Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones dehydration


Avatar f tn definitely could be stones. i had 1 and mu hubby had them 2x.
Avatar f tn I was given IV fluids, urine tests done, bloods work, and ultrasound due to high risk of kidney stones. They also decided to give me steroid injections since I was 27 weeks at time I was admitted.
Avatar n tn southern areas have a warmer climate and as such people tend to get dehydrated more often than in the northern areas in the country. dehydration can cause an increase in kidney stones. "The most common cause of kidney stones is not drinking enough water. " http://www.webmd.
Avatar f tn It depends on what type of kidney stones you have... if you have stones that are a calcium based mixture (calcuim-oxalate for instance) then you should never take a calcium supplement. You would want to increase calcium in your diet through dairy products, etc. but calcium supplements are a definite no-no as they don't break down in your system the way the calcium in food does. If you have any other type of stone such as uric or struvite, etc.
Avatar f tn the stones so they can analyze them) is the constituents of the stones. I believe a common kidney stone is made up of calcium oxylate. If your stone has some other makeup, it can be telling as to the cause of your condition. The majority of mine was not calcium oxylate, but the "lead" that gave the docs turned out to be a dead end, so I guess all my efforts to catch that little bugger were for naught. Ah well, at least I got to see my foe!! Sigh.
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.
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, Kidney stones may be due to dehydration, diet, chronic stress, genetics, and even cadmium poisoning.If one parent had kidney stones, there is an increased risk in his or her children.Kidney stones tend to be recurring, typically reforming within seven years.In serious cases of kidney stones an ultrasound that breaks down the stones may be advised. I hope this helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn - 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.
Avatar n tn I did have poor kidney function before having Dr. Wolf's procedure. After having it my GFR rating went up 20 pts. If you want to pm me your e-mail address I can send the pdf of the procedure to you for your doctor. Dr. Wolf would most likely be willing to talk to him as well. I do struggle in the heat. We lived in Fla without air but HAD to put in a wall unit here now IN MO because my kidneys could no longer handle the heat etc.!
Avatar n tn I suffer from what is called Polycystic Kidney Disease (google it) which causes chronic kidney stones. Many people have this disease with no signs until they are much olde. When their kidneys begin to fail them. Diarrhea is related because when the stone is stuck in the ureter ( the tube leading down to your bladder from your kidney) this sends a message to your entire digestive tract to stop.

452063 tn?1324078516 I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
Avatar m tn I spent the next couple of months having those attacks less frequent with a healthy diet and proper exercise of running. One month ago I had severe pain radiating from my kidneys. I have had kidney stones and cysts in the past so I immediately went to a high water/cranberry juice intake. I took a urine test at the doctor and it showed that there was hematuria. At work my legs started to hurt and go numb. The numbness went away and now I have muscle twinges. I also have constipation.
Avatar n tn kidney stones develop by dehydration, weight loss, exercise and diet, if they are not treated they can grow and just cause more and more pain if you dont get them treated the pain may go away but it will come back believe me i have had them myself and the treatment is absolutly nothing well worth having it doent hurt its just lazer treatment which sounds scary but isnt its just like someone is tapping in the same spot repeadedly for about an hour and thats it.
1088689 tn?1258177291 I know exactly what you're going through...I have a history of kidney stones and UTI (with pregnancy and without) and I went in for blood in my urine and back pain...and they said that my urine was clear (no infection) and everything else looked fine..but that because of the blood they prescribed macrobid as a preventative. I did NOT take it, and I think I should have.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had kidney stones w/o having blood in urine? My daughter had stones in Feb. Has had other problems since. Still following up on all of that with dr. The last several days she has had severe abdominal pain again on/off. Went to dr yesterday just for a urine ck, no blood they said. She was fine for the rest of the day. Then in the night woke up with terrible pain. I had to give her pain meds from when she had the stones before. Any advice is appreciated... Thanks.
161427 tn?1229914882 The kidney stones were there already. I have Crohn's (Colitis), so, my body doesn't absorb Calcium,so, I develope kidney stones all the time. I usualy have a stent placed in my kidney(not fun at all). I had it replaced three times during my first pregnancy. This time I was lucky, it did come out with the help of IV fluid they gave while I was in the hospital.
393165 tn?1420764045 had intense cramping pain in side that wouldnt let up no matter what, outcome was kidney stones on opposite side??? puzzling as I have a kidney cyst on other side. Have been having kidney infections for past two months and no antibiotics work. Anyhow, Had a CT Scan, an Exray, injections in both side of my behind lol and a drip of fluid for dehydration, about 14 bags over 5 days or more!
Avatar f tn Indeed, some medications may contribute to the formation of kidney stones. However, other risk factors such as dehydration, certain diet, obesity, digestive conditions, history of surgery, family history, urinary tract infection may also be significant. Natural birth control methods such as rhythm or calendar method, basal temperature and cervical types may be considered. It is best that you talk to your doctor about this for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Has anyone here with kidney stones tried vitamin B6 and magnesium to prevent new stones from forming? I read a study that concluded that taking 50 mg of B6 daily with 300 mg of magnesium oxide (one of the least absorbable forms of magnesium) will prevent future kidney stones. I also read that potassium and B6 does the same. Perhaps the magnesium works because potassium is better absorbed if there is sufficient magnesium.
Avatar m tn It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
Avatar m tn I have been passing stones faster since I started jogging, but also producing more stones. Dehydration is bad, bad, bad, so if a person weighs less after a run than at the start, running is probably not a good idea.
443757 tn?1217554790 The riba is known to be rough on your kidneys. Caffiene can cause kidney stones. Usually you have to drink it for many years, but the alkalines, inclusive of all forms od speed, have an irritating effect and change PH making stones more formable. Also your genetics and cholesterol levels determine if and when you will get stones and how resislient your kidneys are, so at any age there is risk to certain people, and certainly to those on Riba therapy.
Avatar f tn Should some of these enter the blood stream, the ONLY other organ that comes to the rescue is the kidney, that constantly filters the blood and this explains the dehydration, as the kidney now is working overtime filtering out the toxins using extra water. Water is the best detoxifying agent! Also another function of the kidneys is water regulation. When chronic conditions cause the kidney to overwork, kidney dysfunction is inevitable.
387767 tn?1345875627 Be sure to discuss all recommended vaccines with your veterinarian. A cat with kidney disease or kidney failure should not be vaccinated at all. Long-term feeding of an all-dry-food diet is also suspected as a factor in Chronic Renal Failure. Cats' kidneys are highly efficient and adapted to life in the desert, where they would get most or all of their water from eating their prey.
Avatar m tn These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is dehydration. Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common.
Avatar n tn These patients suffer from debilitating abdominal pain which is often worsened by certain foods. Kidney stones and IBS are linked by dehydration. Meaning, that the frequent loose bowel movements leads to dehydration which can thus trigger a kidney stone to form. Other diseases of the bowel can also lead to kidney stones.
Avatar f tn I was always told how uncommon it was for a girl my age (first stones were at age 19,I am now 27) to have kidney stones and also plus because I am a woman and women don't tend to get them. I was never ever offered any help even after asking for advice from many doctors on what should I do?? I have had kidney stones at least 3-4 Times a year. But this past month I have passed 10 stones so far and counting. Each time at the ER I am prescribed pain meds and anti nausea pills and sent home.
Avatar m tn have your doctor do some blood work to make sure that it's not a kidney problem. They usually show up in blood work. Also dehydration can cause kidney problems. and if your kidneys hurt is' the lower back where it's going to show. Figure out how much water you drink in a day (vs. when you have a beer etc.) and any other medical conditions you might have. (And dude, you are 26 years old, what is up with you typing like a 12 year old??
