Hi all your tests are normal except there is vitamin d insufficiency. The sun's rays provide warmth and light that enhance your general feeling of well-being and stimulate blood circulation. Some uv radiation is essential to the body as it stimulates the production of vitamin d. Vitamin d has an important function in increasing calcium and phosphorus absorption from food and plays a crucial role in skeletal development, immune function and blood cell formation. There is no doubt that a little sunlight is good for you! but 5 to 15 minutes of casual sun exposure of hands, face and arms two to three times a week during the summer months is sufficient to keep your vitamin d levels high. Closer to the equator, where uv levels are higher, even shorter periods of exposure suffice. Hence, for most people, vitamin d deficiency is unlikely. Possible exceptions are those who have very limited sun exposure such as the housebound elderly, or those with heavily pigmented skin who live in high-latitude countries where uv levels are relatively low. Recognising the need for vitamin d, many countries have introduced supplements into common food like flour, cereals and milk. Naturally occurring vitamin d is very rare in our diet, it is present mainly in fatty fish and cod liver oil.

If you hav all your tests done and everything is negative. Then the two commonest reason should not be overlooked. Mouth ulcers can also be due to gastro disturbance. Please take care of your food intake. As you have mentioned, you have kidney stones now, I guess your food intake is not healthy. Change your food habit and inculcate lot of vitamin b complex in food. Sometimes dangerous diseases are given so importance that the minor reasons are missed. Take care.

yes water with lemon will help in kidney stone. actually instead of lemon, big size lemon called MATULUNGA OR JAMBIRI lemon should be used. they have big roll for kidney stone. you should use half or one forth boiled water as according to ayurveda, this water is basti sudhdhikar means clearing kidney & bladder. you can also use coconut water

I can't understand the problem that I am getting sperms when I urinate. Please answer me what happened to me.

I can't understand the problem that I am getting sperms when I urinate. Please answer me what happened to me.
it is actually spermatorrhoea. There are many causes more related to age,diseases of blood vessels and nerves,abuse of drugs,alcohol,smoking and medications. Perhaps the most common in your age group relates to psychologic factors.Guilt complex about masturbation is one single cause of performance anxiety. Also fear of losing manliness due to loss of sperm is known as Dhat syndrome quite common in India. Anxiety,depression are other contributing conditions. More than any medication you may need counselling but then few tests may be needed to rule out physical problems. A doppler test would rule out blood vessel relatd problems,and an endocrine workup to rule out testosterone based endocrine problems. NPT test otherwise known as Nocturnal Penile Tumiscence Test rules out organic problems. GO FOR HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT.

I am getting motions and my urine is coming completely yellow can you please suggest y its coming.
Dear lybrate-user, there are multiple possibilities which are responsible for motions and yellow urine. First of all you need to do is drink water, ors, lemon water. In diarrhoea the body looses its water so the urine is concentrated and it becomes yellow so this yellow urine may be because increased motion. Have one cup of strong coffee this will help in controlling motions. If the diarrhoea is still not in control then consultation is required.

Dear user. The patient seems to be having anaemia as a result of kidney failure. He might require transfusions or injections depending so many factors. I think you should discuss the matter with a nephrologist.

Hello sir I want to ask about crestine level increase problem my coligue child have a series problem of this Creatine increase level due to this he is on dialysis Section please suggest any cure or suggestion to recover this problem.

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
Hi, high creatinine is suggestive of poor kidney function. Since the child is on dialysis, most probably he is having kidney failure. There are two types: acute or chronic. If it is an acute kidney failure, the treating nephrologist will be able to make the kidney function again with his treatment. In case the kidney is permanently damaged, kidney transplantation is the best option.

I am 20 year old. I have stone in my kidney. What can I do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I am 20 year old. I have stone in my kidney. What can I do?
What are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) registered dietitian who will also prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I am having sebaceous cysts on my testis sheath, the same has been from more than 15 years now, though they are not painful but itchy, I have been avoiding the same for long as I didn't found any medicine for the same. Is there any way I can get rid of them completely.

Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , you have rightly waited for all these years because if they remain stationary and painless one does not have to do anything. There are no medications which help to make them disappear. Only way to get rid of them completely is surgery.

It might be due to loss of semen through urine. Kindly look for it. If it is so have 3-4 soaked almonds at bed time with milk.
