Certain medications can put you at risk for kidney stones. Diuretics, for example, can increase your risk of developing kidney stones in some situations. Make sure to check with your doctor about all the medications you take.
Rare diseases such as renal tubular acidosis and cystinuria can increase your risk of kidney stones. More common disorders such as chronic urinary tract infections, gout, and hyperparathyroidism can also cause kidney stones.
Limited activity can cause your bones to release more calcium, putting you at risk for getting kidney stones. If you’re bedridden or very stationary for a long period of time, you’re at a bigger risk.
This next set of tips will talk about how kidney stones are diagnosed.
If your doctor suspects kidney stones, he may order an X-ray. An abdominal X-ray can show most kidney stones and can also help the doctor judge changes in the size of the stone over a period of time.
Some doctors use an ultrasound instead of X -rays. An ultrasound is safe, painless and noninvasive. The drawback is that it may miss smaller stones.
19. Intravenous Pyelography
An intravenous pyelography is done by injecting a contrast dye into a vein in your arm. A series of X-rays is then taken as the dye moves through your kidneys, ureters and bladder.
20. CT Scan
The CT scan has become pretty standard for evaluating kidney stones. It’s a fast test, can identify even the smallest stones, and doesn’t require contrast dye. The drawback is that it’s very expensive.
This next set of tips will discuss some of the treatment options available for people with kidney stones.
21. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is commonly used for treating kidney stones. It uses shock waves to break the stones into tiny pieces that are then passed in your urine. Patients who undergo ESWL usually require sedation or light anesthesia.
22. Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy
Sometimes ESWL isn’t effective, so your surgeon may need to remove your kidney stone through a small incision in your back using an instrument called a nephroscope. This is called a Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy.
23. Ureterscopic Stone Removal
An ureterscopic stone removal procedure is performed to remove a stone lodged in a ureter. During this procedure, a small instrument called an ureteroscope snags the stone. An ultrasound can also be put through the scope to shatter the stone.
24. Parathyroid Surgery
Some calcium stones are caused by overactive parathyroid glands, which are part of your thyroid gland. This causes excess calcium, thus resulting in kidney stones. A surgeon can perform parathyroid surgery, which stops the problem.
25. Neuropathic Treatment
Neuropathic treatment is a therapy that focuses on nutrition. Many people believe that proper nutrition lead to healthy kidney function and may discourage stone formation.
There are different medications for the four different types of kidney stones. This next set of tips will list some of the medications used to treat each kind.
26. Calcium Stones
If you’re prone to calcium stones, your doctor may prescribe a thiazide diuretic. If you have calcium stones because renal tubular acidosis, your doctor may put you on sodium or potassium bicarbonate.
27. Struvite Stones
Since sturvite stones are caused by bacteria in the urine, antibiotics are used to cure and prevent them. Your doctor may suggest long-term use of antibiotics in small doses to prevent any future kidney stones.Other Details
