Yesterday there was urges to urinate frequently and being conscious I did my urine RE test. The result shows pH value acidic and the most unfortunate is " RBC occasionally" . I'm really worried about what "occasionally" means? Is it normal .what should I do next? Please help me out.

What are the symptoms of a kidney stone? What are the symptoms of a kidney stone?
No symptoms, if the stone is small enough. Sudden, severe pain that gets worse in waves. Feeling sick to the stomach (nausea) and vomiting. Blood in the urine (hematuria), which can occur either with stones that stay in the kidney or with those that travel through the ureters.

Dear lybrate user, its better if you conduct usg of whole abdomen. It will cost around rs 1500. In case you have kidney stone, the usg report will describe the dimension of the stone. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But if the size of the stone is more than 3mm then you should surely go for surgery.

Hi. One should take at least 10-12 glasses of water in a day (which may vary as per season or climate). Hello. Kidney stones often have no definite, single cause, although several factors may increase your risk.Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form. -Most kidney stones are calcium stones, usually in the form of calcium oxalate. Oxalate is a naturally occurring substance found in food. Some fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts and chocolate, have high oxalate levels. Your liver also produces oxalate. Dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can increase the concentration of calcium or oxalate in urine. Calcium stones may also occur in the form of calcium phosphate. -Struvite stones form in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow quickly and become quite large, sometimes with few symptoms or little warning. -Uric acid stones can form in people who don't drink enough fluids or who lose too much fluid, those who eat a high-protein diet, and those who have gout. Certain genetic factors also may increase your risk of uric acid stones. -Cystine form in people with a hereditary disorder that causes the kidneys to excrete too much of certain amino acids (cystinuria). -Other, rarer types of kidney stones also can occur. Medication: There are homoeopathic medication like Hydrangea, Berberis Vulgaris, Cantharis, etc. which are given to remove a small stone in the kidney. Diagnosis: The following tests can rule out obstruction: abdominal X-rays. intravenous pyelogram (IVP) retrograde pyelogram. ultrasound of the kidney (this is the preferred study) MRI of the abdomen and kidneys. abdominal CT scan.

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.
