Kidney Stones

Kidney stones, more commonly known as the renal calculus are a solid or crystal aggregation which is formed in the kidneys or the urinary tract. The medical term for renal calculus is Nephrolithiasis. These are comprised of calcium oxalate crystals which are formed due to the accumulation of dissolved minerals in the kidneys. Gradually, the deposits grow into large sized crystals which may cause severe pain when the stones pass out of the urinary tract. In most cases, the kidney stones remain inside the body leading to severe pain and blockage of ureter.

The most common cause of formation of kidney stones is the lack of water. Generally, people who drink less than the recommended volume of water have greater chances of having kidney stones formed in their body. The increase in the acidic content in the kidneys leads to the formation of stones. Other causes include the diet with excess content of sodium and potassium, obesity and high blood pressure.
