What are urinary stones?

The stones that form in the urinary system are known as urinary stones. Stones can form when urine is highly concentrated with components like calcium, oxalate, and phosphorus. A stone can either stay in the kidney or migrate through the urinary system. Kidney stones come in a variety of sizes. A little stone may pass on its own with little or no discomfort. On the other hand, a bigger stone may become lodged in the urinary system and restrict the flow of urine, causing significant pain and bleeding. Stones can form everywhere in the urinary tract, from the kidneys to the bladder and urethra, although the kidney and ureter are the most prevalent sites.

What are the symptoms of urinary stones?

The symptoms of urinary stones usually begin when the stone starts moving around or into the urethra. Some of the common symptoms of urinary stones are:

  • Severe and intense pain below the ribs at the side and back
  • Sharp lower abdominal pain
  • Fluctuating intense pain
  • Burning sensation or pain while urinating
  • Cloudy or dark-colored (pink, red, brown) urine
  • Foul-smelling urine
  • A frequent sensation of urinating
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Fever and chills

What causes urinary stones?

Urinary stones occur when your urine contains more crystal-forming components than the fluid in your urine can dilute, such as calcium, oxalate, and uric acid. So, low fluid intake can lead to urinary stones. At the same time, your urine may be deficient in chemicals that prevent crystals from adhering together, allowing kidney stones to develop, leading to urinary stones.

Family history is also a risk factor in the case of urinary stones. The high amount of protein, salt, and sugar in your diet can also increase the chances of urinary stones.

What are the diagnostic methods?

  • Blood tests: Blood tests helps to find the excessive amount of calcium or uric acid in your system. Blood test results can help your doctor monitor the health of your kidneys and may prompt them to look for other medical issues.
  • Urine analysis: The 24-hour urine collection helps to reveal if you're excreting too many or too few stone-forming minerals.
  • Imaging: Urinary tract imaging testing reveals kidney stones. It helps the doctors to assess the size and severity of the stones.

What are the treatment options?

Small urinary stones can be eliminated by drinking water and taking pain relievers or medications to help pass your kidney stone. But if your kidney stone is large, your doctor may suggest surgery or other techniques to break the stones.

Your doctor might also suggest you change your diet or lifestyle to prevent cases of urinary stones in the future.
