Kidney stones, which are also called renal calculi, nephrolithiasis or urolithiasis, are hard deposits that form from minerals and salts inside your kidneys.
Kidney stones can form anywhere in your urinary tract, from your kidneys to your bladder. Oftentimes, stones form when urine becomes concentrated and allows minerals to crystallize and stick together. They are formed when there is an excess of certain substances, such as calcium or oxalate, in the urine.
Infections like UTIs
Certain medications like diuretics or calcium based medicines.
Treatment for kidney stones may include medications to help dissolve the stones, as well as procedures such as lithotripsy or surgery to remove the stones. Drinking plenty of fluids and making dietary changes, such as reducing the intake of calcium and oxalate, may also help prevent the formation of kidney stones.
