What are the symptoms of kidney failure? What are the symptoms of excess cholesterol?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Signs and symptoms of kidney disease may include: Nausea. Vomiting. Loss of appetite. Fatigue and weakness. Sleep problems. Changes in how much you urinate. Decreased mental sharpness. Muscle twitches and cramps. Elevated cholesterol levels are one of the risk factors for heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease. The mechanism involving cholesterol in all three diseases is the same; plaque buildup within arteries decreases blood flow affecting the function of the cells and organs that these blood vessels supply.

Sir, in my father left kidney there are two stones 3-4 mm. And 5mm. In urinary bladder there is also one stone. Doctor advice for operation. Can it be remove without operation.

DNB (Urology), MS, MBBS

Hi lybrate-user. Your kidney stones are small and there is a good chance that you will pass them without operation. However if bladder stone is there for sometime then there is little chance that it will pas out. I think you should get it removed as soon as possible. And these days it is done by endoscopic surgery so there is no cut and you can be back to work very soon after operation.

Chronic Kidney Disease - 9 Symptoms that Can Help You Detect it

What are the functions of the kidney?

The kidneys filter waste and excess fluid from the blood. As kidneys fail, the waste accumulates in the body. The two most important enzymes, which kidney makes are erythropoietin & renin. Erythropoietin are made by the kidneys if there is less oxygen in the blood. It tells the bone marrow to make more red blood cells. So this means there will be more oxygen carried in the blood.

Renin is made by the kidney if there is low blood pressure, low volume of blood, or too low salts in the blood Renin make the blood vessels smaller and tells the adrenal gland to make aldosterone. It also makes a person feel thirsty and all of this makes the blood pressure go up. Since Kidney plays a very important role in the overall functioning of the body, it’s very important to take care of its health.

Let’s have a look on various kind of kidney disease including the one which are chronic:

  1. Kidney stones
  2. Kidney Infections
  3. Glomerulonephritis
  4. Congenital Kidney disease
  5. Diabetic Nephropathy
  6. Hypertensive Nephropathy
  7. Cancer

Now what is Chronic Kidney Disease?

Chronic kidney disease include conditions that damage your kidneys and decrease their ability to keep healthy by doing the jobs listed, if it gets worse, wastes can build to high levels in the blood and make person sick.
Chronic kidney disease is caused by diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders.

What causes chronic kidney disease?
The two main causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes & high blood pressure which are responsible for up to two third of the cases. Other conditions that affect the kidney are:
1. A group of diseases that cause inflammation and damage to the kidney’s filtering unit.
2. Inherited disease such as poly cystic kidney disease.
3. Malformation that occur as a baby develop in mother’s womb.
4. Lupus and other disease that affect the body’s immune system.
5. Repeated urinary infections.

What are the symptoms of chronic kidney disease?
1. Feel more tired and have less energy
2. Have trouble concentrating
3. Poor appetite
4. Trouble sleeping
5. Muscle cramping at night
6. Swollen feet and ankles
7. Puffiness around the eyes especially in the morning
8. Dry itchy skin
9. Need to urinate more often, especially at night.

In case of the similar symptoms one needs to get it diagnosed and connect with the physician for good care and treatment. Stay Healthy!

The most important thing to take care now is tha the kidneys dont get damaged further. So control diabetes and BP if she has it. What is the fasting blood glucose level result? Consult in private on Lybrate or personally with information about your main complains, lifestyle, lab results and diet for detailed advice.

One cannot avoid city water if you are residing in the city itself. Best way is to boil water and look for any sedimentation below to trace the mineral content. Às far as kidney stones are Concerrned ,try to restrictrestrict protein Rich foods and oxalate rich foods like spinach,mushroom tomatoes.

I would suggest you that you should also note that is your problem associated wd burning urine if so you might be suffering from urine infection called as uti and these problems can also occur in diabetes. Do you have a family history of diabetes other conditions may include interstitial cystitis and overactive bladder. I suggest you to get urine routine if infection comes can be treated and if doesnot come you should visit a doctor to rule out any other disease.

Need urgent advice on small kidney stones, want to get rid of them without operation. Please reply in pain.

Homeopath, Mumbai
Kidney stones are formed from mineral deposits in the kidneys and even in the urinary bladder. Stones are usually made from minerals and acid salts .The most common cause of kidney stone formation is an increased concentration of minerals in the urine, due to less fluid intake. These minerals settle along the walls of the kidneys or the bladder and stick together to form kidney stones. Increasing your water or fluid intake in a day could help dilute the kidneys and the urinary bladder. It could also prevent the formation of small stones and may also help dissolve smaller stones so these may be passed safely out of the body via the urine. Increasing your fluid intake from 10 to12 glasses of water or fluids in a day could help as well as eating foods that have high water content. Foods like fruits, soups and teas are perfect beverages to choose. On the other hand, drinks like carbonated drinks, sodas and caffeinated drinks must be totally avoided. Homeopathy offers the best alternative non-surgical treatment for kidney stones.In the homeopathic system of medicine, one can easily remove the kidney stones naturally with simple homeopathic medicines. The advantage of homeopathy is that you can avoid surgery and it also cures the tendency of the body to form stones. This means that the chances of the stones being formed again are next to nil. Made of natural substances and completely safe with no side effects, Homeopathic medicines are given after taking note of unique individual symptoms. You can consult me online via Lybrate for further evaluation and homeopathic medicines. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.
