Kidney stones mostly consist of a compound known as calcium oxalate. Kidney stones arise due to the accumulation of soluble minerals salts on the inner wall of the kidneys. These mineral deposits grow to big size like a golf ball and maintain a crystalline structure.
Sometimes these kidney stones are small and may be passed out through the urinary tract unnoticed. However, they may also be accompanied by extreme pain while exiting. Yes, the pain can be that excruciating that most would rather they have an operation than be subjected to such harrowing experience.
Nevertheless, the kidney stones that remain in the body unattended to may cause health conditions such as severe pain and ureter blockage that blocks the path used by urine in leaving the body. In fact, such Kidney stones have also been found to have a significant influence in the development of chronic kidney diseases.
Anyway, below are the causes of kidney stones.
Lack of sufficient water in the body is the most prominent cause of kidney stones. Research has shown that people who drink water less than the recommended amount mostly suffer from kidney stones.
When there is no adequate water for dilution of the uric acid, the level of pH in the kidneys decreases hence becoming more acidic. This acidic environment offers a suitable environment for the formation of kidney stones.
Some health conditions have a significant influence in the development of kidney stones. These health conditions include urinary tract infections, hyperparathyroidism, renal tubular acidosis, Crown’s disease and Dents disease.
Medical analysts have also recently said that water fluoridation might be responsible for some situations of kidney stones. However, they are yet to prove this.
