High blood sugar makes you prone to infection. Unless you control it, infection will recur. Check urine routine to confirm. Check fasting and pp blood sugar. Change meds if needed.

Small stones upto 7mm may pass spontaneously with medicines. Larger stones require endoscopic or surgical removal or sometimes ultrasonic breakage. Have plenty of water. Get ultrasound kub done.

Dear user. It is normal for a person to pass urine about 5 to 7 times in a day. Further frequency also depends on your diet and medicines intake. Going to void after 2 hours I don't think to be abnormal unless some other symptoms also.

Try doing kapal bhathi. There is a special way of doing it for prostrate patients. Lie down on the floor or bed. Do kapal bhathi in such a way that the strokes are felt on the point where the penis joins the main trunk of the body. This gives a mild internal massage to prostrate. Hence the general health of the prostrate improves. In any case surgery is also not a bad option and should not be ruled out.

Dear at this stage what little detail you have given, it does not matter what diet he takes because diet will depend upon chemical structure of the stone you have no chemical analysis of the stone. What is more important is to find why he gets uti. Till then drink plenty of fluids. If you got any investigations done so far please post them along with pictures then I can help better.

Liver is the main chemical laboratory of our body to detoxify any metabolites generated. We do not want to tax liver as she had hepatitis. Avoid chuttenys. Uncooked, stale food. She can have chapati with boiled or less oily vegetables. Totally fried food to be avoided atleast for few weeks. Her enzymes *& bilirubin to be monitor. Rest is the best medicine. Once the liver function test comes to normal, she can gradually start activities & same applies to food.

One condition whoch can cause similar complaints is diabetes insipidis. But it is quite rare. You might be having certain problems in the mouth which might be causing dryness of mouth which in turn might make you thirsty and cause more urination.

Get a urine routine culture done if you're having fever also. If comes positive, you will need antibiotics. Take plenty of water it might be due to dehydration also. You can have some good citrate syrup if culture comes negative.

You do not require surgery for this very small size stone in kidney (3 mm). Drink enough water (2-3 litre)/ lemon water/orange juice/coconut water. Avoid non-veg/ palak/tomato/sapota/beans/brinjal etc. No need to worry.

Dear lybrate-user, U need to have your Urine investigation done first. To find out the cause of UTI. It may take 1-1.5 months to cure the UTI with herbal medications. Meanwhile start drinking at least 3-4 liters of water every day so that kidneys maintain proper flushing. Also have fresh juices / fruits. Coconut water is best for you – have plenty of it. Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear. Avoid – tomatoes, beet root, leafy vegetables, cauliflower, beans, milk and other dairy products, yellow of egg. Have more of these – lemon / lime / Pineapple and its juice / Water melon. Drink Coconut water regularly - very good diuretic.
