Avatar m tn Hi, If your kidneys are functioning normally, then you should not retain water and excessive consumption of water should not result in weight gain and thus I’ll suggest you to consult a physician for the same and seek an opinion. You might need to undergo the kidney function tests to ensure that your kidneys are functioning properly. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar f tn From the symptoms you have mentioned, he seems to be having a serious kidney infection which may have been caused or aggravated by obstruction due to the kidney stones. Reddish and cloudy urine indicates that there is hemorrhage somewhere along the urinary tract, if not from the kidney itself, and this can be accompanied by pus cells in the urine.
Avatar n tn Called an ambulance, said it sounded like kidney stones. Took an ambulance, plane and another ambulance to a hospital in the city-I live in the jungle in Costa Rica. The x-rays and ultrasound show a kidney stone. On the other side it also shows some white spots that may be calcium or other small stones. The doctor said the diarreah was unrelated. I stayed in the hospital overnight-no diarreah. Came home yeaterday and last night severe diarreah all night again.
1223946 tn?1281395958 After bariatric weight loss surgery it is common to have high urine oxalate and low urine citrate -factors that lead to kidney stone formation .So you need to be extra careful regarding your intake of water and food. Increase your water and fluid intake. Eat low fat diet as the amount of oxalate in the urine increases with the amount of fat in the stool after bypass surgeries.
Avatar f tn I had to take some time off from work because I cant walk right, it hurts, burns I feel like I have to go every 5 sec to the toliet, I feel I am not emptying the bladder and when I urinate it burns, I am using liners, because it will start dripping. The pain is too much and I just think about my baby, I lost weight and I am very tired of all I have been through.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with kidney stones at 28 weeks pregnant and my urologist pUT a Stent in my ureter and the pain was gone! But the stent is also not comfortable at all either I hated it!! hope all gets better!
Avatar f tn I am a 400 lbs woman. I have kidney stones that range from 3cm to 4cm and up. The one i have now is 4cm. I have stones in both of my kidneys.I also have been to 3 -4 different doctors. They all have said that I am too fat, they are unable to take care of me. The stones are calcium phosphate. What i would like to know, besides loosing weigh, how can they be destroyed? I have been watching what i eat, that has calcium in it, and i still get them? Please let me know what i can do.
Avatar f tn It took a while but the pain I was having was finally diagnosed as a kidney stone and I have another symptomatic one in the other kidney. But I wonder if kidney stones cause anemia because I suddenly became anemic just over a year ago and we have not been able to find a cause. Although I had occult blood in my urine due to the stone, it was not a lot. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this too or if anyone might know if stones can cause anemia?
Avatar n tn The reason I ask is because several of your symptoms, especially the gut probs and kidney stones are included in hyperparathyroidism which Drs don't look for very often. Do you have frequent headaches, joint and muscle pain, and fatigue? If so, check out and look at the symptoms listed there...This may not be what is going on, but it may point you in the right direction...Good luck...
15905440 tn?1443866928 For example, in my case, many years ago I had one of my stones sent to a lab and found that my stones are primarily made up of iron and calcium. As a result, since I live out in a rural area, with well water that is high in iron content, I DO NOT drink the water from my water well and I drink bottled water. My body does not absorb calcium or throw it off like others do, so I do not take vitamins with calcium added, beyond the normal daily requirements.
Avatar n tn kidney stones develop by dehydration, weight loss, exercise and diet, if they are not treated they can grow and just cause more and more pain if you dont get them treated the pain may go away but it will come back believe me i have had them myself and the treatment is absolutly nothing well worth having it doent hurt its just lazer treatment which sounds scary but isnt its just like someone is tapping in the same spot repeadedly for about an hour and thats it.
Avatar f tn My 60 year old husband passed small uric acid type kidney stones in August (per lab analysis of stones), had a blood test that showed high uric acid and was put on Allopurinol 100mg (twice daily) about two weeks ago. He recently lost weight after having an angioplasty with stent in late July (blood work shows normal range for cholesterol- blood glucose elevated at 117, blood pressure is normal, pulse 50 to 60).
Avatar n tn Does any of my symptoms sound like kidney stones? Or is these 2 doctors mistaking the side effects of Cipro for the symptoms of kidney stones?
Avatar n tn So can kidney stones cause weight gain?Most of it is in my stomach and my face looks swollen but my arms and legs look the same.And even though I weigh 148 I can still fit in my size 0 jeans.I was also checked for mono.
Avatar f tn I never had gall stones but with my first pregnancy i had kidney stones and had to have kidney surgery when i was 25weeks pregnant. That was horribly painful.
Avatar f tn I've been having a lot of pain on my right side, front, back and side and the pain takes my breath away. I had CT scans and ultra sound to determine if I had kidney stones. Then they sent me for x-rays with contrast and I was told I had a floating Kidney. The nurse for his office said there was nothing that I could do for the pain. "Just deal with it". Wow how can I when the pain takes my breath away and the pain is so bad that I have to lay down in bed until it goes away.

But I'm having more kidney issues.. am I alone on this?
1223946 tn?1281395958 I have never regretted my choice for WLS, but I think the medical profession need to inform patients when discussing risks and benefits, the possibility of developing stones and the consequences. Worst pain in the world bar none, and I'm a mother of 3 babies, lol!

Avatar n tn I've been experiencing some symptoms which I believe point to gall stones but my latest symptoms are throwing me a bit and i want to avoid unnecessary gall bladder removal and as such would like opinions. History: I work permanent night shifts: About 6 months to a year ago i had a few episodes whereby I had acute upper central abdomen pain around 4am which disappeared in a space of seconds within 1h.
Avatar n tn s came back ok they told me to stop taking antibotic,I did but cont with the pain in flank always after I'm done urinating after my stream I always drip white cloudy substance, my pain is not severe and tylenol usally helps, I was wondering could this be stones? I always read that stones are very, very painful my pains not that bad.
Avatar n tn Dark spots that appear on kidney ultrasounds can represent cysts, abscesses, abnormalities of the blood vessels, kidney stones, old calcifications or kidney cancer. Cysts on the kidney are usually harmless and large cysts may need surgical treatment if they are producing symptoms. Each of these condition mentioned above will present will associated symptoms and signs like burning urination, increased frequency of urination, weight loss etc.A CT scan will definitely be helpful.
Avatar m tn i am in exactly the same boat as you un diagnosed recurrent kidney infections its very frustrating and worrying i know.
Avatar n tn Don't know that this med was for sure the reason, but my doctor has found no other explanation and I have been tested for everything and poked and vibrated and they can find nothing. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I was on Topomax for 4 yrs, and 8 kidney stones. Worst 4 yrs of my life!!!!
Avatar f tn I expect I will return to a 'regular' diet one of these days, but not yet. You also mentioned kidney problems. I have a damaged kidney from years ago, and when I get dehydrated, I get little tiny kidney stones that it takes a while to clear. Again, mine is an usual situation, but I did get some small kidney stones while on Diflucan (a rather high dose for several months, which is unusual) and it has taken a while for them to clear.
