The best treatment of gout consists of restoring the balance of vata (air element) and detoxifying the blood. High protein diet should be avoided in cases of increased uric acid. Take maha rasnadi kwath 2-2 tsf twice a day. Take maha yograj guggul 1-1 twice a day. Kaishor guggulguggul and chandraprabha vati 1-1 twice a day. Avoid junk food. Fermented food. Spicy food. Tea. Coffee. Do pranayama early morning. Avoid alcohol consumption.

I am 17 years old I am suffer from kidney stones what should I do?
what are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) registered dietitian who will also prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I am 69 male. My urination process is slow now without any other symptoms like burning etc I had undergone hemorrhoid operation in 2003 and the anesthetist administered injection in my lower spinal cord before the procedure. Since then I had been experiencing the slow urination, and I was given to understand that the'slowness' is the phenomena of that particular'injection-procedural. This is further to inform you that in 2013, on 21st march a stent was implanted in my left carotid artery. Besides, following is the list of my regular medicine-intake: 1)- thyronorm150, 2)- stamlobeta, 3)- becadexamin, 4)- neorobeon forte, 5)-ctd 6.25 (mon-wed-fri), 6)- glycomet500- twice daily, 7)- ecospirin 150, 8)- amaryl 1mg, 9)- shecal hd, 10)- extor20. I am seeking your advice.

Dear , at 69 years of age you are well into prostate enlargement age your slow urination may be due to prostatic enlargement and probably has nothing to do with that spinal injection as that has never happened in my entire 47 years of carrier. Another likely cause would be constipation with passage of hard faeces, for prostate get urine test and sonography with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness and post void residual urine. Let me know the results

No no relation of masturbation with renal failure. Don't be shameful of it as it is a natural and harmless process without ant bad effect on your health or future sexual life. Rather it is beneficial to your health by providing pleasure and satisfaction but only if there is no guilt. So if you have guilt, don't do it or get rid of your guilt, as there is nothing bad in masturbation.

Phone talk doesn't cause urine infections but can increase sexual organ discharges normally, and if you do all before marriage you will be bored after marriage.

You have to drink a plenty of water or other fluid. The quantity should always more than two litre of water you intake. Only this will help you to stop this stone formation. Or you can take suggestion from a normal physician that what you have to stop or eat in small quantity. There are many vegetables which increase the percentage of formation of stone in every person. Drink water as much you can only it will help you remove those particals through urine which can be make stone in your body.

Dear lybrate user, -The kidney stones will be removed from the roots by laser but if she doesn't take precautions after that they can again form -she should have plenty of fluids including8-10 glasses of water per day to flush out the toxins & to keep the kidneys healthy, also avoid spicy, fried food & intake of calcium substitutes for a long period if she consumes them -get regular checkups & investigations done to avoid recurrence.

What Is the symptoms of kidney failure and how to or what is the procedure to solve to save our kidney.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Signs and symptoms of chronic kidney disease develop over time if kidney damage progresses slowly. Signs and symptoms of kidney disease may include: • Nausea • Vomiting • Loss of appetite • Fatigue and weakness • Sleep problems • Changes in urine output • Decreased mental sharpness • Muscle twitches and cramps • Hiccups • Swelling of feet and ankles • Persistent itching • Chest pain, if fluid builds up around the lining of the heart • Shortness of breath, if fluid builds up in the lungs • High blood pressure (hypertension) that's difficult to control Signs and symptoms of kidney disease are often nonspecific, meaning they can also be caused by other illnesses. And because your kidneys are highly adaptable and able to compensate for lost function, signs and symptoms may not appear until irreversible damage has occurred. HOW TO MAINTAIN OUR KIDNEY HEALTH 1.Keep your blood pressure at the target set by your Doctor. For most people, the blood pressure target is less than 140/90 mm Hg. This can delay or prevent kidney failure. 2.If you have diabetes, control your blood glucose level. 3.Keep your cholesterol levels in the target range. 4.Take medicines as per your Doctor advise and don’t go for OTC drugs like combiflam,Disprin,Asprin without your Doctors recommendation. 5.Cut back on salt. Aim for less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium each day. 6.Choose foods that are healthy for your heart: fresh fruits, fresh or frozen vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods. 7.Limit your alcohol intake. 8.Be more physically active. 9.Lose weight if you are overweight. 10.If you smoke, take steps to quit. Cigarette smoking can make kidney damage worse.

Hi Mr. Sunny Your son is suffering from problem of improper assimilation of food due to gastro-intestinal problems. And this is responsible for his frequent stools because the stomach and intestines are not able digest and assimilate the food properly leading to weakness and all associated problems. As per my experience these children are usually physically lazy and mentally irritable but variations might occur. Kidney stones are not at all responsible for his problems. Treatment of this problem is possible with holistic homoeopathic medicines and after treating many cases I can tell you that it usually takes 3-4 mnths for the complete cure of problem and improvement is usually seen in first 15 days itself. You need to consult a good homoeopath for this or you can consult me over here or on person as you are in Delhi itself.

It means you probably had some stone or pelvi ureteric junction obstruction and the stone is not seen now. So it must have passed out with urine. You might have felt acute colicky pain also sometimes back for that. Now avoid getting dehydrated, avoid high protein foods for some day. It should come back to normal slowly. You can have a repeat usg done after a month just to be sure.

Yes quality of life will improve for sure. He will be off the hd but he needs to continue immunosupressants like steroids and calcineurin inhibitors. He might be off insulin depending upon his daily insulin requirements.
