Many people nowadays are suffering from kidney stones as a result of their ignorance of a few factors that contribute to the formation of stones. The human kidney is one of the most vital and important organs in the body, and if it isn't taken care of properly, it can be dangerous.
A KIDNEY STONE is a stone that is found in the kidneys.
Kidney stones are mineral and acid salt deposits that clump together in concentrated urine. They may cause discomfort as they transit through the urinary tract, but they rarely cause long-term damage.
Furthermore, if your urine contains other crystal-forming components such as calcium, oxalate, and uric acid, kidney stones can form, and the moisture in your urine can dilute. Similarly, your urine may be devoid of ingredients that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.
KIDNEY STONES HAVE MANY SYMPTOMS.
1# Severe, acute pain in the facet and back, just beneath the ribs
2# Abdominal and groin pain
3# Pain that comes in waves and varies in strength
4# Urinating with pain or a burning sensation
These Symptoms Could Also Appear In You.
Urine can be pink, brown, or a combination of the three colors.
Urine that is cloudy or odors bad
Urinating regularly or in tiny amounts, or a constant desire to urinate
vomiting and nausea
If contamination is present, you may get a fever and chills.
If you didn't know, here are some things you should stay away from.
SODIUM CHLORIDE IN EXCESS IS HARMFUL (SALT)
Salt, The amount of calcium in your urine increases if you consume a lot of sodium, which is a component of salt. Any leftover oxalate in the kidneys "sticks" to calcium, forming stones.
An excessive salt-reduction diet raises urinary calcium, which increases the risk of kidney stones developing. A variety of studies have shown that reducing salt consumption reduces calcium excretion and reduces the risk of kidney stones recurrence.
ALCOHOL OVERUSE SHOULD BE AVOIDED.
Dehydration caused by drinking alcohol can also cause kidney stones to form. If you have kidney stones, drinking alcohol may cause them to move faster. This can contribute to kidney pain and make it worse. Small kidney stones can be treated by increasing your water intake, using medicine, or using natural therapies.
It's worth noting that, while excessive alcohol consumption may increase the risk of kidney stones, moderate consumption has been shown to reduce the risk. Beer, white wine, and pink wine, when consumed in moderation, have been shown to help reduce the risk of kidney stones.
AVOID EATING ANIMAL PROTEIN IN EXCESS.
Limit animal protein: Too much animal protein, such as pink meat, chicken, eggs, and shellfish, raises uric acid levels, which can lead to kidney stones. A high-protein diet also lowers urinary citrate levels, a molecule in urine that helps prevent the formation of kidney stones.
Please remember to keep social distance, wear face masks, and wash your hands frequently with sanitizer because prevention is better than cure.
