Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. B. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. C. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. D. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. E. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients.

You should look for a condition Renal Artery Stenosis, by doing Doppler study. No direct relation to ectopic kidney and BP if the function is normal and there is no reflux. BP medicine will continue for long, possibly life.

It is due to urinary tract infection. Ask her to drink lots of water. Keep herself hydrated. Avoid spicy food. If still problem remains consult for medication.

Hello lybrate-user the question is incomplete as he did not mentioned about his metabolism and how the strength got lowering. He is married or bachelor. Erectile dysfunction is only due to excessive indulgence in sex or due to excessive masturbation. I would like to suggest to stop masturbating now if you have or not to indulge in sex extremely. You may follow some regular routines of getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours as well as yoga and exercise every day and morning walk every day before sunrises. You may use light diets and soups of carrots and beetroots and green vegetables and moong daal soups fried with cumin seeds and ghee and garlic. Warm milk boiled with ginger, haldi and nuts every day before going to bed and at breakfast. Avoid oily or junk food stuff, sour products e. G. Pickles etc and yogurt. Try to use rich proteins and nourishing diets.

The frequent urination may be due to urinary tract infection. Please ask your mother to drink more water and fruit juice which helps clear away the bacteria from the tract. Also get an urine r/e m/e done and share the reports with me so that I can help you with medications.

I am 39years old male. Having kidney stone problem regularly. What's the best remedy to not have kidney stone.
You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones.

lybrate-user ji, Kidney ke stones hamesha ke liye khatam hone ke chances na ke barabar hote hain. Parantu. Baar-baar na hon ya hon to chhote hon, aisa hone ke chances badh sakte hain. 1) Bahut saara paani peejiye. Rozaana. 2) Kuch dawaiyan bhi le aakte hain. Dawaiyon ke results achchhe aate hain. All the best!

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.

The best ayurveda herb for your case is 1. Take 1 cup of horse gram 2. Add ½ L water 3. Heat the mixture till water level reduces to 1/5th 4. Strain and collect the soup 5. Add 2 tsp of crushed pomegranate 6. Mix well 7. Drink once a day Causes: • Crystallisation of chemicals and minerals present in urine leads to kidney stones surely you will get results.

Hi Kindly explain me d causes symptoms n treatment of kidney failure as I am a diabetic n under insulin control.
There won't be any symptoms till the last stage of kidney failure. Please don't depend upon symptoms to detect kidney failure in early stages. You must get urine protein levels and blood creatinine levels at least once a year and show to your doctor.
