Hi lybrate-user, a 11 mm stone will definitely need some medications in addition to dietary changes for dissolution. If there is hydronephrosis (swelling in kidney), do not delay endoscopic treatment. Otherwise, you can try some medications and dietary changes. Most important things to dissolve kidney stones are to keep your kidneys healthy and keep healthy urine flowing. How to keep the kidneys healthy? 1. Prevent or control hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and diabetes. 2. Exercise regularly; at least 30 min per day. 3. Take adequate natural vitamins and minerals in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables (except moderation in leafy vegetables, beans and tomato) 4. Reduce salt intake (<4 g /day). 5. Reduce animal protein (chicken, mutton, fish, milk etc) intake. How to keep your urine healthy? 1. Drink 3 to 4 litre of fluids/day to keep urine output > 2 to 2.5 litre/day. Make sure that your urine is not yellowish. 2. Increase good minerals like citrate, potassium and magnesium in urine. All these are abundant in fruits, especially citrus fruits like lemon and orange. 3. Decrease bad minerals like calcium, oxalate, uric acid and sodium in urine. 4. Do not reduce calcium intake too much. Calcium is required for bones, teeth, muscles etc. Moreover, too much reduction in calcium increases oxalate in urine leading to stones. 2 small glasses of milk per day is acceptable. 5. Non-vegetarian diet increases uric acid production. Reduce them. 6. Tea, coffee, tomato, greens, chocolate and beans are rich in oxalate. Moderation is required. With all these dietary modifications your kidneys may still be excreting large amounts of bad minerals and less of good minerals due to genetic predisposition. These can be checked in 24 hour urine tests. If so, you may need some special medications to prevent stones. However, if the size of stone is not decreasing after 3 months of medicines and food control, it is better to get it removed endoscopically, since it is a little larger to get dissolved easily.

Moderate hydronephrosis RT. Kidney witj 0.83 CM .RT. Lower ureteric calculus at the rt. Vesico - ureteric junction.
hydronephrosis is due to obstruction in the ureter caused by impacted stone. once the stone would be expelled, kidneys would be fine again

Greetings ma'am, foamy urine is seen in proteinuria; a condition in which the kidneys may be responsible for the loss of protein. However there are varieties of conditions in which one may have proteinuria. Advice - get a complete urine examination done with special emphasis on proteinuria. A qualitative analysis of the urine specimen is more reliable. However for all practical purposes I would recommend good hydration and also to refrain from intense physical exercise for a week and see the changes (which could be the reason). If the foaming persists please go ahead and get the tests done. Also bodybuilders are prone to over supplementation of supplemental proteins (protein powders) which may also lead to proteinuria sometimes. Thanks.

Hello- a normal platelet count in a healthy person ranges from 150, 000 to 450, 000 platelets per microlitre of blood. When the count is below 150, 000 per microlitre, it is considered a low platelet count. There are three possible causes of low platelet count: #presence of platelets in the spleen due to cancer or severe liver diseases. This causes a decrease in the number of platelets in circulation. #reduced production of platelets due to leukemia, some types of anemia, viral infections, exposure to toxic chemicals, chemotherapy drugs, heavy alcohol consumption and deficiency of essential vitamins like vitamin b12. #increased breakdown of platelets due to autoimmune diseases, reaction to medicines, bacterial infection in the blood, pregnancy and health problems like idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (itp) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (ttp). Here are the top 10 ways to increase a low platelet count naturally. 1. Papaya 2. Wheatgrass 3. Pumpkin 4. Spinach 5. Vitamin c to increase your platelet count, you need to increase your intake of vitamin c, also known as ascorbic acid. 6. Indian gooseberries 7. Sesame oil 8. Beetroot 9. Water blood cells are made of water and protein, hence it is highly recommended to drink plenty of water throughout the day. When it comes to a low platelet count, avoid drinking cold water as it can affect your digestive tract and the body will not absorb nutrients properly. Instead, drink filtered and purified water that is room temperature. This will help your body produce more blood cells and eventually improve the platelet count. Drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of room temperature water daily. 10. Exercise.

It can be a reccurence which is quite common after renal stone treatment. First you need a fresh ultrasound KUB and urine test. For pain you can take any analgesic with antispasmodic. Drink plenty of fluid.

Dear lybrate-user. Please understand that small stones usually less than 5 mm pass on their own and larger stones have less chance of getting out. But since you mention many stones proper investigations are required to see the cause and chance of stone removal. Most of times small stones if not causing any problem in kidney can be dealt with proper medical management and surgery is not required.

This condition is called stress urinary incontinence. Your mother needs to be assessed by a urologist for any associated prolapse of urethra or bladder. Treatment in early stages is pelvic floor strengthening exercises (kegel's exercises) and medications. If severe, it can be cured by a minor procedure called transobturator tension free vaginal tape.

1) Drink plenty of clean water.- Drinking at least four liters of water every day will not only help prevent kidney stones from forming, but also quickly eliminate any small stones that may have already formed. 2) Add fresh lemon, lime and apple cider vinegar to daily beverages. -Taking this a step further, adding fresh lemon or lime juice, or apple cider vinegar, to your beverages throughout the day will help alkalize your body, effectively blocking the formation of kidney stones. These alkalizing juices will also help quickly dissolve any existing stones that might be present in your kidneys, keeping them clean and stone-free. 3) Eat foods that are naturally high in calcium - Dietary calcium actually binds with calcium oxalate, the substance that makes up most kidney stones, and crystallizes and flushes it from the body before it has a chance to form into stones. The best foods in this category include leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables, nuts and seeds, and raw, grass-fed milk and butter 4) Supplement with magnesium citrate, B vitamins every day-, Be sure to eat plenty of magnesium-rich foods every day -- these include avocados, broccoli, raw cacao, beans, bananas, and lentils 5) Stick to a 'low oxalate' diet. - Eliminate high oxalate foods from your diet if you have a propensity for kidney stones. Such foods include black tea, grains, and certain nuts and vegetables.

Drink lots of water and fluids in the day say approximately three to three and a half litre get your urine tested for pus cells after 15 days and if it still shows pus cells, go for urine culture and sensitivity test and take the appropriate antibiotics recommend by the doctor alternatively you can send your urine culture and sensitivity report I can guide you for treatment.
