What is the cause of kidney stone?
There are various types of kidney stones. The type of stones determines the cause. However certain general causes of kidney stones are as follows: 1. Less water intake. 2. Vitamin d and calcium supplements. 3. Certain medical conditions like hyperparathyroidism, urinary tract infections, crohn's disease, renal acidosis etc. May also lead to kidney stones. 4. Certain medicines can also lead to kidney stones. 5. Diet high in sodium and protein but less in calcium also can lead to formation of stones. 5. People with high blood pressure, obesity and sedentary life style are at a higher risk to develop kidney stone.

I had an accident 1 year ago. I fell from 3rd floor of a building. The impact was on legs. Due to which I lost sensation in legs. And the legs used to pain internally 24*7. And also spine was damaged. Then I had a spine surgery. After 1.5 months of accident, I got my sensation of legs back except for the feet. Pain in feet was still there. Then I had a feet surgery of the calcaneus bones. Now it's 10 months after the feet surgery, there's 0% improvement in my feet condition. No sensation. I can move just my thumb a bit. And internal pain is still there 24*7. What is the reason or what should I do now? Also because my spine was damaged I couldn't urinate after the accident. In hospital I had catheter tube. Then after 2 months I could urinate naturally but with lots of pressure. Even that condition isn't improved even 1% after 10 months. What could be the reason?

As you said you have injured your spine that why there is injury in the lower part of spinal cord. There are many nerves arise from the lower part of spinal cord that control urine & stool excretion & leg sensation & movement. As you said you slowly get control on urination, that means your spinal nerves are healing. But the healing of nerves happens very slowly thats why it takes time to get back to normal position. The pain that happens whole day occurs due to injured nerves because they do not work well (loss of signal transfer, so the injured nerves pain continuously.

There is no such difference. Total fluid intake to be decided based on kidney functions. Patient is probably having urinary stone also. If kindey functions are compromised then total fluid intake has to be restricted.

Home Remedies for Kidney Stones

What are Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are one of the most painful disorders that affect humans. Kidney stones are solid masses of mineral salt deposits that are normally filtered through the kidney and emptied via urine. Urine has a natural substance, which dissolves these minerals, thereby preventing them into becoming solids or calculi. Sometimes due to dehydration, these salts don’t get dissolved and crystallization takes place. It grows large enough to obstruct the renal ducts or get stuck in the ureter, causing sharp and severe pain in the urinary tract. Untreated, kidney stones can cause renal failure


Home Remedies for Kidney Stones

Tip 1:

Boil two figs in a cup of water and drink it on an empty stomach early in the morning.

Tip 2:

Basil leaves (Tulsi) are good for the overall health of kidney. Mix 1 teaspoon of juice from basil leaves with 1 teaspoon of honey and have it daily in the morning. You can also chew two to three basil leaves in order to remove the stones from the urinary tract.

Tip 3:

The water and potassium content that is present in watermelon is an essential ingredient for a healthy kidney. It helps in regulating and maintaining the level of acid present in the urine. Eating watermelon or drinking its juice everyday will help in flushing out stones from the kidney.

Tip 4:

Regular intake of celery helps in clearing the toxins that cause the formation of stones in the kidney.

Tip 5:

Drink a glass of tomato juice with a pinch of salt and pepper every morning. This helps dissolve the mineral salt deposits in the kidney.

Tip 6:

Drinking plenty of water daily will produce clear urine each time you urinate. This will eventually help the kidney stones to pass.

Tip 7:

Whole wheat bread is a rich source of fiber, nutrients and proteins along with magnesium. Having two to three slices of whole wheat bread daily will help a lot in lowering the risk of kidney stone.

Tip 8:

Kidney beans are another effective remedy for treating kidney stones or any kind of bladder problems. You can simply remove the seeds from the pods and slice the pods in the water, allow the water to boil on low flame for an hour until the pods become soft and tender. Strain the liquid and leave till it cools, drink it several times throughout the day to get relief from kidney stones.

Tip 9:

A proper diet is essential in keeping the kidney healthy and prevent formation of kidney stones. Drinking plenty of water and other fluids or liquids daily will help prevent most types of kidney stones. Consuming too much of calcium rich foods such as spinach, beet, cauliflower, carrots, almonds, sweet breads, coconut, turnip, Bengal gram, peas, whole-wheat flour and organ meats like liver and kidney can lead to kidney stones. One should also know to choose a diet that is low in salt and animal proteins. Keep away from condiments such as pickle, alcohol drinks, sauce, cucumber, radish, tomato, asparagus, onion, cabbage, meat and gravies as well as carbonated drinks.

Tip 10:

Lemon juice contains citric acid that helps break down the calcium-based kidney stones. Drink two to three glass of lemon juice daily. This will help increase the volume of urination, which is really good for those having kidney stones
