Question
Hi Dr. XXXXXXX Goel,

I'm posting a new query as our ongoing discussion got closed. I have received the reports for 24 Hour urine test.
Calcium 24HR Urine - 114 mg/day
Uric Acid, 24 Hour Urine - 374 mg/day

Here is our earlier conversation for reference:

Hi Dr.
I have recently done ultrasound scanning and couldn't consult a doctor after that. I have attached the results here. Could you please check and shed some lights on what is the problem with the kidney.
Asked by Me , Mon, 24 Jun 2013
Doctor's reply to your question above...
Dear Sir,

You have an angiomyolipoma (AML) in the right kidney. AML does not cause any problem if it is less than 4 cm in size.
You should stop worrying about the AML. The size of 1.4 cm is unlikely going to trouble you in your lifetime. However, you should get yearly ultrasound to followup the size. AML is not cancerous and does not increase your chances of having cancer.

You should get yourself investigated with 24 hr urine ca/ uric acid and oxalate and serum calcium, uric acid to find out the possible etiology of the stone and modify your lifestyle accordingly.

Sincerely
XXXXXXX Goel

Dear Dr.,

Thank you very much for your answer. I'm a bit unclear about the tests you suggested. Could you please let me know the name of the tests which I should mention at the Diagnostic Lab. Also, do I not need to take any medication for the stone problem?
Asked by Me , Mon, 24 Jun 2013
Doctor's reply to your question above...
Dear Sir,

The tests are

Sr Ca/ Uric acid
24 hr urine ca/ uric acid/ oxalate


Once you get these test done then we can plan you for further management of the stone disease.

Doctor's reply to your question above...
Dear Sir,

All the previous ultrasound report does not show angiomyolipoma, I shall treat you as if you have it. As already mentioned the AML does not need any treatment.

As far as stones are concerned, ultrasound may under or over pick the stones and thus needs to be worried about that too.

Get back to me with metabolic workup.

Dear Sir,

I need to see your 24 hr urinary oxalate levels too.

However based on your tests uptil now I am starting you on Syp. Potrate MB6 2 table spoons thrice daily for 3 months.
In addition, kindly follow the dietary restrictions as mentioned below.

1. Drink plenty of fluids; approximately 2 litre every day
2. Salt restricted diet; Whatever salt has been added to food is fine but no top ups.
3. Lemon water twice daily without adding salt
4. High fibre diet
5. Milk and milk products intake- 350-500 ml
6. Restricted protein intake; limit the intake of non vegetarian food to only twice a week.

You need to repeat the ultrasound after 3 months and if possibvle kindly send me your urinary oxalate levels too.

Sincerely

Rajiv Goel
