Other information on managing kidney stones

decreased urination
- Decreased urination is often caused by dehydration, but sometimes it may indicate serious disease.
blood in the urine
- Blood in the urine can be visible, or it may only be noticed when the urine is tested.
bladder outlet obstruction
- Bladder outlet obstruction is a condition in which the opening between the bladder and the urethra is partially or completely blocked. This allows only some urine, or sometimes none at all, to empty from the bladder.
chronic renal failure
- Creatinine is a waste product made by the body during regular metabolism. It is excreted into the urine by the kidneys. A serum creatinine test measures the level of creatinine in the blood.
creatinine clearance
- This is a test of kidney function. It determines the amount of fluid filtered each minute by the kidneys.
calcium in urine
- This test measures the amount of calcium in urine.
- This test measures the amount of creatinine in the urine. Creatinine is produced in the muscles and filtered by the kidneys. The amount of creatinine in the urine, then, is an indication of kidney function. It is most often used to check kidney function.

spinal cord injury
- Spinal cord trauma is an injury to the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the part of the nervous system that runs down from the brain through a canal in the spine. It sends signals between the nerves in the body, called the peripheral nerves, and the brain. Signals from sensations like pain or position are sent up the peripheral nerves from organs like skin and muscle. Commands to move the body are known as motor impulses. These impulses begin in the brain and travel down the spinal cord. They then travel through the peripheral nerves into tissues such as muscle to produce movement. When signals travel to or from the brain, they cross over to the other side. The left side of the brain receives sensation from, and sends motor signals to, the right side of the body and vice versa.
kidney stones
- The deposit of mineral salts in the kidneys, called calculi, can form kidney "stones." Most of the time, these are made out of calcium. These stones can pass into the tube that connects the kidneys to the bladder, which is called the ureter.
- Lithotripsy is a procedure used to break kidney stones or bladder stones into small pieces. That makes it easier to pass them in the urine. Renal stones, a term that includes both kidney and bladder stones, are small, hard mineral deposits that build up in the urinary tract. These stones are usually about the size of a pea. Most kidney stones pass through the ureters, the tubes leading from the kidneys to the bladder, into the bladder. But sometimes stones get stuck in the ureter or bladder and cause a painful obstruction. Obstruction can lead to infection, and serious kidney damage can result.
water in diet
- People can live for weeks without food. Without water, people will die within days. The human body is 50% to 70% water.
urge incontinence
- Urge incontinence is an urgent desire to urinate followed by uncontrolled loss of urine.
