Hello, Thanks for he query. To reduce high creatinine it is essential to achieve a strict blood pressure control and if diabetes is present then blood glucose should also be controlled effectively. Protein intake should be reduced to 0.6 g/kg per day. No non vegetarian food should be given. Excess physical activity should not be carried out. Drinking plenty of water does help. But care should be taken that patient should not be having body swelling or high BP. Thanks.

Hi, individual treatment for kidney stones depends on the type of kidney stones that are formed. Firstly, staying well hydrated by drinking enough water is one of the best measures you can take to avoid kidney stones. To lessen your risk of forming a new stone, it is very important that you drink at least three quarts (12 cups) of fluid throughout the day. In hotter weather, you may need to drink more to make up for fluid loss from sweating. This will help keep your urine less concentrated. Less concentrated urine reduces the risk of stone formation. Most of the fluid you drink should be water. Try to drink a glass of water before bed and if you wake during the night to use the bathroom, drink another glass before going back to bed. There are two kinds of stone oxalate stone and calcium stone and treatment is different based on that. Other than this the combination of lemon juice and olive oil is traditionally used as a home remedy to expel gallbladder stones but it can also be used to treat kidney stones. The citric acid present in lemons helps break down calcium-based kidney stones and stops further growth. Take four tablespoons or a quarter cup of fresh lemon juice. Add an equal amount of olive oil. Drink this mixture followed by plenty of water. Do this two to three times a day, up to three days. You need not continue this remedy if you pass the stones in a single dose. Warning: this remedy may not be suitable for passing large kidney stones. Make sure you consult a doctor before taking this remedy.

Warning: this remedy may not be suitable for passing large kidney stones. Make sure you consult a doctor before taking this remedy. You should look for varieties that are low in sugar, or make your own. Lemons, limes, and cranberries are very high in citric acid, which helps prevent crystals from increasing in size and becoming new kidney stones. Avoid dark beers. These contain oxalates, which can contribute to future kidney stones. Take medication if suggested by doctor and follow the above along with that. For medication for alcohol consult a psychiatrist and get proper treatment done. All the best.

An orgasm is all the things you feel and all the things that happen with your body at the peak of sexual arousal and pleasure. It's a reflex we're all born with (just like knee jerks and sneezes) that our bodies have in response to sexual stimulation. You will *definitely* know when you have one. There's nothing else anywhere in human experience that feels that way.

Hello, he should take proper care of his blood sugar so that it is maintained within normal limits. That will help in preventing unnecessary load on the kidney. Strict sugar control, diet control and salt restriction and controlling bp are important. No one can predict about how long one lives.

This report s fine and you do a urine culture also. Constipation can be relieved by taking high fiber diet, drinking 2-3 liters of water daily and Lactulose syrup.

It was notified that drinking concoction of parsley leaves and coriander at intervals, it clean kidneys hence I wanted to know as to what a ckd patient with restriction of half litre of water per day should act to cleanse his kidneys.

Dear, please take professional guidance. A person with kidney disorder should boil vegetables, strain water and then consume the veggies. Coming to fluid intake, total urine output in a day should not exceed the patients fluid intake whether he is taking buttermilk, tea, soup, ganji, water, rasam, etc.

A tumor, 19×17×16 mm sized, in bladder? At what stage and at what grade is it generally? I know cystoscopy is necessary. But in general, the situation how is going on?

MBBS, DNB (Surgical Oncology)
Oncologist, Delhi
One cannot assess the grade and stage of the tumor without a biopsy. The minimum you require is a TURBT. Whether it is muscle invasive or not will be clear with the HPE report of the specimen, the staging work up is usually done after TURBT.

Actually my gf took 7 unwanted 72 in an year now she is suffering from vaginal pain during intercourse and white fluid discharge and blood comes out after intercourse and when she urinates she suffer a pain in bladder too and cant urinate properly. She is very afraid of ol dis. Please suggest me n guide me. Please.

dear , first of all its very dangerous to take 7 uw pills in a year..it could create havoc with her organs..u can instead use condoms for that purpose.. secondly pain during intercourse and white discharge are manifestations of PID(pelvic inflammatory diseases) i.e. severe infection in her reproductive organs. .difficulty while urinating is manifestation of urine infection.. Get her urine examined for any infection ..also get ultrasound abdomen done.. I would suggest to get her examined by a nearby gynecologist at the earliest to physically examine her first as treatment could be prescribed only after that and seeing the lab tests reports

Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report coz herbal medicines for removing stones can be given according to size and number and location of stones.
