Need help with interpretation of scan result

Hi, My mom is 42 years old... on the 7th of July she was diagnosed with kidney stone.... The findings are the followings:

There is a diffuse fatty infiltration of the liver.

There is a proximal ureteric calculus identified just pass the UPJ in the left ureter. This is a lendth of 12 mm and a AP and transverse dimension of approximately 3.5 mm.

This is associated with some mild left-sided hydronephrosis and left-sided perinephric inflammation.

Thanks for writing to HCM

Fatty liver is a reversible condition and it can be reversed by diet and life style changes.

She need few other investigations like routine hemogram,Random blood sugar(RBS),Liver function test(LFT),Lipid profile,Renal function test(RFT).

She may need some medicines after full investigations.
It may take 3-4 months to reverse the findings.
She should avoid red meat and high fat milk products.
Cook food in olive or canola oil.
She should take limited salt in your diet and should also avoid fried and junk food.
Take lot of fruits and vegetables.She should also increase her physical activity in the form of walking and exercise.

Renal findings are due to left upper ureteric calculus.Calculus is causing back pressure changes in the form of hydronephrosis.Calculus is large and it is unlikely to pass spontaneously.She may need lithotripsy.
You should consult urologist.

Get well soon
