Kidney stones are not necessarily as common as say coughs and colds but it is one of the top reasons why people come rushing to the emergency wing of the hospital. Urine liquid is usually colored white or yellow so when you see that your urine is in a different color, say pink, then you worry so you troop to the hospital. When you sense a different kind of pain somewhere below your stomach, you begin to rattle because you know it is not just a simple case of indigestion.
When that sot of thing happens you also rush to the clinic or the hospital. After initial interview and certain tests, you are then confronted with the results you have kidney stones. So how in the world did you get kidney stones?
Not a lot of people are aware of kidney stones. Sure there are medical groups who push for more education about the kidney but most people only hear of kidney transplants. These are pretty major stuff already, kidney stones are very basic but it is a good place to start when it comes to discussing kidney and the importance of a healthy functioning kidney. The formation of kidney stones spring from crystal that are not excreted through urination but the real question is why does this happen. Doctors are not quick to point at any one particular cause but what can be done is discuss the several factors that can be attributed to this condition. Then maybe, the factors can be isolated as per patient’s case.
For one, it can be hereditary so if your parents and grandparents have it then most likely you will have kidney stones as well. It has been observed that a person with a family history of kidney stones are prone to forming kidney stones as well. This is probably the reason why urinary tract infections, kidney relate disorders such as cystic kidney diseases and some metabolic disorders like hyperparathyroidism which are all found to be linked to kidney stone formation are believed to be inherited as well.
Certain food in major food groups are also seen as potential causes of kidney stone formation. However people in the medical field believe that eating these food are major causes of kidney stone formation. People who tend to form high calcium which leads to the formation of one kind of stone called calcium oxalate are requested to limit or avoid certain foods.
These include spinach, beets, soybean crackers, peanuts, okra, chocolate, sweet potatoes, grapes, celery, fruit cake, strawberries, marmalade and liver. These are a bunch that includes delectable delights which is really sad news for those who have to cut down on them so work on keeping those kidneys healthy to keep enjoying those treats.
Just as the causes of kidney stones are quite a blur so are the symptoms and in fact most of the signs go unnoticed. For this reason kidney stones ahs been aptly called as the silent stones. These silent stones should eventually be found out. Scanning the urinary system through special tests called computerized tomography, more popularly known as CT scan, or an intravenous pyelogram help doctors detect kidney stones.
The results from these tests are also vital in finding out the proper course of action to treat the existing condition.
Pregnancy hemorrhoid is a very common health condition resulting from pregnancy, and most women are wondering why.
Most pregnant women acquire more than two pounds from increased blood supply alone that can add to blood pressure in the entire body. This increase in blood pressure can have direct effects to a woman’s wellness such as the occurrence of hemorrhoids.
Most pregnant women also get varicose veins on the pelvis, and hemorrhoids are generally similar to varicose veins, but they only happen in the rectal area. Because of the large mass of connective tissue in the rectal area are designed to engorged and back to its normal size naturally, it is very easy for the blood vessels to get trapped and inflamed, particularly when there’s more blood volume.
Furthermore, the second stage of labor commonly includes pushing and muscular constrictions in the rectal area for prolonged hours on end, so you should not be shocked that hemorrhoids can still occur after you give birth. Such tension puts a lot of strain on the vein linings and this can lead to hemorrhoids.
Also the enlarging uterus puts tension on the blood vessels in the pelvis and the inferior vena cava, either of which sucks blood from the entire pelvis area back to the center of the circulatory system. The inferior vena cava is the really huge blood vessel on the left portion of the body that pulls all of the blood from the lower thighs back to the heart. Thus, when it is contracted by a growing fetus straining to occupy adequate space, it can begin causing hemorrhoids and varicose veins, in some cases in the most unlikely parts of the rectum.
And, to make the situation almost ideal for the development of hemorrhoids, the female body releases large volumes of progesterone in the entire body throughout pregnancy that provides extra straining and coincident relaxation of vessel linings and slowing food absorption down.
While progesterone can pose hemorrhoids, there are two significant reasons that your body needs this hormone.
1. While the blood vessels are relaxing, so are your tendons and muscle linings that allows your body to grow and gradually makes labor during child birth easier.
2. Your body requires to pull every bit of nutrients and minerals it can absorb from food, so when your digestion is slower, your intestines are working extra hard to extract the needed nutrients. However, the mixture of all these effects makes your body a perfect environment for hemorrhoids to develop.
The negative aspect of this is that pregnancy hemorrhoids can be more likely to act as a tendon to support the blood vessels in that portion of the body and is thus decreased, allowing the blood vessels to be more susceptible to inflammation and the swelling added with the slow process of food digestion, constipation (another major cause of hemorrhoids), is more probable to be experienced.
After giving birth, the hemorrhoids will more probably vanish; this is an advantage since a female body can easily heal the hemorrhoids with or without the intervention, than the male body.
However, you should remember that it will take your body a little while to recuperate from the labor of giving birth and for the pain caused by hemorrhoids and discomfort to be completely eradicated. A more direct treatment for hemorrhoids can be applied after giving birth, if prescribed by your pediatrician or a colorectal expert.
