What Causes Kidney Stones?

What Causes Kidney Stones?

A kidney stone is a hard, crystalline mineral development, which forms within the kidney or the urinary tract. It is called nephrolithiasis in medical terms. Kidney stones occur due to the decrease in urine volume or due to an excess of substances in the urine which are stone-forming in nature. Dehydration is considered to be a primary risk factor for kidney stones too.

Causes of kidney stones:Kidney stones develop when the urine contains increased amounts of crystal forming substances. They include calcium, oxalate and uric acid in amounts which the fluid in the urine cannot dilute. Your urine may also lack the substances which help in prevention of crystals from sticking to each other, thereby enhancing the conditions for kidney stones to form.

The balance of your urine can change due to several factors:

  1. Not drinking sufficient amount of water makes the salts, minerals and other substances present in the urine to stick together, which may lead to the formation of a stone.
  2. The normal urine balance may get disrupted due to several health conditions, which lead to kidney stone formation. Diseases such as gout or certain inflammatory bowel diseases can also cause kidney stones.
  3. Many cases of kidney stones are hereditary and run in families, affecting family members over many generations.
  4. A rare cause of kidney stone formation is the overproduction of hormones by the parathyroid glands, which results in increased levels of calcium leading to calcium kidney stones.

Types of kidney stones
Kidney stones are of different types, which occur due to several, different causes. They are as follows:

  1. Calcium stones: Calcium stones account for being the most common form of kidney stones. They occur due to excessive calcium in the urine. This may happen due to an inherited condition known as hypercalciuria, the overreaction of the parathyroid gland, kidney diseases, several cancers or from a condition known as sarcoidosis. The stones may be large and smooth or rough and spiky.
  2. Struvite stones: These stones are caused due to infections. And they usually occur after a urinary tract infection. This form of kidney stone is more common in women though.
  3. Uric acid stones: These stones occur due to large amounts of uric acid in the urine. It may occur from having a high protein diet, from a health condition called gout or from a hereditary condition where the amount of uric acid in urine increases.
  4. Cystine stones: These are rare kidney stones and occur due to a hereditary health condition known as cystinuria.

Kidney stones occur due to the change in balance of water, salts and minerals, which are present in the urine. Insufficient water consumption is often the most common cause of kidney stones. So make sure you drink lots of water to keep stone formation at bay. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Kidney Infection - How To Understand It?

Kidney Infection - How To Understand It?

In most cases, a urinary tract infection affects only the urethra and bladder("Lower" UTI) but in some cases, it can affect the ureters and kidneys("Upper UTI) as well. This is known as Pyelonephritis or a kidney infection. If this infection spreads to the bloodstream, it could cause serious health problems. Since women have a shorter urethra than men, they are more susceptible to kidney infections. This is because the bacteria typically enter the body through the urethra. 

The most common symptoms of this type of kidney infection are: 

  1. Frequent urges to urinate 
  2. Painful urination 
  3. Backaches 
  4. Fever or chills 
  5. Nausea and vomiting 
  6. Presence of blood in the urine 
  7. Foul smell while urinating 
  8. Cloudy urine 

Pyelonephritis is caused by the same bacteria that cause lower urinary tract infections. In some cases, it may also be caused by E. coli or klebsiella bacteria found in stool. In rare instances, bacteria from the skin can also trigger this disease. The obstruction of urine flow or reduced urine flow can increase a person’s risk of suffering from this disease. Some of the causes for this obstruction include: 

  • Presence of stones in the bladder, ureters or kidney 
  • Tumours or cancerous masses in the abdominal or pelvic area 
  • Benign prostatic hypertrophy 

Kidney stones can also increase the risk of this disease by proving the bacteria with a place to multiply. Lastly, people suffering from diabetes or other conditions that impair the immune system are more susceptible to kidney infections. 

A thorough physical examination along with a urine analysis and urine culture are the first steps to confirming a diagnosis. Some doctors may also ask for a CT scan, blood cultures and an ultrasound of the kidneys. In an ultrasound, your doctor will also look for kidney stones or birth defects that could increase your risk of this disease. 

A 7-day course of antibiotics is enough to cure this disease in most cases. As long as the patient can take oral medication hospitalisation is not required but if the patient is nauseous and constantly vomits, hospitalisation may be suggested as the medicine will need to be given intravenously. In rare, extreme cases, the infection may cause the development of an abscess.

Abscesses cannot be cured by antibiotics and must be drained. Hence, kidney infections can be serious and one needs to take proper care if the symptoms are present.

Kidney disease can cause low haemoglobin. You can give him injections to bring it up after referring with your nephrologist. Breathing difficulty can be because of low haemoglobin or fluid overload or heart problems.

Mild hydronephrosis in the left kidney due to left ureteric calculus. What to do?
Dear lybrate-user. You will need evaluation to find out the nature of stone along with status of kidneys. If it is a small stone it is likely to pass out on its own with some medical help. If it is large or obstructive then a surgical removal might be required.

I have urinary infection. Want to urinate but can not. Have pain in lower abdomen and back.

I have urinary infection. Want to urinate but can not. Have pain in lower abdomen and back.
I suggest you to go for once whole urine check up, & scan abdomen, to rule out the reasons. Maintain proper hygein. A sif in case of infection, its needed. Take more water. Minimum 3-4 litres/day, though you do not feel like to take. Here I advised scan to rule out any ranal stones, the t/t also, depends on that. If any stones, found, depending the size&location, there are good homeo medicines for that, which will help to prevent the recurrence also, by following proper guidence, like water intake, etc.

Check the blood sugar level and urine analysis to rule out diabetes and urinary tract infection. Drink water only when thirst is there. Do kiegel exercise. Symptomatic homoeopathic treatment for 5 days can clear the problem. Nothing to worry.
