I had 12 x 15 mm stone in kidney... Lithotripsy done 2 times only little is broke..But technician says it's broken well. Is it safe to go for Lithotripsy for 3rd time?


I was told I am having Nephrotic Syndrome after 24 hours urine and other blood tests. However during the period of test I was having side effects of antibiotics and had oily food and pizzas 2-3 days before. Currently all my kidney blood test (creatin, triglicerides) are very normal, BP is 108/70. Only problem is Albumin which is 4+. I am undergoing treatment from Ayurvedic clinic for panchkarma. Is it advisable for an ayurvedic treatment or I should go for Kidney Biopsy test (advised by an Nephrologist based on the tests).
