Kidney stones are an accumulation of mineral salts that can lodge anywhere along the course of the urinary tract. They can be one of the most painful of ailments.
Human urine is often highly saturated with uric acid, phosphates, and calcium oxalate.Normally, due to the secretion of various protective compounds and natural mechanisms that control the PH of urine, these substances remain suspended in solution.
However, if the protective compounds are overwhelmed or immunity becomes depressed, the substances may crystalize and the crystals may begin to clump together, eventually forming stones large enough to restrict urinary flow.
These stones can be jagged or smooth.
Symptoms Of Kidney Stones
Symptoms of kidney stones include:
- pain radiating from the upper back to the lower abdomen and groin
- profuse sweating
- frequent urination
- pus and blood in the urine
- odorous or cloudy urine
