Kidney stones causes children

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones causes children


Avatar f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn the corresponding figure in children is unknown. Among patients with kidney stones, hypercalciuria may occur in 40-50%, and recurrent gross hematuria may occur in 10-20%. Although no evidence indicates that risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher in patients with medullary sponge kidney, up to 5% of males and 35% of females have a UTI.
Avatar f tn I know how you feel, although I haven't had spasms everyday, I have experienced them on occasion. It is worse than kidney stones. Undescribible pain!! It could be a number of things. Your kidney could be floating, you could have hydronephrosis, your renal artery could be obstructed and the blood supply is cut off intermittantly, and of coarse the old kidney stone is a possiblity. You really need some test done to see what is going on. I know how hard it is to find a good urologist.
3183592 tn?1344634338 I squirmed around trying to find any relief, but nothing I did made a difference. I had treated hundreds of patients with kidney stones, but now, I realized, I was the one who was about to wind up in the emergency room. My wife drove me to the hospital where I worked, and I greeted the ER director miserably letting him know that I thought I had a kidney stone.
193953 tn?1272078626 It will be stuck in the kidney and thats what causes the blood in the urine. The stone is stuck and rolls back and forth in the kidney when it fills with liquid and bruses the inside of your kidney. The tube from the kidney to the bladder isnt equipped to pass that large of a stone, either is the tube from the bladder to the outside of your body (urithia) (sp). A lypotripsy is when they use ultrasound and smash the stone into sand. The stent is so you pass the "sand" easily.
Avatar m tn It can also be due to other things like cystitis, and kidney stone or polyp in the bladder. You would feel the kidney stone but maybe it is a precursor to it coming through. So there are lots of reasons for blood in the urine. Do you actually see the blood in the urine or did the urinalysis show a few red blood cells. If a few red blood cells that isn't anything to worry about. If a large amount seen on the urinalysis, then it could be a problem.
Avatar f tn Have you had an IVP test? This is an x-ray with contrast, and is the best test for kidney stones.
Avatar f tn I am a 45 yr old woman who has had a bout of kidney stones once before. My father was also a sufferer of kidney stones. I can remember hearing him crying i the bathroom and then coming out with crystals in a tea strainer when I was a kid. I now fully understand what made him cry. Alomst two months ago I developed some back pain that kind of wrapped around my sides and under my right rib cage.
Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones and basicly try to eat right and all to advoid having them and only have been able to go see a doc about that when they do flare up about every 4 years at an ER. I have been searching online and this is the 1st place that anyone has even hinted at the 3 periods a month is "normal" for being in a menopausal stage.
Avatar f tn My daughter is a cosmetologist and she told me the topo causes the hair follicles to close. What has fallen out, wont grow back, but the hair loss should stop when you discontinue the drug. The Topo really messed up my cycle too. I think my adrenals took a hard hit from just two weeks on the drug. For me it was not worth it. I was stupid, depressed and started having panic attacks on it. I would loose blocks of time. Huge blocks.
661200 tn?1225486613 I have just returned from the vet and fund out this morning that my 12 year old Golden Retriever-Lab called Topaz has an enlarged heart and Kidney stones. Because of the heart condition the vet doesnt want to put him under general anesthesia for kidney stone surgery. I live in New Delhi and the resources are limited. However, I am doing the best I can and praying for a healthy and happy dog.
1963554 tn?1325451090 He said that his right kidney is destroyed and that his left kidney has about 25% left. He has a tumor within his bladder and his urine cannot pass thru which goes into his kidney and damages it. When we had Shaggy checked out in May our vet said that it's UTI...because I mentioned to him that he'd pee and then go to other spots and nothing comes out. So he was given anti-biotics. This went on for several months.
Avatar n tn Smoking certainly increases the risk of pancretic cancer, but there are more likely possibilities. Yes, gallstones and kidney stones are also possible. Given your description, I would suggest a right upper quadrant ultrasound to start, along with liver function tests. This is a pretty good workup for most gallbladder and liver diseases. If negative, a spiral CT scan without contrast can be considered to evaluate for kidney disease.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Higher than normal potassium is not very unusual in kidney disease, but it is important to discount other potential causes - including kidney or urinary tract stones. An ultra-sound and white blood cell (WBC) count will help identify if stones are a problem. Phosphorus is also too high. Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys.

Avatar n tn I am not aware of specific, non-obstructive, causes that can lead to an enlarged ureter. It is possible that lower-functioning kidney can lead to this condition as your urologist has hypothesized. If an infection is leading to the lower kidney function, then antibiotics would help. Before the ureter "bursts", it would likely be preceeded by significant pain and discomfort. You can discuss these scenarios with your personal physician, or in conjunction with another opinion.

Avatar n tn Hello, Recurrent urine infections could be due to various reasons. Most common cause is stones in kidney which is blocking urine pathway. Other causes are changing sexual partners frequently, pregnancy, diabetes and of course childhood infections. The urine can also be due to retention of urine anywhere in its flow due to obstruction. The obstruction can be due to abnormality of structures since birth, stones or diseases like tumors. Females are more prone to urine infections.
Avatar n tn Gross hematuria is most frequently observed with urinary tract infection (UTI), irritation of the meatus or perineum, trauma, nephrolithiasis (including hypercalciuria without stones), sickle cell disease/trait, post-infectious glomerulonephritis, and IgA nephropathy (the last two are types of kidney diseases).
1939607 tn?1324292900 Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen just below and to the left of navel can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, colitis, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions, polycystic ovary in females, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle. Since you do not have a lump or a tender hot spot, in all probability it is not a muscle.
Avatar f tn Before the first veins showed up, I had been exercising rather strenuously for a couple of months. I also have a history of high blood pressure and kidney stones. I am 34 and have three young children. Any ideas what might be causing this?
Avatar f tn he thought he was making funny jokes, I guess), I went to a urologist. The uro did a CT...turned out I had THREE stones in my kidney and a severe infection, which took over a month to kill. Turned out I also have MSK. Right now, I suffer in flare ups....I may suffer for months with chronic pain, but then be mostly pain free for a couple of months. I should also note that kidney stones can be scary....especially when they won't pass. When I had my CT, I had 3 stones....
Avatar f tn Hi, It is good that the scan has come out clear for any kidney stones. Causes can be divided according to the affected organ and they are Kidney conditions (infection, pyelonephritis, kidney stones, polycystic kidney disease), Bladder conditions (cystitis, bladder polyp, bladder tumor), Urethral conditions (Sexually transmitted diseases, urethral injury, vaginal inflammation), and certain bleeding disorders. It can be due to chronic UTI or vaginitis also.
Avatar f tn I have spent a lot of my adult like in pain, suffering from recurrent Kidney infections, I have had Kidney Stones twice and have been addmitted to hospital 5 times with infections. My duplex kidney is complete and I have 2 ureters from the left kidney into the bladder and this in itself causes a lot of my kidney infections. I also have an under-active thyriod, can anyone tell me if the hyperthyroidism is linked to the duplex kidney?????
Avatar n tn I battle kidney stones constantly and my left kidney (pelvic, duplex) is now deteriorating and has started to fail. Reading this forum has lead me to believe very strongly that all of these problems are definitely not random and most likely linked.
Avatar f tn The blood flow in the region basically backs up in the ovaries, the same way, or at lest it feel like it to me, urine back up in the kidney with a kidney stone stuck in the ureter, (I have lot of stones too). The blood flow usually decreases when we get off our feet and put them up. This is why it is often hard to diagnose. Most tests CAT, MRI etc are done laying down, so the blood flow decreases etc.
Avatar f tn We have actually found that the pain is link to several issues, inflammation in the kidney and stones moving around can irritate the kidneys. Welcome!!
