Kidney stones have been the most common problems of the urinary system. A kidney stone is nothing but a concrete mass of small crystals situated in the kidney, ureter, bladder or urethra. A kidney stone(s) or renal calculi is formed when many crystals are formed due to substances in the urine. The development of stones can take weeks to months.

Chemicals that form stones are calcium, oxalate, cystine, struvite, uric acid & certain medicines. These stones are formed due to infection, dehydration or stress to the kidneys. Kidney stones can cause severe pain in the back or abdomen or the groin area once it starts moving down the ureter. There are some symptoms of kidney stones such as-

  • Severe Pain in the Back, Abdomen or Groin
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Frequent Urination
  • Urinating in small amounts
  • Fever
  • Urine with a foul smell
  • Blood in Urine
  • Pain during urination

Individuals should certainly consult a doctor if-

  • There is pain that is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, fever, and chills.
  • There is blood in urine or if there is difficulty in passing urine.

Once the doctor has determined and identified the condition, a treatment is prescribed for the patient. Kidney stones should be treated early as it can lead to dangerous conditions with time, and emergency measures may be required. Kidney stones come in many sizes ranging from 1mm to 28mm, kidney stones within a 3-4 mm range are passable, but ones bigger than them may cause severe pain while urinating or even passing from the ureter to the bladder.

Kidney stones can be diagnosed with a physical examination or other tests such as-

  • Blood tests for phosphorous, electrolytes, calcium and uric acid

  • Blood Urea Nitrogen Test
