My father has one kidney and now has 49 grams prostrate we want to cure prostrate please guide. Operation or medicine? and if operation than which type of operation ?

General Surgeon,
I will advice for surgery either turp or lesar prostatectomy. Single kidney is not contraidication on cotarary I will say it is one of indication to avoid load as well as infection of that kidney. Turp or laser prostetectomy is more safe&reliable than trial with medicine.

Hi lybrate-user It is unlikely that you will be found unfit for a surgery like this. It is a very simple procedure. And if you have a condition that prevents any type of surgery, then medication can be given under exceptional circumstances. Please message me for any further queries.

Hi, lemon has a high potassium and citrate content. Both these help in dissolving existing stone and preventing further stone formation. The amount of water is more important than the type of water. In general avoid ro demineralized water. Natural minerals are essential for normal body and kidney function. Reverse osmosis removes most of the minerals from water. Aim to keep urine colour very pale throughout day and night. Keep urine output at least 2.5 litres per day. Avoid drinking a lot of water at one time and not drinking for many hours. Uniform and continuous hydration is important, even at night. Apart from good water intake, daily aerobic exercises, reduction in salt and animal protein intake and adequate calcium intake (reduced calcium intake can increase stone risk due to elevated oxalate) are important to prevent kidney stones. Wish you good health.

Since the last 2 weeks, I had difficulty in passing stools. I had to give a lot of pressure for it to come out, because of which I underwent a lot of discomfort and pain. It also got ruptured with lots of blood and protruding of the intestines at the anus. I fear going to the toilet to pass stools. Doctor has prescribed me some tablets and cream, along with a laxative. I am still apprehensive about the pain.

You are probably having acute anal fissure. Acute pain is the prominent symptom. To relieve pain apart from the medications which the doctor has given; apply any anesthetic gel like lidocaine 2% gel before going to stool and also before applying any medicine. Take hot water tub bath twice daily and after going for stool In Ayurvedic System of medicine; the problem of Acute Anal Fissure can be effectively treated with out surgery using Kshar Karma.

Overactive Bladder - Can Infection in Urinary Tract Lead To it?

Fellowship in Andrology, DNB-Urology , MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Urologist, Hyderabad
Overactive Bladder - Can Infection in Urinary Tract Lead To it?

An overactive bladder is marked by problems with one’s bladder storage system that results in sudden urge to urinate. Involuntary and leakage of urine is also a possibility in such a case.

The problem of an overactive bladder arises when the muscles of the bladder contract involuntarily. The conditions contributing to overactive bladder are:

  1. Excessive production of urine due to diabetes, poor kidney function or excessive fluid intake
  2. Medications that increase urine production by the bladder
  3. Acute infections in the urinary tract
  4. Abnormalities in the bladder, for instance, bladder stones or tumors
  5. Factors hindering bladder outflow such as constipation, enlarged prostate or earlier treatments for incontinence (loss of bladder control)
  6. Excessive intake of alcohol or caffeine
  7. Decline in one’s cognitive abilities due to factors such as ageing, thus making it hard for the bladder to comprehend the signals it gets from the brain
  8. Incomplete emptying of the bladder, leaving only a little storage space for the urine
  9. Constipation
  10. Neurological disorders

How it can be treated?

  1. Behavioral interventions help to manage overactive bladder effectively and without side-effects. They include-
    • Exercises to strengthen one’s urinary sphincter and pelvic floor muscles
    • Maintaining a healthy weight
    • Regulating fluid consumption
    • Planning a schedule for trips to the toilet
    • Employing a catheter to empty the bladder entirely
  2. Medications to alleviate the symptoms of incontinence and overactive bladder are-
    • Fesoterodine
    • Mirabegron
    • Darifenacin
    • Solifenacin
    • Trospium
    • Oxybutynin gel
    • Oxybutynin as a skin patch
    • Tolterodine
  3. Injecting small doses of Botox (Botulinum toxin), protein-bacteria, directly into the bladder tissues to partially paralyze the bladder muscles, thus delaying urination.
  4. Surgery to magnify bladder capacity

However, it is a must that you seek the guidance of a urologist on immediate basis. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an urologist.

Hi lybrate-user thanks for using Lybrate regarding your complaint of frequent urination at night time and pain in bladder. So it could be due to a number of reasons as you have not mentioned your age and any other history of disease you are suffering or medicine you are taking. It can be due to diabetes, enlarged prostate, urinary tract infection etc. I wil advice you first you done an abdominal USG and consult with an urologist.

New to Kidney Disease? Nine Things You Should Do

New to Kidney Disease? Nine Things You Should Do

The medical term used for kidney disease is Nephrosis and it is seldom also known as the nephritic syndrome. There are a lot of likely causes for this condition and it is detected by carrying out urine test. The treatment for Nephrosis is a long term treatment and done mainly to prevent kidney failure. The kidney disease is very painful and occurs in people of all age groups. It is very important for people who are new to kidney disease that they know about the nine things they should do to stay strong.

Important information on kidney disease:

  1. The feeling of helplessness on occurrence of kidney disease can be overcome by educating yourself. Individuals should learn everything about kidney disease and can gain vital information even from the Internet.
  2. It is very obligatory that the advice of the doctor be followed by an individual suffering from Kidney disease. It is not indispensable that the kidney disease always leads to failure of kidney and to keep your kidney healthy and stay away from any damage, it is necessary to comply with the orders of the Doctor.
  3. It is very important that you stick to a diet, which would keep you healthy and protect your kidneys from any further damage. You should be mindful on everything you eat and you can gain assistance on your diet from a renal dietitian.
  4. When you suffer from chronic kidney disease, the blood values become very important to gauge the condition of your disease and whether it is getting worse or stable. From time to time, the healthcare provider would check your urine and blood regularly and he would also monitor your blood pressure and blood sugar.
  5. You can ask help from the support group and accept their assistance. Your family is your best support system in times of need and so involving them is very important.
  6. You must make sure that you are getting the proper care you need and you need to educate yourself by communicating as well as asking questions.
  7. You can feel much better by being active, so do things that make you happy. You can exercise regularly, but after taking advice from your doctor. Your main focus must be to keep your heart healthy.
  8. A positive attitude is anytime helpful in healing a disease. You can listen to music that entertains your mind and helps you stay positive.
  9. It is not difficult to stay healthy even with kidney disease, as a positive feeling would eventually help face the kidney disease. You must plan ahead and be ready for kidney transplant without getting worried.

Most importantly, spread awareness and help people tackle the situation without any difficulty.
