Tips for removing kidney stones: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send your usg report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after usg.

I am 23 years old female. I am worried with the change in colour of urine. First urination early in the morning is yellowish but during the rest of the day its colour is white. I don't know since when this is happening. I noticed it 2 months ago. I am also facing problem in defecation, I mean it's not regular since last one month and its hard. But there is no pain during urination or defecation. What should I do? Is white colour of urine normal or am I heading towards a big problem?

Dear lybrate user normally urine is straw coloured but if intake of water is less it may be dark yellowish and whitish when water intake is more since no pain, burning or fever is there it may not be any infection so drink plenty of water more vegetables and whole fruits and still if this tendency persists you need internal constitutional treatment for cure.

Some persons are prone to stone formation. There might be some metabolic abnormalities like hyperuricemia, hypercalciuria etc. However high fluid intake, reduced animal protein intake, reduced salt intake and increased citrus fruit intake may help to prevent recurrence of stones.

Mr. lybrate-user. Stricture can develop in urethra after instrumentation but infection chances are also there so get your urine complete examination done if pus cells present get the urine culture done and then see your treating doctor.

Sir, at your age these urinary symptoms are most commonly associated with a condition known as benign hypertrophy of prostate gland. There might also be possible of a mild urinary tract infection which might be responsible for your symptoms. Get a usg of kubp region done to know about your prostate size to determine whether it requires medical or surgical or no treatment at all. Regarding the problem of breathlessness, this may be related to your heart. I see that you are taking antihypertensive drug. Do you get regular follow up with your blood pressure? consult me privately to get a look into both of your problems so that can help you:)

It may be because of infection or sometimes you cannot find a rwason. Which is called idiopathic. Try taking homoeopathic medicine Arsenicum album 30 3 doses 1 hourly and wait for 2 days.

Peritoneal Dialysis - Procedure to be Followed!

DM - Nephrology, MD-Medicine, MBBS

Peritoneal Dialysis - Procedure to be Followed!

No Blood, No needle, No visit to hospital, you can do yourself at home with water. A thin layer of transparent screen like structure hangs in front of the abdominal muscles known as peritoneum. This peritoneum protects the abdominal structures and the muscle. This can also be used for performing dialysis which is carried out when the functioning of kidney gets affected. In peritoneal dialysis a thin and soft catheter is placed in the person’s belly one week before performing the procedure.

The catheter has numerous holes in order to facilitate the transformation of fluids. Dialysis solution is prepared in a bag and the tubing is connected to the catheter placed in the abdomen thereby, the fluids absorb the waste materials from the body. The fluid is allowed to stay in your body for a particular period of time which is commonly referred as dwell time and later the fluid is drained out.

There are two types of peritoneal dialysis, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis and automated peritoneal dialysis. This is the simple form of dialysis which anybody can perform after a short training period and this can be done anywhere in clean private place like hotels, home and even in office.

Procedure followed during Peritoneal Dialysis
All you need to perform a peritoneal dialysis is catheter and transfer set, cycler, dialysis solution and safety precautions materials to stay away from getting infections.
Step 1 - Perform a sterile aseptic technique. Wear a glove and surgical mask before connecting the catheters and transfer set. Clamp the tubing and remove the catheter once the dialysis solution enters your abdomen
Step 2 - Allow the solution to remain in your abdomen for a particular period of dwell time
Step 3 - Drain the fluid from the abdominal cavity into the drain bag. You may feel a mild tugging sensation when adequate amount of fluid is drained.
Step 4 - After drain close or clamp the transfer set and later flush a fresh solution directly to drain bag so as to remove the air from the tubing.
Step 5 - Close your drain bag and open your transfer set and refill your belly with fresh solution.

Make sure you perform without giving way for infection and excess fluid and dextrose absorption. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
