  • What causes a Kidney stone?

    A friend of mine has one, she said coffee & tea can cause one, is that true?

    I looked up wiki, but not much help.

                      i think it has something to do with how your body assimilates calcium or other minerals- usually bad diets seem to aggravate them. i think coffee and tea are old scapegoats- but mostly it has to do with being chronically dehydrated- which is certainly assisted by caffeinated beverages... you just have to have a high sodium diet already to crystallized the **************** in your kidneys.. but i ain't a doctor..

                        Ever mixed salt solutions in chemistry class ?
                        Often they'd form 2 new salts. And in some cases one will remain a solution and the other will become a solid and fall down to the bottom of the test tube.
                        So when you get 2 different salts in your bloodstream, this may occur. The kidneys filter the stuff out of your blood. You should pee it all out, but some of it might stay behind inside the kidney, and build up over time, creating pallets of salts, or stones if you will.
                        Passing one can be one of the most painfull things you can experience.
                        There are food supplements available that'll reduce this build-up in your kidneys, and may even prevent it all together.

                        I'm not a doctor either. But this is how I came to understand how it happens.

                          I have suffered from kidney stones for the last 20 years. I get them in the summer, and it is my understanding that it is mostly an individual trait....some folks get stones some don't.

                          For some it is so problematic they are on dissability, they get so many stones they cannot function. I have been lucky (knock on wood) I haven't had a stone episode in 2 years.

                          Very painful, in fact when I feel a stone moving....I go immietedly to the emergency room, I don't wait until I am doubled over in pain, and then the dilaudid

                          I have heard that controlling diet can help one to avoid stone formation, but that never worked for me, and all of the people I know who suffer from this problem are the same way, genetics.

                          One thing keep moving, this type of pain is made worse when you try and be still, take the pain pills they give you until the stone has passed and keep doing your normal routine as much as possible.

                            They hurt like hell. I thought I had a hernia at one time and it turned out to be a stone. And it is genetic trait.


                            Nothing says "happy 18th" like waking up in the emergency room.

                              A lot has to do with your body chemistry and how it excretes various minerals (particularly calcium and oxalic acid, but also phosphate, uric acid, and the amino acid cysteine). Some people are just "stone makers", and no matter how many times you remove them they make more.

                              Diet plays a role as well for some people (if you are predisposed to having stones you should avoid certain foods), and various metabolic disorders (hypercalcaemia, hyperuricaemia, cysteinuria, and renal tubular acidosis to name but a few) can cause stones, but for the vast majority of people no good reason is found.

                              If you have them once though you'll probably have them again.
