Dear lybrate-user Thanks for sharing your concern. If may be due to dryness of vaginal passage which causes friction and bleeding or may be a urine infection. Initially for 15 days you could use KY jelly or vaseline to lubricate, thoda may reduce bleeding after sex. If blood is still present then consult Gynae for further test and urine culture.

The term HbA1c refers to glycated hemoglobin. It develops when hemoglobin, a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout your body, joins with glucose in the blood, becoming 'glycated'. By measuring glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), clinicians are able to get an overall picture of what our average blood sugar levels have been over a period of weeks/months. For people with diabetes this is important as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications. HbA1c is also referred to as hemoglobin A1c or simply A1c.

Kidney Stones: Best Way To Treat It

Kidney Stones: Best Way To Treat It

Kidney stones are often small enough and pass through urine without much bother. Most kidney stones are smaller than 4 mm in diameter. Having said this, even the smallest of kidney stones can be really painful until they pass through urine (learn more what Urine Says About Your Health). It typically takes a couple of days for the body to get rid of it. While medication and self-care are the foremost options, there are a range of other options as well available for treating kidney stones.

Admission to a Hospital-

You must get admitted to a hospital if the stone moves to the ureter, thereby resulting in severe pain. Typically kidney stones which are more than 6 mms in diameter need to be surgically removed through procedures such as ureteroscopy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL), open surgery and extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL). A doctor takes a call on any of the above procedure if:

  1. The patient is inching towards a kidney failure.

  2. The pain doesn’t go away even after taking pain killers.

  3. If the patient is pregnant (learn more about for healthy pregnancy)

  4. If the patient is more than 60 years.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL)-

ESWL is one of the simple and most preferred stone removing procedures. It involves the usage of ultrasound shock waves to break the bigger stones into smaller ones. The latter is then passed through urine. A patient is given a few painkillers since this mode of treatment could be a little uncomfortable. A patient might need multiple ESWLs to successfully get rid of all the stones.

Ureteroscopy:

If a stone gets stuck in the ureter, a medical procedure known as the ureteroscopy is performed. In this procedure, a thin telescope is passed through the urethra and bladder to the ureter. Either a second instrument is used or the telescope itself has laser energy to break the bigger stone into smaller ones. This procedure is ideal for stones that have a diameter more than 15 mm.

Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL)

PCNL is an alternative to ESWL for removing big stones. This procedure involves the usage of nephroscope that is routed into the kidney through a small incision made behind the back of the patient. This procedure requires general anesthesia and is effective for breaking stones that have a diameter of 20 mm or more. It has a success rate of 86%.

Open Surgery:

This is one of the older methods to eradicate kidney stones. Unless the stone size is abnormally large and other procedures cannot be performed, open surgery is generally avoided. An open surgery involves making an incision and getting access to the ureter and the kidney. The surgeon then removes the stone from the kidney. This procedure requires general anesthesia and the patient needs to be under observation for at least 24 hours, post surgery.

Renal calculus or kidney stones is nowadays is common problem. Just because of our lifestyle. Nothing to worry it is treatable. As the size is not more it can be treated very well in homoeopathy. There are many medicines in homoeopathy for such problem. Depending upon your case history specific medicine is prescribed. Along with it you need drink 10-15glass of water every day. Avoid spinach, tomato. And such calcium rich food.

It looks like acute viral hepatitis. Take rest, watch for complications if any due to hepatic failure, otherwise it is self limiting disease. Repeat tests after a week and see the evolution of disease. So long as child is active, has good appetite, nothing to worry. If some thing goes wrong visit to paediatrician is must. Improvement in itching will suggest lessening of oedema of liver.

Dear user, just because you are feeling like to urinate frequently, doesn't means you are diabetic. Along with this if do you have some other symptoms like, weight loss, frequent hunger or thrust, any weakness or anything. If you have all this or you have family history of diabetes then better just check one your blood sugar.

Lemon contains citric acid which decreases the acidity of urine; this prevents the formation of calcium oxalate and uric acid stones. Lemon juice helps break up kidney stones and dissolves them so they can pass easily from the Kidney to the bladder through urination. Too much intake of lemon juice in a day is not good. Normal water you can drink. Daily 3-4 litres of normal water intake is recommended. Boiled and then properly cooled or Luke warm water is preferable to drink. Homoeopathic medicine like berberis, Lycopodium, Hydrangea, etc which helps to dissolve stones easily and eject out through urine. No side effects in HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES. For treatment you can consult me.

Hypochondria (health anxiety) is a form of chronic psychological stress that millions of people around the world suffer from on a daily basis. 1. Allow yourself to feel these feelings - the first step in overcoming such an issue in one's life, is to first accept the way you are feeling. Many people with hypochondria tend to be very anxious of the fact that they have health fears! yes, the psychosomatic nature of this condition truly knows no bounds! it is important that you consciously accept the way you are feeling, rather than unconsciously fighting against it, which only creates further internal stress and conflict. However, when you allow yourself to feel your feelings, you release resistance and open to the healing process. 2. Surrender to uncertainty - we all have to live with degrees of uncertainty in our lives. One of the core roots of hypochondria is the fear of death, which is something that every human being must confront at some point in their lifetime. When you begin to surrender to the uncertainty of life, you free yourself from the chains of fear, and instead, begin to embrace your divine awareness. 3. Stop googling your'symptoms' - this is by far one of the most notorious habits of someone suffering with hypochondria. However, freeing yourself of this habit is one of the keys to success as it helps to neutralise the pattern that one has ingrained in their consciousness over many years in their life. This is the pattern of seeking reassurance or validation outside of oneself. There is a big lesson to be learned here, and one that will become clearer to you as you begin transmuting such habits. 4. Trust your own judgement - although this is one of the fundamental challenges for someone dealing with hypochondria, it is something that can be very effectively addressed through gradual steps. In your day to day life, for example, when doing certain individually assigned tasks at work, just become conscious of when you ask other people for their opinion or advice on whatever it is you are doing. As you develop more self-awareness of this, begin to make small-scale decisions based purely on your own judgement. At first, this can seem very daunting, but you will be surprised how powerful your intuition really is! understand that even if you do make a'mistake' that's ok! everyone makes mistakes! how would we truly learn anything without making them? 5. Go for a walk in nature - it's one of the simplest tools, but one that can absolutely transform your day from one of doom and gloom to one of optimism and self-empowerment! get those legs moving, get those lungs breathing that clean fresh air, and get out in nature. I assure you it will help to purify your body, mind and spirit of any negative energies. Become conscious of what is around you. Pay careful attention to nature - she can teach you many wonderful things about her laws and the bliss it will bring to your life by living in accordance with them. The key here is to listen with your heart, rather than your ears. I hope that you find benefit in applying these to your own life, and remember, it's not how quickly you are able to transform. Rather, it's the patience and kindness you have with yourself for making an effort to positively change your life, one step at a time! peace of mind to you warm regards,

High blood sugar makes you prone to infection. Unless you control it, infection will recur. Check urine routine to confirm. Check fasting and pp blood sugar. Change meds if needed.
