Fortunately, most kidney stones are excreted from the body without any interference. If you are also a kidney stone sufferer, this information can help you and your doctor diagnose the symptoms of kidney stone and its complications. We need to know about the symptoms of kidney stones to know when to seek treatment

What is Kidney Stone

Kidney stone is a piece of solid material that is formed by the accumulation of substances that usually dissolve in urine
This solid is usually composed of calcium, oxalate and phosphate

The kidney stone diameter can be only a few millimeters or the size of a small stone

Kidney stones are more common in men, but statistics also show the disorder in women and children
Dietary factors may also contribute to increased kidney stones

Usually people don't notice the symptoms of kidney stones - especially small stones

If the stones are small enough to pass easily through the ureter, one will not notice them

Symptoms of kidney stones

Kidney stones are not the only factor
Several factors work together to cause kidney stones in people

Kidney stones are formed when the balance of compounds and some minerals and acids are disturbed and cause the crystalline material to accumulate in the urine

Symptoms of kidney stones worsen when larger stones enter the ureter
The urethra is a tube that connects the kidney to the bladder. The ureter has very sensitive tissues
When the kidney stone is large enough to pass through the ureter, it scrapes the wall of the ureter, causing irritation and even injury

If the stone is too large, it may stay in the ureter and block the flow of urine to the kidney. Some of its symptoms are as follows

Pain at the time of urination

The most common symptom of kidney stones is pain when urinating

The amount of pain varies among individuals. These pains are normal but in some cases, they become very severe
These pains usually occur occasionally, but sometimes they increase
The amount of pain depends on the location of the stone and its small size
This pain is usually accompanied by a burning sensation in the urine

People with kidney stones usually have a lot of urine, but urinate very little

Low back pain

Lower back pain is one of the most important symptoms of kidney stones
Pain from kidney stones depends on the location of the stones
Whether the pain is in the right part of the waist or in the left part depends on whether the stone is in the right kidney or in the left kidney
Pain is initially low

But after 4-5 minutes it may increase. Usually during this pain, people are unable to walk and pain is very difficult for them to bear

Pain in other parts

Kidney stone pain doesn't just appear in the waist. Depending on the location of the stone, pain can be felt in different parts of the body

The sites of pain are often the middle part of the waist, lower back, groin and pubic bone in men and women

The pain usually starts in the lower back, though the parts we mentioned may also have pain

Blood in the urine

The presence of blood in the urine, called urinary blood, is one of the symptoms of kidney stones caused by irritation of the urinary tract

A large stone with a sharp texture can pass through the ureter and can irritate the canal and cause bleeding in the walls

The blood is mixed with urine and the urine turns red or brown
If you notice such a symptom, see your doctor immediately for treatment

Frequent urination

The kidney stones in the bladder produce symptoms of the bladder stone and give the person a feeling of frequent urination

This occurs when the bladder stones are large enough to stimulate the bladder and cause urination

These symptoms should be distinguished from the symptoms of diabetes. In the bladder stone, urinary excretion increases, but urine excretes slightly

In diabetics, there is frequent urination but high urine levels

In addition to increasing the frequency of urination, the kidney stones in the bladder make a person feel constantly urinated

The feeling is usually sudden, forcing the person to go to the toilet, even if the urine level is too low

Urinary Tract Infection

Symptoms of bladder stones occur when the kidney stone blocks the ureter for a long time
The urine does not come out easily due to the stone being blocked ,imagine a stone in the water hose
This causes the urine to stay in the urinary tract for a long time

Urine is a bacterial repellent so it can easily cause infection
Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms include burning sensation in the urine, constant urination, frequent but low urine, fever, low back pain, and bloody urine

Fever

Another sign of kidney stones is fever. Fever is the body's natural response to the introduction of germs / microorganisms

Fibrillar fever (with fever) is caused by inflammation in the urethra

Which raises the patient's body temperature

A fever is an indication of an infection, so you should see your doctor

To give you an antibiotic that fights the bacteria that cause the infection

nausea and vomiting

Urinary tract disease usually affects the digestive tract
It causes flatulence and flatulence, which can lead to nausea or vomiting
Because urinary tract stones are near the gastrointestinal tract

Physical exhaustion

Physical exhaustion is one of the symptoms of kidney stones

People with this disorder usually feel weak, tired, and weak
Appetite and ability to perform are also reduced

Foot swelling

The legs swell because of excess water buildup in the foot
In addition, in kidney disease, blood protein levels also decrease, which causes swelling of the legs

Skin darkening

One of the symptoms of kidney stones is darkening of the skin. The skin becomes dark and itchy and not lively

The reason for this is the accumulation of extra substances that the kidneys cannot excrete through the urine
Conversely, skin tone is a sign of chronic kidney disease

This staining is due to anemia caused by chronic kidney problem
Anemia or deficiency of red blood cells causes discoloration of the skin

Symptoms of Kidney Rock in Women

Symptoms of kidney stones in women are not easily recognizable because lower abdominal pain is often overlooked in women

Here are some signs that may indicate the presence of crystal-shaped stones

Nausea and fever and chills

Some women experience nausea, vomiting, fever, and high chills due to kidney infection

Urine discoloration

The color of the urine becomes pink or red as the blood enters the urine
Frequent urination and burning sensation also occur during urination. These symptoms indicate kidney stones in women

Abdominal pain

Common and primary symptoms of kidney stones are abdominal pain, pain that reaches below the abdomen and is similar to pain caused by renal failure

You feel very itchy

When the kidneys are not functioning properly, they can accumulate extra material in the body. This can make you feel very itchy. Itching may continue until it results in injury and bleeding. Symptoms of kidney stones in women are usually felt in the hands, knees or waist and even other parts of the body. So if you are constantly itching, see your doctor

Shortness of breath

Other symptoms are shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Improper functioning of the kidneys causes fluid to accumulate in the body. The fluid can also accumulate in the lungs, which can lead to shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Lack of sufficient red blood cells responsible for oxygenation causes oxygen deficiency and difficulty in breathing

Chills

Kidney stones in women are characterized by a sense of cold and chills in the body

This is due to kidney disorders

Kidney disorders can cause anemia or deficiency of red blood cells

Anemia causes the body to cool down. In some cases, the kidneys suffer from colds and chills in the middle of the night

So if you feel cold and chill in times when the weather is not too cold, see your doctor

Dizziness and difficulty concentrating

As mentioned earlier

One of the symptoms of kidney disease in women is anemia which can cause a cold at midnight
Anemia in addition to the cold can cause insufficient oxygen to reach the brain of people with kidney problems
This causes people with kidney disease to feel dizzy and unable to focus on activity
Severe dizziness can cause falls or imbalances in walking

Sense of pain around the waist

The possible symptoms of kidney stones in women are much discussed and almost everyone is familiar with them

Kidney failure or pain can cause a backache

This condition is one of the symptoms of kidney stones in women that is usually caused by urinary tract stones
It causes pain
At first, the pain is occasional, but as the kidney problem gets longer and longer, the number of times the pain gets longer and longer

Hormonal disorders

Disorders that affect the kidneys cause the kidney to fail to function properly in producing hormones
As a result, the blood pressure hormone increases and the production of other hormones decreases
This causes kidney patients - men and women - to become tired, anemic or deficient in blood cells and osteoporosis

Possible causes of kidney stones

Here are some factors that may increase the risk of kidney stones

Men 5 years and older with a family history of kidney stones. However, kidney stones also occur in women of all ages

Constant consumption of foods high in protein, sodium and sugar

- Obesity and dehydration

Other problems such as cystinuria and urinary tract infections

What people with kidney stones should do

Regular exercise in the treatment of kidney stones

Exercise is important for health and fitness. You must be active in the normal treatment of kidney stones

Exercise is the strongest drug with no risk. Many exercises can be done to treat kidney stones. Running and gymnastics are enough

Enough water

Water is the most important thing in preventing kidney stones

Useful fruits for kidney stones

Eating fruit is important because it provides the body with the fiber it needs to aid proper digestion

Eat fruits like watermelon, apple, melon and cherry. These fruits treat kidney stones naturally
This, like drinking water - helps solve the kidney stone problem

Reduce consumption of chocolate and milk

Chocolate and milk have oxalates that you should avoid
Oxalate, along with calcium, can form kidney stone crystals
Therefore, patients with kidney stones should reduce or avoid oxalate-containing foods

In addition to milk and chocolate, spinach, strawberries, wheat, cereals and tea also have oxalates

Calcium intake in the treatment of kidney stones

Usually the body does not absorb calcium more than it needs to
Patients with kidney stones should limit calcium intake - men about 2 mg daily and women about 2 mg

Vitamin C in the treatment of kidney stones

One of the metabolites of vitamin C is oxalate
Because oxalate can cause crystals, so people with kidney stones should limit their intake of vitamin C

Salt and vegetable protein in kidney stone treatment

This can reduce the amount of calcium released in the kidneys

Therefore, if the stone is composed of calcium, sodium salt intake should be limited to 1-2 mg daily

Soluble fiber intake in the treatment of kidney stones

In some cases, insoluble fiber in wheat and rice can reduce the amount of calcium in the urine
Fiber attaches to calcium in the intestine and therefore does not pass through the kidneys

Diet of people with kidney stones

To reduce the likelihood of kidney stone recurrence, patients should avoid certain foods and drinks
They should avoid foods such as red meat, high-cholesterol seafood, dairy, saturated fats and fried foods

For drinks

Eating very sweet, caffeine and, above all, alcoholic beverages should be avoided

If these issues are met, kidney stones can be prevented in many cases
