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.

Diet Tips After You Get Your Kidney Stones Removed

Diet Tips After You Get Your Kidney Stones Removed

Kidney stones could be a cause for worry by the time they are not removed causing incessant and regular pains and disrupting normal life. The task is not finished even if you get them removed because what follows is a rigorous and disciplined routine that you must follow to maintain your health after the surgery is done. Diet plays a crucial role in negating the possibility of yet another stone accumulation. Here are a few diet tips that would be handy if you have got a kidney stones removal surgery done. 
 
Do's

  1. To stay hydrated is the golden rule that you must abide by at all costs. It is advisable to drink at least 2-3 litres of water on a daily basis. Water prevents the formation of stones and would also help to eliminate any remaining residues of kidney stones existing in the system.
  2. Dairy products could be included but in diluted form. 
  3. A fixed dietary routine is mandatory above all. The patient should be given meals at proper time intervals in small proportions. Heavy meals should be avoided at all costs. 
  4. Foods rich in high fibre should be included in the diet. They help in bowel movement also. These include whole grain breads and beans. 

Don'ts
 1. Foods rich in oxalates and calcium should be kept at bay for at least a period of two months after the stone removal procedure is complete. Oxalates can lead to the formation of yet another stone which is far from desirable. The foods that fall in this category include:

  • Green leafy vegetables like spinach, mustard and beet greens
  • Cabbage, cauliflower, tomatoes
  • Banana, mango, apricot, grapes
  • Nuts like almond and cashew
  • Alcohol
  • Soft drinks
  • Soda
  • Caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee 

2. Foods rich in sodium should be kept at bay for at least some time immediately after the surgery. 
 
3. Reducing the food intake that is high on animal protein. 
 
4. Do not eat stale food. 

5. Junk food should not even cross your mind. It is something which should be avoided for best results. 
 
These are generic guidelines that would help you to cope with post surgery care. However, there could be specific requirements depending from patient to patient. Therefore, it is advisable to get the guidelines by a doctor who will take into account the specificities of the case. Diet along with exercise is in most cases, the most effective combat to kidney stones. The trick however, is to not go overboard with either of them.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones.

Kidney Stones Risks and Their Prevention

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
General Physician, Delhi
Kidney Stones Risks and Their Prevention

Kidney Stones

What are kidney stones


Kidney stones are tiny, hard masses that form inside the kidneys. These stones are made of acid salts and minerals.

Causes

Kidney stones may get created when an imbalance of minerals, salts, water and other materials found in urine occurs. Things that cause the imbalance include:

Insufficient drinking of water
Different types of medical conditions

A person can form kidney stones due to his/her family history as stones frequently occur within the family over several generations.

In rare cases, kidney stones are formed due to excessive production of a hormone by the parathyroid glands.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a kidney stone may not be found until it proceeds to the ureter or moves around inside the kidney. When any of these occur, the following symptoms can be noted:

Pain that advances to the groin and lower abdomen
Acute pain in back and side, beneath the ribs
Brown, pink or red colored urine
Pain on urination
Vomiting and nausea
Foul-smelling or cloudy urine
More urination than normal
Continual need of urination
Urinating little amounts of urine
Fever and chills when there is an infection
Diagnosis

If the presence of a kidney stone is suspected by the doctor, the following diagnostic procedures and tests may be prescribed:

Blood tests
Imaging tests
Urine tests
Examination of passed stones
Diagnosis

Treatment

Treatment for kidney stones differs, depending upon the cause and type of stone. Most kidney stones can be cured by home treatments and don't require invasive treatment. Home treatments include:

Drinking enough water
Use of pain relievers

If conservative measures fail to treat kidney stones, extensive treatment may be required. Such procedures can include:

ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy)
Surgery
Use of ureteroscope
Parathyroid gland surgery

Prevention and controllable risk factors

A merger of medications and lifestyle changes may help prevent the formation of kidney stones.

Medications can help maintain the balance of acid and minerals in the urine. They can also be helpful for those having certain types of stones.

Lifestyle changes too can help prevent this disease. They include:

Drinking water round the clock.
Having diets low in animal protein and salt.
Avoiding oxalate-rich foods.

Controllable risk factors that elevate the risk of forming kidney stones include:

Intake of diets high in sodium, protein and sugar. A high-sodium diet is especially risky as excessive sodium in your diet increases the quantity of calcium your kidneys must filter, thus significantly boosting your risk of kidney stones.
Dehydration: Inadequate intake of water increases your risk of kidney stones. People who sweat a lot and those living in warm climates are at higher risk than their counterparts in other, more comfortable regions.
Being obese: Several studies have linked weight gain, large waist size and high BMI (body mass index) to an increased risk of kidney stones.

A merger of medications and lifestyle changes may help prevent the formation of kidney stones.

Medications can help maintain the balance of acid and minerals in the urine. They can also be helpful for those having certain types of stones.

Please check if you are having abdominal worms or not first. Secondly many a times the urine culture report is negative still the problem persists...this is due to the fact that the bacteria are high in the urinary passage. Moreover if you are Diabetic then you should always maintain hygiene and keep your blood sugar levels normal (by diet-restriction/medicines). Lifestyle changes matter because they can help you recover from a UTI and might prevent another infection: Quit smoking Wear loose cotton clothing and underwear Wipe yourself clean from front to back Choose only fragrance-free personal hygiene products Homeopathic medicines can help you -- do get back to me for treatment of the same.

This is within normal limits and drink more water and see the colour of urine the normal serum creatinine range for men is 0.5-1.5 mg/dl. The normal range for women is 0.6-1.2 mg/dl. Creatinine clearance is a test sometimes used to estimate filtering capacity of the kidneys. The amount of creatinine in your urine is compared to the amount of creatinine in your blood.
