Avoid milk n other dairy products - as their calcium content wud might increase the number n size of stone. Also start using'kulattha ki daal" - natural stone crusher. Drink coconut water regularly - very good diuretic. It wud not allow stone formation in body.

Hello, if your reports are normal you need detailed physical examination for your problem. By the time avoid junk food, spicy food specially green chilly. Eat watermelon sprinkled with black pepper and rock salt daily for 2-3 days but before 6 pm, drink coconut water. Soak raw jeera, saunf and shana each 1 tsf in 1 lit water at night. Next day morning filter it and drink 1-1 glass for whole day. Add again 1 lit of water in that mixture in the morning only and filter it in evening and drink till next morning. This will help in your urine problem. Regards.

Dear lybrateuser, - It is normal in winters to pass urine mire frequently after drinking water, since there is very little sweating in winters the bulk of water & other fluid wastes are passed in urine.

Please get renal function test done. If they are normal nothing to be done except that the cause of shrinkage needs to evaluated to prevent further agrevation. Complete body profile should be done like hemogram, blood sugar, blood pressure, urine tests etc.

Kidney Stones - Are They Really Common?

Kidney Stones - Are They Really Common?

The kidneys may be a pair of small organs but they perform a very important function. Without the kidneys, it is impossible to filter blood and remove toxins from the body. One of the common problems associated with kidneys is the development of a kidney stone. This can be described as a hard, pebble like substance that is formed when urine contains high levels of certain minerals. Kidney stones vary in size and shape. Small stones may pass through the ureter into the bladder and out of the body with minimal discomfort. However, in some cases, a kidney stone can be as large as a golf ball. In such cases, it can block the urine flow and cause extreme amounts of pain as well as bleeding. In such cases, a doctor needs to be consulted as early as possible.

There are four different types of kidney stones.

  1. Calcium Stones: This is the most common type of kidney stones. It is caused by excess calcium that is not flushed out with the urine.
  2. Uric acid stones: Highly acidic urine can trigger the development of such stones. This may be caused by excessive consumption of meat, fish and shell fish.
  3. Struvite stones: This is often formed as a side effect of Urinary tract infections. These stones may develop and grow rapidly.
  4. Cystine stones: These stones are formed as a result of a genetic disorder known as cystinuria. This disorder causes an amino acid known as cysteine to leak into the urine.

Kidney stones are a fairly common occurrence. It affects both men and women but men have a higher risk of developing kidney stones as compared to women. Other risk factors that can influence kidney stones are:

  1. Family history of kidney stones
  2. Not drinking enough water
  3. Obesity
  4. Digestive problems
  5. Recurrent UTIs
  6. Gout
  7. Bowel inflammation
  8. Disease that causes blockage of the urinary tract
  9. Certain medications such as diuretics or calcium based antacids

Once a person has been diagnosed with a kidney stone, this issue can recur. Treatment for kidney stones depends on the type of stones, size and location. In most cases, medication is prescribed to help break the stone down into smaller parts so that it can pass through urine. In extreme cases, surgery may be required. If not treated in time, it can cause severe pain, bloody urine, UTIs that can further lead to kidney failure and reduced kidney functioning.

Kidney stones can be prevented by drinking plenty of fluids and making a few dietary changes. Ideally, a person should have a minimum of 8-10 glasses of water a day. If you have a high risk of developing any type of kidney stones, reduce your sodium consumption and the amount of meat eaten. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear , as your kidney functions are normal, I think one has to consider possibilities. I suppose kidney function test would include usg also. If not then get usg done of abdomen and pelvis with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness on full bladder and post-void residual urine volume. If it shows residual urine or bladder wall thickness increased then uroflowmetry. This would confirm or rule out obstruction. Please post these reports to me here and then we can proceed. However if all these test turn normal then it could be girdle pain due to problem in spine with compression neuropathy. Third possibility could be long sitting hours at work and faulty posture-if so nucoxia Mr. After meals would help. Let me see the reports.

Hi i  am having Urine leakage slightly after urination few drops of urine is coming.
you may be either not drinking enough water due to which your bladder muscles are not sufficiently toned so as to control the leakage ,or you may be having UTI due to which the control on urination gets a bit inhibited

About 80% of all kidney stones are composed of calcium and other minerals, usually a combination of calcium and oxalate. In some cases dietary adjustments help to prevent the recurrence of these types of stones. Increase fluid intake: This is the most important preventive measure for all patients who develop kidney stones. It hinders the formation of stones by diluting the urine. The biggest portion of calcium in the diet comes from milk and foods made from large amounts of milk, such as cheeses and yogurt, dark greeny vegetables. Too much may cause calcium stones. Sugar, sodium, and animal protein: It has been found that too much of these may also aggravate the development of calcium or calcium oxalate stones. A diet high in animal protein affects certain minerals in the urine that may promote the formation of kidney stones. Insoluble fiber also speeds up movement of substances through the intestine, so there will be less time for calcium to be absorbed. When vitamin C is used by the body, oxalate is produced. Fatty liver may cause enlargement of the liver, also result in symptoms such as fever, confusion and jaundice, or yellowing of the skin. Adopt a diet consisting of about 75 percent organic raw fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. Adopt a diet consisting of about 75 percent organic raw fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. Prescription for Nutritional Healing, raw, organic plant foods introduce fewer toxins into the body than cooked foods. This may reduce the workload on the liver, allowing it to clear out fatty deposits and regenerate healthy cells. Add turmeric to soups, curries. Turmeric, this spice contains a chemical, called curcumin, that may help protect the liver against damage caused by accumulated fats. It may also aid in the regeneration of liver cells and the removal of fats. The Healing Herbs, anise seeds may stimulate the regeneration of healthy liver cells, allowing the liver to flush out excess fats. Add beans and legumes, such as chickpeas, kidney beans, soybeans and peas, to your diet. These foods contain arginine, an amino acid that helps neutralize ammonia, which is a toxic byproduct created by the body during the digestion process. Detoxification of ammonia may reduce stress on the liver. Proper hydration may help cleanse the liver of fats and toxins.
