Kidney stones blood vessels

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones blood vessels


Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones dating back to 1981(approximately 8 visits to the hospital). However, on my urinalysis somethings are very disturbing to me. Listed is Leuk Esterase, POC *trace. It also shows Squamous, Epith,POC (normal range 0-3,3-5) my range is listed as 3-5. The report also states there is a 5mm stone to the proximal right ureter with some mild to moderate hydronephrosis. Could you tell me what the Leuk Esterase, Squamous Epith and hydronephosis are.
1226479 tn?1267209290 Causes include lesions of the urinary tract, disease of the prostate, trauma, tumors, malaria or stones in the urinary tract. In your case as kidney stones are present, so these definitely need evaluation as nephrolithiasis or kidney stones are known to cause hematuria. Moreover it can cause further complications. My sincere advice would be to consult a urologist. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind regards.
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.
635114 tn?1222710503 The ER doctor then did a cat scan to search for kidney stones. He found no kidney stones but did say my atrophic kidney is completely shrived and did not think it was functioning. According to llab results my gfr has decreased by 10% in a year's time. As soon as they did not see infection or kidney stones I was quickly booted out. I reviewed my urinalysis and blood work results when I got home. My ph is 6 and chloride is high at 107.
Avatar f tn Incredibly, mutant, toxic nuclear painful and just plain HURT, A LOT, multiple kidney stones. Kidney stones can pass and poof - all gone. Then another - or a few others - can make their ugly journey into your ureter days or weeks later. This experience is not fun. I speak from experience. One little 5 mm just about made me grind the enamel off my teeth - but the lovely wretched staghorn model at a whopping 9+mm? And hooked and now on display in a window box?
Avatar n tn Most often it is related to urinary tract problems like kidney stones, inflammation of urinary tract, prostate enlargement, renal vein thrombosis, certain kidney tumors and polycystic kidney disease, blood coagulation disorders and anticoagulants. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn * Medullary sponge kidney - Very small cysts are found in both kidneys, and there can be kidney infections, small kidney stones and kidney pain. Medullary sponge kidney does not usually lead to kidney failure. * Medullary cystic kidney (sometimes called Nephronophthisis) - Very small cysts are found in both kidneys, and kidney failure may develop, requiring dialysis treatment.
Avatar m tn Obstruction Obstructed ducts near can cause nearby blood vessels to rupture. Tumor Urologic tumors, prostate, testis, can also cause hematospermia. Trauma Biopsies or other medical procedures can cause trauma resulting in hematospermia. In addition, proteinuria could be the sign of either 1) blood in the urine or 2) chronic kidney disease from high blood pressure, diabetes, or other inflammatory conditions of the kidneys. Followup with a urologist is recommended.
Avatar f tn It could even be a hemangioma, a collection of blood vessels. But difficult to tell. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn NO serves an important function in maintaining the proper dilation of blood vessels. A deficiency is associated with endothelial dysfunction and elevated blood pressure. This is a significant finding because for each 2 mm Hg increase in blood pressure there is a 7 to 10 percent increase in mortality caused by cardiovascular disease.
1310633 tn?1430227691 In my opinion, of more concern is your diastolic (bottom number). This number represents the amount of force on your blood vessels when you heart is at rest. The upper number indicates the amount of force when your heart beats. Please have your B/P monitored for a while. I suggest that you monitor it over the next few weeks. Check it at different times in a day and in different positions. This will give you a better idea of your true B/P reading.
1704625 tn?1310712361 frequent and urgent urination with unability to fully release bladder, decreased bladder control, abdominal pain mostly lower, about 3 weeks ago had sudden and harsh abdominal pain below rib cage that pierced through to my back, nausea no vomiting, headaches, lower back pain, extreme fatigue (had 2 seperate sleep tests done about 3 1/2 years ago, shows that I have narcolepsy which I take meds for but still tired), fluactuating weight changes, I am told for past 3 years that I have protein in my
Avatar n tn Blood in the urine suggests kidney stones. When there is diarrhea, white blood cells in the stool suggest intestinal inflammation. Plain X-rays of the abdomen. Plain X-rays of the abdomen also are referred to as a KUB (because they include the kidney, ureter, and bladder). The KUB may show enlarged loops of intestines filled with copious amounts of fluid and air when there is intestinal obstruction.
Avatar n tn thighs have more nerve endings and blood vessels then the stomach, so there is more a risk of blood and extra pain (ouch) That is why I stick to the stomach, I just aim between all the red blotches!
Avatar m tn I to had this problem doctor did a cat scan and I had an enlarged prostate put me on finastride to shrink it said that because of enlargement during long periods of sex blood vessels would pop due to thinning and stretching of vessels blood has not been as frequent as in the beginning 3 months ago seems to be getting better have only seen blood twice this month before it was almost every day after sleeping I'm assuming because of arousal the to times I did see it was because of longer sex sessi
446896 tn?1237806342 Hi Autumn! I see you are still having issues with your BP. I know we discussed ways for you to get over this fear, but either they didn't work, or you didn't try them. Working on a surgical unit in a hospital, I assume most of you can imagine the number of BPs and HRs I take in the course of my shift. Literally hundreds! And I take them on many people who have the same fear as you.
Avatar n tn Some of the causes are kidney stones; inflammation or infection; trauma; tumors; bleeding from prostate veins; blood clotting problems; and abnormal blood vessels. Certain medications could cause irritation, as well, which would produce hematuria. Some treatments, such as radiation or chemotherapy, could also cause it.
Avatar n tn That and/or blood vessels rupturing because of high blood pressure during an erection. This would explain why the bleeding stops after the ejaculation: IMO, the blood in the urine is only residual blood (mixed with semen) that got pushed into the bladder during ejaculation. The erection goes down, the skin goes loose and blood pressure goes down. The cut or blood vessel sort of semi-heals itself until the next erection/ejaculation which opens the cut again.
Avatar n tn kidney disease or kidney stones, trauma, inflammation, infection, abnormal blood vessels, tumors (of the kidney, ureter, or bladder). In order to properly diagnose the cause of hematuria, the urologist will want to order specific tests. Your physician may order an IVP (an X-ray study), urine culture and cytology (looking at the cells in the urine), and cystoscopy (looking at the bladder through a scope).
Avatar n tn Further, the symptom of pain below the rib cage may also be an indication of kidney stones, which could cause blood in the urine. Sometimes, heavy physical jobs could cause bleeding from the veins in the prostate gland, which is another possible cause for your husband's bloody urine. Regardless, he must see a urologist for an evaluation, since the earlier the problem is found, the easier it is treated without too many complications.
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar n tn These agents aren't known to cause kidney stones. Most kidney stones in the US are caused by our diet which is rich in meat protein. Calcium supplementation does increase the risk of kidney stones. As far as the blood pressure goes, he should probably have his dose of the lisinopril reduced. Alternatively, there are other agents such as calcium channel blockers, beta blockers or Angiotensine receptor blockers that can also be tried. I would probably avoid diuretics at this point.
Avatar f tn HI there it sounds like you have had quite an intensive work up if nothing abnormla was seen on these tests, you need to just follow up at regular intervals calcifications can be in blood vessels, kidney stones, fibroids take care
Avatar n tn tumors; bleeding from prostate veins; blood clotting problems; and abnormal blood vessels. Certain medications could cause irritation, as well, which would produce hematuria. Some treatments, such as radiation or chemotherapy, could also cause it.
Avatar n tn The normal work-up for hematuria is a IVP( kidney films with dye) or Ultrasound with KUB ( plain xray of the kidneys) and also a cystoscopic exam (looking into the bladder with a lighted scope). The Xrays look for stones and tumors of the kidney. The cystoscopy exam is necessary because small bladder tumors can not be seen on xray. The same for small bleeding blood vessels of the prostate.
Avatar f tn All I got from my Doc was that I'm being referred to a Urologist but according to the Urlogy office I probably can't get an appointment for 2 weeks. I was told by the urgent care Doc that I had kidney stones but the report states"Unenhanced CT Scan of the abdomen and pelvis with renal stone protocol shows pelvic phleboliths but no definite ureteral calculi".
Avatar n tn About half of the people who have blood in the urine without pain have a disorder affecting primarily certain specialized blood vessels of the kidney or glomeruli. While blood in the urine with pain is often the result of a kidney, bladder, or prostate infection or a stone or a blood clot moving through one of the ureters or the urethra. Treatment is usually directed at the underlying disorder.
Avatar n tn Diabetes can affect a number of different areas of the body including the blood vessels of the eyes, heart and legs causing blindness, heart attack and stroke and amputation. DM can also affect the blood vessels of the kidneys especially when it occurs in combination with high blood pressure. The two can lead to kidney failure. The elevated liver enzymes is probably unrelated. Does she have a history of pancreatitis or gall stones.
Avatar m tn The CT describes degenerative changes in the blood vessels that supply the heart and the left kidney and one of the internal heart valves with associated calcium deposition (associated with chronic degeneration) and possible stones in the gall bladder and the right kidney. Hope this helps. Take care!
