• Kidney Stones

    I have been lucky to never have had a kidney stone, but my brother-in-law has suffered with several. From seeing him suffering with kidney stones I understand that they can be extremely painful…especially to pass them out of your body.

    Prevention is the true key to avoiding serious kidney stone attacks, but heredity and gender (men suffer more with this condition than women do) are usually working against those who have a predisposition to kidney disease.

    Kidney stones are formed from the chemicals usually found in your urine such as uric acid, phosphorus, calcium, and oxalic acid. There is no general consensus on what actually causes kidney stones but here are some thoughts on this;

    1. Dehydration
    2. Heredity (family history of kidney stones or kidney disease)
    3. Geographical location – warmer climates tend to have more people with this condition, possibly due to insufficient fluid intake
    4. Diet – if you have the propensity to suffer with kidney stones then foods high in calcium may increase your risk of producing them
    5. Medications – people on diuretics, as well as certain antibiotics and other medications lead to an increase in the creation of calcium in your body which can lead to kidney stones
    6. Diseases/Conditions – those suffering with inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis and some other diseases also suffer with kidney stones

    So what are kidney stones symptoms? You may experience any combination of these general symptoms.

    1. Severe pain in your sides
    2. Frequent feeling of the need to urinate
    3. Painful urination
    4. Pain in your groin area
    5. Pain in your thighs
    6. Sparse urination when you do go
    7. Sweating
    8. Chills
    9. Vomiting
    10. Nausea
    11. Blood in your urine
    12. Lower back pain
    13. Radiating pain or pain that comes and goes in waves
    14. Fever
    15. Fatigue
    16. Disorientation
    17. Deep orange colored urine
    18. Pain when walking

    What is the best kidney stone treatment?

    1. Water – if you have a tendency to suffer with kidney stones then you have to make sure to drink large quantities of water every day. If you notice your urine is anything but clear, drink more water. Sometimes this may be all that is needed to help you pass your kidney stone.

    2. Diet – Things to avoid – alcohol, salt,white flour and products made with this, sugar, caffeine, beets, chocolate, nuts, carbonated drinks, spinach, strawberries, parsley, rhubarb, wheat bran, meat and others. You can probably have these in moderation but not while you are struggling to get rid of kidney stones.

    3. Exercise – exercise helps calcium move from the blood to your bones. Just be sure not to become dehydrated while you are exercising.

    4. Avoid Heartburn Over-the-counter medications containing calcium.
