Rather than fear diabetes, please go and find out if you really have it. Get your blood tested. Do the following tests: FBS, 2 hour PPBS & HbA1c.

Mr. Lybrate user, first it should be diagnosed whether its related to renal problem or anything else. So that the tt will be decided. If you r sure that it is purely related to renal system, then along with continuation of more intake of water& bland diet, more fluids, tender coconut water try to take **homeo medicine liquid -sabal ser mother tincture, which is avaialable in homeo stores.{prefer brand like schwabe or bioforce or sbl. 15 or 30 ml.]daily take 2-3 times 15-20 drops in 1/4th cup of water for 10days& see the improvement. Incase if the swelling is increased or any pain +, then, its good to see the specialist or general physician for personal checkup.

Diabetes can create other problems it's better to consult an endocrinologist and get clinically checked and investigated to find the reason for the swelling in the meantime cut down on salt consumption and let her sit or lie down with foot end raised.

Dear Lybrate user, there might be recurrence of infection. please repeat your Urine investigation as it will reveal about the same. If the examination comes positive, please consult your doctor and take antibiotics for 5 days. If it comes negative, relax and have liquid diet for couple of days, take plenty water (4 litresa day). please remember a renal stone also shows same signs and symptoms of urine infection, and to rule this out a sonography of abdomen is required. Feel free to consult privately for further information and treatment guidelines. Thank you.

Dear patient, I can understand the stress you are going through regarding the enlarged prostrate, and also it is good that for you as you are not experiencing any symptoms related to it. There are certain medication to control the symptoms and enlargement of prostrate. The operation is advisable but without symptoms you can avoid it, also please do the PSA it is a test to confirm any other related disease I hope the very best for your health Feel free to contact in my private OPD if required.

There is no need to go for fb removal. You have to treat prostate first. You can take a trial of urimax-d for few days if your cardiologist allow you. Or you can get turp done after holding aspirin and clopidogrel for few days. For gb polyp you have to get usg abdomen done regularly at every 3-6 mnths and if size increases upto 10 mm or it increases in number (more than 3) then laproscopic removal should be planned.

My aunt is suffering from kidney failure. She is undergoing dialysis thrice a week. Recently we found that she is also suffering from Hepatitis C. Is it possible and safe to get kidney transplantation done before getting diagnose of hepatitis C?

MBBS
General Physician,
Few of the good medicines are contraindicated in renal failure. Interferon therapy can be used safely. Also new oral drugs for hep c are quite good though costly. Treatment of hep c and remission is a must before transplant. Else complications of hep c like chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis will occur fast because of immunosuppressive drug therapy needed for kidney transplant.

Strong Smelling Urine - 5 Common Reasons Behind it!

Strong Smelling Urine - 5 Common Reasons Behind it!

Many people are embarrassed to talk about their urine colour or urine problem with anybody, including their doctor. But, what people always forget is that strong smelling urine and the change in the colour of the urine is a serious issue. Your urine colour directly tells you about your health, especially your inner body. So, without being embarrassed you should consult a doctor, if and when, you find foul odour in your urine. Following are some of the reasons for the causes of strong smelling urine.

  1. You are dehydrated: Urine is not supposed to leave odour. It should be odourless, but if you find strong smell in your urine, you should consult a doctor immediately. The most common reason of foul odour in your urine is dehydration. If the amount of water needed in your body is not enough then, there will be less water in your body as a result the waste products will not be diluted in water being more concentrated making the urine darker and more odour. But once you start drinking water, it should go normal. Normally, this kind of situations occur in early morning when your water intake is less or not at all. But drinking lot of water will solve this issue immediately.
  2. More alcohol or caffeine intake: If you are habituated to drink a lot of coffee then it may happen that you find strong smell of coffee in your urine. Although it is not very problematic yet it is healthy if you reduce the intake of coffee in your daily life in order to have a healthy digestive system. Not just coffee but even alcohol could be the reason of irregular or need to urinate a lot more than usual.
  3. Bacterial Infection: There could be bacterial infection or kidney infection which could lead to strong smell of urine. In order to ensure you should go to a doctor and get important tests done. Then the doctor can suggest treatment according to your results and if all the results are normal then you could be suggested to maintain a balanced diet on regular basis.
  4. Imbalanced Diet: The problem can sometimes come from the use of certain vitamins from imbalances in your diet. There are substances like nitrates and phosphates in the urine which can give dark colour and odour. You should always have a proper diet and follow it in order to have a healthy digestive system. Eating lot of garlic and onion can also bring odour in your urine.
  5. Diabetes: If you are diabetic, it may be possible that you find dark urine and odour in your urine. It indicates that your sugar level is not normal and gone much high than normal. If you are not diabetic then it may be a sign of diabetes so you should get diagnosed immediately with your doctor.

There are multiple causes of strong smelling urine but most of them could be cured easily if diagnosed immediately. But in order to avoid this issue it is better to be careful with your diet and drink a lot of water. At least three litres of water a day is an absolute necessity!

Nope. But diabetes can affect kidney in long term so check serum creatinine and urine albumin baseline and every year thereafter. And also check blood. Pressure, cholesterol - lipid profile. Is your diabetes under control?

My son 13 years old. His problem is pass the urine at sleeping time. Kindly suggest me best solution.

Dear , this is a common problem in children of both sexes. It could be that he has some defect in lumber spine like spina bifida or some adhesions. In majority of cases no organic defect is found either in vertebral column or spinal cord. In most cases there is psychological problem or faulty habit. To decide what it is one wants to know about history like 1 did he have any dry nights at any stage of his life or from early childhood bedwetting continued? 2. When did it start? 3. Did it start after the birth of second child? 4. Is someone in the home is hard task master or strict displetarian? 5. Is his teacher rather harsh on him? 6. Does he have any close relationship with anyone in the family? in short this a sort of cry for help or attention seeking. So parents will have deal with tactfully and softly 1. Be soft and gentle with him 2. When you come home from work firstly inquire about him and talk to him about how his day passed. 3. When he comes home from school take notice of him and talk to him 4. At night ask him to pass urine before he goes to bed. 5 find out roughly the time when he wets the bed and arrange for an alarm take to toilet to pass urine. This is the best and simplest way of getting his brain to wake up and pass urine in toilet and not in bed. 6. Do not give him milk or any drink at bedtime. 7. Ask him to make resolution at bedtime not to pass urine in bed. 8. If he has problem at school with boys or teacher sort it out quietly. If somebody is harsh on him ask them to be soft on him 8. After all of these measure, if nothing works continue the same and add tab. Imipramine hydrochloride (impranil or depsonil) 25mg. One hour before his bedtime. If bedwetting happens in the daytime sleep as well then give it three times a day for at least 3 months and stop the medications to see whether he remains dry. If not then continue for 3 more months.
