The Cause Of Kidney Stones In A Person?
Greetings, I want to ask, how is the process of kidney stones? Is it because the kidney has leaked? or are the kidneys still normal but only in excess of certain substances? Thank you…
Hello, Nuraini Iin, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In general, kidney stones can be caused because there are deposits of waste in the body that cannot be dissolved. This can be caused by the amount of waste that is too much, not enough liquid, or a lack of certain materials that can prevent the deposition of waste crystals. Some things that can increase the occurrence of kidney stones are:
1. Lack of drinking water
2. Often eat foods high in protein, salt and glucose
3. Overweight / obesity
4. Certain medical conditions, such as: hyperparathyroidism, stomach surgery, IBS
5. Taking certain drugs such as: diuretics, anti-seizures
There are various types of kidney stones, such as calcium stones, uric acid stones, struvite stones, and cystin stones. The method of forming each type of stone is different. For more complete information, you can read articles about "Kidney Stones" or search the medical literature to see the process of forming kidney stones in detail.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
