Kidney stones or urinary tract stones are stones formed in the kidney, and include stones in the kidney cavity and urine leader, it is called the upper urinary tract.
Kidney stone disease may be due to a variety of reasons, and hence disease severity varied greatly: from a single case with a small stone which passes by itself, to lifelong severe disease with numerous hospitalizations and risk of renal failure and death. The risk of developing kidney stones at some point in life is 10-15% for men and 3-5% for women. That is almost one out of five men and one in 20 women get kidney stones. Has it once had kidney stones, the 50% risk of forming stones again within the next 10 years. If you have received their first stone at an early age, the risk is even higher.
When you drink more water, you urinate frequently and each time the stones will be removed by your kidneys. More water thorough the urethra will push the stones beneath the bladder, even though it is slightly larger in size. Although it will cause pain, you get rid of most kidney stones. When you undertake kidney stone removal treatments, you are left with broken pieces of stone in the kidney, most of the time. If you know the secret to wash out the stones, you can stop the further development of stones.
These substances may include calcium oxalate, uric acid, cystine, or xanthenes. These salts can become extremely concentrated under certain conditions: if the volume of urine is significantly reduced chronic thirst and dehydration; Or if unusually high amounts of crystal-forming salts present (infection). When concentration levels reach a point where the salts are not dissolved, the crystals precipitate out and form.
An important note to anyone with kidney stones is to avoid cold foods or drinks. Cold drinks chill your internal organs and weaken them, particularly the kidney and spleen.
Most stones are calcium based, so it is important to avoid excessive consumption of milk, butter, cheese and other foods rich in calcium from dairy products. If you had a kidney stone, should not have more than one gram of calcium per day - equivalent to about three glasses of skim milk.
Table salt and spices high in sodium should also be avoided. Salt restriction would help to reduce the concentration of calcium in urine. You should reduce your sodium intake to two to three grams per day. Besides limiting high-salt seasonings such as ketchup and mustard, reduce consumption of processed and pickled foods, luncheon meats and snack foods like chips and cookies.
The best way to prevent formation of kidney stones is to drink plenty of water daily. Increase your fiber intake and reduced meat consumption. Try to eliminate coffee, tea, and colas from your diet as well. As always exercise can keep your body healthy and staying active can prevent stones from forming.
The beans, cocoa, instant coffee, parsley, rhubarb, spinach and black tea all loaded with stone causing oxalates.
The Daily Value for vitamin C is a mere 60 milligrams, but many people swallow more benefit from the many healing benefits of vitamin C. It is particularly important for people who had kidney stones to not jump on fashion vitamin C with very enthusiastic. Some doctors recommend that if you take vitamin C, it remained below 500 milligrams. This is because a byproduct of metabolism of vitamin C can oxalate, which is half of the most common kidney stone.
The reason for the formation of kidney stones is complex and partly unresolved. Calcium stones represent 75-85% of all urinary tract stones. If the urine becomes saturated with calcium, this would precipitate the oxalate, phosphate or both in the form of calcium stones, as clearly seen by X-ray due to calcium content. In 5% of cases are cause increased formations of the calcium-regulating hormones in the parathyroid glands. Urinary acidity (pH) may also play a role in the excretion of phosphate and oxalate. Stone formation due to infection occurs in 10-15% of cases. The stones can take considerable size and understood sometimes an entire kidney. Uric acid stones, which constitute 5-8%, due to elevated levels of uric acid in the blood, which represents 1%, due to a hereditary disease causing increased excretion of the poorly soluble amino acid cystine.
