Thank you for writing to us. Please note the following in respect to your query: it could be simply due to a uti (urinary tract infection) you are suffering from. It could also be due to enlarge prostate (this is rare in a person at your age). Third it could be due to extreme cold at your place and you are taking/drinking lots of water. Please check the above causes and in case you require any further consultation get back to me. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user, shilajit capsule has no effect on urinary tract infection. Take homoeopathic mother tincture can notharis q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 7 days.

lybrate-user. U might be suffering from UTI. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is a common condition that arises when there is an infection caused by bacteria. There is a burning feeling when urinating and an increased frequency of urination. According to Ayurveda, Urinary Tract Infection or Pittaj Mutrakrichhra, is caused by the aggravation of Pitta Dosha. Pitta is an Ayurvedic humor that symbolizes heat or fire. So, a diet and lifestyle that increases Pitta causes UTI. Aggravated Pitta produces heating toxins in the body. These heating toxins accumulate in the mutravahi strotas (urinary channels) and create an imbalance in the infection-fighting properties of the urinary system. It might lead to bacterial growth in the system, amounting to UTI. Diet & Lifestyle Advice Avoid intake of hot, oily, spicy, sour, salty, and bitter foods. Increase intake of liquids in the form of water, juices, coconut water, and other cooling drinks. Increase intake of pitta-pacifying herbs like green cardamom, coriander, red sandalwood, licorice root, etc. Avoid working in the sun or in a hot atmosphere such as near furnaces and boilers. Take a cold-water bath 2-3 times a day with ½ teaspoon of powdered red sandalwood added to the water. Home Remedies Put 3 tablespoons of powdered coriander seeds and 1 tablespoon of powdered rock candy (or unrefined sugar) in a vessel (preferably an earthen pot) containing 3 cups of water. Keep it overnight. Mix well and drink 1 cup of the liquid 3 times a day. This is a very good remedy for pacifying pitta in the urinary tract. Hope you recover with these tips !u may hv a personal consultation with me via Lybrate!

My father is a CKD patient. He is undergoing dialysis for about 6 months. I wanted to ask you about the diet a CKD patient should have. Can you tell me which food he must avoid?

Respected lybrate-userhi 1. Rt side hemicolectomy is not going to cause heart attack but it can modify certain parameters which may affect heart 2. Best would be answered by Urologist 3. Colin surgery is as such risky with due boundaries & limitations in any stage but you have to take risk in any minor or major surgeries dear.

it is better if you consult a nephrologist, because this is a highly specialised area, where I have hardly any expertise to give any advise.

Hello, Thanks for the query. I gone through the details given. There is no information on blood glucose levels, HbA1c%, drugs being taken, present or earlier weight, height, diet and exercise as well as any treatment for urinary stones, so it is difficult to comment anything. Please come back with all the relevant details, then I can advise. Thanks.

Mr. N. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Milk, milk products like curds, butter milk, cheese, ghee etc are not harmful to kidney at all. In a person with diabetes it is better to avoid high fat containing chees. One can use Mozerella cheese which has less fat and more proteins. Curds & butter milk are really good as they provide good nutrition and also are probiotics. Thanks.
