Mr if blood glucose levels are maintained with in normal limit like fasting closer to 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg & hba1c% <7, kidney function improves and hence creatinine level also can reverse to normal. Plus protein intake also may have to be restricted to about 0.6 g / kg per day. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, is there swelling (hydronephrosis) in kidneys? if so, it needs urgent treatment. Otherwise medical therapy can be tried. Only uric acid stones of this size are easy to dissolve. Calcium oxalate types are difficult to dissolve. You can get a 24 hour urine metabolic study to find out the reason for stone formation and start stone treatment. The size can be reassessed in 2 to 3 months. If the size is decreasing, then therapy can be continued. Otherwise, flexible ureteroscopy with laser will give complete cure. Wish you good health,

This problem may be due to some infection in the tract or even a result of small calculi in the kidneys so first do one cue I.e complete urine analysis and get a usg (sonography) of abdomen and pelvis done. U can also have a glass of water in which coriander seeds and whole cumin (jeera has been soaked overnight) this will help in reducing the frequency of urination to some extent.

Yes. If you retain urine. Means if urine urge comes and if you hold for some times than it may reappear. So advice is. Go for urination as soon as.

prevention of kidney stones

DNB (General Surgery), MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Sri Ganganagar
prevention of kidney stones
Renal stone formation is very common in the hot climate. Renal stone formation is very common problem in north india. These are tips for prevention of the renal stones:

Stones are formed when there is nucleation and infection of the renal system. This can be simply prevented by drinking adequate amount of liquids. Now the question is how to know that we are having adequate intake of liquids. Our urine output must be more than 1.5 lt which can be achieved by taking 2.5 lt of fluid in winter and 4 lt of fluid in summers. The colour of the urine must be white or pale yellow which shows adequate urine.

Most of the stones are of calcium oxalate type. There is myth that taking milk and milk products will increase the stone formation but the fact is oral intake of calcium helps in decreasing the absorption of the oxalate from gut and prevent stone formation. So one should take adequate amount of milk and products. (note: calcium supplement can increase stone formation so avoid them).

Try to reduce the food which is very rich in oxalate: common food highly rich in oxalate includes:
Green leafy vegetable
Cashew nuts, almonds, peanuts
Soy products.

Avoid food which have animal protein like non veg food. These food increases the incidence of the stones. Preferably eat vegetable proteins.

Try to take less sodium diet. People who eat high sodium excrete more calcium in the urine and thus can form the stones.

Chronic kidney stones are often treated with potassium citrate, but limeade, lemonade and other fruits and juices high in natural citrate offers the same stone-preventing benefits. So drink more and more such food.

These were few tips for prevention of kidney stones. Management of stones depends upon the size, location and symptoms of the stone. Not all stones are dangerous but few can be such dangerous that can damage kidney.

Hi dear, welcome to lybrate. Stones remedy ------------it can be excreted with medicine, but ordinary medicines do not work 100%-- only -some 10-15 %, so better you use -following pathrihar course -------------------------------------------------- you should take care of diet. Do not take non veg and fried foods. -add plenty of fresh clean and healthy water -add sufficient vegetables/ fruits to daily diet. -avoid, if any ----------------------------------- - best way at present is -u purchase from some tibetan vaid expert in your area -- tibetan pathrihar course- -a tibetan remedy--1-months for complete cure- and get rid off stones in a short period- if you want to avoid surgery/ lithotripsy etc. At later stage. 100%- results/ cure- a little costly. ----------------------------- for the time being, you can start with;- tab cystone-1-1 with hot kulthi dal water-- 7 days.

At a creatinine level of 4, dialysis is usually not required. If and when there is an indication for dialysis, the options are hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. Both have their own pros and cons which you should discuss with your nephrologist prior to starting dialysis. Also, renal transplant is another option if there is a suitable donor and you r fit for surgery.
