Avatar f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, Kidney stones may be due to dehydration, diet, chronic stress, genetics, and even cadmium poisoning.If one parent had kidney stones, there is an increased risk in his or her children.Kidney stones tend to be recurring, typically reforming within seven years.In serious cases of kidney stones an ultrasound that breaks down the stones may be advised. I hope this helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn I suffer from what is called Polycystic Kidney Disease (google it) which causes chronic kidney stones. Many people have this disease with no signs until they are much olde. When their kidneys begin to fail them. Diarrhea is related because when the stone is stuck in the ureter ( the tube leading down to your bladder from your kidney) this sends a message to your entire digestive tract to stop.
Avatar f tn - calcium oxalate struvite uric cystine The rarest form of kidney stones is Cystine stones. Cystinuria is an inherited condition that affects the amount of acid that is passed in the urine. Struvite stones are caused by recurrent kidney infections. Uric stones are caused when there is too much uric acid in the urine with rheumatic conditions like gout. Calcium oxalate stones can from with too much protein in the diet, too much calcium and Vitamin D and through dehydration.
452063 tn?1324078516 I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
Avatar m tn I spent the next couple of months having those attacks less frequent with a healthy diet and proper exercise of running. One month ago I had severe pain radiating from my kidneys. I have had kidney stones and cysts in the past so I immediately went to a high water/cranberry juice intake. I took a urine test at the doctor and it showed that there was hematuria. At work my legs started to hurt and go numb. The numbness went away and now I have muscle twinges. I also have constipation.
Avatar m tn It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
Avatar m tn These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is dehydration. Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common.
Avatar m tn have your doctor do some blood work to make sure that it's not a kidney problem. They usually show up in blood work. Also dehydration can cause kidney problems. and if your kidneys hurt is' the lower back where it's going to show. Figure out how much water you drink in a day (vs. when you have a beer etc.) and any other medical conditions you might have. (And dude, you are 26 years old, what is up with you typing like a 12 year old??
Avatar m tn It can also be due to other things like cystitis, and kidney stone or polyp in the bladder. You would feel the kidney stone but maybe it is a precursor to it coming through. So there are lots of reasons for blood in the urine. Do you actually see the blood in the urine or did the urinalysis show a few red blood cells. If a few red blood cells that isn't anything to worry about. If a large amount seen on the urinalysis, then it could be a problem.
Avatar m tn I am living in Denmark. I have been diagnosed having MSK. All stones have been removed from my kidneys and I have no longer infections. But my problem is heavy pain in the kidneyes and my pain specialist has problem to find the right medicine to take care of that? We are not sure if the pain is nerve pain or caused by the MSK. Has anybody experience in this area?
Avatar m tn I was in the ER 3 times and was loaded up with Toradol and Dilaudid for basically 48 hours straight. After passing the stones my kidney, uteter pains etc were mostly gone in 48 hours but i started getting bad leg cramps in the calfs. This has been ongoing for 5 days now and I feel like i just hiked up a mountain! My doctor told me to drink lots of Gatorade and V8 juice but that is not helping. Could this be a problem that i need to go back for blood work? clots?
Avatar f tn This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
Avatar f tn My daughter is a cosmetologist and she told me the topo causes the hair follicles to close. What has fallen out, wont grow back, but the hair loss should stop when you discontinue the drug. The Topo really messed up my cycle too. I think my adrenals took a hard hit from just two weeks on the drug. For me it was not worth it. I was stupid, depressed and started having panic attacks on it. I would loose blocks of time. Huge blocks.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Higher than normal potassium is not very unusual in kidney disease, but it is important to discount other potential causes - including kidney or urinary tract stones. An ultra-sound and white blood cell (WBC) count will help identify if stones are a problem. Phosphorus is also too high. Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys.
2361255 tn?1339611918 As far as Meds for kidney disease goes,Dogs with kidney failure will end up getting ulcers, throughout their digestive tract, and because of the ulcers, the vet will prescribe anti ulcer medications, as well as anti nausea meds. Dogs with kidney disease will also experience a rise in their phosphorus levels, so typically a phosphate binder is given. And when the dog is not drinking, and not staying hydrated enough, then it is time to start administering Sub-Q fluids.
Avatar n tn It's the back-up of toxins in your kidney from dehydration that causes the odour. I would literally eat a curry and then within hours smell this on my clothes in the underarm area! Diluted Apple Cider vinegar in water a couple of times per week will not only reduce the odour significantly but will also help to breakdown the kidney stone too. Also eating pickled foods 2 to 3 times a week will help significantly.
Avatar n tn The high back pressure generated can result in poor kidney function and ultimately lead to kidney failure. Causes include from BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy), ureteral obstruction by metestatic lymph nodes in some cases of cancer, stricture disease, obstruction secondary to stones, etc. These are problems that are usually urologic (taken care of by a urologist). It would be impossible for me to say what factors came into play in your parents individual situation.

Avatar m tn Hello, There can be many causes for dark urine. These include dehydration, certain foods, kidney infections,bladder stones or infections, liver disease or hematuria. Presence of blood in urine is called hematuria.Causes include lesions of the urinary tract, contamination during menstruation, disease of the prostate, trauma, tumours, malaria or stones in the urinary tract. I feel that without clinical examination,pinpointing a diagnosis is tough.
Avatar n tn Hello, Dehydration is the most common cause for dark yellow urine. The other causes are kidney infections, bladder stones or infections, and liver disease may make the urine look darker. Some food or medications may make the urine look darker. The final diagnosis can only be made after a thorough physical examination and investigations like urine examination, ultrasound kidney and bladder and liver function tests. You need to get an evaluation done from a urologist.

Avatar f tn My Doctor has tried pills for vertigo,blood pressure and sinus infection and nothing has worked. A little or no headache. Last month I had 2 large kidney stones in my only working kidney. This sent me into renal failure for about 2 weeks.After 2 operations this was corrected and I now have proper kidney function.The dizziness started about two weeks before my kidney problems and is still a problem.
Avatar n tn Other causes could be dehydration, kidney or bladder infections, kidney stones , urinary tract infection, vaginal secretions or possible sexually transmitted disease. KIdney infections or pylonephritis will almost always be associated with flank pain, pain on urinating as well as fever and general symptoms of infection.
Avatar f tn Five days ago I began having pain in the lower left abdomen. Could this be kidney stones? I had them 8 years ago. Or does the interstitial cystitis develop very rapidly? I did not have any unusual symptoms before the UTI. I think the UTI was caused by dehydration from the prep for a colonoscopy. I was unable to keep anything down including the prep before the procedure.
1194973 tn?1385507504 Recurrent urine infections could be due to various reasons. Most common cause is stones in kidney which is blocking urine pathway. Other causes are changing sexual partners frequently, pregnancy, diabetes and of course childhood infections. The urine can also be due to retention of urine anywhere in its flow due t obstruction. The obstruction can be due to abnormality of structures since birth, stones or diseases like tumors in brain. Females are more prone to urine infections.
Avatar n tn Hi Low back pain associated with urinary symptoms may suggest an underlying urinary tract condition. Differentials may be kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and musculoskeletal pain. I suggest that a urinalysis, urine culture and a baseline kidney, ureter and bladder CT scan may be done to help rule out the above differentials. Low back pain in the absence of urinary tract problems may need to be further evaluated.
Avatar f tn Because I'm being treated for the kidney, the rest has went on the back burner. My doc says my stones are from dehydration and I know diabetes could be a culprit but as far as I know eye problems with diabetes are different than mine. I am wondering what could be causing all this? It is going to be a couple weeks before I see my Doctor and I'm so tired of this misery. Any help is appreciated. Also I apologize for the typing, I'm posting from a device other than a PC.
