Patient's Query

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.

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

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

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

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

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

Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Over 10 years I have problem of constipation. Because of which I have stomach bloating every now and then. We had a family wedding last week and now again I am going through the same problem. In spite of drinking so much water still I face the problem. Is there any home remedy or medical advice?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  1. 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.
  2. You can also take almond oil two teaspoons mixed with half glass warm milk at night.
  3. If all these measures do not benefit then you can take bulk laxative like Lactulose syrup every night 15 mL at bedtime.

I hope you find this useful.

Patient's Query

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.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
