Long standing diabetes and blood pressure are main reason for chronic kidney failure, there is no cure for this. Acute kidney failure is because of loose motion and drug reaction can be cured if managed properly.

Prostate size does not matter until and unless associated with lower urinary tract symptoms. Do not go with the report, you may need medicines if you develop symptoms due to that enlarged prostate. Sometym patient with prostate size 80 cc may not have any symptoms and few with 24 cc have severe troublesome symptoms. So do not focus on what report says. You can go for surgery for gall stones.

Im suffering from kidney stone then what should I eat or drink for further precaution.?
Hello and welcome to lybrate. Kidney stone treatment depends on it's size, number, block to kidney, etc, etc. Most important in prevention is, to maintain 12-15 glasses liquids daily. Avoid milk and dairy products, red meat and fish bones. If your uric acid was high, you should check blood uric acid periodically, to keep in normal levels. Other precautions in diet depend on reports of stone analysis and metabolic tests done at time of stone treatment.

Hi. One should take at least 10-12 glasses of water in a day (which may vary as per season or climate). Hello. Kidney stones often have no definite, single cause, although several factors may increase your risk.Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form. -Most kidney stones are calcium stones, usually in the form of calcium oxalate. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in food. Some fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and chocolate, have high oxalate levels. Your liver also produces oxalate. Dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can increase the concentration of calcium or oxalate in urine. Calcium stones may also occur in the form of calcium phosphate. -Struvite stones form in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow quickly and become quite large, sometimes with few symptoms or little warning. -Uric acid stones can form in people who don't drink enough fluids or who lose too much fluid, those who eat a high-protein diet, and those who have gout. Certain genetic factors also may increase your risk of uric acid stones. -Cystine form in people with a hereditary disorder that causes the kidneys to excrete too much of certain amino acids (cystinuria). -Other, rarer types of kidney stones also can occur. Medication: There are homoeopathic medication like Hydrangea, Berberis Vulgaris, Cantharis, etc. which are given to remove a small stone in the kidney. Diagnosis: The following tests can rule out obstruction: abdominal X-rays. intravenous pyelogram (IVP) retrograde pyelogram. ultrasound of the kidney (this is the preferred study) MRI of the abdomen and kidneys. abdominal CT scan.

I am suffering from kidney stone since 8 months, Pls suggest & guide me what should I do now.

BHMS
Homeopath,
I am suffering from kidney stone since 8 months, Pls suggest & guide me what should I do now.
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. Continuous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. Formation of stone leads to pain along the kidney region. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3 mm 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 3 mm then you should surely go for surgery.

Lower urinary tracts symptoms in association with dysuria can also result from conditions like overactive bladder and interstitial cystitis. If the urine tests do not suggest infection then you may require more tests like an ultrasound of the abdomen along with assessment of post void residual urine to see if there is any stone or abnormal thickening of your urinary bladder. Subsequently some medicines to tackle your problem can be suggested.

I'm kidney failure patient from 2 year. Now I'm Dialysis regularly. But every night I'm suffering from cough in chest. And I'm getting too much pain. Please advise.

DAA, DNB

Hi. I understand your concerns. As you have chronic kidney disease you are prone to have infections. So better get evaluated by a pulmonologist as you will need to undergo a chest c ray to look for lung infection. Also get yearly influenza and pneumococcal vaccine every 5 years. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.
