What are Kidney Stones?

Kidney stones are hard masses of salts and minerals that form in the kidneys. Kidney stones are also known as renal calculi, nephrolithiasis, and urolithiasis. When the urine in a person's body contains high levels of salts and minerals, it can form kidney stones. The stones develop in the kidneys but can affect other parts of the urinary tract as well. Sometimes, the kidney stones form without any symptoms and get flushed through the urine without causing any discomfort. Other times, the stones may travel to the ureter causing immense sudden pain in the lower back of the person. A kidney stone can vary in size; from as small as a granule of sand to big enough to hurt you.

Different types of kidney stones

Knowing the type of kidney stone is necessary to determine the best line of treatment and reduce the risk of getting the stones again in the future. 

Following are the different types of kidney stones:

Calcium stones - These are the most common type of kidney stones a person may develop. Calcium stones form due to deposits of calcium oxalate. Causes of calcium stones include high amounts of vitamin D, ill-dietary habits, intestinal bypass surgery, and metabolic disorders. 

Struvite stones - Struvite stones may form from a urinary tract infection. These stones grow faster than any other types and do not show any symptoms in most cases.

Uric acid stones - These stones often form when people lose too much water from their bodies due to conditions like chronic diarrhea. They can also form when a person's protein intake is too high. Genetic factors like diabetes can also be a reason for uric acid stones. 

Cystine stones - People with a hereditary disorder called cystinuria can develop kidney stones. Cystinuria is a condition in which the kidneys excrete too much amino acid. 

Tests for Kidney Stones Diagnosis

If your pain indicates kidney stones, the urologist may recommend you undergo the following tests.

1. Blood test - A blood test can reveal the amount of uric acid or calcium in your body. The test can also help evaluate the health of your kidneys and decide upon the necessary treatment.

2. Imaging tests - The urologist may recommend imaging tests such as X-ray and CT scan to confirm the existence of the kidney stones around can also help in kidney stone diagnosis.

3. Urine test - You may be recommended to undergo a urine test over two consecutive days. The urine collection may show the level of minerals that you are excreting with your urine.

What are the treatment options for kidney stones?

  • ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) - It uses shock waves to break the kidney stone into small pieces that can move through the urinary tract & pass from the body.
  • URS (Ureteroscopy) - In this, the ureteroscope is passed through the urethra and into the ureter to remove a stone using laser energy.
  • RIRS (Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery) - It is a procedure for doing surgery within the kidney using a flexible ureteroscope to remove the upper ureter and small kidney stones.
  • PCNL (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy) - It is a minimally invasive procedure in which large kidney stones are removed through a small incision in the skin.
     

Treatment of kidney stones according to size

  • Kidney stones less than 100 mm can be flushed with water and medication.
  • For kidney stones between 10-20 mm, the location and the composition of the stones need to be considered before deciding the treatment.
  • Stones larger than 20 mm are usually treated by ESWL

How to reduce the risk of kidney stones at home?

1. You should drink enough fluid to prevent your urine from becoming concentrated with waste products. You can know whether your urine is concentrated or not just by the color of the urine; the darker the color, the more concentrated it is. If you exercise or if the weather is hot and humid outside, keep drinking water to prevent the body from getting dehydrated.

2. Eat more fruits and vegetables to make your urine more acidic in nature. If your urine is not acidic in nature, there are fewer chances that you will develop kidney stones. But, if your intake of animal protein is very high, your risk of developing kidney stones can increase.

3. Reduce excess salt from your diet. Cut down on foods such as packaged meals, sandwich meats, canned soups, etc.

4. If you are overweight, try to get to normal body weight. Seek guidance from a dietician and begin a weight-loss procedure to reduce the risk of getting kidney stones.

What happens if you do not get kidney stone treatment in time?

Delaying kidney stone treatment is a common mistake many people make. If you or your loved one has a kidney stone, it is important to know that delaying kidney stone removal can lead to complications and kidney damage. Untreated kidney stones can cause hydronephrosis, a condition where the kidney swells up due to build-up of urine. If the stones disrupt the flow of the urine and prevent it from getting drained properly, it can lead to urine accumulation. Untreated stones may clog the ureter and form kidney infections. When left untreated for a long time, the stones can also make the ureters narrower. Untreated kidney stones that grow and cause complications, such as infection​, fever, or blood in the urine, can be particularly dangerous.
