    Renal hypertension is a disorder, which is characterized by a rise in the blood pressure that results from kidney disease. The blood flow to the kidney is impaired due to the narrowing of the arteries and this leads to renovascular hypertension.

    The various symptoms of renal hypertension are:
    1. You may experience symptoms of high blood pressure.
    2. Your kidneys may not function properly due to the impaired supply of blood
    3. It may lead to presence of blood in your urine
    4. You may be affected by pulmonary edema that results in accumulation of fluid in the lungs
    5. It may result in severe headaches and confusion
    6. You may experience blurred vision
    7. You may have nosebleeds
    8. The impaired kidney function may also lead to chronic kidney damage.

    The various causes of renal hypertension are:
    1. Accumulation of cholesterol in the body may lead to blockage of the artery due to plaque buildup
    2. Smoking may increase your chances of getting affected by narrow arteries

    The narrowing of the arteries causes a reduction in the blood supply to the kidneys. This results in the kidneys to release various hormones that instruct the body to hold on to water and sodium. This causes the fluid to accumulate in the blood vessels, thus resulting in high blood pressure.
    The various risk factors renal hypertension are:
    1. Excessive alcohol consumption
    2. Substance abuse
    3. Diabetes
    4. High blood pressure
    5. High cholesterol
    6. Aging

    Medications used to treat high blood pressure are used to treat renal hypertension. It is important that you get your blood pressure levels checked on a regular basis. You need to make certain lifestyle changes such as:
    1. Exercise on a regular basis to keep your heart and body healthy
    2. Limit consumption of alcohol and reduce smoking
    3. Eat well balanced meals to keep obesity at bay
    4. Keep your mind free of stress
    5. Restrict consumption of salt
    6. Maintain optimal weight levels

    A pancreatic transplantation or pancreas transplantation refers to the surgical procedure, which involves replacing a dysfunctional pancreas with a healthy one. The donor of the pancreas is usually a deceased person. Pancreas is an important organ of the body as it produces several important hormones, which play significant roles regulating in our body cycles. Pancreas transplantation is usually performed for the treatment of type 1 diabetes which is linked to the inability of the pancreas to produce the insulin hormone.

    A pancreas transplant is considered as one of the potential cures for type 1 diabetes. However it is not considered to be a standard treatment due to complications, such as:
    1. Rejection of graft by the recipient body or similar complications
    2. The medications which are given to prevent the rejection can have serious side effects too
    3. Certain complications like blood clots or infections can occur following the procedure
    4. Failure to control the blood sugar levels and rejection of the graft or complete pancreatic failure are
    common complications that occur after a pancreas transplant

    These are the primary reasons why pancreas transplant is often considered to be one of the last measures of treating diabetes. Nevertheless, there are certain conditions where a pancreas transplant is worth considering. Some of the conditions include diabetes which cannot be controlled with the usual treatment procedure, chronic poor blood sugar control, insulin reactions which turns chronic or a serious kidney disease.

    Certain medications are also prescribed for anti rejection purposes. These medications need to be taken after the operation for the rest of your life to prevent rejection of the donor graft. These medications can have a few adverse side effects. Some of the side-effects include hypertension, thinning of your bones, unwanted weight gain and a rise in your cholesterol levels. Swollen gums or acne are also observed in several cases.

    Often a pancreas transplant is carried out along with a kidney transplant, especially if you have a serious kidney condition. It helps to provide a healthy kidney and a pancreas and also reduces a risk of kidney damage caused due to diabetes later in the future.

    The 4 types of kidney stones and their common symptoms

    Defined as hard and small mineral deposits that develop inside your kidney, kidney stones are made up of acid salts and minerals. The causes of this disease are not well-defined, although risk factors include drinking very little amounts of water and having a diet rich in sodium, protein and oxalate (chocolate and green leafy foods for example). However, knowing the type of kidney stone you suffer from can help ascertain the cause.

    Here are the common types of kidney stones.

    Struvite stones

    This type of kidney stone is usually a response to certain kind of infection, such as a urinary tract infection for example. Characterised by rapid growth and a large size, struvite stones can develop without any warning signs.

    Calcium stones

    These are the most common type and are caused by a diet rich in oxalate. Risk factors for calcium stones include a diet consisting of plenty of nuts, chocolates and certain fruits and vegetables; metabolic disorders, high doses of vitamin d and intestinal bypass surgery, all of which can increase the amounts of calcium or oxalate in your urine, indicating the development of kidney stones.

    Cystine stones

    Those individuals with a hereditary disorder that causes their kidneys to produce certain amino acids (cystinuria to be precise) in excess are most likely to get cystine stones.

    Uric acid stones

    These are common in those whose diets are lacking in water or those who suffer from the excess fluid loss. People with a high protein diet and those who suffer from gout are also at risk. Genetic factors play a major role as well in increasing your risk of getting uric acid stones.

    Apart from these, there are other rarer types of kidney stones that can also arise depending on a combination of an individual's lifestyle and genetic make-up.

    However, to determine whether you're suffering from any of the aforementioned types of kidney stones, you must first know its common symptoms, which are:

    excruciating pain in your sides, and back, especially below your ribs

    feelings of pain in the groin and the lower parts of your abdomen

    intense and fluctuating pain that comes and goes in waves

    pain while urinating

    urine that is red, brown or pink in colour
    urine that's cloudy or has a foul odour

    vomiting and nausea

    constant urge to urinate

    increased frequency of urination

    urinating in small amounts

    chills and fever in case of an infection

    Changes in the colour of your urine can reveal important information about your health. If your urine takes on a hue beyond what's normal, it can be indicative of something wrong with your health. In general, the normal urine colour varies from pale yellow to deep yellowish-brown, which is a result of a chemical pigment in the urine called urochrome.

    1. Red or Pink

    - When your kidneys, urethra, bladder or any other urinary tract organ gets infected or inflamed, blood cells get leaked into the urine, giving it a red hue. The causes behind the presence of blood can be urinary tract infections, kidney cysts, kidney stones, enlarged prostate and even cancer. Taking blood thinners can also cause you to have blood in your urine.
    - Certain foods like blackberries, rhubarb and beets can cause your urine to turn pink.
    - The use of certain medications like a particular class of antibiotic used in the treatment of tuberculosis can turn your urine red. Likewise, a drug used to numb discomfort in the urinary tract can cause a red/pink discoloration of your urine.

    2. Blue or Green

    - The consumption of coloured food dyes containing green or blue pigments can cause you to pass urine of such hues.
    - Certain anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory medications can turn your urine green/blue.
    - A very rare medical condition called familial benign hypercalcemia (fbh), characterised by high levels of calcium in thE blood and low levels of the mineral in the urine can cause your urine to turn blue.
    - Green urine can also occur if your urinary tract gets infected by the pseudomonas bacteria.

    3. Dark Brown

    - Having large amounts of these foods - aloe, rhubarb (a type of leafy green) and broad beans can cause you to pass dark brown urine.
    - Certain anti-malarial drugs, laxatives and muscle relaxants can darken the colour of your urine as well.
    - Dark brown urine can also be caused by disorders of the kidney or liver as well as infections of the urinary tract.
    Injury of the muscle as a result of excessive training can result in dark brown urine.

    4. Orange

    - Problems with the bile duct (the duct through which bile from the gall bladder and liver passes before entering the duodenum) or liver along with the passing of light coloured stools can result in orange urine.
    - A cause of orange urine may also be dehydration as fluids bring about a decrease in the concentration of compounds present in the urine.

    5. White

    - The presence of calcium or phosphate sediments in the urine can give it a white hue.
    - White urine can also be a result of funguria infection (a form of fungal urinary infection wherein the fungus produces white sediments) or a bacterial infection.
