I am suffering from kidney stone 4 mm in right, & 8 mm in left, feel blockage for urine. Kindly suggest.

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
Dear Mr I am sorry to know about your problem. I need to know the exact location of the stones. Small stones inside the kidney can be treated with medical therapy since they do not cause any blockage. If the stone has moved into the ureter (tube carrying urine from kidney to bladder), then it needs medical expulsive therapy to push the stone outside. Since this ureteric stone can potentially cause damage to your kidney, it needs to be monitored by a urologist. If expylsive therapy fails, you may need an endoacopic removal (ureteroscopy). If the stones of the size you had mentioned had come into the bladder, they will pass with time. Please get back to me with the exact location of each stone. Wish you a speedy recovery

Does 1.5 cretnine is risky. Is there any threat to kidneys. But I dont have any problem in urination or abdomen pain. My bp is also normal.

upper limit for creatinine is 1.4 mg, above that means there is some difficulty, which in the long run can cause serious problem with the kidneys. At present level it is an indicator of forth coming problem. To bring it under control avoid excess protein foods, high salt contents or take a salt restricted, control bp, keep it normal. Avoid unnecessary analgesics or nsaids like ibuprofen, diclofenac etc.

Dialysis: When Do Kidneys Need it?

Dialysis: When Do Kidneys Need it?

Kidneys are a pair of organs that are located on either side of the spine, each about a size of a fist. The kidneys help in purifying blood by removing toxins, waste materials and excess fluids from the human body. Disorders and dysfunctions of the kidney can lead to severe and often fatal consequences. When the kidneys stop functioning as they are supposed to, dialysis is performed to resume normal functioning in the body. 

Dialysis is a type of treatment, which filters and purifies the blood with the aid of a machine. It is an artificial way of purifying blood. There are two types of dialysis, namely hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis, the most common form of dialysis, which involves using a manmade kidney called a hemodialyzer, which removes toxins and waste materials from blood. 

Peritoneal Dialysis, on the other hand, is a type of treatment which involves implanting a catheter in the abdomen. During the procedure, a sterile fluid called dialysate flows into the abdomen that absorbs all the waste material, which is consequently drained out of the body. 

You may need a dialysis if: 

  1. Your kidneys are dysfunctional 
  2. When waste materials and toxins start to accumulate in the body and cause unwanted effects on your health 
  3. If the GFR (a measure of kidney function) level falls to 10-12 cc/minute 
  4. In an event where the kidneys aren't able to work properly leading to accumulation of toxins, irregular amounts of chemicals in the body and other dysfunctions 

Starting dialysis is a big decision and proper preparation with an AV fistula created well in time is important. When kidney failure is due to chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and nephritis then dialysis will be needed life long or till a kidney transplant is performed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a nephrologist.

The problem is that my urine sometimes smells bad and sometimes it comes slowly slowly. Is it UTI. How can I Confirm....
Please do a urine - routine/culture test to be sure for it. If this is negative you will need to do a USG to rule out any renal stone/prostate enlargement. Based on the reports treatment will vary. Please drink plenty of water daily Take a glass of citrus-fruits juice daily Do regular exercise to stay fit.

Diet - How Important It Is For Kidney Transplant?

MBBS, Diploma in Public Health ( Preventive and Social Medicine)
General Physician, Navi Mumbai
Diet - How Important It Is For Kidney Transplant?

A kidney transplant is a surgical procedure that patients of kidney disease go through in order to replace a non functioning kidney with a live one that is healthy and functions well. Other methods to treat this disease also include dialysis, which basically is an artificial way of doing what our kidneys are designed to do. When dialysis does not work, many doctors recommend a kidney transplant. A replacement or donated kidney can come from a living donor or a non-living donor. This new kidney will mostly work towards keeping the blood clean, which is a function that stops when the old and diseased kidneys fail.

So, here's a list of five essential facts that you need to keep in mind if you are looking at a kidney transplant:

  1. Donors: While there are living and non-living donors, the doctor will have to ensure that your donor is someone who has no medical history of complications, kidney disease or any other medical condition like diabetes or hypertension. Also, the donor would have to have two proper functioning kidneys. Further, one of the most important factors is the blood group. The blood group of the donor and the patient must match for the transplant to be possible.
  2. Procedure: During the surgery, the patient will be under general anesthesia. The surgeon will make an incision in the lower abdomen area and the blood vessels of the new kidney will be connected surgically with the vein and iliac artery of the patient. Thereafter, any excess fluid will be drained before wrapping up the surgery.
  3. Rejection: The patient's body may also reject the kidney. The immune system of the patient may mistake the new kidney as an attacking body and its natural defenses may work against it, which will lead to complications. For this, doctors usually prescribe immunosuppressant medicines that will help in preventing such an eventuality.
  4. Longevity: While a living donor's kidney may last longer, a non-living donor's kidney will not enjoy such a long life. In such cases, a second transplant can be conducted.
  5. Diet: After the transplant, the patient will be required to go through a number of measures like coughing to show that the lungs are clear, as well as administration of fluids and some amount of examination and dialysis. Also, the patient will have to have a special diet that includes raw fruits and vegetables, and plenty of non-fat dairy ingredients.

A kidney transplant is a major operation that can change your lifestyle in the long run. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Hi Sir, I have undergone prostate surgery almost three years back. Now I feel the urine flow is becoming weak. The other point, urine flow is not straight, the flow tilts more to the left side resulting in sprinkling some on my left leg/feet. Please suggest what I should do.
