Chronic Kidney Disease: Causes You Need To Know

I am Dr Waheed Zaman principal consultant Urology and liver transplant Max Shalimar Bagh and Max Pitampura New Delhi. Mai yahan pe, I am the head of the transplant unit. I am looking after many CKD patients.

So I thought I will share my views on CKD, CKD is Chronic Kidney Disease and it has got 5 stages there are various causes of CKD and as we know in India diabetes and hypertension is quite common and CKD is the major cause of renal failure, patients are due to diabetes and hypertension. In India almost if you see 60% of chronic kidney failure cases are due to diabetes and hypertension, so we have to take care about the our lifestyle, you have to reduce weight, to exercise proper monitoring of weight and take less salt intake, control your sugar intake and do regular exercise, so we can prevent somehow these two diseases. The other factors are like stone disease, few congenital diseases that leads to kidney failure and a stone disease is quite common in India so that is another major cause of kidney failure or CKD can be divided into 5 stages, stage 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Stage 5 is that is the end state renal disease when GFR is less than 15 and hardly we can do anything with medicines, only option left is either hemodialysis or renal transplant. While in stage 1 to 4 we can have medicine, dietary modification and we can delayed this end stage renal disease. Once in a renal failure is diagnose and CKD is diagnosed within stage 5 then we have to consider about the hemodialysis, if patient is symptomatic. Kidney functions it filters the body toxins, it filters out the water from the body and it is responsible for the calcium metabolism, bone metabolism and blood formation. So it's a very important organ and if both kidneys are not functioning well that leads to kidney failure. If single kidney is ok, there will be no rise in serum creatinine that is the major blood test and very simply, simple blood test by this we can detect the kidney failure.

The other thing is urine protein that is another important, if urine protein urea is there is protein is coming out of the urine then you have to be alert consult your doctor. If renal failure is diagnosed stage 5 then plan for transplant, transplant is always a better option then hemodialysis, hemodialysis just temporary relief and it excrete de toxins and within 3 to 4 days again, we will back to the same. While kidney transplant will give the better quality of life, patient can lead normal life and average lifespan we can say with the transplant is around 12 to 15 years and there is myth in the society that somebody will donate, you will not have to take lifelong medicines that's not true, we are doing all donor nephrectomy laparoscopically and they are free and they are fit and up to work within 1 to 2 weeks. While kidney transplant is a standard technique worldwide and we have got excellent results now a days with the kidney transplant, that is around 90 to 95% success rate in our centres that is as part to the international level, and but one thing is very important they have to live discipline life, lifelong they have to be on immunosuppression. The another myth in the society that donors may lead to renal failure or later on but that is not true, because donors can lead normal life and of course discipline life then they can maintain the creatinine level don't take analgesic and unnecessary analgesic that also leads to kidney failure. For donation as far as the two types of donation one is live donation and other is cadaver kidney transplant and live donation of course only family members are allowed first degree and second degree relatives, wife and husband can donate while distant relatives are very difficult as per of the transplant law. Another is donor exchange we are doing that is the blood group match is not there in two groups then we are matching, predict transplant is possible in our centre, we are doing ABO incompatible transplant, elderly transplant, donors we are taking, so all sort of transplants we are doing and we have lot of excellent result. So transplant will definitely give better quality of life and I will request more and more people to come forward for donation that is when brain death is there, then donate your organs and even live after death that is the my request to all the audience because in India if you see we are lacking in the cadaver transplant program, so we need more and more donations, per year 2 lakh people are dying of roadside accidents if you use 10% of this we can get a huge bank of organs and from the brain death people and many-many people can be benefited with this. In India almost 2 lakh people are having renal needs renal transplant per year and hardly we are doing 8 to 9 thousand transplants per year. So definitely mai janta ko yahi kahunga ki jago aur, aur bhi organ aap donate kare, ang daan maha daan hai, aur isko samaj mein aap failaye. Yadi kisi ka brain death hota hai toh uss brain death se hum log 7-8 logo ko nayi zindagi de sakte hain. So jyada se jyada log organ donation kare isse donor badege aur jo organ failure ke patients hai unko benefit milega.

Thank you so much.

Urinary Incontinence In Men - Possible Causes Behind It!

Urinary Incontinence In Men - Possible Causes Behind It!

While certain health conditions cause physical trauma, there are conditions that cause mental trauma as well. One such problem is urinary incontinence that causes embarrassment in the sufferer. Urinary incontinence is a clinical condition where there is a loss of bladder control which invariably leads to accidental leakage of urine. An individual suffering from this condition may feel an urgent need to pass urine right before passing a significant amount of urine.

The severity of the condition can be under control, or it could be a major concern. Some people are not able to take part in the day to day activities such as lifting heavy weights or exercising, and it leads to emotional distress. The condition may cause other issues and increase one's chance of developing other health issues like high blood sugar and obesity.

What are the possible causes?

  • Urinary incontinence in men occurs when the brain fails to give the signal to the bladder for the sphincters to squeeze properly. It may cause contraction of the bladder muscles to a great extent or fail to contract altogether. If the sphincter muscles or the associated nerves are damaged, it can lead to various issues.
  • Moreover, some people are born with problems in the urinary tract, which increases the chances of developing urinary incontinence. Also, a history of surgery involving the urinary tract or prostate cancer or radiation therapy for prostate cancer may cause this problem in men.
  • It is important to note that urinary incontinence is not a disease. It is instead regarded as a symptom of some health issue or any incident.

Knowing the type is crucial to decide on the treatment
There are mainly four types of urinary incontinence in men which include:

  1. Urgency incontinence: This happens when a person starts urinating involuntarily after the urgent need to urinate. It is primarily caused by involuntary bladder contractions triggered by abnormal nerve signals.
  2. Stress incontinence: This may result from movements exerting pressure on the bladder and causing leakage of urine. This stress may result from coughing, sneezing, laughing or any other physical activity.
  3. Functional incontinence: This type of urinary incontinence takes place when some physical disability or external obstacles or problems keep a person from urinating at the right time. For instance, a man in a wheelchair may face difficulties in going to the toilet in time.
  4. Overflow incontinence: If the bladder is not able to empty correctly then it may result in the spilling of excess urine leading to urinary incontinence. People suffering from urinary incontinence may require frequent urination since they are only able to release a small part of what their bladder can hold.

What are the treatment options for urinary incontinence in men?
A healthcare professional may recommend behavioral and lifestyle changes along with other therapies such as pelvic floor exercises and bladder training to help reduce the severity of urinary incontinence in men. In severe cases, medications are prescribed to establish bladder control.

A pretty common condition in the elderlies, urinary incontinence can be treated and managed with an awareness and medical help. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

You have to check urine RE and if needed culture test to say if you really have infection. It may be that during violent sex there occurs a minimum injury in the urinary tract and is the cause of burning which you feel as infection. Do sex mildly without violent movements.
