Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are kidney stones?

Our urinary system consists of kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder and urethra. The kidneys are vital organs that filter the blood, remove waste products and excessive fluid from the body. The waste products and fluid left after filtering blood is collectively referred to as urine. The urine, after being formed in the kidneys, passes through the narrow tubes called ureters. The urine gets collected in the urinary bladder which is voided via the urethra. The solid mineral deposits that get formed in kidneys or urinary bladder are referred to as kidney stones.

2. What are the various types of kidney stones?

There are mainly five types of kidney stones. These include uric acid stones, calcium stones (mainly calcium oxalate stones and sometimes calcium phosphate), struvite stones (mainly form in persons with urinary tract infection), staghorn stones (struvite stones, when they get enlarged, are referred to as staghorn stones) and cystine stones (these run in families with tendency to pass too much cystine in urine – cystinuria).

3. What makes a person prone to kidney stones?

There are many risk factors that predispose a person to kidney stone formation. These are:

  •  High protein, calcium or oxalate intake in diet
  •  Low water intake
  •  Urinary tract infections
  •  Obesity
  • Family history of kidney stones
  • Cystinuria

4. How do kidney stones form?

Kidney stones form when the level of crystal-forming  substances such as calcium, uric acid, or oxalate rises in urine. At the same time, the level of substances that prevent these crystals from sticking together falls. Both of these factors together play a role in kidney stone formation.

5. Do all kidney stones cause intense pain?

Kidney stones that are small size may show no symptom at all and may lie dormant in the kidneys. In such cases, they usually get accidently revealed in ultrasounds done for some other purpose. However, stones that are large in size cause intense pain. Pain from small stones may also arise when they are trying to pass the pelviureteric junction or ureterovesical junction. The pain may be felt in the kidney region or in the flank area. Other attending symptoms are frequent urine, pain on passing urine, burning urination, scanty urine, blood in urine and nausea or vomiting.

6. What else does pain tell us about position of stones?

We know that kidney stones that are small lie dormant in the kidney and cause no pain. Pain arises when the stones are large and block urine flow. However, pain also arises, in case of both small and large stones, when they are trying to enter the ureter from kidney or enter the urinary bladder from the ureter.

7. Which tests does the diagnosis involve?

The tests to confirm kidney stones include ultrasound, X-ray KUB i.e. kidney ureter bladder, intravenous pyelogram and CT scan of KUB. In addition to this, renal function test also needs to be done.

8. Can kidney stones lead to complications, damaged kidney?

The pain from kidney stones is usually so intense that the person seeks immediate medical aid. There are usually no complications in such cases. However, complications may arise in case of a person who, unaware of kidney stones lying dormant for long periods of time without causing any discomfort or pain, does not approach a doctor. In such cases, due to persistent and severe obstruction of urine flow, there are chances of kidney damage.

9. What is renal colic?

The pain caused by kidney stones is known as renal colic. This pain is very intense and may be felt in the mid-back or flank area. The patient does not find any position comfortable when in acute renal pain due to severity of the pain.

10. Can natural medicines treat kidney stone located at junctions of the renal system?

There are two junctions in the renal system The pelviureteric junction (PUJ) and the ureterovesical junction (UVJ). The PUJ junction is present at the renal pelvis and ureter. The UVJ refers to the junction of the ureter and urinary bladder. These medicines can treat kidney stones at both PUJ and UVJ junction when the stones are small in size and not linked with acute retention of urine or severe hydronephrosis.

11. My USG shows multiple small kidney stones, the largest 6mm. Can Homeopathy dissolve them?

Yes, Homeopathy can definitely dissolve the stones in your case. Kidney stones of up to 8mm to 9mm have good scope of treatment with these medicines. This does not, however, mean that Homeopathy will not work on stones of a larger size. They will, but in such cases, Homeopathy can only be started after making sure that the renal function tests are normal and there is no acute urinary retention.

12. My urologist has advised surgery for kidney stones. Can it be avoided with Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is very effective in treating kidney stones. In several cases, surgery can be avoided. To what extent medicine can help depends upon the size and location of the kidney stone. In case of acute retention of urine or severe hydronephrosis from kidney stone, the urgency of treatment demands that allopathic medicines be used as a first step.

13. Can high uric acid cause kidney stones?

Yes, there are chances of kidney stone formation in persons with high uric acid levels.

14. I have recurrent kidney stones. Does Homeopathy have a permanent solution?

Yes, Homeopathy can completely cure this tendency towards recurrent kidney stones. Natural medicines, along with proper diet management, yield positive long-term results. In such cases, these medicines are selected after an in-depth analysis and study of symptoms involved.

15. Can natural medicines offer help in acute renal colic?

Yes, natural medicines offer help in acute renal colic, but only if there is no urine retention. Renal colic with acute urine retention is an emergency scenario. In such cases, immediate allopathic help must be sought.
