All of us have heard of kidney stones. Some may have them, some may not. They are very painful for anyone. No one should have these. Kidney stones are not formed in a day, it is a result of years of accumulation of wastes which are not eliminated by the body entirely. The question arises in the minds of many, kidney stones! How are they formed?
Kidney stones form when the urine contains more crystal forming substances- such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid, then the fluid in the urine can dilute. At the same time, urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form. Kidney stones or renal calculi are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside the kidneys. Kidney stones can affect any part of the urinary tract- from the kidneys to the bladder. Kidney stones result in UTI (urinary tract infection) which are really painful to everyone.
Medicines are available for the same in form of syrups and tablets. Ayurvedic syrups for kidney stones are really helpful in dismissing kidney stones. Before knowing about medications, it is essential to know the causes of kidney stones. Diet, excess body weight, some medical conditions, certain supplements are among the many causes of renal calculi. These stones do not cause any permanent damage if recognised timely. Passing kidney stones can be very painful. The stones do not cause any harm or pain unless they are passed from kidney to the ureters. If they are in the ureters then they can disrupt the flow of urine and cause the kidney to swell as well the ureter to spasm, which can be very painful.
