In my usg the impression says: echogenic focus in the mid cortal area of left kidney. The kidney measures108.4*53.0mm. What does this mean?
Nonspecific: The kidney measurement is relatively normal and is essentially just given for reference. The echogenic focus is somewhat nonspecific and could be many things (angiomyolipoma is one that quickly comes to mind). Without seeing the images or knowing if you've had other imaging, it's hard to give much more information. ...Read more

Kidney stone: This is most likely a 3 mm kidney stone. ...Read more
How is it determined if a3 mm echogenic focus without posterior shadowing in mid-portion is a kidney stone?
May not be stone: You likely have had a renal ultrasound. A kidney stone usually does create shadowing because it does not allow transmission of sound waves. A "twinkle" artifact is also associated with a stone. Other structures can be echogenic, including calcium deposits in blood vessels, fat in the renal sinus, and fat containing benign masses. CT scan without contrast is most sensitive to detect stones. ...Read more
What affects would I have drinking 4-10 cups of coffee a day with solitary kidney? My mom shames me if I sleep because she says to focus on school.
Shameful to sleep?: I am not sure if I understand this situation. You definitely need to sleep at least 8 hours a night, or you won't be able to learn anything whatsoever. So that is a starting point. You are 16 years old. The optimal amount of coffee for you is none. You can pull the all-nighters when you go to college. A cup in the morning is ok. Time management is key. ...Read more

What is a 10x6x9mm echogenic focus in the upper pole of the right kidney with a faint posterior shadow with twinkle artifact and what should I do next?
Ultrasound findings: Something in the kidney is causing abnormal ultrasound echoes to be picked up on the scanner. It's possibly a stone. However, this is just a finding. You (or rather your doctor) should correlate this with SYMPTOMS. Whatever this "focus" is, it may not be relevant- talk to the doctor who ordered the ultrasound for a medical opinion. ...Read more
Kub ultrasound finding of anechoic focus at the middle pole measuring 1.5x1.5cm, left kidney. Minimal pelvocaliectasia right kidney. What treatment?
Probably benign: A description of an anechoic focus in the kidney typically refers to a cyst or a cystic lesion. Minimal pelvocaliectasis typically refers to very mild dilatation of the pelvis & calyces which is where urine drained into before it flow out into the ureter. These findings do not sound concerning as pelvocaliectasis may occur when you have a full bladder. Please check with your doctor to be sure. ...Read more

I was only on clozapram for 20 days. I am nervous, anxious, my lower back hurts bad, im having trouble concentrating/focusing fully like my old self?
Clonazepam?: I don't know the medicine "clozapram, " but thought maybe this was a mis-spelling for clonazepam, the benzodiazepine? If you were taking it multiple times daily for 20 days and stopped it suddenly, you could now be experiencing some withdrawal. This is what your symptoms sound like to me. I suggest contacting your prescribing physician, in order to taper Clonazepam more gradually. Good luck. ...Read more

Kidneys also regulate electrolyte balance and acid base through various transporters tubes and mechanisms. The associated adrenal gland has important neuroendocrine functionality including blood pressure control. Read ...Read more
The problem here:
Is that kidney illness is often (unfortunately) SILENT until a good deal of damage is done....Kidney infections have many signs and symptoms but they are usually transient and very treatable!
The "good news" is that a very inexpensive...SIMPLE test (URINALYSIS) is often a clue to "silent" kidney disease!
Hope this helps!
