Kidney stones causes diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones causes diabetes


Avatar n tn Hello, Nephrolithiasis or stones in kidneys does not cause dizziness but if you are taking any drug for kidney stones, it can be responsible for the kidney stones. You need to consult a physician and get the other causes of dizziness like postural hypotension (blood pressure falling with change of position), internal ear problems and cervical spondylitis or compression of cervical spinal nerves ruled out.
Avatar n tn Hi, How many times have you experienced this ? Was this present prior to the treatment of your kidney stones? What kind of treatment did you undergo? This may be case of dry orgasm or orgasm with no seminal discharge. The following may lead to a dry orgasm: "Retrograde ejaculation. In this condition, semen is forced back into the bladder instead of out through the penis.
Avatar m tn It is unlikely that you have a kidney cancer, although you are right, without contrast one cannot be 100% sure, but almost always a kidney cancer causes at least some deformity of the kidney that is apparent even on a non-contrast scan. For a kidney cancer to cause a varicocele it would need to be big, and would have been apparent. Pain in the testicle can be "referred" to the flank, just like kidney pain can be referred to the testicle.
Avatar f tn My father has kidney stones in both kidneys. He has undergone both laser surgery as well as actual removal surgery to take care of the bulk of them. As of his last ultrasounds/x-rays, there are still stones present, but they have not been causing any problems. As of yesterday, he has been presenting with blood in the urine. Is it likely that the stones could be causing this blood, even without pain?
Avatar n tn I have been reading many message boards and feel am self educated about kidney stones by my own body. Each kidney stone is unique in severity of pain. The bigger ones don't always have bigger pain. The largest I have passed was5 ml. I just dont know what to do anymore. Im tired of passing them, tired of being in pain, tired of missing work and could be in danger of loosing my job. The painkillers are great , but takes a day or so to get back into functioning mode after taking them.
Avatar f tn Hello, Cloudy urine is caused by blood in urine, UTI, bladder infection, kidney stones, gonorrhea and other causes. Glucose can be seen in diabetes mellitus, pheochromocytoma or it can be transient stress induced.Urobiliongen in urine is seen in UTI or hepatitis. Trace protein can be seen in normal persons also. The presence of 3-5 RBCs in urine can be seen in urinary tract infection; kidney stone etc. and is an indication of further testing. Any test result should be correlated clinically.
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 infection, diabetes, trauma, hypertension, cancer- kidney, bladder; interstitial cystitis (I.C.), endometriosis in the urinary tract.
Avatar n tn I have diabetes type 2 which I suspect is a birth defect from my father's exposure WWII to a chemical such as 2-butoyxethanol (it causes endocrine disruption that sometimes is called diabetes) Anyway, these diabetes (Type I & Type 2) are considered to be autoimmune things and that is what 2-butoxyethanol does ... a lot of autoimmune things and blood sugar high or low ... or blood pressure high or low and many things related to the endocrine system, are what it attacks.
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 n tn Hi, Was a urinalysis and urine culture done? Was any other diagnostic exam done? Urinary stones, an underlying obstruction, history of surgery or instrumentation , and diabetes to name a few may cause some recurrent urinary tract infections .Have these been ruled out? Do keep us posted for your answers.
Avatar n tn There are a wide variety of causes ranging from cancers of the bladder and kidney to stones. Routine evaluation includes an IVP ( a dye test of the kidneys ), cystoscopy ( looking inside the bladder with a lighted scope ) . When these do not yield a cause, CT scan is performed. Other less common causes include a condition called papillary necrosis and AV malformations ( a connection between the artery and vein of the kidney).
Avatar n tn I haven't heard about kidney stones & diabetes before at all. In general, it's best to drink plenty of water to keep the concentrations of minerals in our urine from being extreme. I've read "somewhere" that our urine should be nearly colorless with jsut a bit of yellow; darker yellow means we're not well-enough hydrated. I use that rule of thumb myself, but do check it out with your child's doc. Perhaps others will post with good info to share, too.
738333 tn?1232971075 Thanks for the reply i had a kidney scan when i was pregnant which revealed that my right kidney where i get the pain is slightly bigger with urine around it what is this ? and causes this ????
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 n tn I have read about laser and laproscopic techniques to remove kidney stones. In your opinion would these techniques would be a reasonable option for me, or should I accept the "no exit strategy" diagnosis and just learn to live with it? I am 61 years old, have HBP and diabetes (latest A1c 5.7%). Thank you.
Avatar m tn High uric acid levels (hyperuricemia) may not cause significant adverse effects in most people however some may develop gout, kidney stones, or kidney failure resulting from high uric acid levels. As kidney function declines and large amounts of proteins are passing into the urine, swelling of the hands, feet, abdomen and face may occur. The stages of CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) are mainly based on measured or estimated GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate).
Avatar n tn Recently I've been wondering if there is some occassional liver swelling that causes problems in that area. I've had a few enzyme tests and they have been normal. I wonder if gallbladder can "hide" from tests at times. Is this too low for gallbladder? If it was gallbladder would meds cause pain? Any possibilities outside of gallbladder or liver? Why would a med cause pain? After 2 yrs could pain ever = emergency?
Avatar m tn 1) The pain in your back could be your kidney or kidney stones or your liver. 2) Substituting all meals for alcohol will result in weight loss initially. 3)As for your breath, it smells different how? If it is sweet, that could be in indication of diabetes. My biological father drank himself to the grave at the age of 34. Please, please get help! Deciding you need to quit is the first step. Talk to your doctor about your health concerns and get into some type of program.
1522652 tn?1291241954 I know that there is a link beginning with my chronic uti's as a child, to my severe pms as an adolecent into adulthood, and then on to my chronic kidney stones and infections as an adult, and then the loss of my kidney, as well as the problems I'm experiencing now. My question is what specific tests do I need to request to accurately check my thyroid, parathyroid, and my calcium levels? Also, are there any specific questions that I need to ask.
Avatar n tn I was also suspected of having cystic ovaries, but my Dr didn't follow up on it...over the next few years I developed kidney stones (7 in 2 years!), gall stones, unrelenting heartburn, back pain, muscle spasms,bowel problems, bone aching, difficulty remembering things, and constant urination.(5-7X/ night, every 30-45 min during the day...Imagine trying to work on an ambulance and deal with that!)...
Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones and basicly try to eat right and all to advoid having them and only have been able to go see a doc about that when they do flare up about every 4 years at an ER. I have been searching online and this is the 1st place that anyone has even hinted at the 3 periods a month is "normal" for being in a menopausal stage.
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.
999101 tn?1249893787 Did they reply yet? I sent 2 e-mails. OK you state you are diabetic, did you know the two most common causes of Kidney Disease are 1) Diabetes 1) HBP???? It is called "Diabetic Kidney Disease". Most Kidney Diseases attack the nephrons causing them to loose their filtering capacity. Damage to the nephrons can happen very fastly often due to posioning (even OTC meds) or trauma. But thegood news for you is... most Kidney Diseases destroy the nephrons SLOWLY and silently.
Avatar f tn The risk factors for recurrent UTI in females are sexual intercourse, use of spermicidal products, having a first UTI at an early age, and having a maternal history of UTIs. Most common causes are stones in kidney, changing sexual partners frequently, pregnancy, diabetes and childhood infections. The urine can also be due to retention of urine anywhere in its flow due to obstruction. Inherited factors may be related to recurrent UTIs in few females. Drink plenty of water.
Avatar m tn When i was in college i had sever abdominal pains and blood in my urine on and off for about 2 weeks and the doctors diagnosed it as kidney stones each time but no stones showed up on 3 different CTs and I never passed the stones that I know of. The pain never returned. a few years later I had elevated liver enzymes and had a liver biapse which came back as a fatty liver. a few years later I started getting really clogged up ears during the fall and winter.
489228 tn?1291535054 There are some doctors who don't believe it works mainly because they don't believe you can have pain from stones in the kidney. Dr Wolf performed the surgery on me personally last Aug. He will perform it on those that he thinks medically qualify for needing it if you are willing to go to Michigan. Several others have had their doctors do the procedure within the last year as well. AFTER MUCH PERSONAL RESEARCH I WOULD HAVE TO RECOMMEND DR WOLF'S PROCEDURE OVER LITHO...
