Hi doctor,

Every month I am getting some burning sensation and my urine is very dark that time. Also, I get body ache and slight fever. Now from yesterday I am having the same problem. I assumed it as when my water intake is reduced I get this problem and started drinking more water. Is this the reason or anything to be concerned? Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Whenever you do not take enough water or when you eat meat, your urine becomes concentrated. That is the reason for dark color of urine and burning sensation.
  • If it is due to urinary tract infection, it will be persistent and become worse with passage of time. So, no need to worry.
  • Just drink couple of extra glasses of water, it usually resolves.

Hi doctor,

Is it a must to completely stop meat? Please tell me which food item to avoid.

Hi,

  • It is not necessary to completely avoid, but it is better to cut down to one for two servings per week.
  • Try to reduce your salt intake.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • To avoid constipation, it is very important to consume lot of fiber rich diet like greens, vegetables and fruits. Try to cut down meat intake.
  • You can also take almond oil two teaspoons mixed with half glass warm milk at night.
  • If all these measures do not benefit then you can take bulk laxative like Lactulose syrup every night 15 mL at bedtime. Hope you find this useful.

Hi doctor,

I am very much into non-vegetarian food and have never eaten much of vegetables. Can I take almond oil in warm water instead of milk? Thank you for your help and advice.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, you can take almond oil with water. But, it will be unpalatable and that is the problem.
