I, Tis colour is due to concentrated urine and that is the reason it goes if you drink water. Make it a habit to drink at least 10 glasses every day and check urine for BS and BP also

Nephrotic Syndrome: Causes and Treatment

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Nephrology
Nephrologist, Delhi
Nephrotic Syndrome: Causes and Treatment

Glomerulonephritis is a disease that is caused due to inflammation of the small filters that are present within the kidneys or glomeruli. Glomeruli eliminate the excess waste, electrolytes and fluids from the blood, discharged through urine. A glomerular disease can be either acute or chronic. If the condition arises without a combination of any other disease, it is termed as primary glomerulonephritis. Secondary glomerulonephritis is characterized by diabetes or lupus (an auto-immune disorder) being at the root of the disease. Prolonged or severe inflammation can take a toll on the kidneys.

Causes-

Nephrotic syndrome can be primary, being a disease specific to the kidneys, or it can be secondary, being a renal manifestation of a systemic general illness. In all cases, injury to glomeruli is an essential feature. Kidney diseases that affect tubules and interstitium, such as interstitial nephritis, will not cause nephrotic syndrome.

Primary causes of nephrotic syndrome include the following, in approximate order of frequency:

  1. Minimal­-change nephropathy

  2. Focal glomerulosclerosis

  3. Membranous nephropathy

  4. Hereditary nephropathies

Secondary causes include the following, again in order of approximate frequency:

  1. Diabetes mellitus

  2. Lupus erythematosus

  3. Viral infections (e.g., hepatitis B, hepatitis C, human immunodeficiency virus [HIV] )

  4. Amyloidosis and paraproteinemias

  5. Preeclampsia

  6. Allo-antibodies from enzyme replacement therapy

Nephrotic-­range proteinuria may occur in other kidney diseases, such as IgA nephropathy. In that common glomerular disease, one-third of patients may have nephrotic-­range proteinuria.

Nephrotic syndrome may occur in persons with sickle cell disease and evolve to renal failure. From a therapeutic perspective, nephrotic syndrome may be classified as steroid sensitive, steroid resistant, steroid dependent, or frequently relapsing.

Treatment-

  1. Whether one is suffering from acute or chronic nephrotic glomerular , with symptoms moderate or severe, the treatment lies in treating high blood pressure and other underlying conditions of the disease.

  2. Water pills help control sweating, thus increasing the fluid flushed from the kidneys.

  3. Statins reduce cholesterol level.

  4. Blood thinners such as anticoagulants lower the risk of blood clots.

  5. Corticosteroids regulate the immune system and ease the inflammation that results from kidney disorders.

  6. Incorporating certain lifestyle changes such as opting for lean proteins, cutting on the intake of fat in the diet and consuming lesser amounts of salt can treat inflammation and swelling.

  7. For kidney failure, dialysis can come to the aid in eliminating excess fluids and regulating hypertension.

You have to drink a plenty of water or other fluid. The quantity should always more than two litre of water you intake. Only this will help you to stop this stone formation. Or you can take suggestion from a normal physician that what you have to stop or eat in small quantity. There are many vegetables which increase the percentage of formation of stone in every person. Drink water as much you can only it will help you remove those particals through urine which can be make stone in your body.

Prevention of kidney stones may include a combination of lifestyle changes and medications. Lifestyle changes you may reduce your risk of kidney stones if you: drink water throughout the day. For people with a history of kidney stones, drink 12-14 glasses of water everyday. If you live in a hot, dry climate or you exercise frequently, you may need to drink even more water to produce enough urine. If your urine is light and clear, you're likely drinking enough water. 1 eat fewer oxalate-rich foods. If you tend to form calcium oxalate stones, restrict foods rich in oxalates. These include rhubarb, beets, bhindi (okra), spinach, swiss chard, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate and soy products. Choose a diet low in salt and animal protein. Reduce the amount of salt you eat and choose non animal protein sources, such as legumes. Consider using a salt substitute. Continue eating calcium-rich foods, but use caution with calcium supplements. Calcium in food doesn't have an effect on your risk of kidney stones. Continue eating calcium-rich foods unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ask your doctor before taking calcium supplements, as these have been linked to increased risk of kidney stones. You may reduce the risk by taking supplements with meals. Diets low in calcium can increase kidney stone formation in some people. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine if the stone is or less than 6-7mm - berberis vulgaris q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Revert me back.

Ideally,gastro intestinal system has no direct relation.But if you suffering from severe flatulence,then there may be compression on ureter so you will be having difficulty in urine passing,Better you go for good sonography of abdomen at empty stomach in the morning,and also uroflowmetry with good urologist.Till that you may take Isapgol husk with water at night.

You are probably having BHP. It's better to get operated on as early as possible. Otherwise, the older you get ,more chances of complications will be there. Sooner the better. All the best.

What is PUJ obstruction? my cousin diagnosed with it when she was 19 and due to which her right kidney was removed. Now she is 27. Will there be any problem in future? can she marry? will there be any problem during pregnancy and delivery? Thanks.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, DNB
Urologist, Bangalore
No, not at all, as the kidney has already been removed. There should be no problem with pregnancy and delivery as I presume her opposite (left) kidney is normal and the blood creatinine, is normal. Otherwise you may do this test - serum creatinine.

Yes urine retention gives sexual excitement/ pleasure, because of its pressure on sex organs. But it is not a good habit to retain waste material in body, it may cause uti etc or some other problems in future. You must void urine whenever you feel pressure.

This can be due to infection or stone in urinary bladder. Please get your urine tested. If pus cells count is high, but rbc count is low, proceed for culture and sensitivity of urine & take treatment as per report. But if rbc count is high, sonography will be required. And if stone is present, treatment will depend on its size.
