Renal Colic - Ways it Can Be Treated?

Renal Colic - Ways it Can Be Treated?

Our kidneys act as filters which constantly flushes out toxins and excess minerals with water in form of urine. Urine contains lots of minerals which may precipitate and form stones. Urine has lots of pro-precipitating agents and anti-precipitating agents. When their balance disturbs due to some disease, stones start forming. These stones may often lead to abdominal pain which is referred to as renal colic. 

What exactly is renal colic? 

Renal or ureteric colic is the term used for typical pain in one side of abdomen in flank region starting from back and radiating forward towards lower abdomen up to scrotum. This is usually associated with nausea, vomiting and urinary discomfort. There may be blood in urine. 

How kidney stones are related to renal colic? 

Kidney stones usually form inside kidney and lies there without causing any pain. But whenever they are dislodged and stuck at mouth of kidney (pelvis) or anywhere in ureter, they block the passage of urine of that kidney. This causes swelling in kidney termed as hydronephrosis. This swelling in kidney causes renal / ureteric colic. This colic is protective phenomenon and tries to push out the stones. Small stones do come out in urine by this natural process. This spontaneous expulsion of small stones is common and many local practitioners used to get credit of it feigning benefit of their medicine. However large stones need some form of intervention to come out. Otherwise, they do harm to kidneys in long term. 

Symptoms of kidney stones along with renal /ureteric colic - 

  1. Most stones which are lying in calyces of kidney are asymptomatic 
  2. Nausea & vomiting 
  3. Frequent urinary tract infections 
  4. Fever with chills 
  5. Foul smelling urine 
  6. Hesitency, frequency and burning in urination 
  7. Blood in urine (urine with a reddish, pink or brownish hue) 
  8. Passage of small stones in urine 

Treatment of renal colic 

Treatment of ureteric/renal stones involves control of symptoms and stone removal. 

  1. Expectant Treatment or Medical Expulsion Therapy: Small stones of less than 4 mm size usually pass on its own and some medicines like alpha-blockers and steroid hasten up their expulsion. Medium size stone (4-6 mm), sometimes passes with aid of these medications. But stones larger than 6 mm usually require intervention. 
  2. Lithotripsy: This method involves breaking of stones by shock waves into small dusty particles which pass through urine on its own. This is usually suitable for stones upto 1.5 cm and lying in kidneys. This is non-operative treatment which can be done on OPD or Daycare basis. 
  3. Ureteroscopy (URS): This method involves entry of very thin semirigid scope through urethra into ureter. Stone is broken by LASER and removed. This involves single day admission and spinal anaesthesia. 
  4. RIRS- Retrograde Intra Renal Surgery: In this method very thin flexible scope in maneuvered through urethra into the upper ureter and pelvi-calyceal system of kidney. Stones in kidney or upper ureter are broken by LASER and removed. This is also done under anaesthesia and requires a day admission. 
  5. Mini- PCNL: This method is suitable for large renal stones. In this technique, a small hole is made into the kidney through back and tiny scope is entered into the kidney. Stones are broken by LASER and removed. This is done under anaesthesia and require two to three days admission. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an urologist.

It happens with everyone unknowingly but it is harmful because of getting harmonic imbalances. You may follow some regular routines of getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours as well as exercise and yoga and morning walk every day. You may use light diets and soups of carrots and beetroot with ginger and haldi including ghee and nuts every day. Warm milk boiled with ginger and haldi including ghee and nuts every day before going to bed and at breakfast. Avoid oily or junk food and sour products e. G. Pickles etc and nonveg. You may have to go to bed timely with washing your feet.

Appearance of proteins in the urine consistently in repeated checks is suggestive of glomrular problem, that is the filtering membrane is not able to stop leakage of proteins. Prolonged liss of proteins later on may produce symptoms of kidney dysfunction. You should get your renal function tests like Urea, Creatinine etc. Till these values are normal then there is not much to worry.

Treatment for kidney stone depends on where the stone is, its size and whether it is causing obstruction. So all this is required before commenting further. For foot pain see a physiotherapist.

What Is the symptoms of kidney failure and how to or what is the procedure to solve to save our kidney.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Signs and symptoms of chronic kidney disease develop over time if kidney damage progresses slowly. Signs and symptoms of kidney disease may include: • Nausea • Vomiting • Loss of appetite • Fatigue and weakness • Sleep problems • Changes in urine output • Decreased mental sharpness • Muscle twitches and cramps • Hiccups • Swelling of feet and ankles • Persistent itching • Chest pain, if fluid builds up around the lining of the heart • Shortness of breath, if fluid builds up in the lungs • High blood pressure (hypertension) that's difficult to control Signs and symptoms of kidney disease are often nonspecific, meaning they can also be caused by other illnesses. And because your kidneys are highly adaptable and able to compensate for lost function, signs and symptoms may not appear until irreversible damage has occurred. HOW TO MAINTAIN OUR KIDNEY HEALTH 1.Keep your blood pressure at the target set by your Doctor. For most people, the blood pressure target is less than 140/90 mm Hg. This can delay or prevent kidney failure. 2.If you have diabetes, control your blood glucose level. 3.Keep your cholesterol levels in the target range. 4.Take medicines as per your Doctor advise and don’t go for OTC drugs like combiflam,Disprin,Asprin without your Doctors recommendation. 5.Cut back on salt. Aim for less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium each day. 6.Choose foods that are healthy for your heart: fresh fruits, fresh or frozen vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods. 7.Limit your alcohol intake. 8.Be more physically active. 9.Lose weight if you are overweight. 10.If you smoke, take steps to quit. Cigarette smoking can make kidney damage worse.

Small babies many times do not pass stools for 7 days but we have to see that they have soft abdomen at all times and if the urine quantity is adequate than its okay as far as the frequency of urine output is concerned.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Get culture and sensitivity of urine done. Urine infection is very resistant at times especially in elderly and diabetics. Consult a urologist at earliest.
