Enlarged Prostrate

This is a commomn problem faced elderly males which results in frequent urination, specially during nights. It disturbs sleep and make the following day difficult. Sleep deprivation reslts in lithargy and drowseyness for the whole day.

Yoga and Naturopathy bring a new ray of hope for such patients.

Lie down on a mat or on the bed. Do Kapal Bhathi for 15 Minutes. But the patient has to ensure that the stroke of Kapal Bhathi is felt on the lower abdomen. This can be achieved by a little effort or training. Repeat the process a second time in the evening.

Apply hot and cold water on the point where prostrate is situated. Take a hand shower attached to Geyser and sprinkle hot water shower for 4 minutes followed by cold water shower for 2 minutes. Repeat 4 times. Start with Hot and end also with hot. Follow this twice a day.

Eat lots of Salad and fruits. Drink less water after 7 pm. Donot drink water during night time unless very thirsty. Keep your weight under control.

I have found that I am suffering from Anal fissure. I think it is because passing hard Stool. It goes on its own and comes back again and again. What should I do to eradicate this problem?

Hi Anal fissures can be really painful and troublesome. Constipation is one of the most important causes of this problem .conservative measures like taking laxatives ,sitting in warm water and eating high-fibre diet will solve your problem temporarily. Laser treatment of Anal Fissure will help you solve your problem immediately and not cause recurrence. Post laser treatment you will be on proper diet (diet chart will be provided) and you will be taught pelvic floor exercises which will help strengthen pelvic muscles and avoid constipation in long-term. Laser treatment is the 10 minute painless procedure with no dressings in post-operative period .we do it very regurarly at Gurgoan and with excellent results.

You are probably having BHP. It's better to get operated on as early as possible. Otherwise, the older you get ,more chances of complications will be there. Sooner the better. All the best.

What Is Lupus Nephritis?

MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, DM - Nephrology

What Is Lupus Nephritis?

The inflammation of the kidneys as an effect of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is known as Lupus Nephritis. Like lupus, this is an autoimmune disease. Inflammation of the kidneys hinders kidney functioning by not allowing the kidneys to regulate the optimum amount and types of fluids in the body and restricts the removal of waste through urine. It can also cause the protein to leak out of the kidneys. If not managed in time, this can eventually lead to kidney failure by scarring the kidney tissue. However, this is a rare occurrence. 

On an average, 6 out of 10 lupus patients suffer from lupus nephritis. In most cases, this disease develops within the first five years of lupus symptoms making their appearance. The symptoms of this disease are mild and can vary from person to person. Very often, the first signs of lupus nephritis become visible only in lab tests as the symptoms are similar to those exhibited by other kidney diseases. 

Some of the common symptoms of this condition are: 

  1. Swelling of the feet, ankles and calves 
  2. High blood pressure 
  3. Weight gain 
  4. Frothy, dark urine 

There are five stages types of this disease and hence, the first step to treating this disease is to identify its type. For this, your doctor will begin with a thorough physical examination and understand your medical history. He or she will also ask for a few tests including urine tests, blood tests, an ultrasound and a kidney biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. 

Lupus nephritis is usually treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive drugs. Medication may also be prescribed to lower blood pressure and prevent the clotting of blood. However, in some cases, this treatment may not be enough to stop the progression of the disease and some kidney function may be lost. If both kidneys fail, dialysis is the next medical step. This involves the use of a machine in place of the kidneys to filter and removes waste products from the body. This may be followed by the need for a kidney transplant

Since lupus patients are at a high risk of lupus nephritis, here are a few conscious lifestyle changes that can help prevent this condition:

  1. Have a diet that is low in salt 
  2. Avoid smoking and alcohol 
  3. Exercise regularly 
  4. Avoid non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs("pain killers") and unproven alternative medications that can affect the kidneys. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a nephrologist.
