Dear lybrate-user, Frequency of urination is also a symptom of urinary tract infection. Get a routine urine test done. If it is suggestive of infection you may need to be evaluated for other signs of infection and if present an antibiotic course would be required. If you are passing large quantities of urine, along with increased thirst, get your sugar levels also checked. It could be a sign of diabetes. Rest assured, it should not be causing erectile dysfunction.

Kidney Disease - Symptoms and Tips To Prevent It!

Kidney Disease - Symptoms and Tips To Prevent It!

The kidney is the organ that helps to filter out the waste from the blood. It also helps in maintaining blood pressure. Kidney disease is the condition when the kidney fails to filter out the waste mixed with blood. These causes buildup of waste in the body. Kidney diseases can be classified into:

  1. Acute Kidney Injury – Acute kidney disease is the damage to the kidneys. It may be short term, but in some patients, it may lead to kidney disease. The main causes are:
    1. Acute kidney injury can occur due to a drug, severe infection, or radioactive dye.
    2. Obstruction to the urine caused by kidney stones or enlarged kidney can also lead to acute kidney injury.
  2. Chronic Kidney Disease – Kidney function may worsen over years and can lead to chronic kidney disease. Sometimes it can lead to end-stage kidney diseases, which requires dialysis or even transplants.

Causes

  1. Cyst in the kidneys.
  2. Acute Renal Injury: In gastroenteritis or even in case of high fever, severe dehydration results and the uncorrected dehydration can cause acute renal injury, Chronic renal injury.
  3. Overuse of medicines for pain like diclofenac, ibuprofen etc damage kidneys.
  4. Some antibiotics also cause kidney damage.
  5. Certain ayurvedic medication may have heavy metals as contents which can cause severe damage to kidney.
  6. Certain Chemicals through its vapors or ingestion in chemical factories can cause kidney damage, hence periodic kidney function tests are required in such cases.
  7. Damaged blood vessels of the kidney due diabetes or high blood pressure.
  8. Attacks on the tissues of the kidney or the immune system.
  9. Congenital abnormalities of the urinary tract or of the kidney.

What are the symptoms of kidney disease?

  1. The person may feel nausea or vomiting.
  2. The passing of urine may become lesser.
  3. Persistent fatigue and shortness of breath.
  4. You may have a loss of appetite.
  5. Swelling around the ankles and puffiness of eyes are common symptoms of kidney disease.
  6. The individual has pale, dry and itchy skin.
  7. Muscle cramps, particularly in the legs may also be a symptom of kidney disease.

What can you do to prevent kidney disease?

The best thing to do to prevent kidney disease is early detection and treatment to slow down the progression to kidney failure. Diabetes and high blood pressure can put you at high risk of having kidney diseases. People suffering from these should be extra cautious regarding their kidney’s health. Some of the common prevention techniques are:

  1. If you have hypertension, you have to undergo regular checks and take preventative measures such as medications and a low salt diet to keep these in check. Blood pressure must be kept around than 130/80 at most times.
  2. If you are suffering from diabetes then always check your and blood sugar levels and also perform regular urine tests to ensure that the kidneys are functioning normally. Control of diabetes is very important to prevent yourself from kidney disease.
  3. Cholesterol levels should also be under control. Ensure a healthy diet and regular exercise so that the body can flush out or stop the buildup of bad cholesterol within the body.
  4. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided as these can add to hypertension as well as blood sugar. Smoking should be stopped completely while alcohol can be consumed in very limited quantities once on a while. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.

I have 2mm of stone in kidney. Why does this come ? What should be eaten and what not any tips for this ?

I have 2mm of stone in kidney. Why does this come ? What should be eaten and what not any tips for this ?
According to Ayurveda, improper diet and lifestyle leads to aggravation of all three doshas (Ayurvedic humors) and impairment of the digestive fire, causing formation of toxins (ama) in the body. These toxins travel down the channels carrying urine, where aggravated doshas combine with it, causing its crystallization and leading to the formation of kidney stones. Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. 10. Take 2 tab neeri thrice daily with water after meals.

I Had a Stone's in kidney I had known this by consulting doctor, that is a year back. Doctor told me that Stone's are too small that can be cured by Medicine, I used Medicine for few months, But again I'm getting now pain in my stomach, is that due to change in food, or Should I use that Medicine for life long, When I used doctor prescribed Medicine I had no pain after along time I feel pain, Should I change my diet or should I drink more juices for Summer temperature.

Life long medicine is never needed in these cases. Change in diet is a must if you are having recurrent stones. If the stones are small medications help a lot and after a certain time you need to do a repeat usg of your kidney to know whether stones are gone or not. Stomach pain may be due to many other causes also. You need to do avoid getting dehydrated n avoid carbonated drinks, high protein and high oxalate diets.

You might be having urinary tract infection. You need to do urine examination for r/m/e along with blood glucose. Drink plenty of water daily. Wash your genitalia every time after urinating. Never hold your urge to urinate, as soon you feel to urinate - do it. Cranberry juice is helpful. Maintain hygiene and clean sanitation practises. Hope that solve your query.

Your report is normal .In general, however, normal creatinine levels range from 0.7 to 1.3 mg/dL in men and 0.6 to 1.1 mg/dL in women. High serum creatinine levels in the blood indicate that the kidneys aren't functioning properly. Your serum creatinine levels may be slightly elevated or higher than normal due to: a blocked urinary tract.

Painful Bladder Syndrome - Know The Signs!

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Urology
Urologist, Bangalore
Painful Bladder Syndrome - Know The Signs!

The kidneys make urine, which is a fluid through which wastes from the body including urea are eliminated from the body. There are two kidneys on the right and left side, which make urine, and pass it down to the bladder through tubes known as ureter. The bladder acts as a reservoir of the urine that is formed in the kidneys. It is stored temporarily there before being excreted out of the body through the urethra. The urinary bladder is a highly muscular organ and has a rich connective tissue.

Interstitial cystitis (IC) or painful bladder syndrome (PBS) is a very common condition, which affects females more than males. While the exact etiology is not known, it could be age-related and also lifestyle related. People who are used to controlling the urge to pass urine are highly likely to develop this condition. The simple logic is that there is additional pressure on the bladder from the urine that is contained for longer period of time. As such, the muscular wall stretches and begins to feel stressed.

When this habit continues over a period of time, the bladder wall may become irritated or inflamed or even scarred in severe cases. There is no role of bacteria in this condition, and antibiotics are of no help in managing this condition (though the name cystitis usually indicates infection).

The following symptoms are seen as a result of this constant irritation and inflammation.

  1. One may suffer from pain and pressure in the bladder as it continues to collect more and more urine.
  2. This pressure in the bladder also puts pressure on the surrounding tissues in the abdomen including the pelvis, urethra, abdominal organs, uterus, etc.
  3. Women may experience pain in the vaginal tract including vulva and behind the vagina.
  4. Men may experience pain in the area of the scrotum, testicles, prostate, and penis.
  5. There is an increased urge to urinate, which may be as much as 9 to 10 times a day. As the condition progresses, there could be more visits, as many as 40 to 50 visits a day.
  6. This tendency and urge to urinate increases during nighttime.
  7. For women, this urge to urinate and other symptoms including pain are worse during menstruation.
  8. There could be pain during intercourse for both men and women.
  9. There could be pain even otherwise, which can range from a mild dull ache to a piercing pain.
  10. At a structural level, this constant pressure leads to pinpoint bleeding (glomerulations) and sometimes even ulcers in the bladder wall.

There is no definitive treatment for IC or PBS. However, bladder distention and instillation are proven methods of increasing bladder capacity, which therefore helps in relieving symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

My 2 months 20 days baby is urinating around 5 Times in an hour from past 3 days. And in deep sleep in night she is less urinating. I was detected with gestational diabetes in my pregnancy and was on diet control with no insulin taken. After delivery baby was tested for diabetes and every thing was normal. What may be the reason for this. Is it due to cold climate? Her birth weight is 3.02 kg and present weight is 5. 5 kg.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. It is possible that due to cold weather, excess lmilk intake etc can cause an increased frequency in the baby. Since at birth baby was checked for diabetes, then there is no worry at all. Baby's weight looks fine. Only thing you will have to take precautions like taking a healthy diet, exercising regularly and not allowing excess weight gain or maintain normal weight. Thanks.

Yes you can remove kidney stones with very effective homoeopathic medicines. If the kidney stones are less than 5 mm in size then it will take a maximum of 1 month to remove and if more than 5 mm then some more time and in all cases to a maximum of 75 days. So consult with me with your u/sound reports and all other diagnostic tests that you have undergone till now---------------------

In case of acute factor on chronic kidney disease than dialysis may stop in few patients but full recovery in CKD stage 2 is not possible. If kidney is chronic damage stage 4-5 than would be needing dialysis 2-3 times / week.
