Chronic unilateral obstructive uropathy

Chronic unilateral obstructive uropathy is a condition in which there is long - term blockage of one of the tubes -LRB- ureters -RRB- that drains urine from the kidneys.See also : Acute unilateral obstructive uropathyAcute bilateral obstructive uropathyChronic bilateral obstructive uropathyObstructive uropathy
Overview
Abdominal pain , right or left lower belly area Back pain , may be on only one sideBlood in the urineIncreased urinary frequency / urgencyFrequent need to urinate at nightPainful urinationSevere flank pain that may occur on one side , but may also be felt in the groin , thigh , and genitalsUrinary tract infection One for patients that need to detox, and two, for patients that need BT chronic pain management" I'm assuming instead of using the worf better pain relief you used the term BT chronic pain management" We normally use the abrevieation BT for break through pain
Symptoms
Unilateral obstructive uropathy usually occurs when ureteral or kidney stones block the flow of urine . Urine backs up and causes kidney swelling -LRB- hydronephrosis -RRB- .Risk factors for unilateral obstructive uropathy include : Kidney stonesTumors in surrounding structures such as uterus , cervix , or lymph nodesUreteral stones and tumorsChronic unilateral obstructive uropathy occurs in approximately 5 out of every 1,000 people . Does this type of problem usually happen unilateral in MS? A lymph node swelling that doesn't respond to antibiotics coupled with unilateral tonsillar swelling can't be good, right?
Treatment
Your health care provider will perform a physical exam , which includes feeling your abdomen . The exam may reveal a swollen kidney.A blood pressure measure may reveal high blood pressure . In other words, more people suffer from chest pain due to high blood pressure than those who have chest pain because of obstructive coronary artery disease. A urinalysis may show blood in the urine . A urine culture can determine if you have an infection.Kidney swelling or blockage of the ureter may appear on these tests : Abdominal ultrasoundIntravenous pyelogram -LRB- IVP -RRB- Kidney or abdominal CT scan
Causes
This condition damages the structures of the urinary tract . It may result in permanent damage to the kidney . If only one kidney is involved , the other kidney usually continues to work , and kidney failure or insufficiency does not occur . I recently had a hysterectomy and when asked about kidney problems I put chronic renal insufficiency-I have kidney disease, but not majorly.
Tests & diagnosis
If you are prone to kidney stones , drink plenty of water -LRB- 6 to 8 glasses per day -RRB- to reduce the chances of their formation.A diet low in sodium and oxalates and high in citrate may reduce your risk of calcium - based kidney stone formation . I have chronic kidney stone disease and was told quite a while ago to not take calcium supplements; my calcium intake has to be all natural, otherwise it goes straight to the kidneys and forms stones. Talk to a nutritionist for more information on such diets.Urinary tract infections should be treated promptly and thoroughly .
Prognosis
Chronic or recurrent urinary tract infectionHigh blood pressurePermanent failure of the affected kidney -LRB- chronic kidney failure -RRB- I also joined a chronic pain chronic which I would definitley recommend The american chronic pain organization can help you locate one by your area or you can call your local hospital and they normally know of one. Insufficient kidney function may result from disorders including (but not limited to): Acute kidney failure Chronic kidney failure Lupus nephritis Transplant rejection of a kidney transplant Obstructive uropathy Glomerulonephritis Those are ALL kidney problems yielding high potassium Chronic pain is something you have to live with and except, there is no amount off any med that will reduce chronic pain 100% without having to continually increase the dose and remain a zombie.
Prevention
Call your doctor if you have flank pain or other symptoms of chronic unilateral obstructive uropathy.If you have already been diagnosed with this condition , call your health care provider if symptoms worsen or persist despite treatment , or if new symptoms develop . Well, those symptoms don't show up unless you have CHRONIC kidney disease, which takes years to develop. The outside group of the infected are those of us who do have chronic frequent symptoms, but even still I tend to think the majority of those with chronic symptoms or lots of OBs will see a reduction even without medicine within a few years time.
