Renal Stone And Homoeopathic Treatment

Renal stone disease is an ancient and common affliction over a 70 years life span , it is estimated that about 15% of people will develop renal stones , although very few individuals die as a direct result of stone disease . It does lead to  significant suffering from pain , urinary infections and destructive disease to the kidneys though newer and more effective methods of stone treatment are available , the actual cause of stone formation frequently remains unknown , so recurrence is bound to occur , urinary stones occur in all parts of the urinary system . 97% of all urinary stones are located in the kidney and ureter , only 3% are found in the bladder and urethra

COMPOSITOR :

Urinary stones are actually biominerals , they contain both inorganic and organic sub stones . There are different types of stones , Calcium oxalate is by far the most common stone constituent , as seen in at least 80 % of all stones . The formation of urinary stones has a multi factorial origin . Socio economic genetic constitutional factors , as well as diet , drugs , anatomic , functional and metabolic abnormalities , all play a part when a constituent exceeds the saturation in the urines . It crystallizes , these crystals grow and join together to form a deficiency of some substances which inhabit the growth and segregation of crystals in urine , will also permit stone formation .

COMMON SYMPTOMS OF STONE FORMATION :-

1mild/moderate or severe pain

2.passage of blood in the urine

3.passage of tissue in the urine

4.urinary infection

5.burning sensation ,when urinating

6.no symptoms at all 

To evacuate the presence of stones , preliminary urine analysis followed by ultrasonography will give most of the information , to study the actual kidney function an IVU series [ x-ray ] needs to be performed . In case of further doubts additional tests like isotope renogram , cystoscopy and retrograde studies of the urinary tract and spinal CT may also be done .

Initial treatment will focus on relief from pain . After this , the next step will be to facilitate  either passage or removal of the stone , itself , 80-90 % of all stones less than 5 mm will pass out on their own .I

If the stone is smooth , even stones of 7-8 mm may pass out on their own . stones larger than this will invariably need to be removed by one of the many methods available . If there is an anatomical abnormalities , the priority will be to correct that abnormality while removing the stone

One or two solitary stones in the kidney can be treated preferably by ESWL . This is a method by which pressure waves from a machine are focused on the stone and the stone is powdered . The stone fragments will pass out in the urine and the stone is powdered . The stone fragments will pass out in the urine stream over a period of 1 to 12 weeks .

Larger stones in the kidney are preferably removed by PCL . In this method , when the patient needs to be admitted , a small puncture is made in the kidney , the stone is identified , fragmented and removed completely

Stones lower  down in the urinary tract may be treated either by ESWL or again by endoscopic methods . In this a small endoscope is passed into the urinary tract from out side i.e., the stone is visualized and fragmented

Open surgery for stones in the ureter are used only in complicated cases . Uric acid ones which are generally seen only on the ultra sound , and not on the x-rays , and if less than 1cm can be  easily dissolved

Most patients with urinary stones need to make the following changes in their diet these include :

1.high intake of natural fluids like water , dilute butter milk , citrus juices etc , coffee tea or milk should be limited to 1 to 2 cups a day

2.food must preferably be vegetarian , and high in fiber

3.most eaters should limit the amount of sugar and calcium rich food like sweets etc., should be avoided especially on an empty stomach

patients suspected of having other metabolic or endocrinal problems will need to under go detailed testing . These are generally reserved for patients having recurrent stone formations .

SURGERY CAN BE AVOIDED AND CURED BY TAKING HOMOEOPATHIC MEDICINES :    

    FATTY LIVER , LEFT HYDRONEPHROSIS IS SECONDARY TO DISTAL URETERIC CALCULUS , MILD PROSTE TO MEGALY CURED BY   HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT
