Hi, Long standing diabetes effects the kidney. Creatinine level of 4 is very high and denotes kidney failure. It can not be treated with medicine alone & you might need dialysis in future. Be in regular follow up with your nephrologist for further evaluation & management. Thanks.

Hello , I am 21 years old , I wanted to can that Can drinking water with lemon prevent kidney stones? Also, I have been told not to drink city water. What is the best water to drink?

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Palakkad
Lemon contains citric acid which decreases the acidity of urine; this prevents the formation of calcium oxalate and uric acid stones. Lemon juice helps break up kidney stones and dissolves them so they can pass easily from the Kidney to the bladder through urination. Too much intake of lemon juice in a day is not good. Normal water you can drink. Daily 3-4 litres of normal water intake is recommended. Boiled and then properly cooled or Luke warm water is preferable to drink. Homoeopathic medicine like berberis, Lycopodium, Hydrangea, etc which helps to dissolve stones easily and eject out through urine. No side effects in HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES.

I'm a 23 years old man. I want to know what precautions we should take to escape from kidney stone. Is constipation related to kidney stone?

Hi, consuming 3 - 4 litres of water per day helps one to escape fro kidney stone. Intake of banana plant stem as a vegetable is also very helpful. Constipation is not related to kidney stone.

My younger brother is being treated in RML for Chronic Kidney Disease from last one year, and recently his dialysis has been done with a machine used for a HIV patient. Recent HIV test is positive, is it curable. Sr. Doctor suggested some medicine to take upto six months after that the transplant can be done. Is it okay, as usually we hear that there is no cure for HIV?

BAMS
Sexologist, Nashik
If your brother is HIV positive then it is not curable. But if he is just suspectable that he can be positive then the 6 month course will be beneficial. Take the medicines and repeat the ELISA test.

Kidney Stones - How Homeopathy Can Help You?

Kidney Stones - How Homeopathy Can Help You?

Kidney stone formation is the most common kidney disease, and people who have had it, would immediately be reminded of the severe pain (loin to groin) in the back.

How stones are formed?

  1. The kidney functions as the body’s filters in removing wastes from the body through urine.
  2. Most of the waste is in the form of salts and when there is excessive salts and reduced amount of water, there could be formation of crystals or stones in the kidneys.

Symptoms

  1. Reduced amount of urination
  2. Blood in the urine due to damage of the urinary tract structures
  3. Painful urination with burning sensation
  4. Swollen abdomen
  5. Nausea and Vomiting
  6. Fever and chills

Benefits of homeopathic remedies
Kidney stones are highly likely to be recurrent. A number of factors contribute to their formation. Homeopathy aims at treating the whole body and not just dissolving the stones. It offers various remedies, which ensure the stones are completely dissolved and also prevent recurrence.

Remedies

  1. Berberis Vulgaris is prescribed for the following conditions:
    • Very useful in left-sided stones where patient experiences pain radiating to the ureter, bladder, and urethra and down to the thighs.
    • Burning sensation with urination
    • Slightly red or green urine with mucus (increased consistency of urine)
    • Increase in pain with any kind of physical movement
    • Soreness in the lumbar region of the kidneys
  2. Cantharis is suitable for the following conditions:
    • Paroxysms of renal colic with cutting and stabbing pains
    • Severe pain before and after urination in the urethral area
    • Constant urge to urinate, but very little flow
    • No relief even after sitting and straining
    • Bloody urine (slightly pinkish tinge), if there is damage to internal structures
    • Sharp tearing pain when this damage happens
    • Thirst and aversion to all fluids
  3. Lycopodium is one of the most reliable homeopathic medicines for right-sided kidney stones.
    • Works better for right-sided stones, where it dissolves them completely
    • Severe backache experienced by the affected person prior to passing urine, which reduces after urination
    • Great urge to urinate, even at night
    • Presence of sediments (red or yellow) in the urine
    • Abdominal bloating with distention along with right-sided kidney pain
  4. Hydrangea, also referred to as the stone breaker, reduces chances of recurrence of kidney stones in the following conditions:
    • Right-sided pain
    • Blood-tinged urine
    • Increased frequency of urination
    • Lots of white sediments in the urine

      If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist.

Dear sir, my father is a ckd patient. His last creatinine level was 4.5. He once undergone paracentesis 3 months back. Again doctor recommending him to go for paracentesis. My question is whether paracentesis is to be done on regular basis. Is there any side effects? How many times this process can be performed.?

Haemodialysis is done 3 times a week. The a v fistula created for this may get blocked and need to be done again. Peritoneal dialysis is another way to do it but frequency to do it is dependent upon creatinine levels.

I am a 74 year man with diabetes since 25 years and it is under control by medicines and insulin injections. If I make long travels by car, I want to urgently use toilets on the way for passing stools. If I could not see a toilet I usually passes in my underwear and pants while in the car itself. It has become a regular habit now resulting in difficult situations. Kindly advise whether it is due to irritable bowel syndrome and what is the remedial measure I can follow before or in a journey. When the urge comes I cannot control it.

There are many potential causes of fecal incontinence, including: diarrhea (possibly due to an infection or ibs) impacted stool (due to severe constipation, often seen in people of your age group) inflammatory bowel disease (crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis) nerve damage (due to diabetes or spinal cord injury) more than one cause for fecal incontinence is a strong possibility. Alot of cases of bowel incontinence, occur without a clear cause. First things first is to figure out the cause, if at all possible. This is a process, no single simple test will be able to figure it out. You will need to see a gastroenterologist and discuss your entire medical history. During a physical examination, a the gi may check the strength of the anal sphincter muscle using a gloved finger inserted into the rectum. Some of the tests that may be needed for figuring this out are: stool testing endoscopy anorectal manometry. A pressure monitor is inserted into the anus and rectum. This allows measurement of the strength of the sphincter muscles. Endosonography. An ultrasound probe is inserted into the anus. This produces images that can help identify problems in the anal and rectal walls. Nerve tests. These tests measure the responsiveness of the nerves controlling the sphincter muscles. They can detect nerve damage that can cause bowel incontinence. Let me try and give you an overview of what kind of treatment options you have. Recommended treatments vary according to the cause of course. Often, more than one treatment method may be required to control symptoms. Diet changes may be helpful: eat 20 to 30 grams of fiber per day. This can make stool more bulky and easier to control. Avoid caffeine. This may help prevent diarrhea. Drink several glasses of water each day. This can prevent constipation. Medications. Try these medicines to reduce the number of bowel movements and the urge to move the bowels: imodium lomotil hyoscyamine methylcellulose can help make liquid stool more solid and easier to control. For people with a specific cause of diarrhea, such as inflammatory bowel syndrome, other medications may also help. Exercises. Begin a program of regularly contracting the muscles used to control urinary flow (kegel exercises). This builds strength in the pelvic muscles and may help reduce bowel incontinence. Bowel training. Schedule bowel movements at the same times each day. This can help prevent accidents in between. Surgery may be recommended for people whose bowel incontinence is not helped by noninvasive treatments. There are many different surgeries that can be done. But I don; t want to get into this unless we know its really necessary. I strongly suggest you look into instituting the dietary changes mentioned above, after that medication may be needed. But above all, you need to be in touch with a good gi. I hope this helps. Feel free to follow-up and I will do my best to talk you through all this.
