My mother have kidney infection from the past 2 years and the creatinine level is now 5.5. I want to know how to reduce this. On home by diet and other daily routine.

MBBS
Nephrologist, Kolkata
The condition you are describing is very grave and the creatinine level also suggests date. For further advice I will need to know her full medical history with her symptoms and will have to see her reports of blood and urine analysis n usg. I can surely suggest you the best possible way of treatment.

Please depend on urine pus cells to conclude infection. In your case pus cell count in urine don't indicate anything. You may have to do culture test to conclude. You may also unnecessarily take medications. There is no hard and fast rule for water volume. One way to calculate is to measure urine. You must produce about 1200 to 1500 ml in 24 hours. Measure urine once in 15 days. If you send me your medications. I can help.

Hello lybrate-user. As per your problem. You first get your urine routine investigation done. N revert back. It may b due to infection. You can drink decoction made by water n flaxseed. Boil water n add 2 tablespoon of flaxseeds in it. Allow it to cool down n then have 1 glass of it in the interval of 30 mins. You can take internal medicine too but only after your reports. So get back to me.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if diabetes is detected, then appropriate treatment should be initiated, so that blood glucose is kept under strict control. To achieve good control fasting glucose should be 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg/100 ml and hba1c% <6.8. If these levels are maintained all the symptoms will disappear and patient feel fit and healthy. Apart from drugs, there has to be a restricted diet and regular exercise for 1 hour a day. That will help in achieving a better blod glucose control. Thanks.

Do thyroid in male age 25 causes frequent urination and what are the symptoms, natural remedies.
Mr. Lybrate-user, usually hypothyroidism does not increase urination. This symptom is more often seen when there is urinary tract infection or a person has diabetes. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are: weight gain, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold, swelling of face and lower limbs, early fatigue, constant tired feeling, sleepy feeling, joint pains, dry skin, dry hair and hair fall, anxiety, depression, in females menstrual irregularities, excess flow, difficulty in conception. There are no natural remedies. Only treatment option is to supplement thyroxine hormone as this is a deficiency disorder. Thanks.

Urinary tract infections in adults - Prevention


Not all urinary tract infections (UTIs) can be prevented, but there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing an infection.


Cranberry juice and capsules
Drinking cranberry juice may help prevent UTIs. If you have had recurring UTIs, higher-strength cranberry capsules are recommended. These are available from most pharmacists and supermarkets.

Don't drink cranberry juice or take cranberry capsules if you are taking warfarin (a medicine used to prevent blood clots).

Treat constipation promptly
Constipation can increase your chances of developing a UTI. Recommended treatments for constipation include:
increasing the amount of fibre in your diet (20g to 30g of fibre a day)

using a mild laxative on a short-term basis
drinking plenty of fluids

See your GP if your symptoms don't improve or if your child is constipated.

Diaphragms and condoms

If you're a woman, using a diaphragm for contraception can increase the risk of getting a UTI. This is because the diaphragm may press on your bladder and prevent it emptying completely when you urinate.

If you use a diaphragm and have recurring UTIs, you might want to consider changing to another method of contraception. There are 15 different methods of contraception to choose from.
If you get recurring UTIs and you use condoms, try using condoms that don't have a spermicidal lubricant on them – it will say whether it does on the packet.

Spermicidal lubricant can cause irritation and make it more likely that you'll get a UTI. There are lots of condoms that have non-spermicidal lubricant, so use these instead.
Other useful advice
The following advice may be useful in helping you keep your bladder and urethra free from bacteria:

drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and help clear bacteria from the urinary tract
go to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to urinate, rather than holding it in
wipe from front to back after going to the toilet
practise good hygiene by washing your genitals every day, and before having sex.
empty your bladder after having sex

Take 11 guava leaves, 11 black pepper, 1 cup milk and one cup water. Put all of them in pot and boil it well, when it reduced to one cup, drink in empty stomach. Take this daily for at least six months or a year. 2. Boil cumin seeds in water and inhale the steam. It helps dilate the bronchial passage. 3. Take 5 gm of ginger, black pepper, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and 30 gm of sugar. Grind the mix to a powder. Take half to one teaspoonful and mix it nicely with honey. Take it twice a day 4. Pulses like old rice (rice which is stored for at least one year is called old), wheat, barley, kulattha, mung beans, arhar beans, etc. Should be consumed. 5. Honey, warm drinks like herbal teas, spice teas are also okay. 6. Sprouts, nuts and seeds can be taken in moderate amount. 7. The heavy foods and those which make ama should be avoided. This mainly includes milk products like cheese, curd, butter milk, creams, and banana, etc. 8. Oily, greasy and fried foods which are difficult to digest should be avoided. 9. White flour and white sugar products should be avoided. 10. In addition, try to avoid the cold foods, cold drinks and other refrigerated things. 11. Avoid excessive or physically demanding exercise.

I have delivered baby girl on 3rd October premature at 32 week 2 days weight 1.5 kg. The baby had sepsis and suddenly her kidney parameters are as below Protein urine random: 70.59 mg/dl creatinine Urine: 5.71 mg/dl Protein creatinine ration: 12362 mg/g Please suggest what are the long term impact on her kidneys. Her KFT test is within normal range.

I would first like to reassure you that there will be no long term side effects on the kidney. sepsis can cause shock like effects on the kidney thus elevating kidney parameters. but this is temporary. . however, baby kidneys are strong and regenerate better than adult kidneys. as the child grows, the kidneys will repair themselves.

Prolactin is the hormone that stimulates milk production by the breasts. Small elevations in prolactin cause irregular menstrual periods or complete loss of menses (amenorrhea), ability to ovulate (remain fertile) and may cause milky discharge from the breasts (galactorrhea). In addition, women may have a reduction in their sex drive. The normal prolactin level is < 20 ng/ml.------------------------the pain and pinching sensation in abdomen can be due to -------------- 1. Pelvic inflammatory disease,(pid) as you experience white discharge while urinating if accompanied by foul mell, itching and frequent urination pointing toward yeast infection----------------------- 2. Normal white discharge if it is clear and odorless------------- so, I will advise you to undergo another confirmatory diagnostic tet and discuss the reportss with me--------------ct scan brain to rule out pituitary prolactinomas-----------------------
