Avatar f tn MRI results show at least two 2.0mm stones in each kidney. I passed my second stone (left kidney) a couple of weeks ago, and ever since then, my right kidney has been giving me on-and-off pain. Should I be concerned about this chronic, low grade pain? I always wonder if it's sand passing, but I'm not sure now. The last 2 or 3 urine tests I've had done have all shown a low level of protein in the urine.
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 Up to 20% of adults with kidney stones may have medullary sponge kidney; the corresponding figure in children is unknown. Among patients with kidney stones, hypercalciuria may occur in 40-50%, and recurrent gross hematuria may occur in 10-20%. Although no evidence indicates that risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher in patients with medullary sponge kidney, up to 5% of males and 35% of females have a UTI.
Avatar m tn It can be a temporary presence due to an infection or an indication of some thing else, such as a problem with the kidneys, kidney stones (as you mentioned) or diabetes.

Avatar f tn This got me thinking. When I was a teenager about 15 years ago I had kidney stones that had to be blasted. And it has me thinking maybe theres something wrong with my kidneys or maybe the kidney stones caused some damage that result in the kidneys not functioning well. Is that possible? I dont seem to have any other symptoms. I do have a slightly low iron also. Mostly I am afraid of having kidney failure. The doctor does not want to do any testing until I am done with my pregnancy.
Avatar m tn This could be due to certain foods or drinks, normal secretions such as sperm, pus in urine, bladder infection, cystitis, urinary tract infection, kidney stones, blood in urine, proteinuria, kidney conditions, acute pyelonephritis, prostatitis or gonorrhea. The urinalysis may indicate presence of infection, proteinuria, blood and abnormal substances. However, since this showed normal results, these causes may be ruled out.

Avatar n tn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proteinuria Treatment of FSGS can be through nutritional management or nonimmunosuppressive therapy to help some patients by decreasing proteinuria and improving kidney function. Here are some links about FSGS: http://renux.dmed.ed.ac.uk/EdREN/EdRenINFObits/FSGSLong2.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focal_segmental_glomerulosclerosis http://www.emedicine.com/med/topic2944.htm I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
622940 tn?1252518707 It was negative except for some calcium deposits in my pelvic area and a cyst on my left kidney. I was then scheduled for a cystoscopy which revealed no problems with my bladder. Urine was collected from my bladder for cytology. That was 9 days ago and I have not heard anything. However, my urine is getting darker and cloudier. I bought some UTI strips that reveal +++ for blood, a slight rise in protein and a high Specific Gravity.
Avatar m tn 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. Some relevant questions to keep in mind would be 1) when and how did you notice blood in your semen? 2) how many episodes have you had?
Avatar n tn In case of a normal kidney function, this may not require any work up. Persistent proteinuria is often a sign of kidney disease or other diseases, such as multiple myeloma, which is not common in children. One of the possible signs of kidney problem is unexplained swelling of the face and extremities. Since your son has swelling as you described , you should let your doctor know.
408409 tn?1344916781 I don't know for sure, but I think I may have MSK. I've had somewhere around 20 kidney stones in the last 10 years (I stopped counting around 20, it was making me too depressed.) I've had so many UTI's that I'm completely resistant to most of the usual antibiotics: Amoxicillin, Bactrim, etc., my infections laugh at them.
Avatar f tn Having had kidney stones with extreme complications in the past, I would simply say that anything you can do to protect those God-given purification systems is well worth whatever effort might be necessary to GO SEE A NEUROLOGIST. Trust me. You don't want that pain.
Avatar n tn I have been having a difficult time getting words out, and writing and typing have been more difficult. I have a history of kidney stones, as well as reproductive problems. I have always had irregular menstrual cycles, and have almost completely lost my libido in recent years. I also have been having a lot of joint and muscle pain, especially in my feet. I literally cannot walk some nights when I get home from work, and I also have very frequent headaches.
Avatar n tn Cloudy urine can occur due to urinary tract infections, proteinuria, kidney or ureteral stones, infections to the kidney and in renal failure. Urinary tract infections cause burning sensation while passing urine, back pain, urethral discharge, fever, chills and blood in the urine. Diagnosis can be made by getting an urine examination done along with a urethral swab examination. What is your age? Testing for sexually transmitted diseases also need to be done.
1002601 tn?1264527089 CrCL(adjusted for body surface) was 67 ml/min - the normal range is 75-115. From what I understand, this signals kidney disease or damage.Is this not true? Everything for the 24 hr urine collection were within normal range, however my urine output for 24 hours was 3450 ml, again - I drink a lot. Metabolic panels are fine, as well as liver,cbc, thyroid studies, lipids are fine.The only major thing off here is the CrCL.
1358341 tn?1282213443 Hello, my cat is not sick yet, it is a female of 19yo or more (found in September 1991), and she has 23,3mg/L of CREA (<24), so still not kidney, but my two other cats dyed of kidney with CREA that went up very fast. Veterinary prescribed Fortekor 2.5 one by day for prevention. Her Urea is normal, although she had drink and eat before blood test, it is 0,524g/L.

748543 tn?1463449675 What's more is that I find that dental malocclusion is frequently one of the principle causes of the TMD. The article went on commenting that MRI and CAT scans are among the biggest advances in diagnosis of TMD, that is just ludicrous.While those are valuable diagnostic tools they do not show what is the underlying cause of the misalignment. I frequently find that to be the malocclusion.
