Its important to remember that kidney stones are not uncommon and are easily treatable if followed up on. The other conditions are clinically rare.
Avatar m tn Recurrent kidney stones are found renal tubular acidosis, medullary sponge kidney, Dent's disease (genetic disease of the kidney), hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria and Crohn's disease. Since the pain comes before periods too, it can also be due to endometriosis. It can also be due to a STD, may not have started with it, but may have caught in between if you are now sexually active. Non specific bacterial infection or fungal infection can also cause recurrent UTI.
599170 tn?1300977493 I realize others are more comfortable and want to know .. I have had a few CT Scans for kidney stones within the past 5 yrs so I know nothing is out there that doesn't belong, but I really don't want to know my destiny unless there's something out there for more prevention than I'm already doing. Just my 2 cents. Alzheimer's goes the same way with me. I'l pass. But no judgement passed on those who want to know.
Avatar n tn This characterization contrasts with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease and with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, in which cysts predominantly develop along the cortical collecting tubule or the entire nephron, respectively. Medullary cysts give the kidney the gross anatomic appearance of a sponge. In the absence of hematuria, renal calculi, or infection, the disease is an asymptomatic nonprogressive condition. Pathophysiology: The kidney is the primary organ affected.
Avatar m tn Hello and welcome, Cystine stones are usually rare in teen age. The disease that causes cystine stones runs in families (autosomal recessive) and result from a genetic disorder which causes cystine to leak through the kidneys and into the urine in high concentration. This leads to crystal formation that tend to accumulate into stones. Assessments of cystine excretion, stone analysis are few investigations which may help. Do write to me again with more details. Keep us posted on how he is doing.
Avatar n tn But then again the specialist said we still have a small chance that we might suffer from polycystic kidney disease. We were basically told we have to wait until shes around 20 to see if she will develop any other cysts on the other side to say 'yes she suffers from this horricle disease. As a mother I fell very helpless as I cannot do anything to prevent or give a medicine to make all this go away. Are there any other parents out there who have gone through such experience.
Avatar n tn Hi, The way I understand your urinalysis showed rbc numbering at 3-5 /hpf and the normal reference for your laboratory was less than 3? Is this correct? Were you able to visibly or grossly note bleeding in your urine? In other laboratories, urine RBC's numbering up to 5 may still be acceptable. So I feel that in your case, this may be a mild case of microscopic hematuria. In the presence of mild hematuria,other factors have to be noted like bacteria and WBC levels.
Avatar f tn Recurrent kidney stones are found renal tubular acidosis, medullary sponge kidney, Dent's disease (genetic disease of the kidney), hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria and Crohn's disease. For oxalate stones you need to restrict (not totally stop) foods which are high in oxalate like beans, legumes, dark green leaves, egg plant, spinach, beets, chocolates, wheat barn, rhubarb and nuts and fruit cake. Avoid Vitamin C as its metabolism produces oxalates in the body.
Avatar f tn They can be caused by any type of thing that blocks the flow of urine in the urinary tract which can be in your urethra, bladder or kidney. Kidney stones, for example. Kidney disease. Anatomy that is unusually shaped. You could have a genetic predisposition. Men should also have their prostate checked if they have chronic UTI's as that is a common cause of this recurrence. Not sure why anyone would opt to not treat a UTI since they are uncomfortable.
Avatar m tn At this point , there seems to be no association between polycystic kidney disease and kidney stone formation. Do you have any associated symptoms of nausea, vomiting or severe abdominal pain?
Avatar n tn A bleeding disorder may also cause kidney problems. You ave mentioned of kidney stones. I suggest that she be also worked up interms of her serum calcium and hyperparathyroid function.I also suggest that a genetic test be done to determine underlying genetic mutations in some genes responsible for blood coagulation ( aside from factor 5).Fibrinogen levels, protein C and S, homocysteine levels may also be determined.The pesence of an antiphospoholipid syndrome may also be assessed.
Avatar f tn Recurrent kidney stones are found renal tubular acidosis, medullary sponge kidney, Dent's disease (genetic disease of the kidney), hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria and Crohn's disease. Diet high in animal fiber, dehydration, and low calcium intake can also cause recurrence of stones. Please discuss these possibilities with your doctor and see if you suffer from any of these disorders. Treating these would help reduce pain.
Avatar f tn However, she feels that the kidney failure was not caused by anaplasmosis, but that she may have an auto immune or genetic kidney disease that caused this. It's all so surreal. However, today Aly showed more energy and even greeted me at the door when I came home. (Yesterday she was so letharic and seemed disinterested and depressed.). Today she ate some turkey meat and a cup of Acana Wild Prairie Regional Formula. That was extremely encouraging.
Avatar n tn It seemed to have went away when I got older, but I'm pregnant and now I'm lactose intolerant again. -I'm prone to kidney stones. I've had them about once a year ever since I was 8 years old. I've never been told what type of kidney stone I have. -I have teeth discoloration. When I was younger, we had asked a dentist about it, but he said it was just caused by too much fluoride (but now I've read it could be a sign of Celiac) -I have psoriasis, though it's not a bad case of it.
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 I ended up developing Chronic Kidney Disease (totally unrelated to the surgery - more likely a genetic component). I do wonder if perhaps I should have learned to live with the pain. But I am the queen of freak reactions. I really do have infinently bad luck. I think my situation happens in less than 1% of cases. If there was no renal problems in your family history and surgery is presented as an option - I'd do it again. Even knowing about the Chronic Kidney Disease I may have done it again.
Avatar f tn Has he performed xrays and/or scans of the kidneys to look for defects (genetic) or kidney/bladder stones? You did mention about food early in your post. What food was this? Did you manage to get any information about what the breeder was feeding the pup before it left the mother and what age was the pup at that time? The Pepcid clearly isn't working, so look to your vet for an alternative anti-nausea medication.
Avatar f tn Hi Christina. I think the peach stone wouldn't have caused the kidney disease. The stones do contain toxic substances, but in relatively small quantities. The swimming in stagnant water is a possibility, but quite honestly, I think this kidney disease began maybe 2 or 3 years ago, so again it may have adversely affected an already existing condition, but not necessarily caused it.
Avatar f tn I know I've flushed out kidney stones. I've figured out that the cause of my kidney stones is high fructose corn syrup in some of my favorite foods like fig bars which I've given up. I would not be surprised if that had something to do with my gall stones.
1949260 tn?1325170677 I am gpimg to mt doctor in feb and hopefully getting actual medical advice but I am trying not to freak myself out. Should I expect kidney stones?
Avatar n tn Fatigue Muscle weakness Palpitations Bone pain Joint pain Difficulty concentrating Difficulty sleeping Memory problems Feeling depressed Feeling anxious Abdominal pain Nausea or vomiting Heartburn Constipation Frequent urination Nighttime urination Kidney stones Fractures Thinning hair Headaches"
Avatar f tn I am a patient at the Mayo in Rochester and have an IgG4 Sclerosing disease diagnosis. Currently the disease is not affecting or "attacking' my pancreas. It is, however, affecting my submandibular salivary glands and my pulmonary function, which is how I ended up at the Mayo's Pulmonary and Critical Care unit. I've been on a lengthy (18 month) prednisone treatment, just tapered down to 0 a few days ago, and unfortunately my symptoms are recurring.
Avatar m tn Now I am 40 and for the past 10 years I have still been having all of the above problems plus I have had Kidney Stones, they now say I have Hypothyroidism, High Blood Pressure, Osteo-arthritis, really bad joint pain, muscle cramps, tingling in my extremities, bad fatigue, sleep problems, seizures that they can never seem to find a reason for, edema, I have become lactose intolerant, and I was diagnosed with foliculitis but, I also have a rash on my hands and legs and buttocks that is not consis
4159057 tn?1350426384 Cystinuria is a cause of persistent kidney stones. It is a disease involving the defective transepithelial transport of cystine and dibasic amino acids in the kidney and intestine, and is one of many causes of kidney stones. If not treated properly, the disease could cause serious damage to the kidneys and surrounding organs, and in some rare cases death. The stones may be identified by a positive nitroprusside cyanide test. The crystals are usually hexagonal, translucent, white.
Avatar m tn Stage 1 (90+) Normal kidney function but urine findings or structural abnormalities or genetic trait point to kidney disease Stage 2 (60-89) Mildly reduced kidney function, and other findings (as for stage 1) point to kidney disease. 3A (45 - 59) 3B (30 - 44) Moderately reduced kidney function. Stage 4 (15-29) Severely reduced kidney function. Planning for endstage renal failure.
Avatar m tn I raised their doses back up to the more massive doses and added magnesium and B-6 to their program and no more kidney stones. I think they developed the kidney stones because they were not taking enough vitamin C." Why did Linus Pauling die from cancer if he took all that vitamin C? Linus Pauling, PhD, megadose vitamin C advocate, died in 1994 from prostate cancer. Mayo Clinic cancer researcher Charles G. Moertel, M.D.
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 older. When their kidneys begin to fail them. The main symptom is high blood pressure beginning as a young adult. why? Because your kidneys are working too hard fighting off the cysts and they are not filtering correctly. I was diagnosed with PKD in July last year after a car accident.
Avatar f tn Since you have pain in the kidney region and do not have kidney stones as of now, then the possibility of ankylosing spondylitis should be looked into. This is a genetic condition. Diagnosis is by typical X-ray changes of intervertebral joints (maybe this is what you have been disagoned as degenerative disc disease), sacroilitis (inflammation of sacro-iliac joint in the hip region), raised ESR and c-reactive protein and MRI of sacro-iliac joints.
Avatar m tn If indeed you feel like you have a kidney-stone, yet they scan you reputedly and nothing shows up, they could be of the cystine variety, although if they are, you're joining an elite group as cystine kidney-stones are pretty rare. Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) also causes a substantial amount of pain, although a little different than what you've described above.
Avatar f tn he thought he was making funny jokes, I guess), I went to a urologist. The uro did a CT...turned out I had THREE stones in my kidney and a severe infection, which took over a month to kill. Turned out I also have MSK. Right now, I suffer in flare ups....I may suffer for months with chronic pain, but then be mostly pain free for a couple of months. I should also note that kidney stones can be scary....especially when they won't pass. When I had my CT, I had 3 stones....
