Kidney Stones - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What are Kidney Stones?

A kidney stone is a crystalline and hard mineral material that gets formed within the kidney or in our urinary track. Kidney stones are a common cause of hematuria (blood in urine) and often cause severe pain in the abdomen, groin or in the flank. Kidney stones are also sometimes called renal calculi.

The condition of having a stone or multiple stones in the kidney is known as nephrolithiasis. However, having stones in other locations in the urinary track is known as urolithiasis.Any person can develop this disease, but people with certain diseases and conditions or people who take certain medications like calcium-containing antacids, diuretics and protease inhibitors are more susceptible to this disease.

This illness is more common in men than in women.

More about Kidney Stones :

Urinary stones, mostly develop in patients who are between 20-49 years and people who have suffered more than one attack of this illness are always prone to further stone development.Kidney stones are more common in residents of industrialized countries than bladder stones. Opposite of the same proves to be true for residents of the developing world, where stone in the bladder is most common. It is believed that dietary factors play a major role in creating this difference. Over the last few decades, it has been observed that incidents of developing kidney stones have increased, which is more likely related to the obesity epidemic around the globe.

People with chronically elevated uric acid levels are also more prone to the formation of uric acid related kidney stones. Pregnant women, though the numbers are few, at times develop kidney stones. Factors that may contribute to kidney stone formation during pregnancy includes a slowing of the passage of urine, due to decreasing bladder capacity because of the her enlarged uterus and increase in the progesterone levels in her body.

Often dehydration from reduced fluid intake, over time, leads to the formation of kidney stones.

Diagonsis :

Diagnosis of kidney stones is a controversial procedure. Usually to confirm the diagnosis of this illness, imaging tests are performed on the patients. In case of medical emergency non-contrast CT scans are done on the patients, since this can be done rapidly and it helps to rule out other causes for flank and abdominal pain.

However, in the recent times, as it is believed that CT scan exposes the patients to significantly more radiation, ultrasound scans along with plain abdominal X-ray is used for diagnosing kidney stones. When patients are put on medication, it has been observed that small stones pass out naturally through the urine. However, for larger stones (beyond 9-10mm) lithotripsy is done to break up the larger stones into small pieces, with the help of shock waves, so that they can pass out through the urinary system.

Can't be cured Require medical diagnosis Lab test always required Short-term: resolves within days to weeks Non communicable
Sudden excruciating pain and cramp in lower back region or in the groin and abdomen. Nausea and vomiting. At times bloody urine. Fever and chills. Difficulty in urinating along with testicular or penile pain.

Kidney Stones - Sign & Symptoms To Watch Out For!

Kidney Stones - Sign & Symptoms To Watch Out For!

Kidney stones are one of the most common urinary tract disorders. These stones are the result of an abnormal concentration of urine. The stones might get unnoticed, till it moves around the kidney or passes into the ureter. The stones are basically small deposits of calcium that can cause excruciating pain.

Here is a list of signs that can indicate that a person might be suffering from kidney stone disorder:

  1. Painful Urination: The most common sign of kidney stones is a sudden urge to urinate. The urination occurs even though an individual has maintained the normal rate of fluid intake. When an individual does try to urinate, the amount of urine expelled is less than normal. In case of a normal volume of urine, an individual might experience extreme pain. The pain is the result of kidney stones travelling from the bladder to the urethra.
  2. Back Pain: People suffering from kidney stones often suffer from localized back pain in the early stages. The pain initiates at the side and back, just near the kidney area. As the condition worsens, the pain might spread to the groin, lower abdomen and lower back area. The waves of pain might last from a few minutes to few hours, depending on the number and size of the stones. For men, the pain might also be felt in the testicles and scrotum area.
  3. Blood In Urine: Apart from pain and discoloration, visible signs of blood in the urine are seen in patients who have kidney stones. The color of urine might vary from brown, pink to slightly red with stains of blood. With kidney stones increasing in size, it blocks the urethra, thereby ticking blood along with urine. This condition is referred to as hematuria.
  4. Vomiting and Nausea: People suffering from kidney stones often complain of nausea. It can become so severe that can lead to vomiting. Some other complications related to this condition include dehydration, nutritional deficiency etc. Another theory suggests that, throwing up is the result of body’s endeavor of clearing the toxic material from the body.
  5. Pungent Smell: It is quite common among patients suffering from kidney stones to have a pungent smelling urine. The smell is foul and sticks for a long time. The smell is the result of creatinine waste being accumulated and slowly passing through the urine from time to time.
  6. Difficulty in Sitting: Once the kidney stones gain in size, it becomes increasingly difficult for a patient to sit or lie down for a longer duration. Sitting or lying down puts pressure in the kidney area thereby causing intense pain. People try to combat this condition, by frequently standing up or by having a small walk.

Kidney Stones - Know How They Can Be Treated!

Treatment for kidney stones varies depending on the size and type of the stone or the symptoms caused by it. In case of small stones, medication and simple changes in lifestyle can be enough to treat it, but surgeries and extensive treatments are required if symptoms are severe. 

Following are treatment options for kidney stones:

Small stones with minimal symptoms 

  1. Drinking water: Drinking around 3 liters of water a day will regulate your urinary system and can effectively eliminate small stones. Unless your doctor advices otherwise, drinking ample amount of fluids, usually water, is one of the commonest way to get rid of small kidney stones. 
  2. Pain relievers: There might be a considerable amount of pain and discomfort associated with passing the stone through urine. Your doctor may recommend pain killers like Ibuprofen, Naproxen sodium or acetaminophen. 
  3. Medical therapy: In order to eliminate the kidney stone, your doctor may administer medical therapy. Medication like alpha blocker helps in passing the kidney stone with least pain and more quickly. It relaxes the muscles in the ureter and makes the process relatively easy. 

Large stones with severe symptoms 

  1. Using sound waves to break up stones: In this technique, a procedure called extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), is employed. ESWL uses the help of sound waves to create vibrations which breaks the stones in smaller pieces. This procedure takes about an hour and can cause mild pain and discomfort. Your doctor may administer sedatives to reduce your sensitivity. ESWL has side effects like blood in urine or bruising in the abdomen. 
  2. Surgical removal of kidney stones: Surgical removal of stones is done with the help of a procedure called nepholithotomy. It uses small telescopes and other instruments which are inserted in your back through a small incision. It is generally done in case of large stones and when ESWL fails. 
  3. Ureteric Calculi (Using a scope to remove stones): A thin illuminated tube called ureteroscope is used to remove a comparatively smaller stone in the kidney or ureter. The ureteroscope is equipped with a tiny camera which determines the location of the stone which is then broken into pieces with the help of other instruments. It may require general or regional anesthesia.

5 Effective Management Tips For Kidney Stones!

5 Effective Management Tips For Kidney Stones!

Having a stone in any organ of the body can be a harrowing experience but having a stone in your kidney is the most dreadful experience of the lot. The presence of a kidney stone causes excruciating pain in the host’s pelvic area, and if the stone enters the urinary tract of the host, the misery of the patient increases manifold. The urinary tract may also get jammed due to the presence of the stone, thereby causing problems in the urinary flow of the patient.

Ways to Manage a Kidney Stone-
Consulting a doctor is the first thing you should do when suffering from a situation such as a kidney stone. Doctors will provide the patients with medicines to curb their pain and improve their health. But, one can very well improve their condition by some of the basic home remedies as well. The most common home remedies a patient can act upon to manage a kidney stone in the best possible way are:

  1. Drinking Water- By drinking water in large amounts, the kidney stone starts to break down into smaller pieces, and the elements of the stone get diluted slowly. Ultimately, due to the dilution of the elements of the stone, the stones pass through with the urine of the patient. By drinking the water, you will be passing urine faster than the normal rate. As the stone enters the urinary tract, there are chances that the stone may be passed out while urinating.
  2. Watching Diet- Kidney stone patients should be a bit cautious with the food they consume. They should try and not have food which has high acid content. Low cholesterol levels need to be maintained, so if you want to prevent this from happening you need to cut down on fried and junk food.
  3. High Calcium Intake- Having food which has a high calcium content will help in flushing the stones out. The calcium will combine with oxalates and crystalize them, thereby enabling it to pass it through the urinary tract of the patient.
  4. High lemon consumption- Lemon juice is filled with citrates. Citrates can easily break up the kidney stones into minute particles and give it a Sandy texture. Citrate also helps in moving the stone in the right direction. You can drink lemon juice directly or mix it with warm water and then consume it.
  5. Apple cider vinegar- This again contains a high amount of citric acid which worked very efficiently in our body. It manages to set everything in place. You will be able to digest food in a better manner and will also reduce the pain. It will break down the stone and then pass it. Apple cider vinegar can be consumed with a warm glass of water mixed with one spoon of honey.

Kidney stones is a pretty common yet a serious condition, therefore one should not take it lightly and should consult a doctor as soon as possible. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Ectopic Kidney - Complications Associated With It!

Ectopic Kidney - Complications Associated With It!

While most of the health issues that arise in our body show prominent symptoms, some do not, and the patients discover the problem accidentally. One such condition is Ectopic kidney which is a congenital abnormality wherein the organ is located out of normal place. Generally, the kidneys start forming within the pelvis and then move into their position behind the rib cage. In case of the ectopic kidney, one of the two kidneys does not move to the right place but may remain in the pelvis. Or it may move upward, but fails to reach its desired position. What's more, a kidney may cross over so that both the kidneys are located on the same side of the body. 

How is the condition diagnosed? 
An ectopic kidney may be able to function normally without causing any symptoms, and the diagnosis happens by chance. Sometimes, the health care provider may discover ectopic kidney after feeling a lump in the unusual position in the abdomen or may notice it due to urinary problems and pain in the abdomen. 

What are the complications? 
The most common complications of an ectopic kidney include problems in the drainage of urine from the kidney. At times, the urine may flow backward from the bladder to the kidney, an issue which is medically termed as vesicoureteral reflux or VUR. This, in turn, can lead to a host of health issues such as: 

  1. Infection: Through urine, the human body can wash out bacteria and inhibits their growth in the kidneys as well as the urinary tract. When the kidney is out of its normal position, the urine gets trapped in the kidney itself or the ureter. The remaining urine allows the bacteria to grow and spread. Hence, an affected individual may suffer from back pain, abdominal pain, fever and chills and foul-smelling urine. 
  2. Formation of stones: Calcium and oxalate stones may form in the kidney due to the ectopic kidney. This happens when the urine remains in the urinary tract for a long span of time. It could lead to extreme pain on the sides of the body, blood in the urine, fever or chills, vomiting, burning sensation while urinating. 
  3. Trauma: When the ectopic kidney is present in the pelvis, it could become susceptible to injury from blunt trauma. Such people are required to wear protective gear while performing body contact sports. 

What are the treatment options for an ectopic kidney? 

If tests show evidence of an obstruction, then surgery may be required for correcting the causes of obstruction for allowing better drainage of urine. Also, reflux can be fixed with the help of operation for altering the ureter. When there is extensive damage to the kidneys, then surgery may be required for complete removal of the kidney. So, depending on the condition of the patient, the necessary treatment process would be adopted by the nephrologist.

4 Reasons Why An Ectopic Kidney May Kill You

4 Reasons Why An Ectopic Kidney May Kill You

Though it is well known that maintaining a healthy kidney becomes increasingly difficult over the years, there exists one particular kidney disorder that begins to affect the body very early on. Categorized as a genetic defect, an ectopic kidney refers to the misplacement of a kidney; it often occurs in the womb itself when the kidney somehow shifts upwards or crosses over to connect to the second kidney. Though an ectopic kidney may not be detected for a long time, it may lead to the onset of a number of fatal dysfunctions.

1. Urinary Tract Infection
Since one of the primary functions of the kidney involves clearing out waste products, an ectopic kidney could massively affect the process. Particularly, the flow of urine can be disrupted by the presence of an ectopic kidney as it will tend to retain the bacteria for far longer than is usual. If the urine remains in the system for too long, then it is subject to the development of a urinary tract infection. The symptoms of this may include painful urination, nausea and bouts of high fever.

2. Kidney Damage
Similarly, an ectopic kidney can also cause the urine to back up and invade the kidney region. This brings with a host of complications for the kidney and its standard functions. Though a single ectopic kidney may not lead to immediate kidney damage, the responsibilities for the other kidney doubles as it is subject to a greater load than usual. Should something happen to the other active kidney, your system may be under the threat of the much-dreaded kidney failure.

3. Kidney Stone
As one of the most common kidney disorders that continues to afflict major portions of populace year after year, a kidney stone is accompanied by a great deal of pain and discomfort. These stones are formed by means of substances such as calcium and oxalate that build up in your urinary tract. As an ectopic kidney has the tendency to interrupt the functioning of your urinary tract, the development of these urinary or kidney stones is much more likely.

4. Hydronephrosis
This particular disorder refers to the swelling of the kidney due to an over-saturation of urine. As an ectopic kidney proves more room for the bacterial substances in the urine, they tend to multiply and block the safe drainage of urine from the kidney to the bladder. It can also occur on part of blood clotting, pregnancy, kidney stones and various cancers or tumours.

The above reasons demonstrate the extent to which your body may be affected by an ectopic kidney so make sure you are able to detect it as soon as possible. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Once the creatinine level is high it is better to meet a nephrologist to start medicine so that it comes down how much creatinine will fall only time will tell. If there is no symptoms on the side where kidney is damaged it can be left like that.

How To Protect Your Kidneys And Keep Them Healthy?
Good Evening Folks!

I am Dr. Sunil Prakash, nephrology. I want to talk to my friends about how to save our kidneys. Kidney diseases are becoming incrementally explosive in India. It is possible due to bad lifestyle and bad food habits and due to pollution and our food change and water change being poisoned by excessive use of fertilizers, chemicals and pesticides. That is why more and more patients are now coming with advanced renal failure. Some important causes of kidney failure are diabetes, high blood pressure and pyelonephritis. Pyelonephritis means inflammation of the kidneys. To prevent kidney disease, I would give you the small formula which I say avoid 5 S. First S is sugar. Avoid excess sugar because excess sugar causes diabetes.

And diabetes causes 50% of kidney diseases. 2nd S is extra salt to be avoided. Increased salt intake gives rise to high blood pressure which causes again lot of kidney failure. 3rd S is smoking. Smoking is bad for heart and kidney and causes damage of both. 4th S is stress. Modern lifestyle is full of stresses, but it is our ability to cope these stresses positively which will give us benefit in our life and inability to cope with stresses causes lot of damage to our organs. 5th is sedentary lifestyle. Sedentary lifestyle means couch potato. Such people will get high sugar. They will be obese, and they eventually get diabetes. Such patient also gets lot of kidney failure. So, if you can avoid these 5 S. Plus if you can avoid some Ds. What are these Ds? Ds are drugs. Like indigenous drug, homeopathic, ayurvedic and painkillers, allopathy should be avoided.

They damage the kidney. Even now some commonly used drugs like are also being implicated which causes kidney failure. Any drug which is taken without consideration or without consultation is competent to cause kidney damage. It is called interstitial nephritis. And sometimes it leads to irreversible damage. So, avoid drugs, avoid unnecessarily IV, angiography, CT scans. They should only be done when there is enough evidence that by doing this test and diagnosis, the patient will benefit. And the benefit is more than the risk of die. 3rd D is to avoid dehydration. Especially in summers, in India, especially north India, especially elderly people wo are diabetic, if anti-blood pressure medicines, they should avoid dehydration. Sometimes the dehydration will cause fall in blood pressure and will give rise to acute kidney failure.

So, if you can avoid all these things and live the good lifestyle or top of it I would recommend, people who are above 50 years of age, who are diabetic, hypertensive or whose family has the history of diabetes, kidney failure or any other hereditary failure, they should go for a routine check-up at least once in 6 months. And the check-ups are very simple. Like doing your blood pressure, measuring your blood sugar, doing your serum creatinine and ordinary urine examination. In fact, all healthy people, middle age people should also do it. So, at this point of time, I think I want to say that the treatment of chronic kidney disease by dialysis and transplantation is very expensive. In a country where average income is 15,000/- to 20,000/- of a family for four people.

For them, dialysis and transplant are not possible. The future of kidneys diseases and management in our country lies in prevention and that is what friends, let us lead a good healthy lifestyle. Let us avoid pollution. Let us eat normal foods and lead a good active life. Another important thing is to eat little bit less and walk more. Middle-aged people at least should walk 10,000 steps every day. If we can follow these simple rules, we can be safe from dialysis and transplant.

And thank you very much for your time.

Stones: Remedies To Dissolve Kidney Stones
I am Dr Waheed Zaman principal consultant neurology and renal transplant Max Shalimar Bagh and Max Pitampura. I have got clinic in Rohini Sector 13 that is Care Multispeciality Clinic and we are dealing complete urology specially pertaining to all urology problems specially stone disease, prostate problem then genitals urinary tract, cancers we are dealing, then infertility and about the importance and male infertility specially we are doing in our centres and my main topic of interest is renal transplant.

I have got experience of more than 1000 transplant and I am very much interested and I helped in people, I have given many lectures for cadaveric transplant and we try to promote it. But today I am discussing on different topics that is stone disease, this is very common in India, especially in North India. We get large number of kidney stone patient they usually present with the brain in emergency with a flying plane, radiating down, blood in urine and majority of the times in emergency severe colic pain. So immediately we give pain Killers, we settle this patient and we ask for ultrasound, urine test and kidney function test. On Ultrasound majority of the stones can be detected or indirect evidences maybe there are life dilatation of the kidney, kidney me sujan ho sakta hai or yadi doubt ho toh definitely hum log CT-SCAN karate hain, plain CT-SCAN se 99% stone detect kiya Ja sakta hai. Ek bar stone detect hua phir uske size pe cocern hota hai, jaise general public mein thinking hoti hai ki sab stone nikal jate hain dawai se ya pani se, yeh sahi nahi hai yadi aap dekhenge ki char millimeter se kam size ke jo stone hote hain almost 80 to 90% nikal sakte hain medicine pani se, mainly pani se aap nariyal pani le, pani piye kafi aur nimbu pani, shikanji yeh 3 apne indian drinks jo hain woh best drinks maane jaate hain, wo chote stone ko aaram se flush kar deta hai. 4 se 7 millimeter ke jo stone hote hain almost 50-50 chance hota hai nikalne ka, 7 millimeter se 10 millimeter ka jo stone hota hai around 10 to 20% chance hai or 8 centimetres se jayada 10 percemt se bhi kum chance hota hai ki nikale, par hamare log jayadatar yehi galat dharna bani rehti hai ki nai medicine se sab nikal jayega even ek-daid centimetre ka stone nikal jayega, yeh commonly hamhe OPD main kuch log puchte bhi hain log, sir aap toh medicine do bade se bade stone mein aur galado usko. Aise stone bahut kum hai jo medicine se galte hain specific uric acid stone wagairah hote hain, jo aur excess pani peene se chhote stone to niklenge hee, definitely. Ab ek baar yadi diagnosis ho gaya ki stone kis level pe hai kidney mein kya changes ho rahi hai yadi back pressure changes jyada hai kidney even phat jati hai itna back pressure rehta hai, infection ho jata hai, bleeding hoti hai, toh aise condition bukhar rehta hai infection ki wajah se, toh hum patient ko salah dete hain ki better hai aap operation ki ke liye jaiye aur wait mat kariye. Kyunki yadi do hafte se jyada yadi kidney block rehti hai stone ki wajah se toh reversible kidney damage start ho jata hai. So we have to be very careful, very judicious, listen to your doctor and there are many myths associated with the kidney stone disease, so try to be more judicious. Kidney stone nikalne ki kai padhatian aajkal adhunik lithotripsy ho sakti hai par ab utni popular nahi rahi hai, uske alawa ureteroscopy hai jisse ureter ke stone nikale ja sakta hain. Kidney stone hum log keyhole surgery se karte hain PCNL, mini PCNL techniques hain, aur aaj kal jo latest aagaya RIRS, that is Retrograde Internal Surgery, aaram se hum log peshab ke raste se hi bahut hi patle sukshm yantra aagye hain jisko flexible urteroscope bolte hain, woh peshab ke raste se bladder hote huye ureter or wahan se kidney per pahunchte hain, aur aise even ded-do centimetre ke stone hum log laser se tod sakte hain, aur ekdum dhul ke kann jaise ho jate hain aur woh peshab ke sath nikal jate hain. Bade kann hum log retreat karte hain, uska stone analysis karte hain aur based on that hum log ye plan karte hain ki aage kya treatment diya jaye. So iska follow-up bahut zaroori hai ek baar kisi ko stone banna hai to 70% chance hai ki dubara banega apna lifestyle change kijiye, salt kam le, fast food kam kare, pepsi wagera bilkul minimum karde, it is full of obsolete chai kam kare, coffee kam kare, chocolate band kare aur pani jyada piyen din mein barah se pandrah glass pani peena chahiye, shkanji piye, ek nimbu daily piye, shikanji uska istemal kare uske alawah anaras hai, kele hain inka sevan kare, karele ki sabji zaroor le isse kidney swasth rehti hai, kuch fruits hain jaise especially maine bataya banana and pineapple yeh kafi useful hota hai, jo sabjiya kam leni hai umne bhindi hai, baingun hai, gobhi, palak inka kam kare istemal band nahi karna hai. Sabse badi dawa pani hai, pani piye one lemon day keeps the stone away , aur iska sahi upchar kare otherwise kidney stone may lead to kidney failure even. So aap bade sachet rahey issme, doctor ki sune mein baar baar request karta hoon, hum log daily yrh a problem face karte hain hum log sahi salah denge aapko koi misguide nahi karta hai, yddi kidney damage ho raha hai toh definitely intervene hona chahiye otherwise medical management bhi possible hai chote stone ke liye.

Urological Diseases
Good Morning!

I am Dr. Vikas Agarwal. I am senior consultant and head at VPS Rockland group of hospitals situated at Manesar, Dwarka and Qutub. In my department, we are doing all kind of Urology and kidney transplant related diseases.

If we talk about urology. Urology means all disease related to kidney. Ureter, bladder, prostate in which the most common is kidney stone. In our day to day practice, many of patients in our OPD are coming for kidney stone. And in the surrounding area also we are having so many patients of kidney stones. We offer, as a urologist at VPS Rockland hospital, the minimal invasive way to treat kidney disease, kidney stones. In which the most common technique is the PCNL and RIRS in which we break the kidney stone with the laser and patient can go home from the next day of the admission, so this is the minimal invasive way to treat the stone worldwide, this is the standard treatment and we offer dedicated urology team and latest laser technology and equipment s for kidney stone at VPS Rockland hospital, Manesar. If we come across another common disease that is enlarged prostate disease in which the patient usually complains of difficulty in passing urine having burning maturation, poor flow and in night he has to wake. So at the age of 50 and above, the prostate glands starts increasing and he diagnose with simple uroflowmetry test and ultrasound, the prostate disease and we offer to our patient the minimal invasive against the TORP or the laser prostate surgery and with minimal complication and patient can go home next day of the surgery. Next focus is our on urology department at VPS Rockland hospital, we do all kind of kidney cancer, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, treatment and possibly with the laparoscopic technique which gives all the benefits of the patient, early out of bed, minimal scar, and good cosmetics. Our main focus is to now the kidney transplant program at VPS Rockland hospital as we know in kidney; the most common cause of kidney failure is diabetes and hypertension which is very much prevalent in our society. The patients who came for end state renal disease, the dialysis or the kidney transplant are the two options. But because of lack of the donor many patients do not get the kidney. So they are dependent on dialysis, but if they got a chance to have a donor , kidney transplant is a definitive, more successful operation and we at VPS Rockland hospital offer to the patient with laparoscopic donor nephrectomy in which the donor is operated through the laparoscopic technique and all kind of complicated kidney transplant including ABO incompatible kidney transplant, swap transplant, cross match positive transplant, we are doing at VPS Rockland hospital. The other group of patients in urology we treat with the reconstructed urology. In which the patient has cut off the fistulas of the urinary tract after any gynecology surgery so we treat with laparoscopic pyeloplasty, laparoscopic reimplantation, laparoscopic ureterectomy, so we at VPS rockland hospital have dedicated urology team, dedicated urology suit and all equipment s to deal with laparoscopic and laser technology of urology.

I am Dr. Vikas Agarwal. Wish you good health. Thank you.
