Avatar m tn Only a complete medical evaluation can confirm whether this erectile dysfunction is due to kidney stones or not. Drink plenty of water and take adequate treatment for your kidney stones.

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.
1126418 tn?1326169592 I take 400 IU of D3 daily now. He rechecks my blood, occasionally. He did warn me overdose of it can cause kidney stones. I also take SAMe, for depression. 10 years ago I was on prescribed antidepressants and was able to get off them with SAM-e. I was taking NerveFix for numbness but I'm on a very fixed income and it's been a couple months since I ran out.
Avatar f tn I am a 27 year old pregnant female with a history of kidney stones since the age of 16. I normally get a kidney stone every 3 - 4 months but now that I am pregnant it has gotten to the point where I am getting them every week. This past weekend I rushed to the ER because I thought I was in labor. Instead of being in labor I found out that I had passed yet another stone this time it was an 8mm stone with no pain medication except 2 tylenol that my husband gave me before we went to the hospital.
Avatar m tn Important difference since C is highly acidic and were excess not removes it would cause great damage, including kidney stones. B is a complex of importance to the extent that B is manufactured in a healthy (I stress healthy gut) we need the B complex to make our food absorb-able but we have a colony of friendly bacterium living in our intestines that actually produce some for us, this in turn makes our complex amino acid proteins into absorbabe compounds.
Avatar f tn Incredibly, mutant, toxic nuclear painful and just plain HURT, A LOT, multiple kidney stones. Kidney stones can pass and poof - all gone. Then another - or a few others - can make their ugly journey into your ureter days or weeks later. This experience is not fun. I speak from experience. One little 5 mm just about made me grind the enamel off my teeth - but the lovely wretched staghorn model at a whopping 9+mm? And hooked and now on display in a window box?
Avatar n tn For low back pain and abdominal pain, conditions like kidney infections, urinary tract stones, appendicitis, spine disorders have to be ruled out. Seek consult with your primary physician for a complete assessment and diagnostic tests.A warm compress over the area and OTC analgesics may be able to help temporarily. Do keep us posted.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Avatar n tn I read that too much beet can harm the kidney if one has kidney stones. However beets are good for detoxifying, therefore good for the liver.Etv as we know or any anti viral treatment is released thru kidneys, so kidneys have to be taken cared of and celery and cucumbers are good for the kidneys. Juicing an apple, a carrot, celery and cucumber can only do good to the kidneys instead of harm. Carrots too are very good antioxidants. I havent tried heptech supplements.
Avatar n tn 59 My patient is a male 32 years old has been suffering from formation of recurring kidney stones. The stones are posative for calcium, oxalates, and phosphates. He has also got parathyroid Harmone PTH done which is normal. Even sonography of the parathyroid shows nomal. He has also got 24 hours urine test done which is normal. He has also done a blood test for S.calcium, Phosphorous, Phosphates, Alkaline , albumin and S.creatinine all are in normal range.
468408 tn?1208436609 Can you overdose on vitamins and minerals and if so, what would be the signs of this? In particular, calcium, magnesium, melatonin and L-theanine?
Avatar n tn Hi, You can ask for an Xray, which would be quicker to schedule and to report, to check for the presence of kidney stones which my cause an obstruction of urine flow, even if only partial, and can predispose to UTIs. WBCs in the urine can be a sign of renal damage and inflammation, especially if accompanied by epithelial cells.
Avatar f tn I have not had a pain free day in the last two years and worse, kidney stones! I am already prone to them, but I can't get over the suspicion that Viread has ensured I have a stone that needs to be taken out each year. I've read that viread is one of the best treatment there is (hardly any side effects, probability of virus resistance low) so my latest blood test is worrying me no end. I am not due for another DNA test until 6 months later.
Avatar m tn 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). Also something no one mentioned to me was that my kidney walls were thickened. The right kidney measures 11.8 x 5.2 x 6.
Avatar m tn org/wiki/Hypoparathyroidism 'calcium replacement or vitamin D can ameliorate the symptoms but can increase the risk of kidney stones and chronic kidney disease' Is that really desired goal of treatment? Is there any evidence bringing the pth to the minimum can actually "cure" people or reduce their hbvdna/hbsag without damaging their kidneys? Are there any evidence/studies/previous posts of users that imply this actually works?

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 f tn I have read that potassium citrate reduces calcium kidney stones even where urinary citrate levels are normal and urinary calcium levels are high (that's me). I would really rather start there and see how I do. What is wrong with giving me a year on this and see how I do? I have reduced my sodium intake to less than 1500mg per day which should also decrease stone formation as well as drinking a TON of water. My urologist is very conservative. He manages the passage of my stones.
Avatar f tn I have taken fentanyl several times for kidney stones and always in the hospital. What I know about it is, it is 100 x's more powerful than morphine. how much were you taking and for how long? What I know from my own experience with pain meds, and this is long time heavy usage, is that everyone's symptoms subside at different times, its very hard to judge when you will feel better. Me personally, with hospital detox and 2 weeks of treatment, I still had problems after the 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn For the past several years I have had recurring bladder and kidney problems, including consistent UTI's. This past summer I had extreme abdominal pain and was treated for kidney stones and/or ovarian cysts, but now for the past several months I have been experiencing extreme foul-smelling urine. Each time, my doctor(s) have given me a urinalysis which sometimes comes back positive for bacteria and sometimes negative. What always seems to come back, however, is an excessive amount of protein.
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 f tn I have had several activations and symptoms come right back full force. I have also had kidney stones and cysts on my kidneys and i swear its from EBV too. Fortunately the activations when caught early can be fairly well dealt with for me.
Avatar f tn The D will help you hold onto calcium, and keep your teeth and bones strong. The only reason this can backfire is if you have a kidney insufficiency, kidney stones, or an overactive parathyroid. In those cases taking D can actually cause kidney stones, strokes and more. So the main thing is to make sure you need the vitamin by having a blood test done to check both the D level, and your calcium level.
