Urine can be yellowish if you consume less quantity of water. So plenty of water is required to intake everyday & fruit juice also.

Hi, On Dialysis .Having bp. Thyroid. Tests done for potassium phosphorus it's high HB is 7 Creatinine after Dialysis not coming down it's 10 now Twice Dialysis in a week.Please suggest me something.

lybrate-user As your kidneys are not working you have waste product made by body in blood, which is now cleaned by dialysis by filter. As everyday waste product is made cleaning of blood needed regularly. Scientifically thrice dialysis per week can maintain body. So creatinine once comes down on dialysis but the minute it's stopped waste starts accumulating again. It's regular process.

Dear lybrate-user, benign hypertrophy of prostate is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland. In this clinical condition multiple nodules are formed inside the prostrate gland. These nodules often compress the urethra resulting in the narrowing of the lumen of urethra & producing a resistance to the urine flow. Resistance to urine flow requires the bladder to work harder during voiding, possibly leading to progressive enlargement, instability, or weakness of the urinary bladder the patient must follow the given medication as directed:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic causticum 30 at early morning daily before brushing teeth 2) 5 drops of homoeopathic conium mac 30 before going to bath daily. 3) 5 drops of homoeopathic baryta carb 30 just one hour before dinner daily. 4) homoeopathic mother tincture sabal serrulata q, 30 drops, twice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. Along with the aforesaid medication few changes in the lifestyle of the patient are also necessary. Lifestyle alterations to address the symptoms include decreasing fluid intake before bedtime, moderating the consumption of alcohol and caffeine-containing products, and following a timed voiding schedule. Also it would be better if the patient could void the urine in sitting position.

Dribbling of urine can be due to either urinary tract infection or due to prostate en largement or other causes. Need to perform some investigations like urine routine (microscopy and culture sensitivity ), sugar (fasting and PP), PSA for prostate. Consult a urologist for the same.

What is your weight/your haemoglobin? Are you married? have kids? in young age passing of sperms during straining at stool is common, it does not cause any weakness. No need to worry.

You are dehydrated and your concentrated urine may promote urinary infection. So start drinking more water to keep the urine dilute. Get a Urine analysis done to confirm an infection and accordingly a culture test if necessary as per the report. For now you can start drinking a Syrup Cital 15 ml diluted in a glass of water after meals, twice a day till the burning senation stops and the reports arrive.
