Answered on 21st July '24

In cases like these, a person may need dialysis, to have their blood cleansified. This is possible when the kidneys are not functioning completely or are too weak. Some of the signs of the problem are a person being very tired, joints getting painful, and having the same problems with urination. It is a great point for them to visit a nephrologist to get the correct treatment.

According to the information, you underwent some medical tests and the feedback indicated a slightly higher creatinine level and a high urea nitrogen content. These are mechanisms that are directly related to kidney function. Symptoms can include feeling tired, swelling, and stenosis. Diarrhea, urine smell, and hair loss are some of the side effects of whey protein can cause too. The causes can be dehydration, certain medications, or kidney issues. You should ask a nephrologist for advice about what to do next.

Answered on 11th July '24

Hematuria, or blood in the urine, can be concerning. One likely reason is a kidney issue. Even without symptoms, it’s important to find the cause. The three main reasons are infection, a moving stone, or injury. Diagnosis is usually made through tests by a healthcare provider. Treatment varies and can include increased water intake and medications. Talking to a nephrologist is best to understand what’s happening in the body.

Why Is My Creatinine Rising in Stage 4 IGA Nephropathy?

Dr, I was diagnosed with IGA nephropathy 32 years ago. I am 64 years of age and my creatinine is 2.31 and has been hovering around that number. I have lost 124 lbs over the past year with the assistance of Zepbound. My kidneys have not improved and appear to be getting slightly worse. I run 3 miles a day and eat around 1200 calories a day never exceeding my sodium or potassium requirements. I do not have protein or blood in my urine. Please help. What is causing my creatinine to continue to rise? I am currently In Stage 4 kidney disease. Should I get an updated biopsy since my only biopsy was done in 1992. What can I do? Could the Zepbound be causing my kidneys to worsen? I drink 100 ounces of water daily.

It is concerning that your creatinine levels are rising despite your efforts. IGA nephropathy can progress slowly over time, and factors like age, diet, and medications may influence kidney function. Zepbound's impact on your kidneys should be evaluated by a specialist. I strongly advise you to consult a nephrologist for a thorough assessment and consider getting an updated biopsy to understand the current state of your kidney disease.

The question of whether your kidneys are swollen should be considered. Symptoms can vary, including a sensation of stomach bloating or difficulty urinating. It is reasonable to suspect a kidney infection might be the cause. Therefore, drink plenty of water and consult a nephrologist. The doctor may prescribe medications or other treatments.

Dr. Babita Goel

Answered on 4th July '24

Finding pus and epithelial cells in urine could indicate an infection. Symptoms of this condition may include a burning sensation when urinating, having a frequent need to urinate but passing only small amounts of urine, cloudy or strong-smelling urine. This bacterium could have been introduced into the urinary tract by drinking a lot of water or taking antibiotics as prescribed by your nephrologist.

Answered on 3rd July '24

The function of the kidneys worsens when you eat large amounts of protein, and the kidney problems become more severe. The extremely high rates of creatine supplements can make the kidneys unable to function properly. Before you start any regimen, consult with your doctor to figure out the best approach that is right for your body.

Hello sir/mam, i have pain over left side abdomen from last 3 days, severe in morning and subsides as the day passes, fever, no burning sensation. Xray KUB is normal, Usg shows small renal cortical cyst and tiny calcific foci, features suggestive of pyelonephritis. Dr. gave me IV ceftriaxone for 10 days. Pain is still there after 2 days of treatment.What should i do for the cortical cyst ?

Dr. Babita Goel

Dr. Babita Goel

General Physician

Answered on 3rd July '24

You have been experiencing pain in your left abdomen and have undergone treatment for pyelonephritis. An imaging scan showed that a small renal cyst slightly off the cortex in the kidney is the possible cause of some of your symptoms. Briefly, such cysts are usually benign and do not require treatment unless they grow or cause symptoms. In your situation, please continue to receive the necessary treatment for the infection, and they will also check the cyst to be sure it is not causing any inconvenience.

Did albendazole syrup harm my kidneys after two doses?

I took albendezol zentle syrup for two times over a period of 15 days without prescription. Does it shows any effect to my kidneys

1 Answer
Dr. Babita Goel

Dr. Babita Goel

General Physician

Answered on 3rd July '24

You need to have the doctor's consent before using albendazole zentle syrup to keep off the danger since its rogue consumption may not be good for your kidneys. Kidneys may show some of these symptoms of damage: swelling, lack of urine production, and fatigue. This is because the drug is inactive in the liver-forming the kidneys. The session is to come off the syrup and undergo a kidney health examination with the help of a nephrologist

Answered on 3rd July '24

You could have felt the kidney stones along with a burning/ painful situation during pee. For the larger part, kidneys produce such types of stones that are made up of water, calcium oxalate, and uric acid. Water is the best and first food to flush out these stones, so you should drink a lot of it. If the pain won't go away, visit a nephrologist and go through the advised treatments, if any.
