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 n tn Up to 20% of adults with kidney stones may have medullary sponge kidney; the corresponding figure in children is unknown. Among patients with kidney stones, hypercalciuria may occur in 40-50%, and recurrent gross hematuria may occur in 10-20%. Although no evidence indicates that risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher in patients with medullary sponge kidney, up to 5% of males and 35% of females have a UTI.
Avatar n tn I have read various articles on the internet since then and all of them talk about high blood pressure in young adults occurring due to bad diet, lack of exercise etc which does not fit. Also articles saying that blood pressure medicine not likely to be efffective on young adults. How serious is this situation and what should he do?
Avatar f tn A high count of red blood cells in the urine can indicate infection, trauma, tumors, or kidney stones. If red blood cells seen under microscopy look distorted, they suggest kidney as the possible source and may arise due to kidney inflammation (glomerulonephritis). Small amounts of red blood cells in the urine are sometimes seen young healthy people and usually are not indicative of any disease. What can the presence of white blood cells in the urine mean?
Avatar n tn He is 25 and last year began to have painful episodes with passing kidney stones. One stone had to be treated with shockwave lithroscopy. Scans indicate multiple, bilateral stones. Since that time, he has had gastric pain, nausea, flank pain, sleeplessness, etc. I had a parathyroid adenoma a couple of years ago myself, so I was familiar with the problems of high calcium and requested some tests. They have come back and shown a calcium level of 10.; 10.2 and 10.6. However, his PTH was 10.
1430129 tn?1283285075 When this began nearly two months ago, I thought it was a kidney stone because I have medullary sponge kidneys and have had lots of kidney stones. I saw my urologist, and he did an xray, and saw a stone on my left side but not the right. He said that he can't tell me for sure that it's not a kidney stone. But With the pain that I'm experiencing in my stomach, I feel like it's not a kidney stone at all.

Avatar n tn There are reported associations with the development of primary hypertension in young adults. Either way, it is important to look into treating hypertension no matter what the age. Depending on the level of blood pressure, the treatment can entail lifestyle modification, pharmacotherapy or a combination of the two. It might help to seek another opinion if you are not comfortable with the current therapeutic plan.

Avatar n tn From what I read on the subject, it IS fairly common among young adults, and teens fall into that category. However, without having a microalbumin count done in a lab, you won't know if this is the beginning of kidney disease or whether it is the type of protein that isn't a danger to long-term kidney health. I really think you need to have lab tests run. I assume that you go to your endocrinologist at least once a year for complete lab tests to check kidney function and other things?
1600904 tn?1340987945 Henoch-Schbnlein Purpura (HSP) is a common, usually self-limited, vasculitis affecting children and young adults. But it can occur in adults. Do consult your Doc.
700223 tn?1318169294 There may also be possible interactions with drugs you are currently taking. This should be carefully discussed with your doctor and your pharmacist. 9. Start young. Since most adults don not reach their peak bone density until age thirty, early habits are the most important. The higher the bone density before it reaches its peak, the better.
Avatar f tn I got checked for kidney stones and have none, which I only did to rule out that possibility; I already knew I didn't have any. Am I overreacting? What else could be causing daily, increasing, annoying, uncomfortable pain on my left ovary and a nasty, weird smell, and an abnormal amount of discharge than I used to have? I am only 23, but everday the pain on my left ovary especially increases and I don't know what to do anymore.
167 tn?1374177417 Unless we live in a sunny climate all year round, and we get outside every day, we need a supplement throughout the fall and winter and even into the spring. Apparently 100% of us northerners are vitamin D deficient by January 1st...if we don;t supplement. And did you know that a deficiency of vitamin D can lead to cancer and to multiple sclerosis? Up in the colder north here we have much more cancer and MS.
Avatar n tn There are lots of new treatments - and with your age (teenagers and very young adults tend to be hit harder if diagnosed then) and the apparent slow progression, you have every reason to hope that if it IS MS, treatment will be helpful.
Avatar m tn Pullen, PhD Feb 05, 2013 Men who take ascorbic acid supplements daily (approximately 1000 mg) were at increased risk for first incident cases of kidney stones (rate difference, 147/100,000 compared with men who do not take ascorbic acid supplements). This represents a dose-dependent, 2-fold increased risk for kidney stone formation. Laura D.K.
Avatar n tn This typically afflicts children and young adults, but you mentioned you'd been sick for 12 years...meaning you were 22 when this onset. Chronic Epstein-Barr Virus (CEBV) typically yields moderately high EBV antibody titers. In your case, EBV Ab VCA, IgG being 6828 isn't "moderately high", that's a level on the order of those seen in patients with SCAEBV (typically anything > 5120).
Avatar f tn Ok, so I tend to pride myself on being one of those wives who doesn't bit*h much, is very loyal, and I do whatever I can to make my husbands life easier. We've always had an unspoken trust that what we say to each other will stay between us. Well, my husbands ex wife dropped his daughter off today and Jay wasn't home from work yet. We started chatting ( we get along now, and can be around each other without an issue, but I wouldn't call us "friends").
Avatar f tn No, but while doing the CAT scan they found water on her kidney (a sign of stones) however no stones. We saw a pediatric urology specialist. She said her kidneys are a variation of " normal" and since he had never had a UTI or kidney infection she certain it was her ovaries. I was inclined to believe her as my daughter gets doubled over in pain the first two days of her menstral cycle. She said at the first sign of her period take two aleeve and two ibuprofen.
Avatar n tn old boy (my baby) was just diagnosed with Crohns Disease a month ago and I am experiencing pain worse than childbirth and kidney stones combined. I am an RN and a little knowledge can kill someone. MY son is actually fairly well and has been with his grandmother the past several weeks. I noticed that he was barely growing and one abnormal test result let to another, led to another and Crohn's is the dx. I kept crying everytime I looked at him, so it's actually good he's away now.
Avatar n tn My worst problem was kidney stones so far and all testing at the doc's office says very good condition. If I can do all this so can you with today's technology, At this point check your sugars 4-6 times a day, keep them in the 100-120 on average, get outside and get some exercise, try to eat low fat and enjoy life!
Avatar f tn Hello I'm a 31 year old women born with gastroschisis I have short bowel syndrome and malabsorption problems and they are finding more and more wrong with me every day I lost a kidney due to the inability to break down kidney stones and have 2auto immune diseases I'm aware of.
Avatar m tn It says "Teens and young adults in their 20's who are building bone can have calcium levels up to 10.7 on more than one occasion." So it looks like I have secondary parathyroid ? http://www.parathyroid.com/hyperparathyroidism-diagnosis.
242516 tn?1368227505 Are you sick with a runny nose, sore throat, cough, possibly even goey green and brown stuff coming out? Well, you're not alone, you've got a cold like millions of other adults right now around the world. Colds are upper respiratory infections that are almost always caused by viruses in adults.

Avatar n tn First they thought it was a kidney stone becasue I also noticed pain in my groin and there was some blodd in my urine (but later they told me 0-3 whaich is completely normal). They took rxrays and then I was sent for an IVP. Apparently both showed no kidney stones. Next they sent me for a pelvic ultrasound (although the pain is not in my pelvis; it is higher up near my ribcage and navel and around into my back where it feels like a muscle spasm and sometimes up into my shoulder blade.
Avatar n tn Mine was diagnosed as fibromyalgia, with s-1 thru l5 degenerative disc disease and also had 2 kidney stones. I am going to have lithotripsy done on the 15th. I also have titanium in my back now. still having the same pains though!! Mine r not stopping thru the day sometimes til early morning then stopping. Tests after test show nothing else! We need a qualified Dr. not someone to come in for 5 mins and give out candy meds to cover this!!
Avatar n tn I have been to a GYN, Urologists, primary care physicians, you name it I have seen them. I have had kidney stones removed, laproscopic surgery (nothing abnormal) and a cystopy (spelling). I was actually hoping that the Lap would indicate that they had found something wrong so they could fix it. My GYN seems to think our next step is to remove the uterus, I just don't see how this can help.
