high in fiber, kidney beans can be effective in the treatment of any kind of kidney or bladder problem, including kidney stones. ? Remove the beans from inside the pods, then put the beans in hot water. Simmer the water on low flame for hours until the beans become soft and tender. Strain the liquid and allow it to cool. Strain the liquid again. Drink it several times throughout the day to relieve kidney stone pain. This liquid should not be kept for more than 24 hours, as it will lose its therapeutic properties. ? You can also eat kidney beans in soup or salad. To conclude, you can try any of these natural remedies for treating kidney stones Ayurvedic medicenes are neeri syrup and calcury syrup and vrikkadoshahara vati for more querries inform me?

The urethra may be widened (dilated) during cystoscopy. Numbing medicine will be applied to the area before the procedure. A thin instrument is inserted into the urethra to stretch it. You may be able to treat your stricture by learning to dilate the urethra at home. If urethral dilation cannot correct the condition, you may need surgery. Surgical options depend on the location and length of the stricture. If the narrowed area is short and not near the muscles that control the exit from the bladder, the stricture may be cut or dilated. An open urethroplasty may be done for longer strictures. This surgery involves removing the diseased area. The urethra is then rebuilt. The results vary, depending on the size and location of the stricture, the number of treatments you have had, and the surgeon's experience. Alternatively you can consider taking homoeopathic medicines after giving detail history only which can surely provide relief

Homeopathy: How Work in Chronic Kidney Disorder

Homeopath,
Homeopathy: How Work in Chronic Kidney Disorder

Chronic Kidney Disorder Homeopathic Treatment


Homoeopathic treatment:

Homeopathy does not identify kidneys as a simple organ of excretion or selective filtration, but appreciates it in relation to the individual as a whole. Kidneys have a comprehensive role, the fluids coming to it and going from it impinge on every organ, tissue and cell of our body. Homeopathy plays a significant role in long term management at all stages and variants of nephrotic syndrome. The basic approach in homeopathy is to evaluate nephrotic syndrome in its totality, whereby a lot of highlight is given to the patient as a whole besides thoroughly studying various aspects of the disorder. Homeopathic remedies help arrest further progress of the disease and assist in recuperating faster, reduce and eventually stop the need for steroids, reduce duration, frequency and severity of the attacks by regulating the autoimmune processes. The remedies manage the protein leakage, by amending the glomerular function of the kidney. Remedies also uplift the body’s own healing capacity, whereby precluding the frequent infections such as colds, throat infections, etc.

Homeopathic remedies when taken in the preliminary stage of nephrotic syndrome can prevent complications like renal failure, consequently, limiting the option for dialysis in instances, where kidney damage has advanced, homeopathy discourages further progression of the syndrome, and will contribute in reducing the frequency of dialysis, or at times, even eliminate the need for dialysis. Homeopathic approach focuses on a detailed case study, which involves the medical history of the patient, underlying pathology, mental, emotional and spiritual aspect of the patient, family history, personal history, possible causative factors, and much more. The homeopathic focus is not on treating the disease but in healing the person who is sick and in reviving the health. Homeopathic remedies will help enhance the quality of life, by strengthening the immune system of the patient, thus, making them less susceptible to infections.

Hence, homeopathy can skillfully manage symptoms related with nephrotic syndrome. With well-timed homeopathic treatment it may be possible to avoid steroid dependency and kidney failure


Kidneys are two bean shaped organs, positioned at the focal point of our back, on either side of the spinal column, underneath the rib cage. Kidneys work as sophisticated recycling devices, separating urea, mineral salts, toxins and other waste products from the blood. They safeguard water, salts and electrolytes that are essential for the operation of other organs and systems in the body. Kidneys also produce hormones that control red blood cell production, blood pressure and calcium metabolism. Kidneys perform a life sustaining job for the body by maintaining a stable balance of body chemicals. Any malfunctioning in this balance leads to kidney disorders, one of which is nephrotic syndrome (chronic renal disease). Nephrotic syndrome (chronic renal disease) is a forewarning that your kidneys are being damaged.

Nephrotic syndrome (kidney failure) is a multifaceted immunological disorder where there is unusual leakage of protein, prompting low levels of proteins and high levels of fat in blood and swelling of body parts. Nephrotic syndrome is an outcome of damage to the small blood vessels in the kidneys known as glomeruli that strains wastes and surplus water from the blood, and passes it on to the bladder as urine. When the glomeruli are operational, they uphold protein in the blood and avoid leakage into the urine. When damaged, they not execute this role successfully, and 3 grams or more of the protein can escape daily out of the blood. When blood is low in protein, fluid accumulates in tissues rather than circulating, causing puffiness all over the body. Normal amounts of blood protein are essential to help control fluid throughout the body.

Symptoms:

Swelling on the face, around eyes, ankles and feet.
Stomach pain.
Low urine output.
Excessive protein excretion in the urine.
Weight gain from fluid retention.
Muscle wasting.
Loss of appetite.
Frothy urine.
Shortness of breath.
Low or high blood pressure depending on age.
Nutritional deficiencies.
Stunted growth in children.
Hair loss.
Delicate nails.
Blood clotting inside the kidney or excessive bleeding.
Kidney failure.
Shock.
Kidney failure symptoms like sleepless vomiting weight loss bad breadth sore mouth weakness increased urination.

 

Causes of nephrotic syndrome:

Minimal change disease in children, a kidney disorder triggered by an allergic reaction, viral infection, immunization, etc.
Membranous glomerulonephritis, an inflammation in the kidney.
Strep throat.
Pre-eclampsia, toxemia during pregnancy.
Mononucleosis, an infection caused by epstein barr virus.
Hepatitis, a contagious disease of the liver.
Overuse of non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, substance abuse, etc.
Genetic disorders like down’s syndrome, hemophilia, cancers, celiac disease, etc.
Immune disorders like allergies, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
Systemic lupus erythematosus, an autoimmune disorder that affects the skin, joints, kidneys and other organs.
Multiple myelomas, cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow.
Amyloidosis, a disorder in which protein fibers are deposited in tissues and organs.
Segmental glomerulosclerosis, scarring of the tiny blood vessels in the kidney.
Heart failure.

Kidney failure heart failure oedema na k imbalance in serum.

 

Self care measure:

Eat enough protein, to replace the protein loss in the urine. However, excessive protein should be avoided, as filtering of surplus protein can cause tubular damage to the kidneys.
Reduce sodium intake to ease the swelling.
Avoid fatty foods.
Avoid caffeine, smoking and alcohol.
Monitor your fluid intake.
Eat more fruits and vegetables.
Garlic, ginger and parsley are strengthening herbs for the kidney.
Self care measure of kidney disease.

It indicates concentrated urine, increase your fluid intake to 2 -3 litres per day. And if you are having decreased appetite and yellow eyes in addition to yellow urine then get your liver function test done to rule out jaundice.

Hi, prevention of kidney stones may include a combination of lifestyle changes and medications. Lifestyle changes you may reduce your risk of kidney stones if you: drink water throughout the day. For people with a history of kidney stones, drink 12-14 glasses of water everyday. If you live in a hot, dry climate or you exercise frequently, you may need to drink even more water to produce enough urine. If your urine is light and clear, you're likely drinking enough water. 1 eat fewer oxalate-rich foods. If you tend to form calcium oxalate stones, restrict foods rich in oxalates. These include rhubarb, beets, bhindi (okra), spinach, swiss chard, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate and soy products. Choose a diet low in salt and animal protein. Reduce the amount of salt you eat and choose non animal protein sources, such as legumes. Consider using a salt substitute. Continue eating calcium-rich foods, but use caution with calcium supplements. Calcium in food doesn't have an effect on your risk of kidney stones. Continue eating calcium-rich foods unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ask your doctor before taking calcium supplements, as these have been linked to increased risk of kidney stones. You may reduce the risk by taking supplements with meals. Diets low in calcium can increase kidney stone formation in some people. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine - berberis vulgaris q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Revert me back.

Hi lybrate-user. If in case you have multiple kidney stones more than 10 mm in size there is less likelihood that they will pass off on their own with any medicine. You will have to get properly investigated and get the stones removed. In long term stones slowly damage kidney. Thanks.

Hello lybrate-user, you seem to be suffering from irritable bowel syndrome if your sugars are normal. You need to make a timetable for eating and going to toilet and for urination too. You need to keep 2-3 hrs gap between eating and you should not eat too much. You should only eat till your stomach feels little full. And include fruit salads or vegetable salads in between breakfast and lunch and between lunch and dinner. You need to eat very slowly, after chewing food properly. You can control toilet and urine. So wait till it becomes very urgent and then only visit washroom. And do let me know after 1 week how r you feeling.

Hi, the best treatment for a 22 mm stone is complete removal through a keyhole. This surgery is called mini- pcnl (percutaneous nephrolithotomy). Laparoscopy is not preferred for kidney stones, except in rare situations. Currently ct urography is the preferred imaging test before stone removal. Ivp is an older and limited imaging option. It is to be done only in places where ct is not available.
