Family history of kidney stones can increase the risk of stone formation. Thus, it is necessary that people with family history of formation of stones in kidneys get themselves checked in every 6 months.
Complications of Kidney Stones :
In addition to causing severe pain, untreated kidney stones can eventually cause kidney failure by damaging the nephrons present in the kidney. This is called Chronic Kidney Failure or Chronic Renal Failure.
As the kidneys lose their ability to function, a patient is left with the only choice of dialysis or kidney transplantation.
In system of Unani, kidney stones are managed through
diuretics and Herbal formulations that is very effective in getting the kidney stones out of the system by breaking down and dissolving them. We also provide treatment for Hydro nephrosis, a condition that occurs when the kidney swells due to the failure of normal drainage of urine from the kidney to the bladder. Our treatment not only focuses on draining the water out of the kidneys through urine but also on treating the underlying causes and restore the kidney balance.
Kidney stones are known to cause excruciating pain when they are accumulated and moves around within the kidney or ureter. A patient may have symptoms like,
– Pain in the side and back
– Pain and burning sensation on urination
– Cloudy or foul smelling urine
– Persistent need to urinate
– Some people may also experience symptoms like nausea, vomiting, fever, and pink, red or brown urine due to the presence of blood in the urine.
Who are more likely to develop Kidney Stones :
Why some people are more disposed to the formation of kidney stones is not clearly understood. Though a few factors have been known to be commonly correlated with the incidence of these. The greatest factor that increases the risk of kidney stones is less intake of water. Those people who are in the habit of drinking less than 1 litre of water per day are more likely to develop kidney stones. Eating a diet that is high in protein, sodium, and sugar can also be one of the factors responsible for stone formation. Other risk factors include obesity and drinking water that is high in oxalate, uric acid, phosphate, sodium, and calcium. It is known that people who develop kidney stones once stand a high chance of developing it again in the future.
