What would you like to do?
I ordered Renavive because I have had kidney stones recurring for a number of years. They were painful but not so bad that I had to go to the hospital. I initially ordered a three month supply of Renavive (taking 2 a day). My kidney stone problem seemed to go away during this period. Then I stopped taking it and had several more attacks of kidney stones. So I reordered it and for a couple of months took 2 a day and now I take just a maintenance dose of one in the morning with a big glass of water and I haven't had any stones for probably 5 or 6 months. I can't speak for anyone else, but it seems to work for me and I probably will continue the 1-a-day dose for quite a while; small price to pay to not have that excruciating pain.

No. Dialysis is not necessary for kidney stone treatment. In most cases, the doctor may either perform lithotripsy, which is using sound waves to make the stone explode/dissol…ve, or go up the urethra with a small tube to grab the stones. If this is not an option, the doctor will treat the pain involved with the stones with prescription pain killers. Kidney stones are only a serious health risk if they are causing blockage, and in most cases pain is the only real problem involved with them.
Just had second surgery on my mini schnauzer and the first cost almost 1000.00 for everything leading up to surgery. I called around to vets when this occurred a second …time and got the next vet to do everything including x-rays for 400.00 total . Check with your local humane society and they might know of a vet that is more cost effective like mine did.
To remove stones from the kidney, most doctors advise lithotripsy which uses sound waves to blast the stone into smaller pieces that are easier to pass. This is better and muc…h easier to recover from than the invasive method of cutting into the kidney and removing the stones.
Though it depends on the person and the stone that is involved, there are treatments for kidney stones. Lithotripsy, a common procedure to treat kidney stones, involves usin…g ultrasound (sound waves) to break the stones into smaller pieces to make passing the stone less painful and easier. The doctor may also go up with a small tube to "grab" the stone.
It could be laser treatment or perhaps if medication and increase fluids can solve it first.
i have stones in both kidneys and i undergo Lithotripsy every 5 weeks. They give you gen anesthesia and shock the side of you and break the stones up. You can get anywhere fro…m 3000 to 10000 shocks and its a big help To my knowledge there are three options- (1) You'll be prescibed pain pills and pass the stone. (2) If the kidney stone is to large to pass, it may have to be surgically removed. (3) There is a certain chemical that can dissolve kidney stones.
Changes in your lifestyle and altering your diet are natural ways to start to attack the problem of kidney stone formation. The most commonly eaten foods, which should be avoi…ded include: spinach, beets, peanuts, chocolate, sweet potatoes, green peppers, grapes, celery, red raspberries, and strawberries. Drinking more water is an essential lifestyle change to prevent kidney stones from forming. Kidney stones can be dissolved by citric acid, which has been shown to eliminate hard materials which are the basis of kidney stones. Adding fresh lemon juice to water is a great way to naturally break down kidney stones. Cranberries are another great fruit for dissolving kidney stones to gain kidney stone relief. Cranberries have often been used for urinary tract health and are very useful for helping prevent kidney stone formation. Citrates, (found in fruit and vegetable juices such as orange and carrot) can help to reduce the formation of uric acid and calcium salts that are responsible for making up kidney stones. Cutting back on salt intake is also necessary to avoid a build-up of calcium, which can grow into kidney stones.
Yes. Lots. A quick google search found many pages, the following is just one: http://www.ayurvediccure.com/kidneystones.htm In addition to a vegetarian diet, moderate exercis…e, and lots of cranberries, you can help the stone pass with vibrations. Whether you use a high frequency massaging vibrator, an ultrasound machine, or simply drumming on your own belly, vibrations can help.
Ultrasound is less invasive - i.e. nothing needs to enter a body cavity. The disadvantage is that after the ultrasound breaks up the stones they still have to pass.
Alternative treatments for kidney stones include the use of herbal medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, acupressure, hypnosis, or guided imagery to relieve pain. Starfruit (Aver…rhoa carambola ) is recommended to increase the amount of urine.
why not i had kidney stone and now i find out i was low on b12 . kidney and liver and clams have the highest amount of b12, so like fixes like .but powder b12 is best
Because of the speed and angle in which the ultrasound waves can hit the kidney stones. If the sound can be low or high enough, they can very easily make just about anything c…rumble.
Yes if it's more than 1cm it won't be able to get out the normal way and probably has to be split in lesser parts .
Sound waves cause the stones to weaken and break up. Broken pieces are small enough to be passed during urination.
Depending on the size of the stone, naturally passing a kidney stone is possible. Ureteroscopy can be used to remove the stone, or break it into smaller pieces for easier pass…ing. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy is used for larger stones. Sound waves are passed through the body to jostle and break up the stone for easier passing.
Your doctor might be the best person to ask about information on kidney stone treatments. You can also go to the library and read through specialized medecine books.
