Due to a lack of knowledge about the causes that lead to kidney stones, many people nowadays are plagued by the condition.
One of the most important and crucial organs in the human body system, the kidney is susceptible to harm if it is not properly cared for.
Mineral and acid salt crystals form in the kidneys and stick together when exposed to highly concentrated urine. When passing through the urinary tract, they can be a bit unpleasant, but they rarely cause any lasting damage.
A third reason for kidney stones to form is when your urine includes more crystal-forming substances such as calcium, oxalate, and uric acid than the fluid in your urine is capable of diluting. Additionally, your urine may be low in substances that inhibit crystal formation, creating an excellent environment for kidney stones.
A high intake of these three items can increase your risk of developing a kidney stone, according to WebMD.
In the beginning, there was salt.
A high-sodium diet can produce kidney stones because it increases the amount of calcium excreted in the urine. Low-sodium diets have been found to be beneficial for persons who are prone to developing kidney stones. Sodium intake should not exceed 2,300 milligrams per day, according to current guidelines.
Kidney stones are more likely to form in those who consume a high salt diet, which boosts their urine calcium levels. According to a number of studies, reducing salt intake reduces calcium excretion and reduces the incidence of recurrent kidney stones.
2. The consumption of alcoholic beverages.
A lack of hydration might lead to kidney stones as a result of drinking. You should avoid consuming alcohol if you have already developed kidney stones. This can exacerbate and exacerbate the pain in the kidneys. Increasing your water intake, taking prescription, or adopting natural therapies are all effective ways to cure small kidney stones.
Drinking too much alcohol has been shown to raise the likelihood of kidney stones, although drinking in moderation seems to minimize that risk. Beer, white wine, and red wine have all been shown to help prevent kidney stone formation when drank in moderation.
Three. Animal food.
Urinary acid levels are increased when a person eats a lot of red meat, poultry, eggs, and shellfish, which are all sources of animal protein. Urinary citrate levels, a component in urine that helps prevent the formation of stones, are lowered by a high-protein diet
