Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have phimosis, yellow urine, knee pain, constipation, and lack of hunger. I am having a digestion problem. For the last three years, I went to so many different doctors but did not recover. And from the past few days, my urine turns yellow, not all the time but most probably. And also I cannot pull my foreskin back to the tip.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First for phimosis, if it is painful and bothersome, please consult a urologist for steroid cream prescription which most probably will help, otherwise, the next option is circumcision. For constipation, eat high fiber food like oatmeal, citrus fruits, barley, wheat flat breads, etc. Avoid high carbohydrate food like rice, white flat breads, fried items, banana. Avoid taking stress as it aggravates digestive disturbance.

For good digestion, eat good breakfast, light dinner two hours before sleep. For yellow urine, do you see any froth in urine and do you have any fever associated with yellow urine? I could not see your report as it did not open up. Please send it again. Then I can tell something further about it. Drink 4.5 to 8.5 cups of water a day in divided portion like five times a glass in a day.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Hope you are doing fine.

I checked your reports (the attachment removed to protect the patient's identity). All are normal except for low Vitamin D and Vitamin B12. Eat meat, liver, eggs, milk, and spinach. If you are vegetarian I would recommend taking an injection of Vitamin D once every two months. For vitamin B12 supplement Folfet-mecobalamin once daily for thirty days. I saw your kidney report. I would recommend a urine report with urea and creatinine (renal functional tests). Knee pain is most probably due to vitamin D deficiency. How is your phimosis?

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