ratings and reviews)
Nephrolithiasis is the process of formation of kidney stones. Nephrolithiasis causes the formation of renal calculus, which in turn causes pain and blood in urine. Formation of big stones causes blockage of the ureter, leading to pain. Symptoms are:
• Excruciating, intermittent pain that radiates from flank to groin
• Renal colic
• Urinary urgency
• Blood in urine
HOW IS NEPHROLITHIASIS DIAGNOSED?
A general physician will suggest blood tests, urine tests and imaging scans if he suspects kidney stones based on your symptoms. If the kidney stone is a frequent issue, the stones that have been passed out will be analysed to identify their composition and determine the cause to prevent further episodes.
HOW IS NEPHROLITHIASIS TREATED?
Treatment for Nephrolithiasis is done surgically by taking out the stone. In many cases, laser surgery is preferred. To manage the pain, NSAIDs are given along with IV hydration and Nonnarcotic analgesics.
DID YOU KNOW?
Along with the above, homeopathy is also known to provide respite from this problem. The treatment may take longer but is very effective in shrinking the stones and obstruction.
