Hello Intan, thank you for the question.
Basically, not every disease will cause symptoms in every person. The same disease may not cause the same symptoms in every person. Not every person will experience symptoms of the same disease. That is why there are often cases where a person does not know that he has been suffering from a disease for many years and has been discovered accidentally on a physical examination, when the disease has entered an advanced stage. In theory, kidney stones can cause symptoms such as:
pain in the back, waist, or stomach
BAK disorders in the form of pain, BAK bleeding, BAK little but often, feeling incomplete when urinating, decreased urine volume
rock out like sand when BAK
sometimes accompanied by nausea, vomiting, or severe abdominal pain.
But not everyone experiences these symptoms. Kidney stones, especially those that are small and few in size, can cause no symptoms and sometimes can go out on their own during urination. Large, large, sharp stones are more likely to cause symptoms such as pain and bleeding.
Kidney has a variety of functions in addition to its main function to filter metabolic waste in the blood. One other function of the kidneys is producing erythropoetin, which is a substance that plays a role in the formation of red blood cells. If the kidneys are damaged due to various things, including due to blockage by kidney stones, then erythropoetin production will decrease. Decreased erythropoetin levels will reduce the level of red blood cell production so that someone will experience anemia, which is illustrated by a decrease in hemoglobin on blood lab tests.
Your mother should be routinely controlled by the treating doctor so that further action can be determined. This is important because kidney stones that are not treated can enlarge and cause complications such as urinary tract infections, urinary tract injuries, hydronephrosis due to blocked urine output, and kidney failure. Follow the doctor's recommendations for proper food and drink consumption. Do not take herbal medicines whose composition is not clear because it can worsen kidney function. Kidney stones depending on their size, number, type, and location can be treated with ESWL, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, or open surgery.
Thus information from us, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
