Answer: It may sound a lot, but I think the largest kidneystone ever found in a human was about 700 grams. Almost a kilo. Hmmm. I just read an article about a coconut sized one. Allmost 2,5 kilo. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1124329/Pictured-The-2-5lb-kidney-stone-size-coconut-surgeons-removed-mans-stomach.html
Answer: yes .Because through the gym the blood flow increase ,so the filteration rate will increase and the stone is easily remove from kidney. in which the blood vessel is become large so some what small which is smaller than vessel is easily comeout from the body........................................
Answer: Renal calculosis is one of many names for the condition or formation of kidney stones or renal calculi. Nephrolithiasis refers to the condition of having kidney stones or renal calculi. Urolithiasis refers to the condition of having calculi in the urinary tract (which also includes the kidneys), which may form or pass into the urinary bladder. Ureterolithiasis is the condition of having a calculus in the ureter, the tube connecting the kidneys and the bladder. The term bladder stones usually applies to urolithiasis of the bladder in non-human animals such as dogs and cats.
Answer: No, of coarse not. You might feel the pain very painful but u wont die just because of that!!-actually, if a very large kidney stone is left untreated, it could potentially be fatal. It is mostly the larger ones you have to worry about because they often do not cause as much pain as the more common, smaller stones. It is always important not to ignore the signs of a kidney stone or other kidney or bladder problem, such as cloudy or bloody urine, painful urination, and/or lower back pain.
A lot of stones are found on imaging that never cause any problems. Those can be left alone. Others pass, which is extremely painful, but otherwise not harmful to the long term health. Occasionally, either due to obstructing the urine flow or due to pain, they have to be removed.
Answer: It can be due to metabolic disorders, infection, sponge kidney or idiopathic that is no exact cause is known. It can be caused by taking excess of Vitamin D and calcium as seen in milk alkali syndrome. Hyperparathyroidism, gout, sarcoidosis, renal tubular acidosis, metastatic disease may all cause stones due to associated hypercalcaemia.
Answer: Gall bladder is responsible for synthesis of bile juices that contain bile salts. These bile salt emulsify the fats that we ingest in our food and make them feasible to be digested by lipases. thus if there is abnormality with gall bladder the patients are advised to take low fat content diet.
Answer: No. Dialysis is not necessary for kidney stone treatment. In most cases, the doctor may either perform lithotripsy, which is using sound waves to make the stone explode/dissolve, or go up the urethra with a small tube to grab the stones. If this is not an option, the doctor will treat the pain involved with the stones with prescription pain killers. Kidney stones are only a serious health risk if they are causing blockage, and in most cases pain is the only real problem involved with them.
Answer: I assume you made a typo, since I doubt your stone is 8 meters in diameter. I was told by my urologist that a stone greater than 5mm cannot pass into the ureter, however a couple of weeks ago, a CAT scan during an emergency room visit for pain revealed a 7 mm stone trapped in my ureter,where the ureter bends just before reaching the bladder. A doctor had prescribed flomax to help me pass the stone because I could not afford a third surgery without insurance. With my 7 mm stone, there is still enough room in my ureter for urine to leak around the stone, so I believe it is possible for you to pass your 8 mm stone.
Answer: Kidneys filter poison from your blood. If enough poison builds up in your blood, you die. People die from kidney failure. Some people would rather die from old age than kidney failure than old age. Others do not care so they let their weight and blood pressure get out of control. With high blood pressure from obesity their kidneys stop working and they die of kidney failure. Some people eat a lot of sugar. They get diabetes as a result. That also causes kidney failure. Some people get kidney failure from disease. A few of those people with kidney failure do not want to die from kidney failure but wants to die from old age. Kidney dialyses can remove poisons from the blood. It is expensive. It eventually stops working. The patient dies. The only way the patient can die from old age is a transplant.
Why do you think anyone would resort to a transplant?
Answer: Ahoy this is email@example.com and I am a chronic kidney stone former, to date I have had 18 kidney stone surgerys and more to go. It has been my experience with stones and urologist that the NO Stone thing is a typical answer to stone formers from the Doctors. There are so many places that a stone can hide in the kidney and they can be translutent, but you can bet if it is a hidden stone it will appear with time, you can count on it. There are also many other things that can cause a kidney to hurt, all you can do is cover all the bases and keep seeing your Urologist or , different Xrays can find hidden stones sometimes. I feel for you, just keep going and stay strong.
Answer: No. Kidney stone under 4mm are likely to pass without minor surgery. Anything above that would cause severe pain and would likely need a doctor or urologist to remove. There are many different procedures that can be done. I had a 7mm stone and had to have surgery for removal.I beg to differ here...upto 6mm stones are nto to be touched and they are supposed to come out on their own. Drink lots of fluid and avoid foods causing stones.
Answer: There are a variety of both medical and legal consequences, to the failure of a patient to show up for an appointment. In some cases, the patient is charged anyway, on the principle that the doctor reserved that time, which could have been given to someone else. The patient may have really needed that appointment and may become ill or even die as a result of lack of treatment, and the doctor may need to show that it was the patient who was negligent, not the doctor. And if a patient has a record of not keeping appointments, you might stop making appointments for that patient. You could even get a patient who complains about how hard it is to see the doctor, even though it is the patient who has failed to show up for an appointment and who needs to understand that it takes two to tango.
Answer: I do not know that much about the after-effects of a kidney transplant.
However, I DO know a lot about the HCG diet, according to my MD alternative medicine/cardiologist who has coached a plethora of folks through the protocol, and who is currently coaching more and more people through the HCG protocol everyday and is being very successful, both in the results for his patients losing weight and in his research (monitoring weight loss in men v. women, age studies, weight loss over time, etc). fascinating weight loss program, and I myself underwent the HCG diet program and found it to be incredibly amazing and rewarding.
regarding this question at hand concerning the kidney transplant, YES - of course, under direct doctor supervision, and perhaps under a modified version of the HCG protocol, so that the kidney transplant patient moves through the diet at a much slower pace so as not to put added pressure on the heart and other organs, etc etc. I myself found that a slower-paced, modified version of the HCG diet worked wonders for me, and I also found that in the long run I kept the weight off more successfully as opposed to the more "harsh" diet programs of my past, where I went through "crash course" intense and fast-paced diets. I tended to lose weight quickly, but then put it right back on with these crash course diet programs in the end.
final answer here: YES, with V E R Y close doctor-supervised monitoring (especially if the patient is grossly obese and losing the weight would assist the patient in the long run, overall!!)
