Our kidneys suffer from a disorder known as kidney stones. Hard masses are formed within the kidney or the urinary tract. The stones vary in sizes. Some stones are so tiny that they can’t even be seen by our naked eyes. The slightly bigger stones sometimes are an inch in diameter. The renal pelvis and tubes can be blocked completely by big kidney stones.
With four types of kidney stones, it is likely that you maybe affected by one of the types. Calcium, cystine, struvite and uric acid are the varieties of kidney stones, which affect our renal organs. Calcium is the most common form of stones to be found. Your everyday food intake consists of a lot of calcium and oxalate. Tea, pepper, rhubarb, nuts, cacao and spinach are food very high in oxalate.
Cystine is the least common variety of stones. This doesn’t form from foods but is caused by hereditary disorder. An excessive excretion of a certain type of amino acid is the reason for the formation of this type of stone.
Ammonium, Magnesium and Phosphate form a mixture that causes kidney stones. They have another name and are known as infection stones. They form in urine, which is infected.
Protein metabolism has a by-product, uric acid, which too forms stones and is often caused due to excessively high intake of proteins. Extremely acidic urine has stones in it.
