Dear , your symptoms are suggestive of prostatic enlargement which ocuurs due to advancing age. Just try out alpha blockers like tamsulocin 0.4 mg at bedtime and see how you go. At the same time make sure that you are not constipated as it increases prostatic problem.

What I do I have stone of 4mm in kidney. Dose I have to operate or it will ok after taking medicine ?

What I do I have stone of 4mm in kidney. Dose I have to operate or it will ok after taking medicine ?
Patient information leaflet on kidney stones. Having a kidney stone can be painful and distressing. Most stones pass out of the body without any treatment. But for those that don't, there are good treatments available. What are kidney stones? kidney stones are solid, stone-like lumps that can form in your kidneys. They are made from waste chemicals in your urine. Stones can also form in your bladder and the tubes that carry urine from your kidneys to your bladder (these are called ureters). Stones can stay in your kidneys without causing problems. But some might travel out of your body in the flow of urine. If they are very small, they can pass out of your body without you noticing. But larger ones can rub against the tubes or even get stuck. This can be extremely painful. There are four types of kidney stones? the most common type contains calcium. These stones are called calcium oxalate stones? uric acid stones form if there is too much uric acid in your urine. Uric acid is a waste product made when food is digested? struvite stones develop after a urinary infection, such as cystitis? cystine stones are caused by a rare inherited condition called cystinuria. It is important to know what kind of stone you have, as this will affect your treatment to prevent future stones. What are the symptoms? the main symptom is pain. This can be a dull ache in your back or side, or an extremely sharp, cramping pain. The pain usually comes on suddenly. It might spread down to your tummy or groin. You might also? feel sweaty or sick? be sick? find blood in your urine. This is caused by the stone rubbing against the walls of the ureter? need to urinate more often or feel a burning sensation when you urinate. Your doctor is likely to suspect you have a kidney stone if you have sudden, severe pain in your side and blood in your urine. You'll probably be sent to hospital for an x-ray. If you have a kidney stone, these tests may show how big the stone is and where it is stuck. If the x-ray does not show a kidney stone, you will probably have more tests to find out what's causing the pain. You may not get any symptoms with a kidney stone. You might find out you have one when you have an x-ray for another reason. What treatments work? stones that are less than 1 centimetre across often pass out of the body without any treatment. It can take two days to four weeks for this to happen. You can help the process along by drinking plenty of water to increase the flow of urine. You'll also need to take strong painkillers for the pain. If you have a stone stuck in a tube (ureter), your doctor might recommend taking a medicine called an alpha-blocker. This type of drug is often used to treat high blood pressure or symptoms of an enlarged prostate, but studies show it can also help stones to pass through the ureters faster. You'll probably be able to stay at home during this time, although you may need x-rays to check on the progress of the stone. Your doctor may ask you to catch the stone with a tea strainer or something similar as it comes out. This is so your doctor can see what type of stone you have. Knowing the type of stone will help them work out what you can do to prevent more stones. Surgical treatments larger stones and those that don't pass out of the body need treatment. All the following treatments work well? shock wave therapy uses shock waves to break up stones into small pieces that can pass out of the body. Many stones are dealt with this way and it avoids any operation. You might sit in a tub of water or lie on a table to have this treatment. You'll have a local anaesthetic to numb the area that's being treated. You may need several treatments to break up hard or large stones. The risk of side effects after this treatment is small. But you could get an infection in your kidney or a stone stuck in your ureter afterwards? you may need a minor operation if a stone in your kidney is large or in an awkward place. It's called a percutaneous nephrolithotomy (pcnl. You will have a general anaesthetic, so you will not be awake for the operation. You will probably have to stay in hospital. The doctor will make a small cut in your back and pass a needle and a very thin tube into your kidney to remove the stone. Like all operations, there can be problems (complications). The main ones are constipation and infections. Kidney stones? if the stone is stuck in a tube (ureter), you may have a ureteroscopy. You don't need any cuts made in your body for this, and you can probably go home the same day. You can have a local or general anaesthetic. The doctor feeds a long, thin wire up through your bladder and into the ureter to reach the stone. The doctor then either removes the stone or breaks it up with shock waves. This procedure works well, but it does have risks. In one study, about 1 out of 10 people who had this treatment had a damaged or torn ureter afterwards. What will happen to me? if you've had a kidney stone you have about a 1 in 2 chance of getting another one within five years to seven years. Your doctor can prescribe medicines to help stop you getting some types of stones. The type of medicine you get depends on the type of stone you've had. For example, you may need to take diuretics (water pills) to reduce calcium in your urine if your stone contained calcium. If you have too much uric acid in your urine you might be given a drug called allopurinol (the brand names are caplenal, cosuric, and zyloric). Your risk of getting more stones may also be affected by what you eat and drink. To reduce your risk, you can? drink more than two litres of water a day? eat a healthy diet, including calcium but not calcium supplements. Foods rich in calcium include milk and other dairy products, peas and beans, leafy green vegetables, nuts, and bony fish like sardines and salmon? avoid using lots of salt? eat more vegetables. Vegetables make the urine less acidic. If you've had a calcium oxalate stone, you may need to reduce the amount of oxalate in your diet. This means cutting down on chocolate, nuts, rhubarb, strawberries, spinach, coffee, and tea. But changes in diet don't work for everyone, and there is not a lot of evidence to show how well they work. So it's important to talk to your doctor before making big changes to what you eat.

Hi, Kidney stones of size below 1 cm does not need any surgical intervention. Drink 3-4 litres of water per day. Take tab. Renali 1 tab. 3 times a day for 2-3 months. Drink tender coconut water and lemon juice once everyday. Consume raw banana stem mixed with curds. This helps in crushing the stone into smaller pieces which gets flushed out with urine.

8 Causes Of Chronic Kidney Diseases!

8 Causes Of Chronic Kidney Diseases!

Chronic Kidney Disease (also known as Chronic Renal Failure) is the progressive loss of kidney function occurring over a span of several months to several years and is characterised by the replacement of kidney architecture with nonfunctional fibrotic shrunken tissue. Chronic kidney disease is classified into five stages on the basis or proteinuria (presence of protein in large amounts in the urine) or Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) 1 being the mildest with no distinct symptoms and 5 being end stage renal failure. 

Causes and Risk Factors of Chronic Kidney Disease 

The various reasons (called risk factors) that can increase chances of Chronic Kidney Diseases are: 

  • Diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia (excess fat proteins in the blood) 
  • Hypertension 
  • Family history heritable renal disease 
  • Older age smoking 
  • Autoimmune disease 
  • Past episodes of acute renal disease 
  • Kidney Stones 
  • Excessive self-medication especially pain killers 

The direct causes of Chronic Kidney Diseases are: 

  • Diabetic nephropathy (leading cause) 
  • Hypertensive nephropathy Glomerulonephritis (swelling of the glomerulus in the kidneys) 
  • Reno-vascular disease (ischemic nephropathy) 
  • Polycystic kidney disease 
  • HIV-associated nephropathy 
  • Transplant allograft failure 
  • Exposure to drugs and toxins 

Diet that you must maintain in Chronic Kidney Disease: 

It is essential to make dietary as well as lifestyle amends once you are diagnosed with CKD. The main purpose of this diet is to maintain the levels of carbohydrates, fluids and minerals. This is done to prevent the buildup of waste products in the body as the kidneys are unable to fulfil its function properly. It is recommended to refer a dietician who can make you a diet chart that helps you adhere to your diet. 

Here is a list of food items that you may avoid or may consume if you are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease: 

  1. Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are a good source of energy. If the intake of protein has been restricted, then it is recommended to replace that with carbohydrates as a source of energy. Fruits, vegetables, grains and bread can be consumed as they are rich source of fibres, minerals and various types of vitamins. You can indulge in some hard candies or sweets as well. 
  2. Fats: Fats can provide a good amount of calories as well. Ensure that you only stick to healthy fats such as the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that are good for your cardiac health. 
  3. Reduce your phosphorus intake: A diet with no more than 800 mg of phosphorus can help reduce the risk of too much phosphorus building up in your blood. Limit intake of foods with high levels of phosphate or phosphate additives such as organ meats, whole grain breads, processed foods, cola beverages, cheese, dried beans, liver, peanut butter, dairy products and chocolate. Many beverages and processed foods have these additives. Other high-phosphorus foods to limit include: 
    • Ice cream 
    • Legumes 
    • Milk 
    • Nuts 
    • Yogurt 
  4. Monitor your potassium levels: Usually, potassium is not restricted in stage 3 CKD unless lab tests show potassium is too high. Your doctor may make medication changes or prescribe a low-potassium diet. Reduce an elevated potassium level by limiting some high-potassium foods and potassium chloride (found in salt substitute and many low-sodium processed foods). Some high-potassium foods to limit or avoid include: 
    • Avocado 
    • Bananas 
    • Cantaloupe 
    • Honeydew melon 
    • Dried fruit 
    • Legumes 
    • Milk 
    • Nuts and seeds 
    • Oranges and orange juice 
    • Pumpkin and winter squash 
    • Tomato products (juices, sauces, paste) 
  5. Proteins: Usually, before undergoing dialysis, it is recommended to adhere to a low-protein intake diet. However, when you are undergoing dialysis, it is necessary to consume a certain amount of class one high-quality protein like nonvegetarian, paneer, soyabean, mushroom. This detailed information can be obtained from your dietician. 
  6. Fluids: In the early stages of CKD, your fluid intake is not monitored. But as the disease progresses, you need to check your intake of fluids as too much fluids may accumulate in your body and create swelling in your legs and cause pressure on your lungs and heart. 
  7. Sodium Or salt intake: Keeping a check on your salt intake reduces the risks of high blood pressure. Also, having food low on salt can reduce your thirst and prevent fluid retention in your body. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a nephrologist.

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 ur USG report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG.

It is not uncommon to have multiple problems. Such as in your case, if you have an irritable bowel, a gastroenterologist would address that. Vaginal pain may require a gynecology opinion. As for the stone disease, it is usually a lifestyle related disease and quite prone to recurrence. Hence you need to keep yourself well hydrated all life long to achieve a 24 hour urine output of atleast 2 litres. And get an ultrasound of the urinary system done every 6-12 monthly, to pick up any new stone arising. As for now, you may require to undergo a urological intervention again depending on the site of instruction of the 8 mm calculus.

Recently I found ants in my urinate pot and I got my urine test done. The test shows presence of protein in my urine. And also a sign A+++ was written which I don't understand what it indicates. As I google about this problem, I got to know its something related to kidney infection where kidney fails to filter protein out of blood. Therefore kindly guide me if I just have to take anti-biotic or its a serious problem and I need to consult a physician as well. As sometimes I feel pain in my left side of my stomach. I smoke and drink as well and the frequency is 2-3 times in a month. Kindly guide me. What to do.

Respected lybrate-user, hi this is in relation with kidney infection with some sort of bacteria. A+++ indicate, presence of significant amount of albumin in the urine, and kidney is not functioning as it should be. Do not panic, drink plenty of liquids. Continue antibiotics. Have once serum creatinine level, ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis done and then consult with the report. Wishing you fine health ahead. Thanks ,regards dear take care.
