Hi lybrate-user. Thanku for writing into lybrate. Women may be especially prone to utis because they have shorter urethras, which allow bacteria quick access to the bladder. Symptoms:- 1. A burning feeling when you urinate 2. A frequent or intense urge to urinate, even though little comes out when you do 3. Pain or pressure in your back or lower abdomen 4. Cloudy, dark, bloody, or strange-smelling urine 5. Feeling tired or shaky 6. Fever or chills (a sign the infection may have reached your kidneys) medications:- 1. Neeri syrup-10 ml with warm water. 2. Tab gokshuradi guggulu-2 tab daily thrice. 3. Tab c. P. Vati-2 tab daily twice. Tips:- 1. Empty your bladder frequently as soon as you feel the need to go; don't rush, and be sure you've emptied your bladder completely. 2. Wipe from front to back. 3. Drink lots of water. 4. Choose showers over baths. 5. Stay away from feminine hygiene sprays, scented douches, and scented bath products -- they'll only increase irritation. 6. Cleanse your genital area before sex. 7. Urinate after sex to flush away any bacteria that may have entered your urethra. 8. If you use a diaphragm, unlubricated condoms, or spermicidal jelly for birth control, consider switching to another method. Diaphragms can increase bacteria growth, while unlubricated condoms and spermicides can cause irritation. All can make uti symptoms more likely. 9. Keep your genital area dry by wearing cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothes. Avoid tight jeans and nylon underwear -- they can trap moisture, creating the perfect environment for bacteria growth.

Daily morning when I go to urinal all the urine comes in yellow colour. So what should I do for it?
1. It could be due to cooncentrated urine because of inadequate water intake 2. Drink plenty of water (8-10 glasses daily) 3. If it is still yellow, get your blood examined for serum bilirubin and consult physician with report.

Chronic Renal Failure - Ways Ayurveda Can Treat It!

Chronic Renal Failure - Ways Ayurveda Can Treat It!

Chronic kidney disease is defined as kidney damage or a decreased kidney glomerular filtration rate of less than 60, for 3 months or more, irrespective of the cause. This results in a progressive decline in kidney function, resulting in accumulation of toxic waste products, excess water and salts, increased blood pressure, anemia and many other complex symptoms. Chronic renal failure is divided into Stages I - V, out of which the first three stages are asymptomatic, and usually discovered incidentally, while doing routine blood tests.

Symptoms of chronic kidney disease

Most people do not have severe symptoms until the disease gets worse. However, you may:

  • Have less energy
  • Have trouble thinking clearly
  • Have a poor appetite
  • Have trouble sleeping
  • Have dry, itchy skin
  • Have muscle cramping at night
  • Have swollen feet and ankles
  • Have puffiness around your eyes, especially in the morning
  • Need to urinate more often, especially at night

The management of chronic renal failure consists of treatment of the underlying cause if possible, aggressive treatment of high blood pressure and other symptoms, liquid and diet control, cessation of smoking, and finally, with end-stage disease, resorting to dialysis or a kidney transplant.

The Ayurvedic treatment of chronic renal failure is based on three principles:

  • Treating the damaged kidneys
  • Treating the body tissues (dhatus) which make up the kidneys and
  • Treating the known cause.

For patients with chronic renal failure intending to take Ayurvedic treatment (or for that matter, any alternative treatment), the following points should be kept in mind:

  1. All patients should be under the regular supervision and treatment of a qualified and experienced Urologist

  2. Ayurvedic medicines should be taken in the form of additional treatment, and should not replace other, regular treatment or dialysis.

The advantage of using Ayurvedic medicines in chronic renal failure is that in most patients, the kidney damage can be either partly or fully reversed, the frequency of dialysis can be reduced, and the increased risk of death from cardiovascular diseases can be significantly reduced. Thus, Ayurvedic medicines have the potential for an important therapeutic contribution in all the stages of this condition. We are treating Kidney patients with excellent results. We have developed specific Panchakarma treatment protocol and specific medicines for kidney patients. 2 to 3 weeks Panchakarma treatments specially Basti karma, Shirodhara, abhayangam with medicated oil and special Ayurvedic diet plan gives tremendous relief. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!​

Acute Kidney Failure - What Should You Do In Such A Case?

Acute Kidney Failure - What Should You Do In Such A Case?

Acute kidney failure is the kidney's inability to filter waste from the blood. As soon as the kidney loses the filtering ability, a humungous amount of body waste gets accumulated in the kidney and the chemical makeup of the body goes out of balance. Kidney or renal failure can progress tremendously from hours to days. This is a condition that is mostly witnessed in critical patients who are already hospitalized. This condition can prove to be fatal but can be reversed with treatment and medication. Here is a list of things one should do whilst suffer from kidney failure:

Lifestyle and dietary adjustments
During the phase of recovery, the medical team might assist a patient to go a special diet and limit the activity of the kidney so that they get the required time to heal. A nephrologist often routes this cases to a dietician or carefully analyses the present diet to lock up on the diet required for a speedy recovery:
Lower amount of potassium in food: Food with low potassium content is often recommended by the doctor. It ensures that kidney does not stress itself. Foods to avoid include spinach, bananas, oranges, tomato and potato. Some of the foods that need to be included in the diet are cabbage, strawberries, apples and grapes. Furthermore, food must be consumed in small quantities but in multiple servings.
Limit the amount of phosphorus in food: Phosphorus is found in abundant quantities in food items such as peanut butter, milk, dried beans, cheese and nuts. Along with skin itchiness, phosphorus can weaken the bone as well. A dietitian might share special instructions on how to cut down the amount of phosphorus and the substitute food to counter the effect of the above-mentioned ones.

Avoid salty products: It is extremely necessary to cut down food items that contain an excess amount of salt in it. Food products such as the canned soup, frozen dinner, and fast food are the major culprits in worsening the condition. Processed meats and cheese are equally bad.

Preventive measures to avoid kidney failure:

  1. OTC pain medications: It is necessary to check the label of over the counter pain medications. Consumption of too many OTC medications can result in kidney failure. A pre-existing kidney condition can further aggravate this condition.
  2. A healthy lifestyle: A sensible lifestyle with simple diet can do wonders for a kidney to be healthy in the long-term. Some of the other things to keep in mind include doing regular exercise, refrain from alcohol or drug abuse and remain active throughout the day.
  3. Consult a doctorEven a hint of a kidney problem should be discussed with a doctor to ensure that even the smallest of problems can be addressed at the earliest.

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