Dear Lybrate User, *Make a powdered preparation of equal quantities of the bark of three-leaved caper tree (varun), puncture pine (gokhru), thatch grass (kas) and horse gram (kulthi). Have 1 teaspoon of this powder 3-4 times a day with water. This is one of the best home remedies for kidney stones. *Soak 2 teaspoon of radish seeds in a glass of water, boil and reduce it to half. Strain and drink 1/2 cup of it twice a day to assist in dissolving kidney stones.

Hello Dr.im suffering from urine problem. I will go for long time to washroom and that is mainly during night times. ...
Don't drink too much water at night. Stop thinking that you have some drops of urine left in bladder. When you evacuate your bladder for once it takes time to create the enough urine to cause the urge. You might have inner urethral sphincter spasm that can be relieved with medicines. Also get your fasting blood sugar checked.

Dear Doctor, I have undergone Renal Transplant on 3rd. December (ABO Barrier). Could you advice me the diet instructions?

The first few days after transplant depending on how well your new kidney is working you may need to continue to restrict certain foods for a short time. Your dietitian, or medical team, will let you know if this is necessary. It is important that you try to eat well during this period to help your wound heal. If you are finding it difficult to finish your meals inform the ward staff or the dietitian. What to do when you go home once your kidney is working well you will no longer need to be on a special diet but it is important that you still watch what you eat and have a healthy balanced diet. This is particularly important as your transplant medications can increase your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. These medications can also weaken your bones so you need to have a good intake of calcium and vitamin d. Continue a low salt diet almost all of us eat too much salt. About 80% of the salt we eat comes from processed foods, fast food, and can noteen and restaurant food. About 10- 15% is added at home and only 5% occurs naturally in food. To reduce your salt intake, you need to use less salt in cooking and at the table, eat more fresh foods and less processed and ready-made foods. Avoid using salt substitutes, for example: lo-salt and so low. Limit fat. Eat more fruit & vegtables fruit and vegetables are the perfect snack food. They are high in fibre, vitamins and minerals and low in fat. Aim to eat 4-5 potions of fruit and vegetables each day. Fresh, frozen, dried or tinned all count! include a wide variety of fruit and vegetables. A small glass of fruit juice (unsweetened) can count as 1 portion each day. Choose fruit tinned in natural juice instead of syrup. Dried fruit contains a lot of sugar and should be consumed in small quantities. Avoid adding salt, butter, oils or rich sauces to vegetables. Grapefruit and grapefruit juice is best avoided if you are taking: cyclosporin (neoral/sandimmum), prograf (tacrolimus) or cholesterol lowering drugs.

Dear patient, your problem persist due to not proper treatment of your infection.

You need proper medication to fully get rid of your infection. Mastrubation in such doest not make much infection until you putting your fingures inside your vagina. You can revert me back to prescribe you best medicines according to your reports and guide you more about it.

I am having kidney stone of 1.5 cm dia, how to get rid of it.
Stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) registered dietitian who will also prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Pain killers can give you only temporary relief and not permanent cure. All sort of urinary disorders can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines if properly taken as per the instructions of a qualified homoeopath either direct consultation or online. Homoeopathic medicines doesn't contain any side effects at all. No diet restrictions in homoeopathy, only coffee should avoid while taking medicines. Medicines like can notharis, apis, berberis, lycopodium, hydrangea etc are very good medicines to treat various urinary disorders according symptoms presented by the patient.
