After much begging, my current nephrologist has run more test to check my pituatary thyroid. Is this something that can lead to kidney stones or am I headed down another dead end trail? If this can lead to kidney stones is it something that can be helped? Any words of advice or wisdom are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tiffanielise This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/411127'>Kidney Stones, Elevated Serum Calcium . . . parathyroid?</a>.
Hello, Nephrolithiasis or stones in kidneys does not cause dizziness but if you are taking any drug for kidney stones, it can be responsible for the kidney stones. You need to consult a physician and get the other causes of dizziness like postural hypotension (blood pressure falling with change of position), internal ear problems and cervical spondylitis or compression of cervical spinal nerves ruled out.
I read that some hyperthyroid people have problems with kidney stones because of the calcium issues we have. Anyone have any info on this?? I ask because I just spent a very early morning in the Emergency Room to find out I have a 9 mm kidney stone that just won't pass.
I was just talking to a friend who mentioned to me that she knew someone who had suffered for many years w/ kidney stones and they determined that his thyroid wasn't functioning properly and they removed it; he hasn't had any problems since. My daughter's thyroid function is also be watched by our family doctor, but totally unrelated to the kidney stones. Who should I talk to about this possiblity and what would link them together?
The only correlation I've been able to find (because I developed stones and finally passed my last one February and am STONE FREE YIPPEE - had to get that one in there) is that if you have a Parathyroid issue which produced too much CALCIUM then you are predisposed to develop Calcium Oxalate stones. Have they ck'd your calcium and other minearls, etc. thru 24hr urine and/or bloodwork? It is essential with your history. I, too, had ovarian cysts when I was having hyper #'s vs.
As far as I know, these are the only treatments - http://www.mayoclinic.org/kidney-stones/treatment.htm "Watchful waiting About 85 percent of the time, kidney stones are small enough to pass during urination. This occurs usually within 72 hours of the start of symptoms. The best treatment for these small stones is to drink plenty of water (as much as 2 to 3 quarts per day), stay physically active and wait to pass the stone.
Basically I just want to know if hypothyroidism can cause kidney stones, because I'm scared that by focusing solely on treating my thyroid, I've been ignoring possible kidney disease, which I've read can be fatal and cause heart attacks (and I HAVE gotten really bad chest pains recently for apparently no reason) I just hate how badly my life has turned out... I was such a happy person before my life took a sudden turn for the worse a year ago...
- calcium oxalate struvite uric cystine The rarest form of kidney stones is Cystine stones. Cystinuria is an inherited condition that affects the amount of acid that is passed in the urine. Struvite stones are caused by recurrent kidney infections. Uric stones are caused when there is too much uric acid in the urine with rheumatic conditions like gout. Calcium oxalate stones can from with too much protein in the diet, too much calcium and Vitamin D and through dehydration.
Hi All, Have any of you experienced any connection between your thyroid and kidney and/or bladder issues? I have had kidney stones both times my thyroid went really out of whack...once when I was first diagnosed as being hyper and once when I went hypo after RAI. My doctor says there isn't any research indicating that kidney and thyroid problems are related, but I just don't buy the coincidence.
Have it tested when you have your next blood test. Kidney stones could mean too much calcium, and the Vitamin D could make this condition worse. Too much Vitamin D can also cause other kidney problems. Consult with your doctor and have him/her do a full blood panel.
Drink lots of warm water, and do kapalbhati pranayam for more than 20 minutes, twice a day. In a few weeks, the kidney stones will be flushed out. After the stones are out, let me know what other benefits you noticed, and I will suggest some techniques to stimulate the thyroid and parathyroid. Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute. Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second.
Found out I have kidney stones. Now suffering from kidney stones, mental confusion, lack of motivation (mild depression), heart palpitations, dizziness/faint feeling. My urine calcium is 416, my blood calcium is 10.2, and my PTH is 23. Wondering if I have hyperparathyroidism? My urologist put me on thiazide and wants me to watch sodium intake-I'm not a salt person anyway so this is easy. My blood pressure seems to be creeping up a bit as well. I would appreciate any help!

4 weeks ago I was diagnosed with kidney stones in the er, after a ct scan of my stomach. next day noticed pain across my shoulders, and some muscle weakness, esp. on right side. since then I believe I have passed the kidney stones. but still having a dull pain in lower left abdomin sometimes radiating to the right side, 1-2 out of 10 on pain threshold. and pain in my right shoulder sometimes radiating to the left shoulder, new symptom, muscle twitches on both sides lower stomach.
I had a Radioactive Iodine treatment 19 years ago which killed my thyroid, and I had been taking Levothyroxine ever since, until 9/09 when I had kidney stones and a bad kidney infection and was in the hospital in intensive care for a week and off all medication. Since then, my T3 and T4 levels have been all messed up and my Dr. has been trying every combination to get me balanced since then, but has not yet got my system right yet.
A cystoscopy/ureteroscopy may be needed in order to determine the exact location of the stones in your kidney. Also have your thyroid hormones levels checked to make sure they are not rising.
Hello, Kidney stones can be or are caused by too much calcium and lack of Magnesium> Since you are researching. I'd like to direct you to Search Magnesium and kidney stones.

It will help you understand your symptoms and have instructions what to take and how much,and you will be amazed at what problems lack of Mg can cause.
I have a kidney disease which causes me to pass several kidney stones a month. Not only do I have the pain when passing a stone but due to the disease have constant chronic pain even when not passing a stone. My pain specialist, nephrologist and primary physician have me taking 2-15mg MS Contin and 4-7.5/325mg Percocet daily along with up to 4-50mg Demerol when needed for more severe pain. I've been taking these medications for approximately 6 plus years.
Thanks for the reply. I will definitely mention the parathyroid when I have the ultrasound done on Friday. I've actually been to an endocrinologist, urologist and nephrologist and none of them can figure out why I've passed at least 12 kidney stones in the last 4 years and still have "numerous" stones in each kidney. Anytime I mention parathyroid, they all say that couldn't be it since my calcium is normal. I don't know how to get them to investigate it more thoroughly.
Does anyone know if there is a connection between autoimmne thyroid disease and kidney stones? I am really asking to receive assurance. Please don't scare me with scary stories!! Hope someone can help. Thanks. Ali.
I found out this year that they have always been kidney stones. I was sent to a urologist and told that I have multiple stones in BOTH kidneys. They want to do a 24-hour urine test, but since I keep getting stones, the test keeps getting put off. In the past two weeks, I've had 3 stones. Upon stone analysis, they found it is 100% calcium oxalate, which I've read is the most common stone type.
I am a poor water drinker which contributes to the formation of most kidney stones. I suggest that you have your stones analysed if you have not done that. I was told by 2 urologists that there is nothing that I can take or do that will change my situation. Both urologist told me the same as what yours said, my chronic back pain was not related to kidney stones. They were correct and I was diagnosed with other issues that was the cause of most of my chronic low back pain.
ovarin cyst, cervix cyst, stip of endomytreosis in uteris, polycystic left kidney and 2 kidney stones in right kidney. several uti's with blood and ecoli in urine. are these all related. The doctors are just treating the symptoms no biopsies have been done. Should I get a biopsy of any of these cysts?
I have been reading many message boards and feel am self educated about kidney stones by my own body. Each kidney stone is unique in severity of pain. The bigger ones don't always have bigger pain. The largest I have passed was5 ml. I just dont know what to do anymore. Im tired of passing them, tired of being in pain, tired of missing work and could be in danger of loosing my job. The painkillers are great , but takes a day or so to get back into functioning mode after taking them.
Hi, The most common cause of the same is stones in the kidney. To rule it out the simplest test is to get an ultrasound done and a more sensitive test is a CT scan. They are important to rule out the presence of any obstruction of the urinary tract. I hope that helps. Take care.
I just had uscans on thyoid today for hyper thyrod while in waiting room a man told me his son had para thryoid and had alot of kidney stones, I get kidney infections and VERY So rib by kidney every 6-8 weeks, What do you think? Will scan today detect para thyroid?
Scan showed a hernia, an enlarged spleen, and a 4mm kidney stone. The enlarged spleen is related to my thyroid most likely. I am trying to get an appointment with my doctor but my work schedule has made things complicated. Its now 5/24/14 and I have yet to pass a stone. I have no pain but I do feel mild pressure and discomfort that comes and goes. What should I look for and/or expect in the mean time?
