You need to get right medications for urine infection based on urine test results. A USG KUB could though provide additional information and also rule out any underlying pathology.

To treat the incontinence of urine- *Take very less ampunt of fluid after 6 pm & go for urination after every hour. * Do urination before bed time & wake up in the midnight for urination. * During daytime, while you are urinating, once take a pause then start urinating again & repeat it 2-3 times. It increase the muscle tone of bladder muscle. * Sit in the possition of PADMASANA or SIDHASANA in morning for 8-10 minutes.

Hello sir urine mein infection k liye kya dwai leni chahiye please help me sir.
Dear , for uti get urine tested. If pus cells are more than 5 then only you need antibiotic for at least 15 days. However if recurrent attacks you need to get urine culture and suitable drugs as per report should be taken till urine report is clear. At the same time one think of investigation so as to find the actual cause for recurrent attacks. In any case drink plenty of fluids.

I have got a small calculus in my right Kidney about 3.5 cms. Can I ignore it or should I take medication?

I have got a small calculus in my right Kidney about 3.5 cms. Can I ignore it or should I take medication?
If you ignore it will become much more bigger. Immediately consult a health expert. Dietary modifications does play an important role to rectify renal stones... 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. Take personalised expert dietary advice. Thanku.

Hi, prevention of kidney stones may include a combination of lifestyle changes and medications. Lifestyle changes you may reduce your risk of kidney stones if you: drink water throughout the day. For people with a history of kidney stones, drink 12-14 glasses of water everyday. If you live in a hot, dry climate or you exercise frequently, you may need to drink even more water to produce enough urine. If your urine is light and clear, you're likely drinking enough water. 1 eat fewer oxalate-rich foods. If you tend to form calcium oxalate stones, restrict foods rich in oxalates. These include rhubarb, beets, bhindi (okra), spinach, swiss chard, sweet potatoes, nuts, tea, chocolate and soy products. Choose a diet low in salt and animal protein. Reduce the amount of salt you eat and choose non animal protein sources, such as legumes. Consider using a salt substitute. Continue eating calcium-rich foods, but use caution with calcium supplements. Calcium in food doesn't have an effect on your risk of kidney stones. Continue eating calcium-rich foods unless your doctor advises otherwise. Ask your doctor before taking calcium supplements, as these have been linked to increased risk of kidney stones. You may reduce the risk by taking supplements with meals. Diets low in calcium can increase kidney stone formation in some people. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine - berberis vulgaris q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks. Revert me back.

The frequent urination may be due to urinary tract infection. Please ask your mother to drink more water and fruit juice which helps clear away the bacteria from the tract. Also get an urine r/e m/e done and share the reports with me so that I can help you with medications.
