Respected Madam 1.Dark chocolates and dry fruits like cashew nuts and almonds have high oxalate content. It is better to restrict high oxalate containing foods in stone forming patients. 2.Also processed foods like packaged dry fruits have high salt content which is another risk factor for stone formation. Hope this helps Thanks.

Hello, you are suffering from hypertrophy of urinery bladder. Go for kejal exercise to check dribbling of urine. An urge  to urinate that is so strong you can't reach the toilet in time due to pelvic floor  weakness. •select pelvic muscles you use to stop urinating. Squeeze these muscles for 3 seconds. Then relax for 3 seconds. •stomach and thigh muscles should not be tighten when you do this. •.Add 1 second each week until you are able to squeeze for 10 seconds each time. •Repeat this exercise 10 to 15 times per session. Try to do this at least 3 times a day. Avoid doing  Kegels while you urinate this might be  damaging. Tk, homoeopathic medicine:@ Causiticum 1000-6 pills, weekly. Tk care.

Dear, generally speaking what advice you have been given is correct and I do not have anything to add there but as a urologist I would think that passing blood in urine after straining of any sort amy it be dancing ou exercises or physical game, it suggests some pathology in kidneys initially get usg done with full bladder volume, wall thickness on full bladder and post void residual urine, obstruction, infection or stone or any other pathology must be ruled out.

Dear , in this hot summer one perspires a lot hence what you drink is not enough. So you are passing concentrated urine hence colour is dark yellow. Irritation in your stomach is what that you will have to describe. Is it more on empty stomach or after food? if this could be due to acidity. Drink plenty of ice cool water and see what happens.

I have got small stones in kidney. So what precautions should I take to get rid of stones.

MBBS
General Physician,
I have got small stones in kidney. So what precautions should I take to get rid of stones.
There are several medicines for dissolving stones but treatment depend on size type and cause of formation of stone. Prevention of renal stones also depend on type of stone. Also there are various diseases and drugs that can predispose to stone formation. A usg, complete metabolic panel and urine cytology and ph check up is needed in young aged patients. To prevent oxalate stones thats very commonly found you need to restrict oxalate rich foods like: peanuts, rhubarb, spinach, beets, chocolate and sweet potatoes. To prevent uric acid stones, cut down on high-purine foods such as red meat, organ meats, and shellfish, and follow a healthy diet that contains mostly vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and low fat dairy products. Limit sugar-sweetened foods and drinks, especially those that contain high fructose corn syrup. Limit alcohol because it can increase uric acid levels in the blood and avoid crash diets for the same reason. Eating less animal-based protein and eating more fruits and vegetables will help decrease urine acidity and this will help reduce the chance for stone formation. Take plenty of water also.

Urine Incontinence Can be Controlled

Kegel exercises can do wonders. They can actually make your pelvic floor muscles strong. This can control your bladder leakage.
To get started, find the right muscles. To identity your pelvic floor muscles, stop urination in midstream.

1) Find the muscles you use to stop urinating.
2) Squeeze these muscles for 3 seconds and then realise for 3 seconds.
3) Add one second each week until you are able to squeeze for 10 seconds each time.
4) Repeat this exercise for 10 to 15 times per session
5) Don't do kegel while you urinate.

Hi sir mai jab peshab karta hoo to last me ek do drops ho jati hai reson kya hai.

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
Hi sir mai jab peshab karta hoo to last me ek do drops ho jati hai reson kya hai.
1.It is a common find in some people and the cause is not known. However one should know that urethra is not a straight tube. It has a "s" shaped curve and some times few drops of urine accumulate at the curve which drips after urination. Try milking the urethra (simple shaking of penis will not help) by applying pressure at a point behind the scrotum where you can yourself feel the urethra like a tube. Accumulated drops of urine will come out 2.Do keggel exercise Keggel exercise is a pelvic floor exercise. A) contract the muscle which you use to stop urinating b.squeeze for 3 sec, relax for 3 sec c).repeat 10-15 times per session d).Do it 3 times daily. 3.consult doctor for further advice.
