Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG. -b/w take 2 tsf neeri syrup with water daily

5 Signs You Might Be Suffering From Kidney Failure!

5 Signs You Might Be Suffering From Kidney Failure!

Kidneys are an important part of the human body. From filtering wastes from the blood to maintaining the blood pressure and red blood cell count in the body, the kidney does it all. Both the kidneys are essential organs and should there be any discomfort in the kidneys, one should consult a medical practitioner as soon as possible. Kidney failure is a common problem in people. This issue manifests itself with certain signs and symptoms. One should listen to these symptoms and act quickly before the condition worsens. Here are some of the signs and symptoms of kidney failure.

Interestingly, in the initial stages, kidney failure portrays no symptoms. It starts developing slowly and steadily causing discomfort in other parts of the body and hindering the working of other organs.

  1. Weakness: If you are suffering from kidney failure, you will start feeling weak. Weakness is however not a symptom which can confirm a kidney failure. Weakness is caused due to many other health issues and thus, you need to verify with other symptoms to be sure of the fact that you are suffering from kidney failure only.

  2. Shortness of Breath: You may start experiencing heavy breathing right after doing some rigorous work. In fact, you might feel shortness of breath or be panting for long moments after climbing just a set of stairs. Shortness of breath is quite common indicating that the body is getting tired after doing work. Such indication, more than once a day, calls for an immediate check up of the body.

  3. Lethargy: While most people, especially the young generation to those in the early thirties jokingly declare themselves as lazy people; lethargy, however, is a symptom of many diseases. Various health issues develop if you feel lethargic of working. Apart from kidney failure, diabetes is also manifested in lethargic body movements. At times, just getting out of the bed in the morning seems very tiring and one continues to lie on the bed even after he/she is fully awake.

  4. Stomach Pain: If you experience pain in the stomach, especially in the sides, then it should be immediately checked by a medical practitioner. Doctors say that kidney failure can bring about stomach pains.

  5. Unusual Urine Discharges: This would include clear urine discharges which indicate that the kidney has stopped filtering the waste products.

Thus, these are some of the most important and common symptoms of kidney failure. If you notice any of these, it is advised to visit a doctor for a check up.

You can minimise recurrence by increasing water intake to about 3-3.5litres daily. This procedure is helpful in removal of already formed stones.

7 Secrets To Kidney Health
7 Secrets To Kidney Health:

You can do a number of things to keep your kidneys functioning properly and keep them as healthy as possible at every stage of life :

1.Hydrate, but don’t overdo it:

It’s always a good idea to drink enough water, drinking more than the typical four to six glasses a day probably won’t help your kidneys do their job any better.
Eat healthy foods. Your kidneys can tolerate a wide range of dietary habits, kidney problems arise out of other medical conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes. Because of this, he suggests you follow healthy, moderate eating habits to control weight and blood pressure. Preventing diabetes and high blood pressure will help keep kidneys in good condition.

2. Exercise regularly:

If you’re healthy, getting your exercise is a good idea because, like healthy eating habits, regular physical activity can stave off weight gain and high blood pressure. But do be mindful of how much exercise you do, especially if you’re not conditioned.“Overexerting yourself when you’re not fit and healthy can put a strain on your kidneys, especially if you exercise so much that you cause excessive breakdown of muscle

3.Use caution with supplements and herbal remedies:
Excessive amounts of certain vitamin supplements and some herbal extracts may be harmful to your kidneys. Talk to your doctor about any vitamins and herbs you plan to take.

4.Quit smoking:
Smoking can damage blood vessels, which decreases the flow of blood in the kidneys. When the kidneys don’t have adequate blood flow, they can’t function at optimal levels. Smoking also increases the risk of high blood pressure as well as the risk of kidney cancer.

6.Don’t overdo it when taking over-the-counter medications:
“Common non-prescription pills like ibuprofen and naproxen (NSAID’s) can cause kidney damage if taken too regularly over a prolonged period,” If you have healthy kidneys and use these medicines for occasional pain, they probably don’t pose a risk.If you take them for chronic pain or arthritis, you should talk to your doctor about monitoring your kidney function or finding alternative ways to control your pain.

7.If you’re at risk, get regular kidney function screening. “If you have either diabetes or high blood pressure, your physician should screen for kidney dysfunction as part of routine care for those conditions,”

If you have urinary infection, have you done your urine culture/sensitivity? You should do that. Probably the antibiotics you are using are not effective against the infecting organism.

Hello, Red colour urine may be commonly caused by 1.Blood. include urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate kidney or bladder stones. 2.Foods. Beets, blackberries can turn urine red or pink. Medications. Rifampin an antibiotic often used to treat tuberculosis, can turn urine reddish orange Tumors of the bladder and kidney, which can cause blood in the urine, are more common in older people. So my advice to you kindly go for Urine R/M and USG prostate and review with reports

It is not necessary to drink so much water. You should drink that amount of water so that you pass atleast 2litres of urine daily. So if you drink 3-4litrs per day its enough. And water intake has no effect on belly fat loss.

Self Tips For Preventing Kidney Diseases!

Self Tips For Preventing Kidney Diseases!

Chronic kidney disease, also called chronic kidney failure, describes the gradual loss of kidney function. Your kidneys filter wastes and excess fluids from your blood, which are then excreted in your urine. When chronic kidney disease reaches an advanced stage, dangerous levels of fluid, electrolytes and wastes can build up in your body.

In the early stages of chronic kidney disease, you may have few signs or symptoms. Chronic kidney disease may not become apparent until your kidney function is significantly impaired.

Treatment for chronic kidney disease focuses on slowing the progression of the kidney damage, usually by controlling the underlying cause. Chronic kidney disease can progress to end-stage kidney failure, which is fatal without artificial filtering (dialysis) or a kidney transplant.

The kidney has multiple functions, and one of it is to act like a filter and remove out waste substances. These filtered out substances are excreted through the urine.

Common kidney diseases including infections, kidney stones, diabetic effects, hypertensive effects, tumours, chronic kidney disease (effects of both hypertension and diabetes) and kidney failure.

Features of kidney diseases:

  1. Infections usually start with symptoms like burning with urination, change in colour of urine, and low abdominal pain.
  2. Kidney stones are usually identified by their characteristic pain in the sides of the back
  3. Smaller stones up to about 4 mm are passed through urine on their own.
  4. However, for larger stones, external shock waves are used to break them into smaller ones, which are then eliminated by the kidneys.

How Can I Prevent Kidney Disease?

The key to prevention or delay of severe kidney disease is early detection and aggressive intervention -- while there's still time to slow down the progression to kidney failure. Medical care with early intervention can change the course of chronic kidney disease and help prevent the need for dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Diabetes and high blood pressure account for two thirds of all cases of chronic kidney disease. By aggressively managing diabetes and high blood pressure with diet, exercise, and medications, you may be able to prevent kidney failure and help keep as much kidney function as possible.

Infections:

  • To prevent urinary tract infections, proper hygiene is very important.
  • Thorough washing of the external urinary tract and use of clean underwear and toilet facilities is very important.

Kidney stones:

  • Intravenous injections of pain relievers to help in pain control immediately on seeing the patient. If pain persists, an additional shot may also be required.
  • Patients also have accompanying nausea and vomiting and may require antiemetics to control these.
  • At the time of discharge, these medications can be continued at home.
  • Hydration is very important, so drink at least 3 litres of water.
  • Urine should be strained to ensure the stones have been passed
  • Monitoring urine output including quantity and colour for any changes is also important. If urine is turbid, water intake should be increased.
  • Avoid oxalate-rich foods. Most kidney stones are composed of calcium oxalate, and therefore foods rich in oxalate should be avoided. Beets, spinach, okra, tea, chocolate, soy, etc., should be minimised
  • Reducing intake of salt and animal protein also helps in preventing recurrence. Legumes are a good option for proteins.
  • Calcium supplements, if being taken, may need to be reduced or stopped. This can be managed by including enough calcium in the diet.

Chronic kidney disease: This is seen as a side effect of hypertension and diabetes.

  • Constant monitoring of both BP and sugar levels is very essential.
  • Keep cholesterol levels under check as suggested by your doctor
  • Medicines should be taken as prescribed and not altered without medical supervision
  • Quit smoking if the habit is still being continued
  • Improve physical activity levels, which will also help control BP, sugar, and cholesterol levels
  • Weight monitoring is essential to keep check, not just on kidneys but overall health.
  • Kidney diseases put a person in a vicious cycle of health problems, so early detection and prevention are advised.

Here are some self-tips to prevent kidney diesease:

  1. Get Tested Regularly - At your next checkup, and at least within the next year if you haven't had these tests done:
    • Ask for a urine test to see if you have excess protein, glucose, or blood in the urine.
    • Ask for a blood pressure reading
    • Ask for a fasting blood glucose test
    • Ask for a creatinine test. 
  2. Control Diabetes - If you have diabetes, work with your health care provider to keep your blood sugar levels under the best possible control. A program of diet, regular exercise, glucose monitoring, and medications to control blood sugars and protect kidney function can help.
  3. Control High Blood Pressure - If you have high blood pressure, work with your health care provider to get your blood pressure within target ranges. A program of diet, regular exercise, and medications can help.
