Hello. Darker urine is usually a sign that you're not drinking enough fluid. (drink 12-14 glasses of water in a day daily). Certain medications can turn the urine fluorescent green or blue, vitamins can give it a yellow hue. Yellow urine may also there in jaundice. Certain food also turns the colour of urine yellow like beetroot. Blood in the urine, also known as haematuria, can cause darker urine. Haemolytic anemia can cause dark yellow urine color. Hepatitis (inflammation of liver) can cause a darker urine color. So, get your urine tested and blood tested for cbc & lft done.

Dear lybrate user, a kidney stone is mainly formed due to the accumulation of the minerals present in urine. Such accumulation occurs mainly due to low intake of fluids. Continuous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. Formation of stone leads to pain along the kidney region. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3 mm 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 3 mm then you should surely go for surgery.

Hello you should drink lots of lots of plain water daily. Though its been given in texts that at least 5 litres but my personal suggestion to all stone related patients is 7liters. Have citral syrup for urine alkalinisation. Get your usg done for it and please send me privately to go for further managemnt.

I am 75 years old male and have enlarges prostate for the last 15 years. I have been regularly using Urimax 0.4 mg capsule once a day for all these years. Even if I miss a single dose of this I start experiencing problem in urination within next 6 hours. My question is what are the side effects of such prolonged use of this medicine and whether there is a better medicine in Ayurved or Homeopathy for this.

Dnt know about options in ayurved or homeopathy but as such no side effects with this medicine. But if you are tired of it you should go for turp. That is transurethral resection of prostate.

I am 59 years old male. I had undergone spinal cord operation in the year 1986. Three years back my creatine level raised to 1.4 and after urinating, I still had some residual inside. When urine stayed inside I use to get infection and get fever. Since then I either removed the urine by inserting tube or wearing a urine bag as advice since then. Since few months my creatine levels are increasing. Now my creatine level is 7. My legs have swelling.

You are rather in a very critical condition.I will suggest to to go for Homoeopathic treatment alongwith the present treatment.There are very effective homoeopathic medicines which will help in bringing down the creatine levels and have no adverse effects if taken along with allopathic medicines.It will improve quality of your life .I willnot say at this stage that I can cure you 100% but right now fingers crossed and just have faith in me and homoeopathy.

Hi, thanks for writing in to us. I have read through your query in detail. Please find my observations below. 1. There can be slight variation in measurement of kidney when measured by doctors using different machines. There is a concern only when kidney size is less than 8.0 cms in length. Your kidneys are normal in both scans. 2. There are 3 stones in the lower pole of right kidney. These are small and can be dissolved by drinking adequate water and also reducing acidic urine. 3. There is a medicine called alkasol which will reduce acidity in urine and decrease the chance of stone formation and growth. This is a liquid and can be taken for a short duration of 5 days as 15 ml in a glass of water taken three times a day when you get any pain in kidney area or burning urination. Regards,

Look. Medical treatment could resolve your prblm if your stone would be small in size. But it is quite large. So in my opinion surgery will be the best choice. And don't be afraid of surgery. Now a day these kind of surgeries are take less time to heal and comparatively easier.

Dear , your father is suffering from stranguria. As it is recent it is more than likely that he has developed a fissure which is due to passage of hard stools. So treat it first: take emollient laxative like cremaffin plus 1 tsf at night, isabgol powder 3-4 tsf in a glass of water at night. Apply any ointment like anovate or zincal before passing stools. If no improvement then let me know in weeks time. Dr. Kiran mehta.

Dear , this could be due to many causes but 1. It can be irritative in nature mainly due to infection for which get urine examination done to see if the pus cells. Is pus cells are more than 5 then you have infection and antibiotics would be needed. Now find the reason for that urinary tract obstruction should be considered. For that sonography (kub) with full bladder volume, with wall thickness on full bladder and post micturition residual urine measurement is needed. Presence of residual urine indicates obstruction. If so then uroflowmetry is needed to decide between conservative line of management or surgery. Thirdly along with the results of these test let me know if you are constipated because fissure resulting from passage of hard faeces can also produce these symptoms due to external pressure created by the spasm of the sphincter muscle.
