Kidney Stone

Various wastes are dissolved in urine. Crystals arise when there is too much waste in too little liquid. The crystals attract other elements and combine together to form a solid that will grow in size unless it is excreted in the urine. The kidney, the body’s master chemist, usually eliminates these compounds in the urine. Having enough liquid washes them out in most people, or other compounds in urine prevent a stone from developing. Calcium, oxalate, urate, cystine, xanthine, and phosphate are stone-forming compounds.

Kidney stones are the crystals of different sizes and shapes that cause pain in the lower back and groin. These stones sometimes get lodged in the urinary tract and these are very painful for the patient. They block the urine flow which needs immediate treatment. To avoid such medical emergencies, timely treatment of the kidney or urinary stones is necessary.

The kidney stones can vary from tiny sand like particles to 30mm and more. The tiny sand-like stones which are less than 2-3 mm are passed with urine flow after taking medicines and increasing the liquid intake. Whereas kidney stones of more than 3mm size require treatment.
