What type food to eat while an how to reduce kidney stones?

Advanced Aesthetics
Ayurveda,
What type food to eat while an how to reduce kidney stones?
Kidney stones are a very common health problem. They form from the chemicals in urine, such as uric acid, phosphorous, calcium and oxalic acid. Other common causes of kidney stones are excessive consumption of vitamin D, a mineral imbalance, dehydration, gout and an improper diet Irrespective of the size of the kidney stones, they can cause severe pain. Other symptoms include a desire to urinate frequently, painful urination, nausea, vomiting and excessive sweating. Pomegranate Both the seeds and juice of pomegranates have astringent properties that can help in the treatment of kidney stones. ? Try to eat one whole pomegranate or drink one glass of freshly squeezed pomegranate juice daily. You can mix pomegranate in a fruit salad also. Another option is to grind one tablespoon of pomegranate seeds into a fine paste. Eat this paste along with a cup of horse gram soup once daily. This remedy will help dissolve the stones. Being high in fiber, kidney beans can be effective in the treatment of any kind of kidney or bladder problem, including kidney stones. ? Remove the beans from inside the pods, then put the beans in hot water. Simmer the water on low flame for hours until the beans become soft and tender. Strain the liquid and allow it to cool. Strain the liquid again. Drink it several times throughout the day to relieve kidney stone pain. This liquid should not be kept for more than 24 hours, as it will lose its therapeutic properties. ? You can also eat kidney beans in soup or salad. To conclude, you can try any of these natural remedies for treating kidney stones Ayurvedic medicenes are neeri syrup and calcury syrup and vrikkdoshhar vati for more queries inform me?

My friend who is 20 years old got hurt in the anal area while having sex. She was in a lot of pain. She fainted in some time. What could be the reason that she fainted?

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS, FICS
General Surgeon, Delhi
She must have developed an anal fissure. Anal Fissure is a painful condition and extreme pain can sometimes lead to fainting. She should have sitz bath at least twice a day. Keep the stools soft by taking plenty of fluids and fibre rich diet. She can take some stool softener at bed time for few days. She must avoid non -veg, fried and spicy food. A pain killer sos may help. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, a 11 mm stone will definitely need some medications in addition to dietary changes for dissolution. If there is hydronephrosis (swelling in kidney), do not delay endoscopic treatment. Otherwise, you can try some medications and dietary changes. Most important things to dissolve kidney stones are to keep your kidneys healthy and keep healthy urine flowing. How to keep the kidneys healthy? 1. Prevent or control hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and diabetes. 2. Exercise regularly; at least 30 min per day. 3. Take adequate natural vitamins and minerals in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables (except moderation in leafy vegetables, beans and tomato) 4. Reduce salt intake (<4 g /day). 5. Reduce animal protein (chicken, mutton, fish, milk etc) intake. How to keep your urine healthy? 1. Drink 3 to 4 litre of fluids/day to keep urine output > 2 to 2.5 litre/day. Make sure that your urine is not yellowish. 2. Increase good minerals like citrate, potassium and magnesium in urine. All these are abundant in fruits, especially citrus fruits like lemon and orange. 3. Decrease bad minerals like calcium, oxalate, uric acid and sodium in urine. 4. Do not reduce calcium intake too much. Calcium is required for bones, teeth, muscles etc. Moreover, too much reduction in calcium increases oxalate in urine leading to stones. 2 small glasses of milk per day is acceptable. 5. Non-vegetarian diet increases uric acid production. Reduce them. 6. Tea, coffee, tomato, greens, chocolate and beans are rich in oxalate. Moderation is required. With all these dietary modifications your kidneys may still be excreting large amounts of bad minerals and less of good minerals due to genetic predisposition. These can be checked in 24 hour urine tests. If so, you may need some special medications to prevent stones. However, if the size of stone is not decreasing after 3 months of medicines and food control, it is better to get it removed endoscopically, since it is a little larger to get dissolved easily.

Please increase your fluid intake specially during summer season to around 3-4 litres per day (more if you sweat a lot). Dehydration can lead to burning sensation while passing urine. If this does not lead to decrease in symptoms then show to a nearby doctor.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, the symptoms may reflect, UTI or Bladder Outlet Obstruction. I would strongly recommend alpha blockers to see the effect. A personal visit for examination is also required. Prostate enlargement can cause recurrent infections and this kind of pain.

I am 31 years old from Bangalore and suffering from pain and burning sensation after urination. There are no other symptoms or problems. It all started mildly on 25th Jun. Pain or burning sensation was sporadic and mostly I suffered at the early mornings. Then it used to be normal most of the times the whole day. I did all known home remedies like drinking more water, barley water, lot of butter milk etc… But the occasional pain or burning sensation was prolonging. So I consulted a general physician on 27th Jun and based on my explanation, he assumed it as UTI and prescribed me – Citralka syrup, Delbi-O tablet, Nicip-Plus tablet. I started consuming these for 2 days, but all of the sudden it got worsen and started to pain and burn almost continuously. It used to be severe, right after urinating and used to slightly reduce then. To mention, just before the pain got worsen, I travelled from Bangalore to Chennai in train. It was a horrible experience where I urinated more than 10 times that night and hardly slept for some 20 minutes. Then in Chennai, I consulted another doctor on 29th Jun (he is a general physician cum diabetologist). He diagnosed my urine sample (for Sugar, Albumin and Deposits) and the results are – Sugar and Albumin – Not detected Microscopic – Few Epithelial Cells are found. He informed me that the antibiotic prescribed by the previous doctor was not working and then prescribed me – Baloforce 100 mg, Urispas, Citralka, Amikacin 2 ml injection. With consumption of these for 3 days, the pain and burning sensation have gradually reduced. But still I have occasional pain/burning sensation, particularly during early mornings. In short, it all went back to my initial stage. Please note that the doctor asked me to continue the medicines for next 10 days. Lastly I reported to him on 1st Jul and still consuming the medicines. I am back to Bangalore now (4th Jul) and still I feel a bit uncomfortable but the pain and burning sensation are bearable. Please advise me should I consult an urologist at this point or shall continue the medicines and observe for improvement? Should I complete the full course? He asked me to take till 11th Jul – Is it needed? It is more than a week of time. Whether Urinary Tract Infection used to prolong so long? Please help me.

Urinary tract infections in adults - Prevention


Not all urinary tract infections (UTIs) can be prevented, but there are some steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing an infection.


Cranberry juice and capsules
Drinking cranberry juice may help prevent UTIs. If you have had recurring UTIs, higher-strength cranberry capsules are recommended. These are available from most pharmacists and supermarkets.

Don't drink cranberry juice or take cranberry capsules if you are taking warfarin (a medicine used to prevent blood clots).

Treat constipation promptly
Constipation can increase your chances of developing a UTI. Recommended treatments for constipation include:
increasing the amount of fibre in your diet (20g to 30g of fibre a day)

using a mild laxative on a short-term basis
drinking plenty of fluids

See your GP if your symptoms don't improve or if your child is constipated.

Diaphragms and condoms

If you're a woman, using a diaphragm for contraception can increase the risk of getting a UTI. This is because the diaphragm may press on your bladder and prevent it emptying completely when you urinate.

If you use a diaphragm and have recurring UTIs, you might want to consider changing to another method of contraception. There are 15 different methods of contraception to choose from.
If you get recurring UTIs and you use condoms, try using condoms that don't have a spermicidal lubricant on them – it will say whether it does on the packet.

Spermicidal lubricant can cause irritation and make it more likely that you'll get a UTI. There are lots of condoms that have non-spermicidal lubricant, so use these instead.
Other useful advice
The following advice may be useful in helping you keep your bladder and urethra free from bacteria:

drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and help clear bacteria from the urinary tract
go to the toilet as soon as you feel the need to urinate, rather than holding it in
wipe from front to back after going to the toilet
practise good hygiene by washing your genitals every day, and before having sex.
empty your bladder after having sex
