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. Continous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size 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.

Median renal lengths were 11.2 cm on the left side and 10.9 cm on the right side. Median renal volumes were 146 cm3 in the left kidney and 134 cm3 in the right kidney. Renal size decreased with age, almost entirely because of parenchymal reduction. If you have no problems you need not worry or do a check up with the doctor who removed the other kidney.

I suffered from terrible UTI in August last year, for which I also took medicines as prescribed by gynae and it was cured after 15 days, but since then I have developed this problem that every time I pee, I feel like peeing again, and it happens way too many times after I take a shower. It is not painful like it was during UTi but it is very uncomfortable. I feel very irritated in my urinary tract. Also let me also mention, I have a desk job so I do not urinate very frequently and I have not had any physical contact in the last 3 months, so I think getting infection from my partner can be ruled out. Please tell me why is this happening and how can I cure/prevent it in the future.

increased frequency of urine may be due to a recurrence of uti ,you need to get an urine routine and microscopic examination done for that. whereas Increased volume of urine or polyuria may be due to many causes. If blood sugar levels are normal, diabetes mellitus is excluded. First water, sugar,caffeine,alcohol intake needs to be decreased. If problem does not subside after that, 24 hr urine volume measurement need to be done. If its more than 3litrs, then urine and serum osmolality and specific gravity needs to be evaluated. Depending on them serum vasopressin level and desmopressin stimulation test needs to be done later. These tests will exclude central or peripheral diabetes insipidus or polydipsia. Treatments can be done accordingly. Also history of taking any drugs like lithium, demeclocycline, amphotericin b, aminoglycosides etc. Or histry of any cns infections, trauma, surgeries needs to be excluded.

Few days after surgery/ shock wave therapy the burning micturition may be common due to passing of calculii. Hydrotherapy with consuming 4 litres of water daily may be helpful. Diet regulations to avoid recurrence of stones are very important.

Dear go syrup you are taking is simply an alkaliser and not antibiotic. It will not cure your infection on its own. It is usually given to change reaction of urine to alkaline. If urine shows more than 5 pus cells then one think of infection and then you need to take antibiotic for at least 15 days.

Check the blood sugar level and urine analysis to rule out diabetes and urinary tract infection. Drink water only when thirst is there. Do kiegel exercise. Symptomatic homoeopathic treatment for 5 days can clear the problem. Nothing to worry.

I m suffering from stone pain in my right kidney.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda,
I m suffering from stone pain in my right kidney.
If you are sure you had stone pain, please take lot of water and herbal diuretics including kulth kwath, yav kshar and shwet parpati, gokshur guggul and chandanasava. This will not deplete potassium from blood unlike with lasix etc. Safe and side effect less treatment. But then size of stone, texture, location of stone has to be seen. Pl give reports if any and converse privately. Our panel of doctors have also developed a herbal combo for expelling stones. The formula varies a bit with individual cases. May consult through lybrate to get one month course.

Hello Ms. Lybrate-user, you must be having fungal infection. You will need antifungal medication locally or orally depending on infection. If you or your partner has diabetes you need to get it controlled. Consult a good gynecologist. Take care.

Hi, It is essential that you meet a general physician and get a complete examination of your urine like urine osmolality, urine electrolytes etc which will lead to the diagnosis. There might be indications for other tests too. Hope this helps.
