Ckd is usually not reversible. You will have to do dialysis if your renal parameters worsen. You need to be on regular followup by a good nephrologist.

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.

You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones.

I suffered from terrible UTI in August last year, for which I also took medicines as prescribed by gynae and it was cured after 15 days, but since then I have developed this problem that every time I pee, I feel like peeing again, and it happens way too many times after I take a shower. It is not painful like it was during UTi but it is very uncomfortable. I feel very irritated in my urinary tract. Also let me also mention, I have a desk job so I do not urinate very frequently and I have not had any physical contact in the last 3 months, so I think getting infection from my partner can be ruled out. Please tell me why is this happening and how can I cure/prevent it in the future.

increased frequency of urine may be due to a recurrence of uti ,you need to get an urine routine and microscopic examination done for that. whereas Increased volume of urine or polyuria may be due to many causes. If blood sugar levels are normal, diabetes mellitus is excluded. First water, sugar,caffeine,alcohol intake needs to be decreased. If problem does not subside after that, 24 hr urine volume measurement need to be done. If its more than 3litrs, then urine and serum osmolality and specific gravity needs to be evaluated. Depending on them serum vasopressin level and desmopressin stimulation test needs to be done later. These tests will exclude central or peripheral diabetes insipidus or polydipsia. Treatments can be done accordingly. Also history of taking any drugs like lithium, demeclocycline, amphotericin b, aminoglycosides etc. Or histry of any cns infections, trauma, surgeries needs to be excluded.

Dear firstly one has to tackle right upper you stone which is small enough to pass down along with urine. One has to give little help so that it comes out with least pain and much more quickly. For that 1 take tab. Drotaverine hydrochoride 80 mg in mornibg with it tab. Lasilectone 50 mg in morning. If there is pain do not tale lasilectone and if there is pain doverine should be taken four times day for five days diurtic regimn I have suggest should taken for 20 days with 110 days holidays repeat for three months and check usg. If the stone has passed out stop the medications. At the same time it is imperative to find out the underlying cause of stone formation. Lower caliceal sone can come down similarly in due course of time

Nope. It's called unnatural sex. It's a bad habit. It's shouldn't be followed. If you are having such bad habits which you can't control you should immediately consult a psychologist as you are going in the abnormal way. Urine is a waste material removed from human body. So waste doesn't contains any medicinal properties. Urine therapy is not authentically approved by medical science. More than that using it as medicine will result in other diseases. So please stop watching such movies and don't go for such treatment. You can go to right treatment either Allopathy, Ayurveda,Homoeopathy, Unani Siddha, Acupuncture etc for your suffering. Thanks.

Echogenic kidney ke baare me btaye. Mere beta ka right kidney cortical echogenic by birth hai. Kya ye apne aap thik ho jata hai.

Increased echogenicity of the kidney in the newborn has many causes, some of which reflect serious renal disease. The major abnormal imaging pattern is the large, diffusely hyperechoic kidney with abnormal architecture. The various cause of echogenic kidney are 1. Heriditary the family history and ultrasonic screening of the parents and siblings are essential in the evaluation. The identification of associated nonrenal abnormalities is important to the recognition of syndromal cystic disease. 2. Second cause of the enlarged hyperechoic kidneys with abnormal architecture include renal vein thrombosis and congenital nephrotic syndrome. A second pattern is the hyperechoic small kidney with abnormal architecture. Many of these kidneys are dysplastic and associated with urinary tract obstruction. The combination of hyperechoic parenchyma and pyelocaliceal dilatation suggests obstructive cystic dysplasia. 3. Cortical and medullary necrosis in the newborn also causes hyperechogenicity in small kidneys. A third pattern contains those kidneys with medullary hyperechogenicity, the most common cause of which in the newborn is nephrocalcinosis associated with furosemide therapy treatment of echogenic kidneys depends upon the effects it causess to the kidneys and some of the effect are 1. Renal dysplasia 2. Acute glomerulonephritis 3. Chronic glomerulonephritis 4. Acute tubular necrosis 5. Hemolytic-uremc syndrome 6. Chronic renal failure 7. Nephrotic syndrome 8. Glycogen-storage disease 9. Sickle cell anemia 10. Polycystic renal disease so the treatment depends upon what type of condition kidney is suffering from and management given accordingly.

Darker urine is usually a sign that you're not drinking enough fluid" your body needs a certain amount of fluid to function, so the body will hold on to fluid and the urine will become very strong and concentrated. So drink more water.
