Due to a lack of knowledge about the factors that lead to kidney stones, many people today are plagued by the condition.
One of the most important and vital organs in the human body system, the kidney is susceptible to damage 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. However, they rarely cause long-term damage when they move through the urinary tract.
When the crystal-forming chemicals calcium, oxalate, and uric acid in your urine are present in greater concentrations than the fluid in your urine can dilute, kidney stones can form. Kidney stones are more likely to form when your urine is deficient in chemicals that prevent crystals from forming.
A high intake of these three items can increase your risk of developing a kidney stone, according to WebMD.
A high-sodium diet can cause kidney stones because it increases the amount of calcium in your urine. A low-sodium diet is recommended for people who are prone to kidney stones. Sodium intake should not exceed 2,300 mg per day, according to current guidelines.
A high salt diet increases the amount of calcium in the urine, which is the primary component of kidney stones, increasing the risk of their formation. Lower salt consumption has been found to reduce calcium excretion and the risk of recurrent kidney stones in several studies.
Kidney stones can form as a result of dehydration from excessive drinking. Drinking alcohol may speed up the movement of kidney stones if you already have them. This can exacerbate and exacerbate the pain in the kidneys. Increasing your water intake, taking medicine, or using natural therapies are all effective ways to treat small kidney stones.
Drinking too much alcohol has been shown to increase the likelihood of kidney stones, whereas drinking in moderation seems to minimize that risk. Beverage consumption in moderation has been shown to reduce the risk of developing kidney stones.
3. Animal protein.
Limit your intake of animal protein to reduce your risk of developing kidney stones, which can be caused by eating too much red meat, poultry, eggs, and seafood. A molecule in urine called citrate, which aids in the prevention of kidney stone formation, is decreased in urine by a high-protein diet.
