Your Questions About Kidney Stones

April 23rd, 2013

Daniel asks…

How long does it take for kidney stones to leave the kidneys?

I have been diagnosed with kidney stones about a few months ago. I had two of them removed from my urethra along with many more still sitting inside my kidneys.
My question is how long will my other kidney stones that are sitting inside my kidneys come out?

KidneyStones answers:

Kidney stones are unpredictable, there’s no telling how long it could take to pass it, there’s a chance you can’t even pass it.

Steven asks…

How can I help get rid of kidney stones?

My momma has very bad kidney stones that hurt sometimes. I hate to see her like that. What’s some ways for them to break down and go away. She’s already tried beer, olive oil with lemon juice, and surgery, but they came back! Please help!

KidneyStones answers:

A kidney stone is a hard, crystalline mineral material formed within the kidney or urinary tract.

Nephrolithiasis is the medical term for kidney stones.

Symptoms of a kidney stone include flank pain (which can be quite severe) and blood in the urine (hematuria).

Kidney stones form when there is a decrease in urine volume and/or an excess of stone-forming substances in the urine.

Dehydration is a major risk factor for kidney stone formation.

People with certain medical conditions, such as gout, and those who take certain medications or supplements are at risk for kidney stones.

Dietary and hereditary factors are also related to stone formation.

Diagnosis of kidney stones is best accomplished using a CT scan.

Most kidney stones will pass through the ureter to the bladder on their own with time.

Treatment includes pain control medications and, in some cases, medications to facilitate the passage of urine.

If needed, lithotripsy or surgical techniques may be used for stones which do not pass through the ureter to the bladder on their own.

Drink LOTS Of Water To Avoid Kidney Stones

April 20th, 2009

Just a quick note as we head into spring and warmer weather is just around the corner. When we’re in hotter temperatures we are more susceptible to fluid loss. This can often lead to the formation of kidney stones.

So don’t forget to drink plenty of water to ensure you’re doing your best to prevent them.

Another hint: Back in 2006 a study was performed that shows that having a glass of orange juice a day could prevent recurring kidney stones. Due to the level of citrates, OJ is a star performer and even beats out Lemonade!
