Aunt kidney problem creatinine 17. Kidney size normal dr. Says chances of revival ofkidney function. Biopsy sent. Passes urine.Can kidney revive age60?
Creatinine of 17?: Are you sure that your aunt's creatinine (c) is 17, not 1.7? If her c is 17, she should be on dialysis. A biopsy would not be done in someone that high a c. If the c is 1.7, it seems that she had a glomerulonephritis, the cause of which needs to be determined for a diagnosis and prognosis. The best way to get more information about your aunt is to call the doctor who ordered the renal biopsy. ...Read more

TVUSG report says: "Bulky uterus with small subserous fibroids. Thickened endometrium. Small cysts in ovaries." Period late by 15days. Please advice?
Depends: I think the small subserous fibroids are a non-issue. More like an incidental finding. The rest (thickened endometrium, small cysts in ovaries, late period) can all be explained with something like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). If you are trying to conceive then you will likely need to see a physician for help with ovulation induction (using medications). Losing weight can also help. ...Read more

43 y/o s/p hyst x 10 yrs. ovaries intact. Severe nighttime sweating. Estrogen level per lab was 904. ???
FSH & TSH levels?: Estrogen levels can be very misleading as estrogen is made in the ovaries, peripheral fat and adrenal glands and unless broken down into its' components of origin can miss the menopause picture. An FSH level can at least give your MD an idea that the ovaries may no longer be responding to produce estrogen in amounts that keep the "hot flashes" at bay. Also make sure your TSH(thyroid) is normal. ...Read more
ESWL: Depends-if your stone is radiolucent (eg uric acid/cysteine) you could manage it medically and dissolve it. If radio-opaque/calcium in composition, while unlikely to "pass" intact, would be best managed with eswl as a minimally-invasive mono-therapy. (pcnl would be too invasive, except with significant anatomic variation (eg calyceal diverticulum/infundibular stenosis). Possible ureterorenoscopy? ...Read more
I have a 0.7 CM non-obstructing kidney stone at the right side of my kidney. Can it be carried through water therapy? Its been almost a month.
Probably not..., but: The described 0.7-cm size is large than what professionally advised to wait and see. Generally speaking, some 85 % of stones of <0.4 cm would pass through ureter in 2 wks; but it doesn't mean the <0.4-cm ones would always pass and the >0.4-cm ones would never pass. Yet, if stone-related pain is tolerable and the dilation of ureter.Kidney is not severe, few >0.4 cm stones may pass in 1-4 months. ...Read more
See a urologist: Stone is too big to pass sponaneousy & too large for shockwave lithotripsy (eswl). Urologic stone expert will likely advise percutaneos nephro-lithopaxyy (pcnl). This involves temporary placement of a percutaneous neprostomy tube, through which a nephroscope is passed & stone is proken up by laser or tithoclst. Performed under general anesthesia or sedation. Open surgery should be avoided. ...Read more
Probable PNL: 2x1 CM stone is quite large and best managed by percuteous nephro-lithotripsy. This will involve having a tube placed in the kidney by urologist or interventional radiologist. Then nephroscope is passed thru tube and kidney is broken up by laser or lithoclst. Your stone is certainly to big for ureteroscopic lithotripsy and larger than recommendations for shockwave lithotripsy (most non-invasive). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have a 1.1 cm kidney stone that showed up on ultrasound. So why am I being sent now for a ct scan?
Better information : Ultrasound is good at determining if here is urine backing up in your kidney from an obstruction that can come from a stone. It can also see cysts or masses in the kidney. It is not great at determining exact size and location of these that can be anywhere from in the kidney or anywhere along the path of urine. CT will do just that, exact size and position which helps determine passability. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Can I tell if kidney stone has transited from ureter to bladder by change in symptoms?CT scan shows a 4mm stone 1.5 CM from bladder.
See answer: The only true accurate means of determining whether a ureteral calculus has passed is to retrieve it by straining your urine. The chance of spontaneous passage of a 4mm stone ~50-60%. Onset of symptoms of urinary urgency, frequency, burning, voiding small volumes usually indicates the stone is at the UVJ (ureter meets bladder).

Could this be a Kidney stone RBC-17/HPF, RBC-5/HPF, Leuk Est-Moderate. Also a 1.2 cm cyst was found in my kidney on a ct scan,?
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it could be from kidney stone but also could be due to other reasons and you should discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he knows more about your health.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
