Kidney Stones: Natural cures

  Kidney Stones:   The incidence of nephrolithiasis is rising worldwide, especially in women and with increasing age. Kidney stones are associated with chronic kidney disease. About 80 percent of all stones are calcium oxalate stones. High blood calcium levels lead to hypercalciuria excessive absorption of calcium from the intestine which increases the level of calcium from the urine. High blood calcium levels can also result from malfunctioning parathyroid, vitamins D intoxication and multiple myeloma.   Preventing recurrence is largely specific to the type of stone such as calcium oxalate, calcium phosphate, cystine, struvite magnesium ammonium phosphate, and uric acid stones. However, even when the stone cannot be retrieved, urine pH and 24-hour urine assessment provide information about stone forming factors that can guide prevention. Medications, such as protease inhibitors, antibiotics, and some diuretics, increase the risk of some types of kidney stones
