4 mm kidney stone still hasn't passed and its been 3 weeks. Could the stone have dissolved if ive been taking Fenugreek for 2 weeks? Home remedy?

4 mm kidney stone still hasn't passed and its been 3 weeks. Could the stone have dissolved if ive been taking Fenugreek for 2 weeks? Home remedy?

Here are some. ..: Less than some 3% of urinary stones - usually uric acid - could be dissolved. And a 4-mm stone has a chance of some 75-85% to travel through ureter to the bladder in some 2 weeks, but not always the case. Besides, there has been no known herbs or "magic" pills for dissolving a stone except intensely alkalizing urine may dissolve uric acid stone. So, taking it out with laser is a good choice. Ask.

Is baking soda a good remedy for preventing kidney stones and if so, how much?

Is baking soda a good remedy for preventing kidney stones and if so, how much?

Not really: Unfortunately, if it was helpful, you would have to essentially subsist on the supplement, to keep your urine ph alkaline...Which is far more likely to create other health problems over the long run than prevent some kinds of kidney stones. Only effective method for prevention is maintaining good hydration. Not going overboard on soda (pop) might help also.

Hoping you can tell me, is transplant ever an option for kidney stone treatment?

Very, very rarely.: In patients with renal failure caused by some large kidney stone a transplant may be performed. During my fellowship, I saw a patient who had a large staghorn calculus (stone) in his solitary kidney that eventually led to renal failure. He eventually received a transplant.

Hi I am under treatment for kidney stone, can I take nutrilite daily suppliments?

Hi I am under treatment for kidney stone, can I take nutrilite daily suppliments?

Ask your doc. . .: Seriously, you need to ask your treating physician about what you want to take. Better yet, tell him/her everything you take, both prescription AND over-the-counter medications PLUS dietary supplements. Of note, Nutrilite is a brand, not a specific product, so it's impossible to give you more precise info. Worse, there's no product/ingredient list on their website, so no one can tell much about it
