Kidney stones treatment new zealand

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones treatment new zealand


Avatar n tn 2 weeks ago I had surgery where my urologist cut into the top of my kidney and started to remove stones from the kidney itself. He didn't get very far and is unsure where to go from here at the moment he is considering open surgery where he would remove all the stones at once rather than doing it piecemeal as planned. I currently have a second nephrostomy tube. Do you have any suggestions on what treatment would be best. I have always drunk heaps of water and avoided salt my whole life.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn Ibnul Qaiyum (may Allah have mercy upon him) said, “The black seed helps against all types of cold ailments… when ground, blended with honey and drunk with some water, it will dissolve the stones that appear in the kidney and the prostate…it increases the flow during menstruation and the production of milk if it is drunk for several days… When it is heated with vinegar and placed on the stomach it will eliminate worms.
Avatar f tn I am past desperate. I live in Westport NEW ZEALAND & was diagnosed with MSK 18yrs ago & have had kidney stones for 30yrs. my hosp & drs here took my pain relief & all treatment away 3yrs ago & I've lost 20kgs & been mainly bed-ridden ever since. I've lost my whole family as they all believe I'm lying about my pain & just feeling sorry for myself. I've been refused treatment including I've fluid in hosp here.
Avatar f tn Hi...I am on Topamax, on a very low dosage and the first 2 weeks were awful, but after that 2 weeks to adjust to the meds I felt better. I am not on it for seizures, but as a provalactic for headaches.... SO it is going to be a personal thing as to what ur dosage is, and if u have reactions to the med...u do need to drink plenty of water to help avoid kidney stones.....but, with the same note ur dr should be doing regular labs to keep tabs on all that.
Avatar m tn Alan Barber, MD, PhD, a professor of clinical neurology at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, told MedPage Today in an interview. The study will be formally presented at the conference on Wednesday. The ISC released the information after an Australian publication reported the finding based on an embargoed press release.
Avatar m tn I have the house cleaned, I am packed, and have the pet sitters straight. Yesterday my cat had a blocked bladder from kidney stones. They can die if the bladder ruptures. I got him to the vet. He has to stay through the week end and we leave tomorrow. I saw him today. He has a catheter going to a bag of bloody urine. He has an IV and a plastic hat. He was happy to see me as I was him. I am relaxed because I know the vet and pet sitter will take care of him.
Avatar n tn ok, I took M'done for 6mos to get off a long and heavy opiate use and it work ok but had to get off because of side effects but over all i not graving lortab's for the 1st time for over 13yrs. I do feel for most ppl taking Suboxone or M'done should be taken for a short time, enough to get the opiates out of your system.
181575 tn?1250202386 I am reposting articles / summaries on the treatment management of chronic HepB. "cajim" located these articles which are quite informative. I thought about putting them on a seaprate Health Page but didn't think it was appropriate since we didn't write them. Let's make this a sort of "Unofficial Research Thread" or "URT" for this type of information. Let's keep this URT free of comments.
29837 tn?1414538248 (in saying that, tx will only be given to 3A's in New Zealand if they show progressive damage) I think he has taken into account my general health plus my bloodwork; noticeably the reduction in platelets and increase in ALT/AST's in the last couple of years. This was also why I've been anxiously watching my blood work for the first few weeks of tx. I said to my GP (PCP) "Is liver diagnosis a bit of a grey area?" - He grinned, and said, "well, yes, it can be".
670955 tn?1226601500 Keep in mind that grains such as corn, wheat and even rice provide low-cost calories, their high carbohydrate content contributes to obesity, diabetes, kidney stones/struvite crystals, behavior problems, allergies, skin/coat problems and a host of other health problems in cats and dogs. There is a myth that high protein foods are bad for pets and cause kidney problems. First it is important that you give your pet a high quality protein.
Avatar m tn Methylocobalamin B12 also requires glutathione, the master antioxidant, to be at reasonably high levels. I personally take daily Undenatured New Zealand whey protein powder, in order to boost my glutathione production, probably my # 1 supplement for optimum overall health! Along with methylfolate, methylocobalamin supports methylation which in turn facilitates billions of biochemical processes in the body every single day! Just do a search FYI !

Avatar n tn It's an urban myth...gallstones, unlike kidney stones can not be dissolved - and even if they could, you would NOT want the remnants of them "passing through" as this "flush" suggests would happen....the fragments or small stones would become trapped, possibly in the bile duct. This old wives' tale is at best useless and at worst dangerous...please don't even try it....
Avatar n tn It has to be compounded by a pharmacy or purchased from New Zealand. The doctors want me to wean my 11 month old. Regardless of nursing or not I don't want to take a medication with a lot of side effects that will make me feel worse than I already do. Does anyone have similiar problems? Can anyone please give me suggestions that relate to my situation?
Avatar n tn Hi like u all I have similar problem for 2 years now and lately that I treat myself with Candida, I am feeling better and it feels like I am going to be.
Avatar n tn I feel very guilty, my life revolves around the pills and now so does my family's. I have lied to my doc and been well supplied for the past few months. I have chronic Kidney stones, I am 33 and I have 2 children. I can get more pills in a few days and I just don't want to be on this anymore. My pain is minimal right now and I have been looking into meditation and other methods to deal with the pain when it comes back.

Avatar n tn Now, I am a male and no makeup, but for the past 3 years, out of nowhere, never had a allergy in my life, a week after I joined my new workplace, I started to get the same symptoms as you. My eyes and lips start to swallow, and then if it is really strong, my second eye starts, and my lips also get dots on them , like millions of them. Maybe we have the same thing, just reacts differently a little.
Avatar n tn , become lactose intolerant in the last year or two? have history of multiple kidney stones or gout ?and presently feel fatique most of the time.Are you constantly dehydrated? Does Alcohol intensify the problem? cold days? hot showers? Anyone take cholesteral medicine in the last 2 years or when it began. Anyone smoke cigarattes or marjuana?
Avatar n tn It has also been reported that too little lysine in a diet can result in kidney stones. Like all amino acids, lysine functions as a building platform for proteins. Lysine is key in the production of disease fighting antibodies, numerous enzymes, and hormones. Lysine insures the adequate absorption of calcium; helps form collagen that makes up bone cartilage and connective tissues. Lysine is believed to prevent and relieve cold sores (herpes).
Avatar n tn Those using Topomax need to be especially mindful about drinking plenty of fluids due to increased chances of kidney stones. Stoney will likely develop if fluid intake is not maintained. Looking forward to weight loss benefit as I gained 30# over the past 4 years on anti-depressents. Has anyone used this for bipolar?
Avatar n tn I was put on extreme amounts of diltiazem. I lived 7200 ft above sea-level. We took a trip to New Zealand and I was at sea level for a month. My heart started doing a lot better. We decided to move from Wyoming to West Virginia. I am now under 1000 ft above sea level. I have reduced the amount of pills I take by 3 times. So I have gotten better but I have now noticed that after I eat dinner, I got into an attack. My heart rate rises and I tach, my blood pressure also rises a lot.
298579 tn?1192250448 I was diagnosed with endometriosis back in the late 90's during infertility treatment (at that time I did not have fibroids). My diagnosis of fibroids is relatively recent. So in a google search of fibroids & cramping I came across a link to a book titled 'What Your Mother Never Told You About Sex' by Hilda Hutcherson. In the google preview (I copied the link below) it specifically mentions fibroids & sex (page 308) ..... here is a quote "....
Avatar n tn For years I would pass out for no reason and have bursts of energy then all of a sudden get real tired and would even have trouble w/ my memory and have trouble maintaing weight just all kinds of things and these spells would last for a couple of weeks before I would recover.At the age of 17 I started producing kidney stones and for years I kept switching doctors who just kept dismissing everything.
961574 tn?1520651703 sisi2399: this is great news!!! i am so happy for you:-))).
