My girlfriend constantly gets kidney stones. The last time she had a lithotripsy, she developed sepsis and was in critical care for two weeks. She still suffers from pain and all her urologist wants to do is wait 6 months to order another CT scan without prescribing pain medication. I'm running out of patience. What should we do? All they ever care about are stones.
I recommend that she have studies to determine the cause of the kidney stones. She should see a nephrologist who is interested in kidney stones and have 24 hour urine testing to determine the cause of the kidney stones. 125 more words
Will draining the liquid from a cut up potato have the same or nearly the same effect as soaking in water in regards to the potassium?
I do not know. I do not know of any difference between these two techniques. I would have to consult with a dietitian. I suggest you consult with a dietitian. 8 more words
My mother has advanced kidney disease; her nephrologist tells her that she can eat anything she wants, drink alcohol, and does not advise her to change anything she is doing. He has not told her to avoid NSAIDS. Should she get another opinion? Her kidney function is 10%. How can we help her?
I cannot give medical advice without examining your mother and performing a complete history and physical examination. If her kidney function is only 10% or an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 10 milliliters per minute per 1.73 meters squared, the limitations on the diet are commonly suggested and I commonly suggest avoiding non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s) such as ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Naproxen, and Aleve. 19 more words
I have a lotof weight to loose and I am at stage 3 CKD. I was told I have to have a lot of potassium to help me with weight loss, but then I was told not to have a lot of potassium due to my kidneys. What do you recommend?
I am not sure who told you to eat lots of potassium to lose weight, but this is not good advice. I recommend that you meet with a dietitian who is familiar with kidney disease and seek dietary counseling. 20 more words
