you can take it for 6 week no side effect don't worry but repeat sonography after 1 month ...if after 1month renal ston is not there then no need to take it for next two week

General Physician,
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine; in simple terms, it means a person urinates when they do not want to. Control over the urinary sphincter is either lost or weakened. Urinary incontinence is a much more common problem than most people realize.The definition of urinary incontinence in men is the unintentional loss of urine. Weak or damaged bladder muscles, overactive bladder muscles, certain prostate conditions, and nerve damage are just some of the possible underlying causes of urinary incontinence in men.infections can irritate your bladder, causing you to have strong urges to urinate, and sometimes incontinence. Other signs and symptoms of urinary tract infection include a burning sensation when you urinate and foul-smelling urine. Constipation. Nightfall is not a disease and is normal in men

I have e coli from last 2 months even after continuous medication. My current urine culture report have 100000 colony count of bacteria. Sensitive medicines are ciproflaxin, gentamycin, cephalocin (first line of medication). Is anything serious in having colony count 100000 and what should be the course of medication.

I don't understand why you should have this Colony count even after 2 months of treatment. Either the treat is not being taken fully or there is some other reason. This count means a full blown infection. Get a USG done of kidney and urinary bladder to rule out any other pathology and a blood sugar test done to rule out diabetes. Do not take it lightly. Take a lot of fluids orally and contact me.

My brother 25 years old. Had kidney stones of width 14 mm and 12 mm. Took ayurvedic medicine and stone came out. Will there is chance of formation again.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Delhi
Yes, if proper diet is not followed and health is not taken care of there are chances that stones may reoccur. He needs to take some precautions for that will suggest you to bring him to me or contact me to get more details about stones formation and what should be done to stop re-occurrence of kidney stones. Kidney gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract. Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming. If the crystals remain tiny enough, they will travel through the urinary tract and pass out of the body in the urine without being noticed. You can connect with me.

I have given tips for renal stones today for this kind of problem the herbal medicine is most appropriate in such type of problems where the stone tends to dissolve and the tendency of recurrence of stone is also controlled. Lot of fluids should be taken and avoiding heavy water/ fluoride water is recommended. This depends on the water quality in your area. You may seek pvt consultancy to get specific reply. For that please furnish blood, urine lab reports and other reports if you have.

You should have mentioned all the reports you have gone through. As I would have suggested USG KUB and Urine culture sensitivity. And in this complaint if you wish to take homoeopathic medicine then also details of all your complaints so that a good medicine can be matched. I wish to help you but without proper data I am helpless.

Urine infection. What medicine should I have. Diet what should I take for kidney disease.

General Physician, Cuttack
1. Drink plenty of water (8-10 glass daily) 2. Do urine examination for re/me, culture&sensitivity and consult doctor for advice 3. You have to take a course of antibiotic for 7-10 days even if you get relief to avoid recurrence 4. Avoid coffee/alcohol/spicy food which irritates bladder.

I had intercourse for around 8-10 times in last 4 days. After yesterday night intercourse I am experiencing immense pain while urinating. I never did experienced this before. What this can be?

This is called honeymoon pyelitis. It's common after sexual intercourse in some ladies. It's mostly seen in ladies who have sex for first time. The burning sensation while passing urine will go byitself without any treatment after 3 or 4 days. But if the symptoms persisting more than a week, then take the following homoeopathic medicines for just 3 days and revert back. 1. Staphysagria 200 4 pills morning and night 2. Can notharis 30 4 pills 3 times while taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks. Drink plenty of water, minimum 3 to 4 litres per day. Don't hold the urine because of fear of pain. Must pass immediately pass urine if urge comes.
