I read your problem. In this case you have to take plenty of water. And avoid spicy food. And in the white spot without image I can't give proper diagnosis and treatment to you. But there is a best treatment in homoeopathic so don't worry.

Please get a urine c/s done. You need to recommence on an antibiotic depending on sensitivity. And then continue long term on a lower dose to prevent re-infection. Also I would suggest you get a fbg and ppbg done to rule out diabetes. Have about three l water daily, use a urinary vitamin like cranmed and use condoms during sex.

Thank you for the query autosomal dominant polycyclic kidney disease, presents very commonly with 3 features - hematuria (blood in urine), pain in the loins (due to increasing kidney size) and hypertension. Often fever may occur due to infection of the cysts. Please get a serum urea and creatinine done to check the kidney status and a urine for routine examination. Ultrasonography may be done once a year at least to check the progression of the disease. You need to consult a nephrologist for further advise. Continue with her cardiac medications and get her bp checked at regular intervals. Regards

General precautions for stones: 1. Drink lot of fluids (keep urine colourless & urine volume per 24 hr > 1.5 to 2 liters) 2. Reduce salt intake 3. Reduce intake of animal proteins These three things are universal for any kidney stone. If you are taking calcium supplements for bone health, try taking calcium citrate preparation since citrate prevent stone formation. Take calcium supplements along with meals and not in empty stomach. Milk and milk containing products must also be taken along with meals to prevent excessive calcium absorption which can promote stones. However, regular milk/calcium supplement is required. Other things you should follow are: - Increase fruit intake (except grapes) - Decrease coffee, tea, soft drinks, nuts and chocolate

Urinary disorders are very common in women. If untreated at the earlier stage it can lead to severe complications like pyelonephritis, hydronephrosis, or renal failure. Urinary incontinence is mainly due to poor muscle functions of pelvic floor and also some neurogenic cause. So we have to treat the cause by medicines and exercise like kiegel properly which clear the condition very fastly. Burning sensation while passing urine is due to uti (urinary tract infection) which is mainly due to lack of drinking water in normal amount and also improper hygiene. All sorts of urinary disorders can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines if properly taken as per the instructions of a qualified homoeopath either direct consultation or online. Homoeopathic medicines doesn't contain any side effects at all. 100% rapid and permanent results. No diet restrictions in homoeopathy, only coffee should avoid while taking medicines. Medicines like can notharis, apis, berberis, lycopodium, hydrangea etc are very good medicines to treat various urinary disorders according symptoms presented by the patient.

Hi my friend consumed 30herfem tabs containing 100 mg elemental iron per day for 3 days. He had nausea and vomiting. But later he is fine. A week after that he was diagnosed with LFT (Liver Function Test) and serum creatinine everything is normal. This was happened 2 weeks ago. But now he's feeling weak slightly nausea and no hungry. So isn't he safe now. Is he still affected by iron overdose?

May not be as long as he stopped consuming iron. Iron toxicity is more of acute in nature and he must have just scrapped through. He must have been some 50 kg or more. Please check serum iron.

Hello. Darker urine is usually a sign that you're not drinking enough fluid. Certain medications can turn the urine fluorescent green or blue, vitamins can give it a yellow hue. Yellow urine may also there in jaundice. Certain food also turns the colour of urine yellow like beetroot. Blood in the urine, also known as Haematuria, can cause darker urine. Haemolytic Anemia can cause dark yellow urine color. Hepatitis (inflammation of liver) can cause a darker urine color. So, get your urine tested and blood tested for CBC & LFT done.

Mr. lybrate-user. You are lucky In spite of enlarged prostate you don't have any urinary problem. I suggest you to be careful in winter season as prostatic engorgement increases and some people who are having prostatism I mean who have urinary problems may increase a bit so take bath with Warm water don't move outside in cold days and forget about any treatment till you have symptoms. For blockages in coronary vessels Take yoga classes and do it regularly it will also improve. See your physician if you have blood pressure or diabetes.
