You should look for a condition Renal Artery Stenosis, by doing Doppler study. No direct relation to ectopic kidney and BP if the function is normal and there is no reflux. BP medicine will continue for long, possibly life.

My friend who was around 36 years lost his life few days back. He used to have alcohol once in a while. His both kidneys were damaged completely. So I want to know that usually /maximum/minimum how much time does it take for kidneys getting damaged completely. And what are the symptoms and reasons for it. Thanx.

Regular alcohol intake in moderate quantity or occasionally usually does not damage kidneys so badly and rapidly leading to failure. There must be some other cause for kidney failure in your friend. Causes for kidney failure are long standing diabetes (20 plus yrs), not well controlled, high bp again of long standing, kidney infections or other diseases of kidney. Usual symptoms may be swelling of lower limbs, reduced urination, passing of albumin in urine etc.

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. 10. Take 2 tab neeri thrice daily with water after meals.

It depends on how much water you consume per day. Your atmosphere if you have hot around you will lose more water in perspiration. Anxiety may cause increased urination. Many people passes urine 2-3 times per day and many 15-20 times per day both are normal. Untill you have pain and any other discomfort it is normal. If then also you feel to check it out go for usg abdoman and pelvis. It will give you proper diagnosis.

Kidney stones are a very common health problem. They form from the chemicals in urine, such as uric acid, phosphorous, calcium and oxalic acid. Other common causes of kidney stones are excessive consumption of vitamin D, a mineral imbalance, dehydration, gout and an improper diet Irrespective of the size of the kidney stones, they can cause severe pain. Other symptoms include a desire to urinate frequently, painful urination, nausea, vomiting and excessive sweating. Pomegranate Both the seeds and juice of pomegranates have astringent properties that can help in the treatment of kidney stones. ? Try to eat one whole pomegranate or drink one glass of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice daily. You can mix pomegranate in a fruit salad also. Another option is to grind one tablespoon of pomegranate seeds into a fine paste. Eat this paste along with a cup of horse gram soup once daily. This remedy will help dissolve the stones. Being high in fiber, kidney beans can be effective in the treatment of any kind of kidney or bladder problem, including kidney stones. ? Remove the beans from inside the pods, then put the beans in hot water. Simmer the water on low flame for hours until the beans become soft and tender. Strain the liquid and allow it to cool. Strain the liquid again. Drink it several times throughout the day to relieve kidney stone pain. This liquid should not be kept for more than 24 hours, as it will lose its therapeutic properties. ? You can also eat kidney beans in soup or salad. To conclude, you can try any of these natural remedies for treating kidney stones Ayurvedic medicenes are neeri syrup and calcury syrup and vrikkdoshhar vati for more queries inform me.

I would rank can notharis as the number one homeopathic remedy for uti when the symptoms agree to it. Can notharis has been a very helpful homoeopathic medicine in treating cases of utis in people who have recently had an attack of streptococcal infections. This medicine can also be used in treating cases where there is recurrence, which means that people suffer from repeated attacks of these infections. It is indicated when the patient experiences a burning pain while passing urine. The patients get a feeling that they have to pass urine very often, but can pass very less urine at a time. Each time while passing urine, the patient experiences a very bad intense pain in the lower abdomen which extends upwards till the belly button. There is a feeling that the urine was not completely expelled and they feel that still more urine is yet to come out. The pain is more while walking and so the patients prefer to be in sitting posture just to avoid the unbearable pain. Another important symptom that indicates the use of can notharis is that there is pain in the back on both sides of the spine. This region is very sensitive touch, hardly allows the patient to move. At times, the pain radiates down the urinary tract. The patient passes urine mixed with blood and sometimes they may pass frank blood. The urine is turbid and full of fragments. The patient feels very restless and uneasy. They also have an itching sensation in the urethra after passing urine.
