Treatment for Kidney Stones
What are Kidney Stones?
Kidney stones are the formation of minerals and salts in the kidneys, frequently caused by poor diet, excessive body weight, and certain medical conditions, supplements, and medications. Kidney stones usually affect any area of the urinary tract and are painful to pass.
Seek immediate medical attention if you cannot pass the kidney stone. Surgery may be required to remove a lodged kidney stone.
Visit a Doctor
Schedule an appointment with your doctor if you experience:
- Severe pain that prevents you from sitting
- Bloody urine
- Difficulty passing urine
- Pain with nausea and vomiting
- Pain with fever and chills
Kidney stones occur when there is an abundance of crystals, like calcium, uric acid, and oxalate in urine that lacks preventative crystal-formation substances.
Factors that put people at higher risk of developing kidney stones are:
- Family or personal history
- Certain diets (high in protein, salt, and sugar)
- Certain medical conditions (like hyperparathyroidism and recurring UTIs)
- Certain medications and supplements (Vitamin C, laxatives, antacids with calcium, dietary supplements, and medications for depression and migraines)
- GI diseases and surgery (inflammatory bowel disease, chronic diarrhea, and gastric bypass surgery)
Unfortunately, kidney stones are a common and painful medical condition that can either be resolved at home or with surgery in severe cases. Most people develop calcium stones. However, there are three other types of kidney stones. Luckily, Vida-Flo has the best solution for the immediate relief of kidney stone symptoms.
