Kidney stones also known as urine stones, are hard, crystalline stones that are formed in the kidneys, and tend to come out from the urinary tract through the urine. This condition is also known as nephrolithiasis. Some common symptoms of kidney stones are cramps and pain in the kidney area and nausea and vomiting. When the stone passes through the tract and comes out while urinating, it can be a very painful experience. Kidney stones can be diagnosed through an X-ray, Ultrasound or a CT scan. The best way to prevent kidney stones is by adopting certain lifestyle changes like drinking plenty of water daily and avoiding foods that contain Vitamin D.
