kidney-stones

Avatar m tn I am a sufferer of chronic Calcium Oxalate kidney stones. I had my first one when I was 13 years old. At that time they did many tests and I have heard all kinds of reasons as to why they thought a 13 year old would have, not one, but many kidney stones. Most of these reasons were the obvious - diet: soda was the big thing they said was causing my stones. I of course quit drinking soda and of course kept getting stones.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor, As per the instruction of a doctor i have examined my daughter's (1 year Old) urine and CALCIUM OXALATE CRYSTALS PRESENT in the urine exam result. what will be the reason for this. I have kidney stone. But why this kind getting the crystal. what is the solution. is there any medicine to clear this problem.
168348 tn?1379360675 I have a condition called MSK (Medullary Sponge Kidney) that predisposes me to producing calcium oxalate or calcium oxalate/phosphorous stones. I avoid all oxalate containing foods and don't take any extra calcium supplements or antacids containing calcium Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hi. I have calcium oxalate stones. I know chocolate, tea, greens like salad & many veggies can contribute. You need a Nephrologist to do a workup. 24 hour urines can answer why the stones are forming. It could be something your born with, hypercalcuria and so many more. Good luck...
Avatar f tn The type of kidney stones I have are calcium oxalate. I am taking calcium supplements. I don't drink milk because it upsets my stomach.
1611319 tn?1378621999 Hi, I have had many calcium oxalate kidney stones and my para's are ok after repeated tests. Crystals can be the pre-cursor, as I understand, to calcium oxalate stones OR they can be small pieces that have broken off an actual stone. If your para's aren't working right you may be producing too much calcium and stones can form. Not sure on the Low D except to be sure they treat you with supplements if they agree. Mine was very low and felt better with supplemental D.
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 n tn calcium oxalate stones, struvite stones, uric acid stones or cystine stones. Potassium citrate is used for the treatment of stones. I would suggest you to get an evaluation done from a urologist to determine the type of stone. Treatment modes include Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithrotripsy (ESWL), uteroscopic stone removal and percutaneoud nephrolithotomy. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn As per ultrasound report there is a minor hydronophrosis in the right kidney. Are there any more stones left in the kidney but not seen in the ultrasound? or there is any other reason of this pressure and dull pain?
Avatar n tn Bladder stones can also be formed with the calcium oxalate crystals; however, kidney stones are more likely. If the stone is blocking some part of the outlet of the kidney or the ureter, it will cause obstruction and backflow of urine. The pressure effects of such obstruction will cause significant damage to the kidney and this will be further complicated if there is an infection.
500419 tn?1220128343 As a a doctor myself I would suggest that you do follow your doctor's advice. Taking into consideration the fact that you are pregnant and that too in the early stages it is advisable to do so. At the very least you could discuss it with her and opt for the least expensive tests- an ultrasound and a urine examination. Meanwhile try to drink plenty of water to facilitate easy pasage of the stones. Hope you can work things out and continue to have a safe pregnancy.
Avatar n tn I threw up for 2 weeks until I finally went to the doc. They found a stone and did liptotrpsy to blast it. Once it passed the gi stuff went away. My doc told my the throwing up is not uncommon. Good Luck.
Avatar m tn but sometimes you get all cut up inside and the cramps go away but you are pretty sore inside for a few days afterwards after they pass thru and have done their litle exit dance ??? Cheryl (calcium oxalate stones .. currently they say I'm stone free!!!
895634 tn?1283992810 These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The stones take weeks or months to form. •Calcium stones are most common. They are more common in men between age 20-30. Calcium can combine with other substances, such as oxalate (the most common substance), phosphate, or carbonate to form the stone. Oxalate is present in certain foods such as spinach. It's also found in vitamin C supplements. Diseases of the small intestine increase your risk of these stones.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with kidney stones almost 3 years ago but I did not get them removed as my Dr told me they could not kill me or cause any life threatening diseases, but recentley I have noticed a little bit of stomach discomfort, I would like to say pain but it doesnt hurt , it kind of feels like something is there like gas, and my stomach gurgles a little bit and once in a while I will feel a little bit of a slight pinching pain in different spots over my belly , it feels like its through the b
Avatar n tn I am a 34-year-old female with a 15 year history of calcium oxalate kidney stones. I have passed at least 15, and according to a recent CT scan, I have at least 7 more (several in each kidney). For several years I have been fatigued and have had sleep issues, which I attributed to having children who didn't sleep through the night. I realized that sleep was an issue when they began sleeping through and I could not make it more than 4-5 hours.
Avatar f tn Although I have thyroid issues, my clacium is normal .. yet I produce calcium oxalate stones ... I wish I had some info to share, but am not sure how to answer your ? .. definitely get a good doctor and/or endocrinologist for a full workup. It can take a long time to get answers sometimes .. a good doc is half the battle I've found.

Avatar m tn calcium oxalate stones, struvite stones, uric acid stones or cystine stones. Potassium citrate is used for the treatment of stones. I would suggest you to get an evaluation done from a urologist to determine the type of stone. Treatment modes include Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithrotripsy (ESWL), uteroscopic stone removal and percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Since ESWL was not successful, the other two treatment options can be considered. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 21 year-old female who has passed 12 kidney stones in the past 2.5 years. Both of my grandfathers and one aunt from each side of my family have passed stones. I have seen several urologists and nephrologists, but the only response I get is that it runs in the family and I will have to deal with it. After much begging, my current nephrologist has run more test to check my pituatary thyroid.
Avatar f tn Hello, Kindey stones are of four types: calcium oxalate stones, struvite stones, uric acid stones or cystine stones. Potassium citrate is used for the treatment of stones.

Avatar f tn I just found out that my stones are comprised of calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate! Does anyone else here have 2 types of stones?? I was given no advice on diet from my doc he just said drink alot of water! Gee thanks lol.
533063 tn?1262369701 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.
Avatar f tn Last year around September I passed 3 kidney stones, a very horrible experience. Now I feel I may be getting another attack, but i really can't tell, the symptoms are different. Last time, I had found out i had blood in the urine, and a very bad low back pain, that didn't go away. When the doctor tested me he said it was my kidneys, they were not infected, i just had to pass some stones.
Avatar m tn Do either of you know what type of stones you make? Most with MSK are calcium oxalate .. that is what mine are.
Avatar n tn I honestly have no idea and I have never heard of using aloe vera for anything to do with kidney stones, certainly not anything to do with reducing the size of a kidney stone. If I may ask, how/where did you hear of this and how is aloe vera supposed to reduce the size of a kidney stone?
Avatar n tn Individuals with higher levels of oxalate in urine are predisposed to developing kidney stones made of calcium oxalate. Though no stones may have been seen, their passing could have been the reason for the trauma to your urethra and the subsequent strictures (narrowing that needed dilatation). Blood in urine is again an indication of kidney stones.
Avatar n tn I just had a blood test and again have +2 blood in the urnie. I also now have calcium oxalate crystals. Could the crystals cause blood in the urnie?
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 m tn he examined it and he said it's fine and told me to have a urinary test, blood sample, ultra sound to find out any problems in my kidney. ( i reminded him that i had a high calcium oxalate level so probably thats were he got his conclusion from). the thing is when i got home, my urge to urinate lessened to my surprise. why is that? i didn't take any medications and could it possibly be from the rectum examination? and is all this check up like the ultra sound necessary?
