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.

HI, It may be due to drinking excess water before going to bed or urinary infection or very rarely juvenile diabetes if there is a positive history of diabetes in the family. Do a routine urine examination and revert back with the reports.

Three days back I had stomach problem . My stomach seems full n had no appetite . I used to spend few minutes in toilet. Guess I was having constipation and now I want to urinate frequently and feels like my bladder is depositing liquid soon. I actually have a bad habit of drinking less water some around only one and half and sometimes not even that. I'm worried if I would have any renal or bladder infection. Also I recently started doing kegel. Please help me out.

Your weigh may be the problem. You should be around 65 kgs. Try to reduce your weight. If your job is to stand for long time. Follow few tips. * take breaks frequently. *place one foot on a small stool or raised area and alternate with other foot every 20 to 30 minutes gap. If your job is in sitting. Follow this tip. *lie at your back - fill the gap under your lower back so that your lower back rests fully on ground - then raise both your legs (without bending knees) just 5 degrees from ground - repeat it for 5 to 10 counts. Important notice -should not be done by holding breath.

Hi lybrate-user it is better that you consult your nephrologist who is treating you for kidney problem. In case you want homoeopathic treatment for fever then consult to me through Lybrate. And another thing 99 degree is not considered to be fever. In evening the normal body temperature can rise upto 99.5.

Hello, if your having pain the stone may be getting out. 4 mm stone will pass out with urineeasily. Drink more water on empty stomach. If possible drink sugarcane juice on empty stomach. Takee 3 spoon cow ghee before meal. This will help of great. Do skipping for at leaast 5 -10 min. Don't ever control urge of urination ever.

Normally urine does not have presence of albumin which is an important body protein and not allowed by kidney membrane to pass through it. In some acute infections especially of kidney, the membrane cannot hold it and it is seen in urine in small quantities. Even without infections, during some toxic manifestations also, like in toxaemia of pregnancy this may be seen. If there is no damage to kidney membrane, this stops after some period but consistent presence of albumin in urine is an important sign of glomerular membrane pathology. If you are having swelling on your feet and legs, puffiness of face, then go for some more checks like total serum proteins, albumin globulin ratio, urea and creatinine levels, etc. It is better to consult a qualified physician.

Dear lybrate user, a kidney stone is mainly formed due to the accumulation of the minerals present in urine. Such accumulation occurs mainly due to low intake of fluids. Continous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But if the size of the stone is more than 3mm then you should surely go for surgery.
