How do you check for kidney stones?

Diagnosis of kidney stones is best accomplished using an ultrasound, intravenous pyleography (IVP), or a CT scan. Most kidney stones will pass through the ureter to the bladder on their own with time. Treatment includes pain-control medications and, in some cases, medications to facilitate the passage of urine.

Do women have kidney stones?

Struvite stones are mostly found in women who have a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow very large and can block the kidney, ureter, or bladder. Uric acid stones are more common in men than in women. They can occur with gout or chemotherapy.

What is calculus in kidney?

Kidney stones, or renal calculi, are solid masses made of crystals. Kidney stones usually originate in your kidneys, but can develop anywhere along your urinary tract. The urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Kidney stones are known to be one of the most painful medical conditions.

Introduction to Kidney Stones

Kidney stones or Renal calculi, are solid pieces of material that forms in the kidney out of substances in the urine. They are composed mostly of calcium oxalate. A stone may stay in the kidney or break loose and travel down the urinary tract. It is a painful condition.

Different types of kidney stones occur in different parts of the world, and dietary factors probably play a part in determining the varying patterns. There are four major types of kidney stones. The most common type of stone contains calcium. A struvite stone may form after an infection in the urinary system. These stones contain the mineral magnesium and the waste product ammonia. A uric acid stone may form when there is too much acid in the urine. If you tend to form uric acid stones, you may need to cut back on the amount of meat you eat. Cystine stones are rare. Cystine is one of the building blocks that make up muscles, nerves, and other parts of the body. Cystine can build up in the urine to form a stone. The disease that causes cystine stones runs in families.

Signs of Kidney Stones

The most common complaint arising from kidney stone (Renal Calculus; Plural – Calculi) is intermittent dull pain in the loin or back, increased by movement. Sometimes this pain is very severe. Following may be the other complaints:

  • Extreme pain in back or side
  • Blood in urine
  • Fever and chills
  • Vomiting
  • A burning feeling when you urinate
  • Causes of Kidney Stones

Infection or obstruction may play a part in kidney stone formation. Sometimes they occur when the level of blood calcium is abnormally high. Occasionally, stones may develop when the blood level of uric acid is too high, usually from over consumption of meat. Excessive dietary intake of calcium and oxalate and low fluid intake have also been associated with formation of stones. In most cases, however the cause is not known. It has been found that certain persons are having a tendency of forming recurrent urinary stones. Even after treating successfully once, they tend to form stones again and again.

Best Solution: Homeopathic Treatment of Kidney Stones

Kidney Stones, acute as well as chronic, can be effectively treated with Homeopathic Medicines. Homeopathic treatment can avoid surgery in many cases. It is highly recommended in cases where tendency of having recurrent stones is there. Patient’s case history is studied in detail and a well selected homeopathic medicine is given which removes this tendency from patient’s body so that he does not have any more stones again. It has especially proved very helpful in cases of stones where surgery or other procedure is not advisable due to various reasons. All homeopathic medicines are safe, natural, easy to administer and without any adverse effects. If you have any specific question about your condition.

Prevention of any more Kidney Stones

Kidney Stones can be prevented by drinking more water. Try to drink 12 full glasses of water a day. Drinking lots of water helps to flush away the substances that form stones in the kidneys. If you have a uric acid stone, eat less meat, because meat breaks down to make uric acid.
