Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are solid formations comprising minerals and salt that form within the kidneys, also referred to as renal calculi, nephrolithiasis, or urolithiasis. Various factors, including diet, excess body weight, specific supplements, drugs, and certain medical conditions, can contribute to the development of kidney stones. Any part of the urinary tract, including the kidneys and bladder, may be susceptible to kidney stones and related diseases. When urine becomes concentrated, minerals can crystallize, adhere together, and often result in the formation of stones. While the passage of kidney stones can be intensely painful, early detection usually prevents permanent harm. Depending on the circumstances, managing kidney stones may only require painkillers and increased water intake. Surgery may be necessary in cases where stones are lodged in the urinary tract, associated with an infection, or causing complications.
