Don't Ignore Urinary stones

Urinary stones are hard masses that form inside the urinary tract, that causes the block of urine flow and results in pain, infection or bleeding. Depending on the location of the stone, it may be called a ureteral stone, kidney stone or bladder stone.
Most of the urinary stones are formed from the minerals in the urine that forms crystals and grow into stones. Most of the stones are composed of calcium and sometimes stones are composed of uric acid or cystine. In some cases, stones may be caused due to infected urine, these stones which are a mixture of ammonium, magnesium, and phosphate are also known as infection stones.

The main cause of urinary stone is, the urine becomes too saturated with salts that can form stones. Urinary stones are more common among the following types of people:
  • Hyperparathyroidism 
  • Renal tubular acidosis
  • Dehydration
  • Among people whose urine lacks the normal inhibitors of stone formation
  • Whose diet is very rich in Vitamin C or animal-source protein
  • Who don't consume enough water or calcium
  • People who have a family history of stone formation

In some people, drugs including indinavir or the substances in the diet such as melamine increase the risk of stone formation
Usually, tiny stones may cause no symptoms, but larger stones may cause pain in the back and area between the ribs and the hip. The other symptoms of urinary stone include:
  • Renal Colic
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Blood or a piece of stone in the urine
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Foul smelling urine
  • Urge to urinate frequently

Small urinary stones do not need to be treated, as they pass out on their own. The larger stones are either treated by medications or by stone removal procedures like shock wave lithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, Endoscopic surgery, Ureteroscopy etc.
