Avatar f tn Harvard researchers found that taking magnesium along with vitamin B6 can reduce calcium oxalate stone formation. Vegetarian tend to form fewer calcium oxalate kidney stones than meat eaters. I'm not saying to become a vegetarian. increase fiber sources in your diet, like root vegetables, and cut back on how much meat you eat. Sugar and salt can also increase both calcium and oxalate in the urine. The less common type are uric acid kidney stones.

Avatar m tn Is there anyone else out there who passes kidney stones about once or twice a week?
Avatar n tn Vegetarians actually tend to form significantly fewer calcium oxalate kidney stones than meat eaters. Vegetarian diets include more bulk and fiber, which lowers calcium output. And, vegetable protein contains fewer sulfur-rich amino acids than animal protein, and those amino acids promote calcium excretions. It will help you to increase fiber sources in your diet, like root vegetables, and to cut back on how much meat you eat.

Avatar n tn 4 months ago I started having a burning sensation in my urethra after I would urinate and also having discharges. I sought treatment and was given a shot + pills for chlamydia and gonorhea. I gave a urinanalysis sample too. 2 weeks later, the discharge had stopped,but I still had the occasional cloudy urine plus the burning urethra. I went back to the clinic and was treated for the same symptoms with the same pills + shot again.
Avatar f tn 2 Sometimes high uric acid levels DO cause kidney stones, but yours is below normal level. absolute monocyte levels should range between 40-900. Monocytes are made by the bone marrow and stored in the spleen. Monocytes help to fight infection. I suppose the low monocytes levels explains your recurrent UTI's Have your doctor check your bone marrow and spleen make sure they're okay. Are you anemic?

Avatar f tn Weak, lightheaded, shortness of breath and constipated again. An EKG was normal, chest x-ray normal, an ultrasound did not reveal any kidney stones or gall stones, but liver enzymes were elevated. Two subsequent blood tests showed liver enzymes continued to elevate.

Two days after the fast ended, I ate some chicken and rice.

Avatar m tn Hello, Lower central abdominal pain could be due to UTI, cystitis (bladder infection), trapped wind or intestinal gas, constipation, anxiety or kidney stones. Investigations like blood tests (CBC, ESR), urine test, x ray, ultrasound or CT/MRI scan can be required to rule out the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn The only vaginal related problems I’ve had were ovarian cysts (2015 - present) and a torsion (2015). Other than that, I have anemia and get kidney stones (2017 - present). I was on the pill for a while, and I used the nuva ring for a few months, but whether I’m on or off birth control the smell has stayed. At first I thought the smell might have been normal, but I for sure know it’s not.
Avatar m tn Hi Bob, Thanks for your response. They did and found kidneys normal. One thing i want to tell that the nerve around the left testicle is a bit thick and when i press it gently the pain goes in the directions (left lower/middle back, groin, left leg and so on). One more thing i have noticed that, the problem is sbdued in nature in summers and quite irritatating in winter but not unbearable.
Avatar m tn I'm losing weight too, but I don't notice the pain increasing with any particular food. It is just there, but I do know it is not kidney stones or diverticulis. What can it be?
Avatar f tn Before 3 lithotripsies in 2013 for large kidney stones that resulted in two blockages of my left kidney, my eGFR was 80. Last year my eGFR was 57 and this year it is 61. I also have a renal oncocytoma on my left kidney that is monitored by my urologist by CT scans every so many months with and without contrast. I have type 2 diabetes with an A1C of 6.7.
Avatar n tn their fees are set by the government and they don't get paid until you win. Does he see a urologist for his kidney stones? Is he taking any mediation to cause them or has he had them before? If you don't want to involve another MD, perhaps his PCP can also address this. Please keep us informed. You have a lot on your plate and I wish you luck.
Avatar m tn Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower left abdomen pain. It could also be a periumbilical hernia that has got trapped resulting in small bowel obstruction or mesenteric ischemia. An ultrasound or CT scan of abdomen is definitely required. Aortic aneurysm too can present this way. In women other causes can be ovary involvement, ectopic pregnancy, or endometriosis.

Tests (sonogram, cystoscope?) show no signs of kidney stones, kidney damage, or bladder damage. GI doc found polyps in the cecum, evidence of GERD - diagnosed GERD, internal hemorrhoids, and IBS.
Avatar f tn OK YOU SAY NO STONES, DO YOU MEAN NO CALCIFICATIONS IN THE KIDNEYS OR NO STONES IN THE URETERS? DR. WOLF'S PROCEDURE IS MAINLY FOR THOSE OF US WITH CALCIFICATIONS BELIEVED TO BE CONNECTED TO THE STONE BURDEN WITHIN THE COLLECTING DUCTS OF THE KIDNEYS. THESE CALCIFICATION PATTERNS ARE TYPICAL OF MSK...ESP. MID LIFE. IT IS POSSIBLE TO GET A CHRONIC INFECTION WITHIN THE KIDNEYS WITHOUT THE CALCIFICATIONS, HOWEVER IT SHOULD RESPOND BETTER TO ANTIBIOTICS THEN THOSE OF US WITH A LOT OF STONES.

Avatar n tn I have recently been in the hopital, and I am still uncertain if I was having gall stones or kidney stones, but I had the pain of kidney stones. The cat scan revealed no evidence of kidney stones, but my urine test revealed that I had blood in my urine, and had a urinary track infection. I was put on Coprofloxacin for that.
2053959 tn?1330448602 My son had his surgery on Mar 12th. The doc removed 4 stones from the right kidney and 1 large stone from the left. Recovery was very painful for him. Had to go back to the ER for morphine to help the pain. Got a fever a few days after that. In the end, the surgery didn't help much for his overall pain. His right side still hurts all the time. He's hardly at school and I have to get his work from the office. He's seen a nephrologist who give him Rx to help new stones from forming. But that's it.
