Blood in Urine
Cirrhosis of Liver
The formation of stones in the urinary system is a common disorder in many parts of the country. In fact, areas such as Rajasthan, Saurashtra etc., are called "stone-belts".
These stones are made up of the concentrate of substances usually found in urine. These are uric acid, phosphates, calcium, and oxalic acid. The size of the stones may vary from sand/gravel to the size of a bird's egg. These stones are made up of either calcium oxalate or phosphate. The phosphate varieties generally occur due to infections. Most of the stones, i.e., around 90% are composed of calcium as a principle ingredient.
In a majority of cases, there is no obvious reason why a kidney stone has developed, but there are a few cases in which the cause is clear. For instance, in patients affected with chronic gout, high levels of uric acid are found in the blood, so that the acid crystallises in the kidneys to form stones.
A kidney infection may cause cells to be shed from the kidney lining forming a focus around which a stone may develop.
People who live in hot climates and do not drink enough fluid/water may also end up with stones, because their urine becomes highly concentrated.
Sings & Symptoms
Some kidney stones produce no symptoms at all but are discovered during a routine check-up. These are known as 'silent' stones. If, however, a kidney stone gets into the urinary tract, and blocks off the flow of urine or starts some infection, it can cause intense pain, which demands emergency treatment.
The pain is first felt in the side and there after, in the groin and thighs. There will be a frequent desire to pass urine and painful and burning urination occurs. Nauseating sensation or vomitings and fever with chills also occur in some.
Silent stones need little or no treatment. Bigger stones are surgically removed.
However, small stones can be dissolved and passed out through urine by the administration of certain home remedies coupled with some Ayurvedic remedies.
Do's & Don'ts
Liquids/fluids should be taken in good quantity. Food which may irritate the urinary system and kidneys like alcohol, pickles, fish, chicken etc., should be avoided.
Other food items to be restricted are peas, soyabeans, beetroot, cauliflower, carrots, almonds and eggs.
