Hard deposits made up of salts and minerals which get formed inside your kidneys are called kidney stones.
Causes of Kidney stones:
Although there is no single cause for kidney stones, they are mostly caused when urine contains more crystal-forming substances such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid than the urine can dilute.
Types of kidney stones
4 types of kidney stone are:
- Calcium Stones
Most of the kidney stones are made from calcium oxalate. This is due to dietary factors such as high consumption of food rich in calcium oxalate. Fruits, vegetables, chocolate, and nuts as well are rich in them.
- Struvite Stones
These stones get formed in response to an infection like the urinary tract infection.
- Uric Acid Stones
These can be formed in people who don’t consume enough fluids, those who lose a lot of fluid, those who consume a high protein diet, and those who have gout.
- Cystine Stones
These are caused by people who are suffering from a hereditary disorder which forces the kidney to release too much of a certain amino acid called cystinuria.
