Question:

I have recently diagonsed with hydronephrosis and I certainly do need to lose some weight...Please advise me on what would be right for me as far as weight loss is concerned..Thanks..

Answer:

What is important is the cause of the hydronephrosis - it should not be related to your weight. I suggest you consult with a urologist who can evaluate the problem and suggest appropriate treatment.
