1832268 tn?1326819610 We brought him home and did twice daily under skin fluids plus standard recommended meds and kidney diet. We then took him to a kidney specialist who was trying to determine at what stage of Kidney disease he was at. Got his levels down a little more a week little later, things were looking promising and his energy levels were increasing dramatically. Less than a week later, he completely stopped eating. Took him to specialist after 2 days of not eating.
2361255 tn?1339611918 He has been sick since I adopted him with one thing after another, and the diagnosis of kidney failure came at the worst possible time. To make a long story short, I moved back home 2 years ago after my Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer, and he passed away on January 2nd. Prince was diagnosed with the kidney failure on February 19th. It has really been a hard blow, because I feel focusing on Prince is the reason I have not fell apart from losing my Dad.
1916673 tn?1420236870 I would have to be completely honest and say, given her age and her kidney failure, and given that she has had (presumably) good dental care up to two years ago - I would forget about the dental work. It is true that according to some sources, bad dental hygiene is a major contributor to kidney failure. However, once a dog is in kidney failure, stress can be even more damaging. And that's without the high risk that anaesthetic will introduce.
Avatar n tn I have frequent UTIs that I take long-term antibiotics to prevent, but I still get UTIs sometimes, which have gone on to pyelonephritis several times, always affecting my left kidney. I experience a strong pain and a sensation that something is turning inside out or twisting sometimes when I urinate- I can tell if a particular urination is going to result in this pain because there is a delay before the flow starts.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with liver hemangiomas and gall stones last month by ultra sound, CT scan and MRI. I was also told that my liver enzymes were elevated (AST = 89 (normal 6-38), ALT = 180 (4-42), GAMMA GT = 53 (5-50) Protein = 88 (60-85)). No hepatitis virus was found. Do the liver hemangiomas cause the abnormality of liver enzymes? If you have an answer for this, please email me at Jeffrey_ye***@****. Thanks.
Avatar f tn But the thing I really think it has to do with my Kidneys. It's right where it hurt when I had stones before and when I had a kidney infection. But I have no diagnosis. Please help me i am absolutely miserable all the time.
Avatar n tn For kidney stones, drink plenty of fluids and water. There are many types of kidney stones and depending on that, avoid high protein diet and diet rich in calcium and oxalates. Avoid vegetables and fruits containing seeds such as tomatoes, lady’s finger, brinjal, capsicum, watermelon, guava etc. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

750172 tn?1256150676 We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat..

Avatar m tn I was just hospitalized for kidney stones and both my kidneys are inflamed also and I am now 34 weeks pregnant. I was in exactly one month ago. They actually thought with all those symptoms that I was experiencing apendictits. My ultrasound of my body showed nothing and of course like you said they can't do a CT, BUT...they can do a MRI (hence my pictures of MRI of my baby posted)! Maybe they should consider that! It might be worth checking out.

Avatar f tn And what's to be made of the claim that being too acidic can cause osteoporosis, kidney stones, and a number of other undesirable health challenges?

So let's take a look at the fundamentals of pH and how your body regulates the acid-alkaline balance of its fluids on a moment-to-moment basis. pH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline a liquid is.

Diets only work when they restrict calories. 3. Your colon is fine and does not deserve to be regularly “cleansed.” Colonics have been around since the early 1900’s (maybe earlier) and the fact that they are still being used is only evidence of the gullibility of humans. 4.

20852207 tn?1537766775 Lol Ugh changing diet I am not good at, they want me on so many restrictions for my cholesterol and kidney stones both... It would limit me so much, with kidney stones some stuff that one would think of as healthy they don't want me to have because of oxalate. I did cut out deep fried foods and now only use an air fryer, which I absolutely love!!! I also cut way back on soda and was doing really good until recently. Blah.
519661 tn?1264519808 i can understand his feelings to a point but i have been going through A LOT the past couple of months with having 3 kidney stones and still having pneumonia, etc. i tried to explain to him that it's scary having a baby and it's joking about the delivery room last night is to ease tension and fear of the pain, etc., but as soon as gracie is born it all fades away....all the pain, stress and nerves melt away as soon as you see your baby for the first time.

Avatar n tn I had my left kidney removed in 1997. I had sufferred from Kidney stones for years and often thought it was my kidney. As I got older and more familiar with my body i knew and the doctors knew it had nothing to do with my kidney. My Gallbladder has been checked and I have had numerous tests. At this point I just deal with it. Except today I decided to look once again on my own to see if i found anything new.
Avatar n tn frequent need to go, developed inability to hold, burning whilst peeing, abdominal pain, ovarian pain, kidney and flank pain, nausea, headaches, and discomfort during intercourse. Initial UTI test was negative (my dr said means nothing) and urine appeared healthy, however I am pending lab results. His best guess was that I have KIDNEY REFLUX (in my case resulting from frequent 'holding on' at work, not being allowed to leave my desk).
Avatar m tn Like Boron said it will show if it is functioning. Even if it's not functioning well and there are no stones you need to rethink surgery. Removing often does not relieve the symptoms, then you are just left with an unnecessary surgery, scars and nothing gained... and in a lot of cases chronic diarrhea.
