Kidney stones and red wine

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and red wine


Avatar f tn Stories like this make me so mad!! As for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> but my mom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> brother have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nothing helped them when they were in the worst of it either. The only thing i can suggest to you is this... can you get them removed /crushed via ultrasonic waves? I think they call it lithotripsy (sp?). THats what my mom had done..she sat in a hottub and ultrasonic waves thru the water shattered her stones.
29837 tn?1414538248 Is this an anonymous forum? ......:) may I ask a question? Thx! Understand desire for an occasional glass of wine. and, my little program ears perked when you said " I quit drinking 15 years ago and don't miss it at all." Did you stop drinking because of hep c or because it was time to stop drinking? Sure hope it's ok to ask you that. I ask, because I quit drinking 36 years ago. Do agree, that red wine is healthy! It's awesome that you have a healthy liver.
Avatar m tn Do you feel anything <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> does a good diet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> maybe medication help? I red that milk thissle was good for the liver, is that good to take as a supplement? I just got back from going to the store and sitting in the car I could feel some tightness in my lower right side. Did you ever notice your breath change?

Avatar f tn YES on the alcoholic beverages; during my stone producing time (I am stone free right now by some miracle) I had issues with fruit juices, too .. a stinging, burning sharp pings and pangs. Also different foods can set it off. Shelly may know more than me on the foods since foods weren't too much of an issue for me. But the running has something to do with it for certain ..
Avatar n tn Hi I have exactly the same thing red, itchy, burns when i apply any creams went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> got allergy tests done <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> nothing came back comes up bad after a night out, beginning to think its spirits - its only happened in the last 6 months skin red, tight, and itchy if you have any look let me know
Avatar f tn and I went to the hospital today for my 3rd round of kidney stones, I not only had a friend, but surprisingly, a nurse at the hospital, suggest drinking a SMALL (4-6OZ) glass of red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wine</span> in a hot bath to help me pass the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>, I haven't talked to my midwife yet, and yes I plan to, I was just wondering what some of you other mommies think of this? Again no bashing, I'm just curious here...
Avatar n tn don't get too upset yet. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> certainly can do it (that's how I first found out I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>)...they can cause a good amount of visible blood in the urine at times, even if they haven't yet moved into the ureter. As such you would feel no pain. I believe some infections can cause blood in the urine (do you have a fever?). That having been said, I would certainly get in to see a doctor right away in order to find out what the source is.
Avatar f tn I have swollen eyes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> top of nose so I look like a lion, huge red welts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hives <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itch like nothing I have ever felt. i am pretty much allergic to everything so i am used to this but this time it is NOT getting better only worse. It actually looks like I have chemical burns where stuff has leaked out of my eyes so under my eyes are purple clack in PERFECT circle. I broke down and found some prednisone in my house and took 20mg.
Avatar f tn I am a 21 yr old woman, and I'm starting to be worried about a few problems I have and I'm wondering what to do and if they are all related. Seeing doctors is not easy because of my "healthy age" and because I have other immediate health issues that take precedence (kidney stones). I have a history of a bit of anxiety following a diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder.
Avatar m tn You will have a 42 percent lower risk of getting upper respiratory infections. Research at Purdue University found that piceatannol found in red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wine</span> prevents or delays immature fat cells from developing into mature fat cells. The piceatannol exists in the seeds and skin of red grapes and blueberries. Ellagic acid found in Pomegranates can help protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays from the sun. The B vitamin riboflavin shows promise in reducing the frequency of migraine headaches.
Avatar n tn I own my own business and I am working hard to increase sales <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> get my mind of my heart. I have many complications with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>, gall bladder and now this so I can not take herbal supplements. I am also allergic to so many things that I have to be careful of everything I put in my mouth. This has only been the case for about 6 years and before that I was a healthy type A personality with out medical issues. Something has gone wrong or maybe it's an age thing 47 years old.
Avatar n tn Those using Topomax need to be especially mindful about drinking plenty of fluids due to increased chances of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>. Stoney will likely develop if fluid intake is not maintained. Looking forward to weight loss benefit as I gained 30# over the past 4 years on anti-depressents. Has anyone used this for bipolar?
Avatar n tn They say it can break down gall <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>. I never had symptoms of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> before, but at about day 3, I got some minor symptoms that went away in a couple of days. It is possible it broke down/eliminated some gravel. It literally sat on my counter for weeks before I started using it. My wife and I use it every day.
Avatar n tn One of my eyes became irratated and by morning was swollen shut <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> slightly red on the lid...Then my lips became red around the lip lining <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> small rash around then down to my chin, a mild red rash. no other area of my face, then the next day the other eye started. I took beyndrl and it seemed to help a little but when that wore off everything was back. I used a cortisone cream on the chin also.
Avatar n tn For years I would pass out for no reason and have bursts of energy then all of a sudden get real tired and would even have trouble w/ my memory and have trouble maintaing weight just all kinds of things and these spells would last for a couple of weeks before I would recover.At the age of 17 I started producing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> for years I kept switching doctors who just kept dismissing everything.
Avatar n tn she showed me with a mirror all the spots in my vagina that were red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> irritated. her plan is to treat the yeast infection first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then to heal the tear. i'm supposed to continue to use the estrogen cream and then use a salve of essential rose oil on top.
Avatar m tn Eat some stalks before going out or during your bar visit. Cure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> with lemonade. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> have become a common health problem. The number of people suffering from them has doubled in the past 13 years. If you are one of them then start downing lemonade. Lemon juice has the highest levels of citrate of any citrus juice, and that citrate helps dissolve any calcium deposits that will eventually turn into kidney stones.
541465 tn?1219431486 refrain from heavy Foods,Red Meat,fast food and anything fried in that cheap hydrogenated oil That is what causes heart-burn in the first place <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 3 other things tobacco; especially cigars,alcohol especially <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wine</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> liquor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> finally lying down opens up a working stomach so wait until it digests. If youre on 120 mg methadone you guys are in no way clean and sober. I feel sorry for you for what's ahead. they won't give it you in jail so let them kill you instead of capture you.
Avatar n tn The foul, sulfuric rotten egg/bad red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wine</span> burps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> flatulence (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> diarrhea) are mortifying. I have studied the entire human body (in my profession), and have close friendships with several internists. However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease.
Avatar m tn I went to doctor about some lower abdominal pain I had been having, and he suggested that I get an ultrasound of my kidneys <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> organs in the abdominal area. The ultrasound showed that I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> (2.5 mm) in both kidneys. My right kidney has a stone of 4 mm. It also showed that the right lobe of my liver is enlarged (135 mm) and that I have biliary engorgement. As I understand, various types of liver disease are typically characterized by enlargement of the whole liver.

1243347 tn?1268427670 1) Blood in the urine which begins in the morning looking like cloudy red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wine</span>. By the end of the day (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> after 4 - 6 liters of water each day) it is just pale pink. 2) I urinate about once each waking hour (none during the night).
187666 tn?1331176945 Hi, There are many types of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> not all may be detected in imaging studies. While the kidneys play an important role in regulating blood pressure, the presence of nonobstructing stones in the urinary tract do not directly cause blood pressure increase. Instead, the pain associated with the stone passage may be responsible for the increased BP. If all other diagnostic tests were normal, the increase may be due to essential hypertension which suggests no definite cause.
Avatar n tn I have, had pain in my vagina <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my anus too! but i just take 2 modrin and go to sleep because i can't deal with the pain. Hope we both can come up with a answer for this painful painful problem.
168348 tn?1379360675 yipee, I am still undecided on this vote <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my Hives have raged all weekend since I ate a curry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> drank red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>wine</span> , the car decided to have an oil leak this morning and then I got a huge bill for the oil leak! I went to the POst Office and had to stand for 24 mins feeling bad as they are as ever, short staffed. Its only 1-30pm here and I still have the rest of the day to feel good again, thats why I have come to Med Help.
Avatar n tn i head for some info thru a nurse friend <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> told me stuff like liver <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> problem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a hint of std. but after i read all the so similar stories here, im relieved but still worries a little. there a side of this incident that teaches me to practice more on safe sex, i believe that everythings happens for a reason, and the message for me is to look after my health more, limit encounters and practice safe sex..thanks heavens.....
Avatar n tn I began to feed mom a teaspoon of mashed potatoes when blood came spewing from her nose and mouth, black blood thick with clots that looked like garden slugs with bright red blood on them, this continued on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> off for almost 24 hours. I was able to remove most of the blood using about a ½ bottle of Shout and Tide in the laundry, some loads I did twice.
