Kidney or Renal stones (Renal Lithiasis) are small, hard deposits that form inside the kidneys. These are made of mineral and acid salts. Kidney stones can affect any part of the urinary tract — starting from the kidneys till the urinary bladder. Stones often form when the urine becomes concentrated, allowing minerals to crystallize and stick together. Although passing kidney stones with urine can be quite painful, the stones usually cause no permanent damage. However, they can damage the kidneys or reduce their efficacy in the long run. Therefore we need to be aware of the problem and its natural solution. A kidney stone may not cause symptoms until it moves around within the kidney or passes into the ureter — the tube connecting the kidney and bladder. If that happens, the following signs and symptoms may occur: severe pain in the side and back just below the ribs, pain that spreads to the lower abdomen and groin, pain that comes in waves and fluctuates in intensity, painful urination, red or brown urine that may be cloudy or foul-smelling, nausea, vomiting, a persistent urge to urinate and fever or chills if an infection is present. Pain caused by a kidney stone may shift to a different location or vary in intensity as the stone changes its position within the urinary tract. Kidney stones may be caused due to several reasons, depending on which their composition may vary. Calcium stones are the most common. Dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can increase the concentration of calcium or oxalate in urine. Struvite stones can grow quickly and become quite large. These form in response to an infection, such as a urinary tract infection. Uric acid stones can form in people who don't drink enough fluids or who lose too much fluid, those who eat a high-protein diet, and those who have Gout. Cystine stones form in people with a hereditary disorder that causes the kidneys to excrete too much of certain amino acids. Risk factors include – heredity, being over 40 years of age, being a male, dehydration, taking a diet high in protein, sodium and sugar, being obese, having digestive disorders and renal impairments.
