Balance7 CEO Dr. Nooristani Announces New Blog Post: Kidney Stones and How to Avoid Them
Kidney stones will wake you up with very severe back (flank) pain that will often radiate to the abdomen and especially to the groin, testicles and lips. It is often sharp and stabbing in nature. It can also be colic, and the pain is often associated with nausea and vomiting. If an infection is the cause, you will have a fever and chills, the pain will worsen and sometimes migrate within 30-90 minutes. The pain is positional and sometimes people get relief from it by being in the fetal position in bed. Kidney stones have several stages of pain that last from 30 minutes to several days if not treated appropriately. And finally, if you see blood in your urine don’t panic, it’s very common.
The good news is that about 80-90% of kidney stones go away on their own. About 3% of patients require hospitalization due to pain, inability to pass stones, or hydration. If the stone is large, it will require surgical removal. Hydration is the key to successful treatment of all kidney stones. Kidney stones are linked to decreased urine volume or increased excretion of stone-forming components such as calcium, oxalate, uric acid, cystine, xanthine, and phosphate.
