Renal or Kidney stones are also known as renal calculi, nephrolithiasis, or urolithiasis. These hard crystalline deposits are made from minerals and salts that usually form inside your kidneys. Sometimes the urine becomes concentrated to make minerals and salts easily bind together to form stones. As per the chemical composition, kidney stones are of different types that can block and damage any portion of the urinary tract from the kidney to the bladder. It is very painful when passing kidney stones through the urinary system, but if these stones are detected in good time, severe or permanent kidney damage can be avoided.
Causes of Kidney Stone
Several variables may increase your risk of kidney stones, such as diet, excess body weight, certain medical conditions, medications, and health supplements. The formation of kidney stones begins when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances such as calcium, oxalate, phosphate, and uric acid. At the same time, the lack of crystal-preventive substances in the urine creates an ideal environment for the formation of kidney stones. Therefore, knowing the type of kidney stone can help you reduce the risk of more kidney stones.
Let’s dig into various types of Kidney Stones.
Types of Kidney Stone
Types of kidney stones are mainly dependent on the chemical nature of the crystals produced in the urine.
Calcium oxalate stones
This is the most common type of calcium stone produced in the kidney. Oxalate is a substance that is produced daily by the liver or absorbed directly into the body from the diet, certain fruits, nuts, chocolate, and vegetables with high oxalate content. In addition to these dietary factors, high doses of vitamin D, intestinal bypass surgery and several metabolic disorders can contribute to the high concentration of calcium or oxalate in the urine.
Calcium phosphate is another type of calcium stone that exists in the urinary system. This type of kidney stone is more commonly formed due to metabolic conditions, such as renal tubular acidosis.
Uric acid stones
The uric acid stone forms in red or orange in color, as uric acid crystals are produced from by-products of hemoglobin breakdown with red-orange pigments. Uric acid Stones may develop with too much fluid loss in individuals with chronic diarrhea or malabsorption, those who consume high protein diets, and those with diabetes or chronic metabolic disorders. Several genetic factors may also increase the risk of developing uric acid stones.
Sometimes soil bacteria may get an entry into the urinary system to produce struvite stones. Soil bacteria can mainly become part of our bacterial population if we eat uncooked food. No matter how skillfully a practitioner uses an instrument to put in the bladder, soil bacteria in our body can likely find a way into the urinary system, particularly in women whose short urethra facilitates bacterial entry.
Soil bacteria can easily develop antibiotic resistance and even infect calcium stones. These infected stones may grow rapidly and become very large, often with few symptoms or weak warnings. Soil bacteria can, therefore, damage the kidneys and even go into the bloodstream to cause sepsis.
Cystine stones are formed in a lemon-yellow color with a sugary coating in the urinary system. These stones are commonly seen in people with a genetic disorder called cystinuria that contributes to the excretion of too much amino acid in the kidneys known as Cysteine. Cystine crystals can obstruct the ends of the renal tubules, causing its cell damage. This is why effective treatment, along with very large amounts of fluid, often requires for the dilution of urine as well as for the dissolution of Cystine Stone.
Kidney Stone Treatment in Allopathy
Depending on your condition, an allopathic doctor may prescribe you nothing more than taking pain medicine and drinking plenty of water to pass through a kidney stone. In some cases, stones get clogged into the urinary tract to cause urinary tract infection or serious urinary complications. In this situation, surgery may be the only option left for the stone treatment.
