Although it is a normal process but we all should get our routine blood tests every 6 months so that if any problem,it can be treated in initial stages itself.So my advise for you is to go for blood RFT if you want to know that your kidneys are functioning normally.

I have read your message. I think I can help you. The best solution for uti remains antibiotics. However since you are reluctant to take antibiotics I will tell you about other measures. Please remember that these measures are usually just additional measures. 1 . take a urine alkaliniser like alkasol syrup. 2. plenty of fluids. 3. plenty of cranberry juice. 4. clean laundry. Avoid spices alcohol . I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information contained in the message will be able to help you find the best solution for your problem.

Dear lybrate user. Please don’t panic. You must understand ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. There is nothing called erectile dysfunction while having masturbation. Loosing erection in the initial stages of sex or not having erection at all or having late erection or lack of sexual desire are called erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. It can cause stress, relationship strain, and low self-confidence. The main symptom is a man's inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Patients suffering from erectile dysfunction should first be evaluated for any underlying physical and psychological conditions. If treatment of the underlying conditions doesn't help, medications and assistive devices, such as pumps, can be prescribed. Yoga, meditation and diet could be prescribed once we know the basic reasons for it. Two natural treatments for ED that have shown promise are red ginseng and pomegranate juice. Ginseng is thought to increase nitric oxide production, leading to improved blood flow. Pomegranate juice is a potent antioxidant and can help too. Watermelon could also help. Psychological reasons usually get cleared with sex therapy. I suggest online sex therapy. Take care.

Hello Ms. Lybrate-user, you must be having fungal infection. You will need antifungal medication locally or orally depending on infection. If you or your partner has diabetes you need to get it controlled. Consult a good gynecologist. Take care.

Hello Ravi , Your symptoms indicate urinary tract infection as you have not mentioned any uneasiness or pain in the region of kidneys. Get a urine routine test done for proper diagnosis and treatment. Drink plenty of water and barley water can also be consumed. Revert back after reports are available. Regards, Dr. Heena

Urine infection can be diagnosed by routine examination of urine. Early morning midstream sample is best. In urine infection other common symptoms are increased frequency and urgency along with burning while micturition. Common site is just below the umbilicus. In your case it may be due to some other cause also, so please consult a physician for proper evaluation. Regards.

Dear lybrate user, this high serum creat level is not normal in any circumstances. Frequent micturition with high creatinine level gives a clue of sone kidney disease or diabetic nephropathy (if it is associated with constant thirst). Kindly consult a nephrologist for further guidance. Backache or stomachache could be related to underlying renal disease, get clearance from nephrologist first and avoid random pain killer as it could be further detrimental to existing renal disease.

I have problem in urination, the force is not normal. It gives mild pain while urinating.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , 1. Most common cause of lack of force in urination and mild pain would be insufficient fluid intake leading small quantity of urine resulting in lack of force and the colour of urine would give some indication Fluid intake should be increased to such an extent that the colour of urine is either watery or straw coloured. 2.Constipation and anal fissure can also produce less force because of spam of the sphincter muscle. 3.Increased frequency of urination can also result in less force because of insufficient quantity 4If there is stone in urinary especially lower tract then also force can be less. 5.Similarly infection in urine can also decrease force. 6. Some form of obstruction in urinary passage If increased fluid intake and treating constipation does not solve your problem then you need to undergo full workup by urine examination, sonography with post void film and proceed from then on. Dr. Kiran Mehta.
