Understanding Kidney Stones

When the urine contains crystal-forming substances like calcium, oxalate and uric acid and the fluid in the urine cannot dilute it, kidney stones are formed. The lack of substances that prevent crystals from sticking together results in the formation of kidney stones. Since kidney stones travel through the urinary system, they can also be found in the ureters and bladder.

How to prevent kidney stones from forming?

According to National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney Diseases suggestions, there are several ways to prevent kidney stones from forming. Here are a few common measures you can take:

  • Drink plenty of water- By drinking plenty of water (up to 12 glasses of water) every day, it will be easier for the body to flush out the substances that form the kidney stones.
