The Possibility Of Kidney Stones In People With Gout?
Afternoon .. Permission to ask … Is it true that uric acid conditions can cause kidney stones? What’s the connection?
Hello Fitrinur! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Kidney stones are mineral or salt deposits that emanate from the kidney. Various substances that settle and harden then become kidney stones. The substance that most often forms kidney stones is calcium. Apart from calcium, uric acid is also a substance that can form stones. Both calcium and uric acid are also normally present in the urine. However, if the content is excessive or the urine is concentrated (for example due to dehydration or lack of fluids), the calcium and uric acid can crystallize, combine with one another, and form stones. Stones that form due to uric acid usually occur in people who don't drink enough water or lose too much fluid, who consume too much protein (for example by consuming milk protein supplements), and who experience arthritis due to gout. High uric acid conditions in the blood do not always cause kidney stones. Keep in mind that normal people have uric acid in the blood. People are said to have high uric acid disease if the uric acid levels in the blood are higher than normal. Apart from these factors, family factors, obesity, and various digestive problems can also cause kidney stones. If you or someone closest to you has kidney stones, immediately consult a urologist. Drink enough water to avoid kidney stones.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
