Kidney stones may pass in urine as the size is small. But Gall bladder stones will not naturally subside. The treatment for symptomatic Gall bladder stones is surgery i.e. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. As you are diabetic it's better to treat the diseases early.

I was suffering from anal chronic fissure and anal skin tag, after treatment for around 3 weeks from my gp, I was not getting relief so I decided to go to the gastroenterologist. Initially he told that it is fissure and gave me medicines like levocet, looz Fibre powder, cremalax, and anometrogyl cream which was to be inserted in the anus. He told me to come after 10 days. Today I again went to gastroenterologist, he asked me about the pain. I told pain has reduced much, but sometimes after my bowel movement the skin tag comes out and it pains. This don't happen everyday but only when I feel constipation. Then he again inspected my anus and told that there is no option for anal tag even though fissure has healed a lot. Anal tag will be disturbing you in the future also. He has given in writing that you will need surgery for anal inflamed tag excision and small anocutaneous fistula pus cast. I asked him after how many days I can go to office. He told after 7 days. He told even if you are not having much pain now. You have no option in future for anal tag other than surgery. He also told to take time and think about whether to go for surgery or not. I am scared and didn't know what to do. Also I will not be able to take long leave from office as I had just joined the company. Anyone please help give me description detail of my problem, how much pain after surgery, surgery process, which surgery homeopathic or ayurvedic, or laser to prefer. The doctor had told it is medium surgery. But I don't know how it will be. Only have heard that there is lot of pain after surgery.

Primary symptoms of chronic anal fissure with sentinel anal skin tag is varied degrees anal pain with burning. Anal pain may be felt at any time in 24 hrs but mostly after passing stool. No conservative measure can give cure. Only surgical treatment can give permanent relief. Operative procedure is simple & takes only 15-20 minutes. Very rewarding result. Need to avail 2-3 days leave. So go ahead & get surgery done at an early date.

Kidney Stones - What Are The Main Causes?

Kidney Stones - What Are The Main Causes?

A kidney stone is a hard, crystalline mineral development, which forms within the kidney or the urinary tract. It is called nephrolithiasis in medical terms. Kidney stones occur due to the decrease in urine volume or due to an excess of substances in the urine which are stone-forming in nature. Dehydration is considered to be a primary risk factor for kidney stones too.

Causes of kidney stones:Kidney stones develop when the urine contains increased amounts of crystal forming substances. They include calcium, oxalate and uric acid in amounts which the fluid in the urine cannot dilute. Your urine may also lack the substances which help in prevention of crystals from sticking to each other, thereby enhancing the conditions for kidney stones to form.

The balance of your urine can change due to several factors:

  1. Not drinking sufficient amount of water makes the salts, minerals and other substances present in the urine to stick together, which may lead to the formation of a stone.
  2. The normal urine balance may get disrupted due to several health conditions, which lead to kidney stone formation. Diseases such as gout or certain inflammatory bowel diseases can also cause kidney stones.
  3. Many cases of kidney stones are hereditary and run in families, affecting family members over many generations.
  4. A rare cause of kidney stone formation is the overproduction of hormones by the parathyroid glands, which results in increased levels of calcium leading to calcium kidney stones.

Types of kidney stones
Kidney stones are of different types, which occur due to several, different causes. They are as follows:

  1. Calcium stones: Calcium stones account for being the most common form of kidney stones. They occur due to excessive calcium in the urine. This may happen due to an inherited condition known as hypercalciuria, the overreaction of the parathyroid gland, kidney diseases, several cancers or from a condition known as sarcoidosis. The stones may be large and smooth or rough and spiky.
  2. Struvite stones: These stones are caused due to infections. And they usually occur after a urinary tract infection. This form of kidney stone is more common in women though.
  3. Uric acid stones: These stones occur due to large amounts of uric acid in the urine. It may occur from having a high protein diet, from a health condition called gout or from a hereditary condition where the amount of uric acid in urine increases.
  4. Cystine stones: These are rare kidney stones and occur due to a hereditary health condition known as cystinuria.

Kidney stones occur due to the change in balance of water, salts and minerals, which are present in the urine. Insufficient water consumption is often the most common cause of kidney stones. So make sure you drink lots of water to keep stone formation at bay.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear user. PENILE PAIN could be due to Infections or inflammation of the bladder or prostate can also result in penile pain. ... Trauma, persistent erection (priapism), cancers, and Peyronie's disease (the development of scar tissue within the penis) are other causes. Sickle cell anemia may cause priapism due to blockages of small blood vessels in the penis. I suggest you to consult a doctor for physical investigation. Take care.

Suffering From Kidney Problems - What Type Of Foods Must You Avoid?

Suffering From Kidney Problems - What Type Of Foods Must You Avoid?

Eating right has never been more emphasized than today where people around the world are affected by several medical conditions. Be it any condition, the diet has an essential role in effectively managing the problem, and kidney diseases are no exception.

The primary function of the kidneys is to purify the waste from the blood along with maintaining the right balance of fluids in the body. They also play a critical role in regulating blood pressure.
If your kidney functions have been impaired to the slightest extent, it is essential to shift to a diet that supports healthy blood pressure and allow you to manage the issues. This invariably means you will have to avoid excess protein, sugar, salt and trans fats.

Let’s take a look at the foods you should steer clear of when you are suffering from kidney problems.

  1. Foods high in phosphorus and potassiumDepending on the type as well as the severity of the kidney issues you are going through, you may be advised by your dietician to limit the intake of foods which contain copious amounts of phosphorus and potassium. This is because these minerals can start accumulating in the blood when the kidneys are not able to function correctly. Your doctor may also suggest you avoid salt substitutes which may contain potassium and limit rich products. You should limit the intake of avocados, milk, yogurt, bananas, and other seeds and beans. Foods rich in phosphorus include nuts, liver, soft drinks, and beans.
  2. Too much protein: Excessive protein intake may prove to be detrimental to the kidney disorders. According to the National Kidney Disease Education Program, people with chronic kidney disease should limit daily protein consumption to about 0.36 grams per pound of body weight. The moderate approach to the consumption of protein can allow about 54 grams of protein daily for a person weighing around 150 pounds.
  3. Processed foods: Fast and processed foods are said to contain high amounts of sugar, salt, and unhealthy fats. It is important to avoid them when you have kidney disorders. This means that you will have to bid farewell to crackers, chips, cookies along with frozen meals, canned soups, and other convenience foods. It is important to note here that even foods that appear to be healthy such as canned fruits and vegetables tend to contain high amounts of salt and sugar. Thus, fruits packed without added sugar is the best option for people affected by kidney diseases.
  4. Soda and Soft Drinks: Soda and soft drinks offer absolutely no nutritional benefits, but they contain hordes of sugars, which are either natural or chemically produced. Studies have shown that sodas can lead to various health conditions such as osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, kidney diseases and dental problems. Diet sodas may contain a lesser amount of calories, but they can still offer no nutritional values and often come with harmful additives that may prove detrimental to your overall health.

Thus, you should try to avoid these foods to manage your kidney disorder better.
