Drinking lots of water help in flushing out small sedimenys and salts which if not flushed result in stone formation. Balanced diet should be taken without excess of anything. Lemon is good for health but in lemited amounts. Source of water should be checked for hardness including city water. Whichever source has normal hardness can be taken if water is too hard ro water should be taken to prevent excess of salts in water.

Smelling of urine is not significant and you can do a urine culture and see if there is infection and treat it

Kidney disease can cause low haemoglobin. You can give him injections to bring it up after referring with your nephrologist. Breathing difficulty can be because of low haemoglobin or fluid overload or heart problems.

Overactive Bladder - Tips For It!

Urologist, Gurgaon
Overactive Bladder - Tips For It!

Overactive bladder, also known as OAB, is a condition where sudden involuntary contractions of the urinary bladder's muscular walls cause bladder storage dysfunction. It leads to sudden and frequent urges to urinate (urinary urgency), as well as unintentional leakage or urine (urinary incontinence).

This is a condition that affects both men and women and causes tremendous discomfort in nearly every aspect of daily life. The specific causes of OAB vary from case to case but it is generally attributed to infection of the urinary tract or dysfunction of the nervous system. The symptoms are intensified by unhealthy lifestyle choices such as overindulging in caffeinated drinks, spicy foods, and alcohol.

There are several ways in which you can deal with the problem of OAB, depending on the nature of the case. It is necessary for you to consult a urologist for a detailed diagnosis to formulate the best treatment option.

Following are the most effective remedies to treat an overactive bladder:

1. Lifestyle Modifications - Also known as behavioral therapy, this is the first step in the treatment of OAB. It involves inculcating simple changes into everyday habits such as avoiding food and drinks that irritate the bladder, scheduling (and in some cases, practice delaying) bathroom visits, exercising the pelvic floor and bladder muscles, keeping a record of urinating habits in a 'bladder diary' for better understanding the problem, etc. You can incorporate these habits into everyday activities for an easy alleviation of the problem with absolutely no side effects.

2. Medication and SurgeryThere are several different kinds of medicines and drugs that can treat the problem of OAB. The most common types are muscle relaxants that loosen the muscles of the urinary bladder to prevent involuntary contractions, and antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs that treat urinary tract infections. Many types of implants are surgically set into the pelvic area to act as electrical nerve stimulators for neuromodulation therapy. Reconstructive bladder surgery is another remedial option.

3. Devices and Products - Urinary urgency and incontinence can be managed through the external use of various devices and products which collect and hold urine or absorb leakages. These include indwelling catheters, condom catheters (for men), urine drainage bags, absorbent pads and adult diapers, and toilet substitutes such as bedpans and bedside urinals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

Kidney Stones and Renal Calculi

Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Kidney Stones and Renal Calculi

Hello everyone I'm Dr. Pallavi Mehta. I'm a homeopathic physician practicing in Mulund area since the last 5 and half years now. In my practice. I come across many cases which are succesfully treated with homeopathy. One of the cases in which I've seen very good results is kidney stones or renal calculi. Renal calculi is basically hard deposits of urine which are majorly composed of minerals and acid salts. The most common form of kidney stones is calcium oxalate stone. However, calcium phosphate, stru white and uric acid stones are also seen very commonly. There are other varieties as well.

The primary symptom which is faced by the people with urinal calculi is pain in the upper back region which radiates in the front. This is also called renal colic. There are other symptoms as well like nausea, vomiting or difficulty in passing urine, difficulty in passing frequent and small parts of urine and tehre might be some blood in urine etc. The commonest cause of having renal calculi or kidney stone is having a concentrated urine. Basically this happens because of insufficient drinking of water. However at this point i would also like to mention one thing that consuming enough calcium from natural food sources does not usually effect the formation of renal calculi but at the same time consumption of high oxalates can definitely cause renal calculi. The richest source of oxalate is spinach, beet, nuts, potato chips etc.

Uric acid stones are commonly found in people having gout and they can also be seen in people who are undergoing chemotherapy. Easiest way to diagnose kidney stones is by doing an X-ray or an ultrasound. A routine examination of the urine can also help us identify the kind of stone we have. Treatment of the kidney stones needs a Holistic approach, proper diet and proper intake of water is as important as taking proper medication. With homeopathic treatment we can also prevent the complications which can happen due to kidney stones and also prevent the recurrences which are commonly seen in stones.

In my experience I've come across and also treated a teenage female who used to have renal calculi since the age of 10yrs. She had also undergone two operations for the same situation and when she came to me she was also having a condition known as hydronefrosis which is basically a situation where in the stone gets implanted in the ureter leading to accumulation of urine in kidneys and swelling of the bladder ultimately. Within 6 months of the treatment, not only the stone was dissolved, the hydro nefrosis was reduced, it was almost gone and now it's been 3yrs that she has been out of treatment and she has not had even one problem related to urine and no stones at all.

In another case in a female of 70yrs old, she used to have frequent renal calculi and frequent urinary infections since almost as high as 20yrs. She used to have infections as frequently as twice every month. But within a month of starting the treatment, the urine culture report started dropping drastically which indiactes the number of bacteria in the urine, and it has been one and a half years since she has started the treatment in October 2015 and she has not had calculi at all and had only once urinal tract infection that too beacuse of some travelling issues and her personal issues of drinking insufficient water. Basically such are the good results we get in homeopathic treatment for conditions as important as renal calculi. Many people tend to rush to the urologist for such conditions and they tend to ignore alternate therapy.

I would really like to recommend that you can also consider alternate therapy like homeopathy for such conditions. For more information you can definitely contact me at librate.com. Thank you.

I am 19, and I only pee around two to three times these days. My urine is quite smelly, color is orangish. If I hold it for some time (2-3 hours) I start feeling a numbness in my bladder (not having pressure to pee but I know I have to) and also feel pins and needles in my hands and legs.

Dear , it is summer and weather is quite hot one tends to lose a lot of fluids in form of perspiration and also through respiration which is called insensible loss. If you are not drinking enough then body does not have spare fluid to throw out in form of urine. Hence kidneys have to work hard to throw out waste products in minimum amount of water which results in very concentrated urine which turn initially yellow, dark yellow and almost orange in colour. This surely indicates that you are not drinking enough water hence urine is orangish and much less in quantity. This highly concentrated urine is very irritant to bladder so you feel you need to pass urine where there is not enough quantity to induce natural desire to pass urine. Rest of the symptoms are due to dehydration. So my only advice is to drink plenty of fluids along with some isotonic drinks to the extent that urine becomes watery in colour.

Dear , 1. Get urine examination when you have frequent urination. If pus cells are more then 5 then it is infection and treat it with antibiotics for at least 15 days. 2. Then get sonography done with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness on full bladder and post void residual urine to confirm or rule out urinary causes. 3. If these tests are normal one has to consider anal fissure due to passage of hard faeces. If so treat constipation and various measures.

Kidney Disease - How It Is Related With Anaemia?

Kidney Disease - How It Is Related With Anaemia?

A healthy kidney produces a hormone known as the erythropoietin. The latter assists the bone marrow to produce an adequate amount of RBC that carries oxygen to every nook and corner of the body. A damaged kidney results in less RBC production, thereby, creating a condition known as anaemia. The hemoglobin count in the blood reduces significantly in this condition.

Anaemia is characterized by shortness of breath, weakness and tiredness. It can affect sleep and a loss of appetite. A patient suffering from anaemia reports of frequent headaches and a faster heart rate. These symptoms also surface when a person suffers from chronic kidney diseases (CKD). The condition gets worse as the disease progresses.

Treating anaemia:
A patient suffering from anaemia should be treated on time as there are many pitfalls of a lower hemoglobin level. The treatment will give instant relief from other symptoms that might have arrived with CKD. Doctors frequently prescribe Erythropoiesis Stimulating Agent (ESA) for patients suffering from CKD and suffering from anaemia due to the shortage of erythropoietin. ESAs can be injected through an injection or intravenously. These injections stimulate the bone marrow to produce more RBCs. However, studies have revealed that ESAs increase the chance of strokes, heart attacks and blood clots. Furthermore, they aggravate tumor growth and shorten life expectancy for cancer patients. People undergoing ESA treatment should have periodic check-ups to ensure that the hemoglobin count is normal and under control.

Iron
Iron count in the body has an important role in treating patients suffering from anaemia and CKD. In case the level of iron is too low in the body, ESAs fail to improve the condition of an anaemic patient. The ferritin count of a patient should be in the range of 100-800 mcg/L. One more test known as TSAT reveals the number of iron required to produce RBCs in the body. In case the iron count is less, doctors often suggest iron pills to bring the count to a more accepted level.

Other causes
There could be other reasons for anaemia as well. A doctor might further investigate the level of B12 and folic acid present in the body. Even an inflammatory condition can lead to anaemia. A decreased count of any of the above mentioned ingredients can cause anaemia to a patient suffering from EKD.

Food items necessary to improve the condition
A healthy diet helps in improving the condition of an anaemic patient. Iron deficiency is best addressed by fish and beef. Food rich in vitamin C helps the body to absorb more iron in the body. Certain food items that block the entry of iron in the body include tea, milk, albumen (egg white) etc. Therefore, you should be strictly avoid these items from your diet.
