Hi lybrate-user, thanks for the query. I would suggest to increase your water intake at a regular interval. It does happens when one take a lot of water and then have a gap for long. Avoid spinach, cucumber, milk products and milk, calcium tabs etc. Homoeopathy has a specific medicines for episodes you can ask your doc for same. Pay attention if you have fever, recurring pain within days, less urine output etc. Keep track of calculi by evaluating with usg.

The natural remedies for kidney stones: 1. Drinking enough water and plenty of hydrating fluids (like herbal tea, water or fruit-infused water) is even more important if you have a sodium-heavy diet. While fluid intake varies depending on your size, diet, location and how much you work out, try to drink about 1 glass every hour. 2. Fresh foods that promote healthy kidney function include bananas, leafy greens of all kinds (and fresh-squeezed veggie juice), sprouted legumes, sprouted grains, fish and small amounts of pasture-raised poultry. 3. Vitamin E-rich foods — Berries, olive oil, almonds, avocado and squash are a few of the best sources of antioxidant vitamin E, which helps balance levels of oxalates and other toxins in the body. 4. Alkaline foods — foods that are acidic in nature and help balance the body’s pH level, like lemon or apple cider vinegar, can help the body pass kidney stones. 5. Magnesium and potassium-rich foods — Consuming plenty of magnesium and potassium can help balance calcium levels in the body, so include lots of leafy green veggies, cruciferous veggies, melon, bananas and avocado in your diet. On the other hand, here are some foods that can contribute to kidney stone symptoms: 1. Sugary foods 2. Regular unsprouted grains or refined grains — Most grain products (including flour and products like cereal, bread, rolls, cake, etc.) contribute to kidney stones because they have high levels of anti nutrients, including phytic acid. 3. Foods naturally high in oxalic acid — While all fruits and vegetables generally offer a variety of electrolytes and nutrients, some that can increase oxalate buildup in people prone to kidney stones include: spinach, tomatoes, eggplant, beets, celery, grapefruit/grapefruit juice, sweet potatoes, peanuts, almonds, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, parsley and cocoa. 4. Processed meats and cold cuts — Processed meat can cause the body to excrete calcium, which means more is sent to the kidneys where it can build up and form stones. 5. Caffeine and alcohol — Both are dehydrating and can be difficult to digest, which can make kidney stones worse.

I have 4mm calcium stone in my right kidney, how to remove this ?

FIMSA, MD-Nephrology, DM - Nephrology, Critical Care Medicine, MBBS
Nephrologist,
Since the size is very small it can be best managed by simply increasing fluid intake to produce about 2.5-3.0 liters urine daily,unless it becomes increased in size or recurrent or get infected in which case you will require treatment under supervision of Nephrologist.

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.

Your weigh may be the problem. You should be around 65 kgs. Try to reduce your weight. If your job is to stand for long time. Follow few tips. * take breaks frequently. *place one foot on a small stool or raised area and alternate with other foot every 20 to 30 minutes gap. If your job is in sitting. Follow this tip. *lie at your back - fill the gap under your lower back so that your lower back rests fully on ground - then raise both your legs (without bending knees) just 5 degrees from ground - repeat it for 5 to 10 counts. Important notice -should not be done by holding breath.

Avoid milk n other dairy products - as their calcium content wud might increase the number n size of stone. Also start using'kulattha ki daal" - natural stone crusher. Drink coconut water regularly - very good diuretic. It wud not allow stone formation in body.

I have this pain when I go to urinate. I can not wait long for urinating it hurts when I do not go. My gynae gave me meds for a UTI which includes an antibiotic, a medicine for gas which I am taking twice a day. I got myself for any infections but the reports came normal. Sometimes the burning remains even after I urinate. My urine has no smell. If I drink around 3 litres of water a day, the pain reduces but doesn't go away. I am about to complete my course of medicines in 2 more days. But I am afraid it's more than a simple local infection.

In summer season many females suffering from same complain. This is due physiology of female urinary tract. What happened is that due to heat more part of body water evaporate in form of sweat. So urine becomes acidic and it lead to burning and pain while urinating. Nothing to worry please complete the course which your doctor suggest you and follow up with them. You will be completely okay. Keep in mind that drink as much fluid as you can. Maintain hygiene of your urinary tract.
