Sir namasteI am a doctor. Working in a village hospital. My age is 32. I had an xray kub which suggested a calculus in right ureter near ischial spine. For which I took cef-o, flavoxate and potrait mb6 for five days. Again I did an xray kub which suggested a calculi at same place. It hasnt come down. Kindly suggest a remedy.ischial spine.

Dear , if the stone is at the level of ischial spine, it must be small in size, hence passable per urethra. Treatment you took will not help pass the stone out. It was wrong treatment. If you dot have pain now then try oral forced diuresis: 1take anti spasmodic like drotaverine hydrochloride 80 mg with diuretic like lasilactone 50 mg in the morning and drink plenty of water. Do not be impatient, stone will out but not so quickly as you expect. Oral diuresis should continued for 20 days then break for 10 days for three months. Then stop medications, save the stone and get its chemical analysis done. During the treatment if you get the pain take drotaverine every 6 hours till pain settles down. If you have pain at the time of taking medicines in the morning then do not take lasilactone> when pain settles down take drotin and diuretic from next morning. If the stone recurs then try to find out underlying cause.

Urinary Tract Infection in Males.


Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are rare in adult males younger than 50 years but increase in incidence thereafter. Causes of adult male UTIs include prostatitis, epididymitis, orchitis, pyelonephritis, cystitis, urethritis, and urinary catheters. Owing to the normal male urinary tract’s many natural defenses to infection, many experts consider UTIs in males, by definition, to be complicated (ie, more likely to be associated with anatomic abnormalities, requiring surgical intervention to prevent sequelae).


Signs and symptoms:

Dysuria is the most frequent chief complaint in men with UTI. The combination of dysuria, urinary frequency, and urinary urgency is about 75% predictive for UTI, whereas the acute onset of hesitancy, urinary dribbling, and slow stream is only about 33% predictive for UTI.

Relevant clinical history includes the following:

Previous UTI(s)
Nocturia, gross hematuria, any changes in the color and/or consistency of the urine
Prostatic enlargement
Urinary tract abnormalities: Personally and within the family
Comorbid conditions (eg, diabetes )
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status
Immunosuppressive treatments for other conditions (eg, prednisone)
Any previous surgeries or instrumentation involving the urinary tract.

A lots of fluid intake is the choicest thing. Ayurvedic preparations also bring much urination without loss of essential salts. Cystone and neeri tabs are most similar in action and try to disintegrate renal stone. 2 tds suffices. Kalmi shora 20 gm+ yav kshar 20 gm should be homogenously powdered and mixed. Take 1gm thrice a day with water chandanasasav 20 ml + equal water twice a day after meals. Revert after 3-4 weeks no side effects' kulth' decoction may also be taken for added benefit. In some states kulth is used as daal with rice eaten as food. It helps removal of kidney stone.

Smelling of urine is not significant and you can do a urine culture and see if there is infection and treat it

Just polyuria without any other symptoms and tests are all within normal limits you need not worry. This is a temporary phenomena which will be corrected by time. Sometimes polyuria can be due to phobia (school) scared of somebody, in cold weather etc. All this is temporary phenomena which will be corrected.

Dear Lybrate user the values say that you can get urine infection if you continue the same habit of food and activity. Take some precautions to minimise the risk. Drink coconut water daily. Avoid junk n fast food.

Yes, kidney stones do re occur if proper diet is not followed and health is not taken care of there are chances that stones may reoccur. You needs to take some precautions for that will suggest you to come and meet or contact me to get more details about stones formation and what should be done to stop re-occurrence of kidney stones. Kidney gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract. Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming. If the crystals remain tiny enough, they will travel through the urinary tract and pass out of the body in the urine without being noticed. You can connect with me.

he needs to be investigated like urine rm and urine cs and serum creatinine and serum calcium and serum uric acid to know the cause of stone formation, he has small stones so they will pass out spontaneously if he will take plenty of fluids orally like water. no need of surgery right now.

I will suggest you to get an ultrasound kub done to rule out any pathology and Few tips on Diet for kidney disease - have a low protein diet (decrease in milk and its products and also decrease in the intake of pulses and nuts etc)- can use corn oil, sunflower oil, olive oil for cooking -decrease the intake of butter, ghee, cream,coconut etc - avoid farsan food items - whole grain cereals are best for carbohydrate intake - get your blood checked for electrolyte levels regularly and adjust salt in diet as per the report values.
