Avatar n tn You need to watch if the dog is in pain, having problems urinating, etc. I take it these are bladder stones? They are more common then kidney stones. It is considered a major surgery to remove them and they may become chronic. You definitely have to watch the diet. Ask your Vet for a recommendation on the food. There are dog food companies that do make special diets for animals with stones!
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 I also have kidney stones, I am looking to learn more about what kind of diet or foods are good and bad for the kidneys. I would like to eat healthier and avoid the foods that are not good for my kidneys. Does anyone know of a website or have information that could help me out. So far all I know is drink a lot of water, and spinach is not good for the kidneys... Thanks everyone!
Avatar n tn The urologist will then be able to help identify a specific diet for her type of kidney stones or as with me I personally have a type that no diet will control it. I have medullary sponge kidney I will make them all my life. There are also medications that can help control kidney stone making as well. Which her urologist should review and try with her.
Avatar m tn Antioxidants reduce the amount of inflammation in your body, which helps the kidneys function properly. The potassium in cauliflower is known to prevent kidney stones. Kidney stones can lead to kidney infections and eventually chronic kidney disease. Eat cauliflower raw with a hummus dip or steam it with a squeeze of lemon. Cauliflower is also delicious smashed with low fat sour cream and fresh parsley.
Avatar m tn my family lives by cranberry juice because we have such a bad history of kidney stones, and i really do believe it helps. but eat for optimum health, keep your body active, drink a LOT of fluids.. doing these things should help you get though, and may even improve your symptoms.. you never know..
Avatar n tn I have dealt with kidney stones for many years now some I've had to have surgery for others just had to deal with pain for weeks waiting for them to pass. I know that I have 5 dormant ones on my right side and 4 on my left side right now. They keep referring to them as dormant anyhow. I have been having some very bad days pain wise and having issues with being able to urinate much regardless of how much water I drink (I pretty much only drink water every day and my intake is high).
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 am worried because it was horrible passing the stone. I have been reading that lemon juice is good at preventing calcium stones, but it may be bad for phosphate stones, so I am not sure if I should keep with the lemon juice. I should also note that I do not have insurance(its a long story How I was able to get the stone analysed), and though I am trying to get insurance, I still want some advice to prevent these stones. Thanks in advance!
Avatar n tn There are some natural ways of preventing onset of UTI. Drinking 100% cranberry juice has been shown to be beneficial. You may discuss this with your physician.
Avatar f tn A typical day's diet includes egg, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt, squash, cooked carrots, spinach, chicken or fish, lime juice in water, and unsweetened cranberry juice in water. You'd be surprised how many different ways you put those bits and pieces together. Ha. It worked for me, however, and I no longer crave sugar like I once did. I've dropped a good bit of weight (which I needed to do) and feel pretty good except when the Lyme bugs are bugging me.
757137 tn?1347200053 Magnesium will get rid of kidney stones, and cranberry juice will prevent them.
284738 tn?1283110419 If you are having blood in your urine, I would talk to the doctor and see if they can do a UA to see if you have a kidney infection!! Cranberry juice will help to prevent bladder infections but not get rid of them. The acid in Blueberries will help to alleviate symptoms of a bladder infections, but neither will help a kidney stone! I would definately talk to the doctor again to let him know of the blood in your urine!
Avatar n tn Last year EWSL was attempted 3X to remove small, stubborn stones in my right kidney. Stones were not blocking the ureter but were causing pain for months. After 3rd attempt at EWSL it was decided to try laser treatment cystoscopically. This was "partially" successful. Some of the stones were removed, some he was not able to reach. I was left with a stint which came out before I made it home from the hospital.
Avatar f tn Have you been scanned for kidney stones? I am having my kidney stones removed on Friday by lithotripsy. They are extremely painful, cause scarring and reflux and will continue to damage the kidney until removed. You are NOT a freak, nor were you born one. This problem happens to many, many people and please make sure you're persistent with your own care. As far as things helping, I try to avoid meat and spinach which makes it worse and also drink alot of cranberry juice and water.
552450 tn?1218201658 Over time, obstruction can lead to serious complications, including urinary tract infections, kidney stones and kidney failure. Ectopic kidneys are also associated with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR), a condition where urine backs up from the bladder through the ureters into the kidneys. Over time, this can lead to infections that also can destroy the kidney. It is important to discuss this with your urologist to better understand your condition.
Avatar m tn I have been drinking plenty of water and added cranberry juice into my diet to see whether I could clear this up myself. No luck so far. I appreciate any responses. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Just thought I'd share this since I found this site a few weeks ago when it started. And there's nobody IRL I really want to tell... I've been passing kidney stones for the better part of a year. After the first one I started regularly drinking cranberry and cherry juice due to all the advice about that....
1660289 tn?1302560398 After a lot of research I found that you can give dogs, cats and people Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (with mother) which will dissolve the crystals and stones. I dissolved my kidney stones with ACV and Aloe Vera juice, but Aloe Vera is toxic to cats (Not sure about dogs), but the vinegar has done wonders for my cat. I also got some cranberry powder from Amazon which I mix with his food.
Avatar m tn Cranberry juice is known to help if you have a bladder infection (Cystitis). I have not heard of cranberry juice helping to dissolve or get rid of stones. I would suggest that you stop drinking the cranberry juice and stick to plain water. Some time ago on the kidney stone forum someone did mention drinking lemon juice to help dissolve the stones.
199177 tn?1490502134 If you pass them, be sure to get them analyzed to see what they are mado of....sometimes it is something in your diet that can be avoided...kidney stones consist of different stuff in different people....
Avatar f tn It seems pretty extreme that they just removed your gallbladder so quickly. Was your gallbladder developing stones? They could have removed the stones with an ERCP. I would suggest drinking water, cranberry supplement tabs and a mixture of Natural 100% cranberry juice(NOT "cranberry cocktail" which has added sugar) with some pineapple juice. The above mixture of juices always relieves pressure pain in my kidneys.
1025106 tn?1251864670 bubble in urine can b from too much protein in your diet. Kidney stones can be from too much protein in your diet. and Yess, kidney damage can occur. Change your diet, and cut out alot of the protein. NO red meat, milk, cheeses, etc, etc.. eat lots of fruits and veggies, and DRINK water and cranberry juice alot..
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Kidney stones at times dislodge by themselves and the pain disappears. There are numerous speculations in alternative medicines which say that the stones disappear on medication, but Allopathy does not have any such treatment. Drink plenty of fluids, try apple cider and cranberry juice. These tips may help to flush out the stone if it breaks (but less likely).
Avatar n tn My question is can a boy that young already develop kindey stones and what causes them? Is there anything that can be changed in his diet to help prevent them?
389974 tn?1331018842 He had an order of crab cakes, 2 glasses of iced tea, and some cranberry juice. Swampy was scheduled to work that night so he walked home to do that. Upon arriving home, he found a note saying that he didn't need to work. So after a few more minutes, Swampy decided it was time for bed. He lay down to sleep on his back. 1 minute later it felt as if every one if his back muscles were pulled, ultra sore, and bruised. Shifting from side to side did not help.
560857 tn?1216132922 Taking plenty of fluids will help avoid developing further stones and infections. Addind citrus fruits and cranberry juice to your diet can also help treat a mild infection naturally.
Avatar m tn It can slightly burn on rare occasion but nothing out of the normal. My drinking diet is not the best in the world, orange soda and fruit juice with no water. I cant think of any other symptoms or any other changes since the pain has started. Nausea, but I have had frequent nausea my entire life. Everything I have read about kidney pain has stated it comes in waves of sharp pain, which is about the exact opposite of what I have been feeling.
Avatar f tn Furthermore, I drink a lot of Lite (or light depending on brand) cranberry juice; cran is good for you and the Lite variety has the least sugar. Some natural stores have what some people call a "renal tea" which is a mix of different herbs that are good for the urinary tract. For some people with mild infections, or who detect infections very early on, cranberry pills can help. Corn silk tea is a native American remedy which you can find in capsule form now.
