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.
Avatar n tn Hi, Causes other than a UTI than can cause blood in urine include, kidney stones, underlying kidney disease, STDs that are not detected on routine urinalysis (chlamydia and mycoplasma infections), increased blood pressure, exercise-induced bleeding, general bleeding disorders, etc. Kidney stones up to 5 mm in size can pass through the urinary tract, though with significant discomfort.
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?
15905440 tn?1443866928 we have a long history of thyroid problems (hypo and hyper) that comes from my mother's maternal and paternal side (and includes my mother). My maternal grandfather also has also had kidney stones once that he managed passed his without it causing an infection. Also my mother has a high uric acid level, but has never had any symptoms caused by it.
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 f tn I have been diagnosed with MSK for a year now, and my specialist (in Aust) has put me on a low-purine diet to reduce the amount of uric acid produced -this is what causes the production of the stones in the kidneys. I know it is early days, but at 42, having changed my diet, I haven't had any stones recur for a year now!
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 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.
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.
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.
1832268 tn?1326819610 We brought him home and did twice daily under skin fluids plus standard recommended meds and kidney diet. We then took him to a kidney specialist who was trying to determine at what stage of Kidney disease he was at. Got his levels down a little more a week little later, things were looking promising and his energy levels were increasing dramatically. Less than a week later, he completely stopped eating. Took him to specialist after 2 days of not eating.
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.
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.
468408 tn?1208436609 excessive consumption of any vitamins causes extra work on the kidneys as they have to excrete all of this that we dont use ...so you try and be sensible...it took a look at my multitude of supplements and it is horrendous amounts...i have chosen the ones i need the most right now and the aminos are included...Bs...BIG 50 by gnc makes a great multi-B supplement and is cheap...calcium/magnesium at night..a good multi...milk thistle...glucosamine for my back...
Avatar m tn I suspect that the reaction to high vitamin D dosages indicates fat soluble vitamins malabsorbtion. One of the possible causes was gallbladder disease. I have not passed any kidney stones or anything, but after going to the ER with pain in my stomach, I insisted that they check my gallbladder(ultrasound) after reading possible causes of vitamin D malabsorbtion. Indeed I was found to have a fatty liver (Hepatic steatosis)along with multiple gallstones(cholelithasis).
Avatar f tn You would need to do a urine chemistry test after your pregnancy ends to find if you are at increased risk for stones going forward. Prenatal vitamins are unlikely to cause stones, and are of critical importance to a healthy pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Causes include lesions of the urinary tract, contamination during menstruation, disease of the prostate, trauma, tumors, malaria or stones in the urinary tract. These particles can be due to kidney stones also. I feel that without clinical examination, pinpointing a diagnosis is tough. Also a complete urine examination and culture may be required. Please consult a urologist for confirming the diagnosis. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn I'm pretty sure I also have IBS but I haven't been professionally diagnosed though, it is a pretty self explanatory disease and I know what causes flare ups in my IBS. Have any of you found a change in diet that really helps prevent kidney stones or flare ups? Will this get worse as I get older? Is there any chance that I will develop other small cysts in other areas now? Is it still OK to take fiber, probiotics, vitamins, and birth control? Is it OK to drink alcohol?
Avatar f tn The investigations required here include blood tests to determine kidney function, an X-ray to check for kidney stones, and an ultrasound to rule out any obvious pathology at the kidney level. If the father has the same condition as well, it is probably genetic and could be due to thin membranes. Ensure that you include vitamins A and C in diet to help strengthen the mucosa and advise your son to take a minimum of 2000 ml of fluids per day.
Avatar f tn Medications such as some antibiotics, prenatal vitamins and antidepressants, as well as drugs used to treat high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and kidney stones Oral problems, including oral infections such as gingivitis or periodontitis, tooth infections, and poor oral hygiene Sometimes the cause of a metallic taste can't be determined. In many cases, the problem goes away on its own after several months or longer.
Avatar n tn I wasn't able to take prenatals with my first or now second pregnancy. It causes kidney stones in me. I have a hard time with the calcium in them. As long as your eating extremely well and healthy you will be fine. I did get a prescription for folic acid though that i took in my first and now second pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I since have developed autoimmune disease(probably rheumatoid arthritis), a herniated disc on my lower back, and degenerative disc disease in general. The scar tissue from all the invasive kidney procedures causes me so much pain, I cannot sleep, and when I do, the pain will eventually wake me up! I will be going into detox in a week or so. I take 8 Norco a day, but have taken up to 14 on the bad days. I began to go to ER's to get the extra pills.
Avatar m tn What causes kidney stones? I heard being dehydrated cause them but I drink mostly water and juice. Would taking too many vitamins cause a stone? I have been taking alot of vitamins trying to relieve my symptoms. Especially vitamin c..
168348 tn?1379360675 I have had two complete round of bloodwork ($1,600 worth) to ascertain that mine is not due to thyroid or any other medical condition (I have history of calcium oxalate kidney stones, early small melanoma and small finding of thyroid cancer both in '07) and all thank goodness came back 100% normal except for the Vitamin D which was 9 on a ref. range of normal being 32-100.
Avatar n tn do not let this go any further I did and was hospitalized with a really bad kidney infection + kidney stones ouch..
Avatar n tn This would likely include a cystoscopy to evaluate for bladder cancer as well as a thorough prostate exam to evaluate for prostate cancer. If those tests are negative, then things like kidney stones (evaluated with a CT scan) as well as kidney diseases can be evaluated for. These options should be discussed with your urologist. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar n tn Research studies have shown that small bacteria known as Nanobacteria can also lead to placental calcification. This is the same type of bacteria that can lead to kidney stones. As the calcification occurs, the placenta will age prematurely putting the mother and the baby at risk. Other risks for premature placental aging are diabetes and high blood pressure in the mother.

592774 tn?1325397342 I am tempted to try one by the author of this article: .http://****.*** Any was intrigued by his hypothosis that cola does not cause stones, dehydration from drinking soda instead of water causes the stones.
