For yrs I've had a fasting glucose in the 90s.not diabetic. what would make it to drop to 69 after eating? Also 1 renal pelvis enlarged no stones

Also, a typical glucometer is only accurate +- 20%, so that 69 could be higher. Your glucose levels appear to be quite normal. Why are you testing? ...Read more

I had a CT and it showed i had numerous puncate stones in my renal pelvis and that my common bile duct was dilated by 12mm what do these represent?

Depends: Punctuate stones in pelvis are phleboliths and basically meaningless. Your cbd is a diff issue. The cbd can get distended with age but at your age that's to big. Also, if your gallbladder has been removed it's not uncommon to see the cbd get dilated. If not, you should have this finding further evaluated. A GI doctor can certainly help with that. ...Read more

We first need to know if this is a kidney cancer or a transistional cell cancer(tcc of the renal pelvis). Surgery is the main treatment unless there is already spread of the tumor in which case some of the drugs like you mentioned(axitinib/afinitor) may be useful. ...Read more

How does pyelonephritis affect the renal pelvis?

Pyelonephritis: Although pyelonephritis may affect all areas of the renal parenchyma, the question addresses the pelvis. One can get papillary necrosis with some of the necrotic papillae breaking off and either obstructing the pelvis, or fragments (micro or macro) of material may appear in the urine. Radiologically there may be classic calyceal deformities seen. This usually involves both kidneys. ...Read more

What are complications of renal pelvis or ureter cancer?

What are complications of renal pelvis or ureter cancer?

Bleeding: Cancer in these areas usually causes microscopic or visible blood in the urine. It can also cause obstruction to the outflow of urine from the kidney and cause kidney swelling (hydronephrosis). This then can also cause kidney pain in the flank area when the kidney becomes obstructed, similar to the pain from a kidney stone. If left untreated, these tumors tend to grow and metastasize. ...Read more

I have Tiny concretions Right kidney lower pole and left Renal pelvis. what are its effects?

Knowing they are there is the important thing. Your Primary Care Provider will determine if a consultation with a UROLOGIST is necessary Hope this helps Dr Z ...Read more
