**the following points should be kept in mind:
(i) all patients should be under the regular supervision and treatment of a qualified and experienced Urologist
(ii) Ayurvedic medicines should be taken in the form of additional treatment, and should not replace other, regular treatment or dialysis and
(iii) the attending Urologist should be informed of the decision to start Ayurvedic treatment.

you know uncontrolled blood sugars in diabetics can damage all organs especially kidneys. so keep checking the blood sugar and get the organ testing once a while to control the huge damage

My wife is experiencing what we thought was a UTI. She is prone to UTIs and that is why we thought it was a UTI but these symptoms have worsened. She is experiencing frequent pain when she urinates. Her urine is cloudy and she says it has a distinct smell, calls it a foul smell. Additionally her ankles are now swollen. One foot is tender to the touch. Above the same ankle her leg is a bit swollen. The UTI symptoms began 2 - 3 weeks ago and the foul urine smell accompanied the UTI symptoms. The swollen ankles came about less than a week ago.
