Kidney Stones - Know The Different Types Of Stones!

Kidney Stones - Know The Different Types Of Stones!

Kidney stones have become a very common disease affecting millions of people worldwide. Kidney stones can be extremely painful. However, with advancements in medical science, this condition can be easily treated. So, you can put an end to all the angst and worry.

When we talk about stones, the first question that comes to the mind is, how can a stone form in one’s kidneys?
Kidney stones are formed when the minerals and salt in the fluid get deposited in the kidneys. Incidentally, kidney stones form twice as often in men as women and once you get a stone, you are at 50 % risk of getting another one.

Classification of kidney stones
Kidney stones are categorized into calcium containing or calcareous stones and non-calcareous stones.

Why do they form? the

You will be surprised but causal factor for most kidney stones is a nano-bacterial disease like a Helicobacter pylori infection along with peptic ulcer disease. This bacteria forms a calcium phosphate shell and around this further crystallization occurs mostly due to what we eat and a few other issues like Cystinuria and hyperoxaluria about which we are going to be talking in some detail.

Hyperoxaluria

  • Hyperoxaluria is defined as excretion of oxalate in excess of 45 mg/day in the urine.
  • This is a disorder when you have too much oxalate in your urine.
  • Oxalate is a natural chemical in your body, and you can also ingest it via food like beets, rhubarb, spinach, chocolate, nuts, tea, wheat bran, strawberries, and soya foods.
  • Actually, there is no known need for oxalate by the human body and it is normally eliminated as waste through the kidneys.
  • But too much oxalate in your urine can cause serious problems like kidney stones. These stones form when the excess oxalate binds with calcium in the urine to form kidney stones.
  • Apart from your diet, Hyperoxaluria can also be caused due to an intestinal disease like Crohn's, an inherited disorder and surgeries that cause an Ileal bypass or a short bowel syndrome, low calcium intake and other such factors.
  • Sometimes hyperoxaluria may result from changes in the way kidneys handle normal amounts of body oxalate.
  • Hyperoxaluria is found in about 20 percent of individuals with kidney stones and quick diagnosis and treatment of hyperoxaluria is important to the long-term health of your kidneys.

Cystinuria

  • Cystinuria is an inherited or genetic disorder that causes stones made of the amino acid cystine in your kidneys, bladder, and ureters.
  • The first symptoms typically occur in young adults in their 20s and 30s and they continue life-long.
  • Cystinuria has to be managed and treated properly otherwise it can be very painful and can have serious consequences which can damage your kidneys.
  • It causes frequent stone formation which causes blockages in the kidneys and you may need repeated surgical procedures to get rid of them and this can impact kidney function over time.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

To clear your doubts get an ultrasound kub done to rule out any pathology in prostate and follow up with reports.

I am 54 years old having problem of slow urine discharge frequently since last one year. I consulted one of the urologist and he described the reason as increase in prostate gland. He has prescribed me HARNAL OCAS 400mcg (tamsulosin hydrochloride) tablet which I am taking every night. I am afraid if I stop this medicine I will not be able to discharge urine. My father had also this problem and he under gone operation a few years back. I am diabetic also from last 10 years and now take GALVUS MET tablet 50mg /1000mg daily one tablet morning and night before food and Diamicron 60mg half tablet at lunch time. My weight is 65 kg and height is 5 feet and 4 inches. I would like to have your view and permanent treatment for both these problem without undergoing surgery for prostate. Please advice me treatment and its duration.

Hello. I would recommend you to keep taking allopathic medicine for diabetes as it can only be controlled with the help of with any of the pathies! For your BHP (benign hypertrophy of prostate), if the condition is in initial stage then you can think of having homoeopathic medication - Sabal Serrulata Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice daily for 4 weeks, after that revert me back. But if the prostate is enlarged and is in later stage, then now and later there is no other option than a Surgery!

Surgery is the only curative option for cholesteatoma. But before that you need to get a ct scan done (hrct temporal bone) to see the extent of disease. Send me the report.
