What is the solution for urine frequency and UTI?

Q: I am a 33 years old man. I have a problem of urine frequency, for the past 1 year now. Lately, I have noticed that I need to urinate at least 10-15 times a day. Sometimes after I urinate, I feel the need to go again. However, I don't have any pain, but there is some burning sensation and all of a sudden I have this urgency to urinate. At night, I have to go at least 2-3 times before I got o bed. The urine colour is mostly yellow, but when I drink more water, the colour is white and it gives a bad odour. I recently went for an abdomen scan, which showed some kidney stones and swelling. The doctor prescribed 2 more tests uroflowmetry and IVP, but both the tests are very expensive. Is there any other solution for this disease?

A:You seem to be suffering from renal stone disease with urinary tract infection. This usually results from an infected stone. Other possible causes for urinary frequency are excessive fluid intake, and decreased functional or anatomical bladder capacity. You need further work-up starting with some blood investigations including renal functions, and later proceeding to tests like IVP, before a surgical procedure is planned for the definitive treatment. Unfortunately, there is no medical treatment or shortcuts for stone disease like yours. Presence of swelling on kidney is not a good sign. The long delay may cause irreversible damage to your kidney.
