Hello- generally kidney stones below 7 mm can pass through your urinary system with proper precautions and medications and you don't need to go for any surgical procedure. >but if the patient is not following precautions, thn stone may complicate leading to strong pain and bleeding (due to obstruction of urinary pathway). Try these precautions and ayurvedic medicines- 1) neeri syp 1 tsp twice daily. 2) tab cytone himalaya 1 tab twice daily. 3) tab chandraprabha vati 1 tab twice daily. 4) drink plenty of boiled water. 5) strictly avoid-non-veg, fast foods, green leafy vegetables, spicy diet, alcohol and late night workout. 6) practice pawanmuktasana at morning time (it will prevent stone obstruction and make the stone break into fragments and pass on through urine)

Urinary (Renal/Kidney) Stones Facts

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Urinary (Renal/Kidney) Stones Facts

Many theories and as many reasons are given, but in most of the cases, cause of stone formation in the kidneys is not clear. Biochemical dysfunction seems to be the only possible explanation. Stones generally develop very slowly. Tendency to stone formation may be hereditary.

Stones may vary in size from sand particles to large stone. Urinary stones may be present for many years and may give rise to no symptoms. When a stone obstructs the urinary passage, mild pain to severe renal colic occurs. There may be restlessness, sweating, pallor, vomiting, frequent urination, blood in urine etc during pain. Attack of pain may last few hours to few days, varying in severity time to time. In many cases, urinary infection is a common occurrence.

Homeopathic treatment plan comprises of:

  1. Ultrasonography at regular interval of three to four months to monitor 
    • The size of the stone and 
    • Movement of the stone along the urinary passage.
  2. Kidney function tests should be done to evaluate the function of kidneys.
  3. Urine examination may be helpful to treat the accompanying urinary infections.
  4. Parathyroid hormone essay and serum calcium level should be considered if the stone formation is recurrent.

Homeopathic Approach 

  1. It is a well-known fact that some stones can pass naturally. But often they may cause severe pain and at times obstruction. But with homeopathic treatment, even moderate sized stone can pass absolutely painlessly.
  2. Though the use of painkillers and antispasmodics can relieve the pain and spasm, but in the process can actually hamper or suspend the onward and outward movement of the stone. With homeopathic treatment, body's natural reactions are stimulated that helps throw out the stone without much discomfort. 
  3. At times, it is seen that with homeopathic treatment stones gradually dissolve into sand particle s and get eliminated from the urinary system without being aware of it. This can be monitored by subsequent Ultrasonograms watching the gradual reduction in the size of the stones. 
  4. As stone formation is just a bye-product of body's biochemical dysfunction at deeper levels, only removal of the stone by natural or surgical means is not enough. Homeopathic treatment not only removes the stone, but can also modify the tendency to form stones by improving body's natural balance in general, and biochemical dysfunction in particular. 
  5. In bilateral, multiple and recurrent stones, constitutional homeopathic treatment is far-more superior than surgery or any other therapy as it has the potential to help the body, not only throw the stone out but also improve the biochemical dysfunction to check the recurrence of stone formation. 
  6. Surgery can be helpful only when the size of the stone is very large and causing damage to kidney by back- pressure. Even then, homeopathic treatment is of significant importance to improve the basic biochemical defects. 
  7. Constitutional Homeopathic treatment can also help avert the complication of surgery. 
  8. With constitutional homeopathic treatment, accompanying urinary infections are also relieved. 
  9. AND, the added advantage is that with constitutional homeopathic treatment, general health also improves.

Dietary Restrictions :

  1. Large number of dietary "take and avoid" is known to the masses, but their role is doubtful. With good constitutional homeopathic treatment and proper monitoring by ultrasography, dietary restrictions are not mandatory.
  2. Increased amounts of fluid intake are advisable. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath and ask a free question.

Anal Fissures - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment

Anal fissures are the small tears formed in the anal lining. They are also known as anal ulcers. An anal fissure causes a lot of pain and bleeding during your bowel movements. Usually a fissure heals automatically in a few days time. It can be treated with simple home remedies as well.

Causes:

  1. You can suffer from an anal fissure if you pass hard and large stools. 
  2. Also strained childbirth or suffering from violent spells of diarrhea might get you an anal fissure. 
  3. Chronic constipation may also be cause of a fissure. 
  4. Other rare causes may be anal cancer, HIV, tuberculosis or herpes. 

Individuals of all age groups can suffer from anal fissures. It is not a very serious problem and heals on its own in a few weeks. Although it can heal itself, there are certain treatments which can help relieve the pain you get from an anal fissure.

Symptoms:
An anal fissure has quite a lot of symptoms for you to understand what you are suffering from:

  1. There will be a very visible tear around the anal region. You will be able to spot the tear on the skin very easily.
  2. A small lump of skin may form next to the tear.
  3. When you will be undergoing your bowel movements, you will feel a very sharp pain in the anal region.
  4. You will find spots of blood on the stool passed.
  5. You will also feel a burning or an itching sensation in the anal region.

Treatment:
Although most fissures do not require treatment, there are a few remedies that will help cure them faster:

  1. Stool softeners: You get certain medicines at the chemist, which are known for their stool softening functions. These stool softeners help to soften the hard stools and initiates smooth bowel movements.
  2. Eat fibrous foods: Eat foods rich in fiber like fruits, whole grain cereals, raw vegetables, etc.
  3. Take warm baths: Take a bath in warm water as it relaxes your anal muscles, helps to relieve irritation in the region, and increases blood flow in the anorectal region.
  4. Use ointment: Apply nitroglycerin ointments and topical pain relievers to promote blood flow to the anal region and to relieve discomfort from the region respectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hello, Thanks for the query. When a person has long standing diabetes, it does affect kidney function, even when it is very well controlled. But if the blood glucose levels are not in proper check then damage to kidney is much earlier and more. Since you have not mentioned any thing about blood glucose levels and HbA1c%, it is difficult to know. Further if the patient also has hypertension, then unless that is well controlled (120 to 130 /70 to 80 mm Hg), there can be more stress on kidney. To reduce creatinine, first and foremost is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBG :<100 mg, PP :160 to 170 mg & HbA1c% <7. Plus if patient is not on either ACE inhibitor or ARB, then it should be started. Secondly protein intake should be restricted to about 0.6 g / kg body weight per day. Plus should do less vigorous physical activity and drink enough liquids. Thanks.

Since you have already consulted many specialists and found no relief, a detailed analysis of symptoms and investigations will be required. In most of such cases chronic backache is often the culprit and addiction to pain killers is the cause of gastric ulcers and erosions. Back strengthening exercises and plenty of fluids can be helpful for you. The cycle of chronic pain has to be broken witl analgesics and anti-inflammatory agents.

You have not mentioned about having or not fever with this problem. If you are having fever with chills this may be due to acute infection in bladder called cystitis. In absence of fever or slight fever it can also be due to a small stone or calculus in the bladder near the neck of bladder irritating the sensitive area and causing frequency of micturition. Get a microscopic urine examination and for presence or absence of crystals. A ultra sonogram of abdomen for jidney ureter and bladder will be helpful in visualizing the calculus if of enough size to produce echo.

Use dutas-t (dutasteride + tamsulosin) once daily. If symptoms persists even after 2 weeks, consult a urologist to rule out other causes and urinary infecion. Rule out diabetes and check kidney function also.

Stone size of less than 5mm usually treated conservatively. 1. You need to drink plenty of water. 2. If pain occurs you can take analgesics. 3. Do repeat scan.
