What is a Kidney Stone?

Kidney Stone are also called as Renal stones or renal calculi. They are formed due to  the hard deposits made from minerals and salts that the kidneys fail to excrete properly. Kidney Stones can vary in size.

They can vary from a tiny grain of sand to a big stone as large as up to 20 mm. Kidney Stones cause severe pain and discomfort in the abdomen and can lead to complications in the kidneys if left untreated.

Signs and Symptoms of Kidney Stone



Signs and Symptoms of kidney stone

  • Pain

    Pain is the most common symptom of Kidney Stones. The pain starts from the back (Loin) and radiates to the groin. The typical diagnostic symptom is pain from the loin to the Groin. It is a severe excruciating pain and the patient becomes very restless due to unbearable pain.
  • Difficulty in Urination (Dysuria)

    Kidney Stones sometimes obstruct the flow of urine, causing difficulty to pass urine or pain while passing urine (Dysuria). The colour of the urine can also change from yellow to red (hematuria – blood in urine). Sometimes the consistency also changes and the urine appears opaque and milky due to pus.
  • Nausea and Vomiting

    Because of the severity of the pain, it irritates the abdominal organs causing the sensation of nausea and vomiting. More the pain, more the vomiting.
  • Blood in Urine (Hematuria):

    As kidney stones move within the kidneys and ureter, they can irritate the lining, causing micro-abrasions that result in micro bleeding. This can manifest as red-coloured urine, and microscopic examination may reveal the presence of red blood cells in the urine.
  • Fever and Chills

    If there is a secondary infection then the patient will also experience fever with chills. This is typically due to pus in the urine.

Types of Kidney Stones

Common Causes of Kidney Stones

causes of kidney stone


  • Dehydration

    When your fluid intake is Inadequate it causes kidneys to retain fluid and excrete less amount of urine. Due to this the urine becomes concentrated increasing the risk of stone formation.
  • Dietary Factors

    Consuming foods high in oxalate, sodium, or protein can contribute to the development of kidney stones.
  • Family History

    A strong family history of Kidney Stones increases the chances of developing Kidney Stone in a patient.
  • Medical Conditions

    Certain medical conditions, such as hyperparathyroidism or urinary tract infections, can predispose to Kidney Stone formation in a susceptible patient.



Kidney stones form when certain minerals in the urine, such as calcium, oxalate, and uric acid, become concentrated and bond together to form crystals. Sufficient fluid intake helps dilute these minerals in the urine, reducing the risk of stone formation. The main factors influencing the formation of kidney stones include urine pH, fluid intake, and the presence of specific chemicals in the urine.

Complications if Not Treated

If left untreated, Kidney Stones can lead to complications due to:

  • Obstruction

    Large Kidney Stones may obstruct the proper flow of urine and can cause severe pain and kidney damage.
  • Infection

    Kidney Stones can harbor bacteria and it increases the risk of urinary tract infections.
  • Kidney Damage

    Prolonged obstruction or recurrent stone formation can damage the kidneys and impair their kidney functions.

Investigations for diagnosis of Kidney Stone

If you experience abdominal pain radiating from the back to the front of the abdomen, typically from the loin to the groin, it is highly likely to be due to kidney stones. In such cases, your doctor may recommend a plain X-ray or an ultrasound to detect the size, location, and any complications associated with the kidney stone. Additionally, to assess the extent of obstruction, the doctor may suggest an additional investigation called an intravenous pyelogram. Sometimes, a blood test to determine elevated levels of calcium and phosphorus may also be advised to determine the type of stone.

Conventional Approach

Conventional treatment for Kidney Stones includes pain management by painkillers, hydration therapy to flush out the stone, and, in some cases, surgical intervention to remove or break up large stones. Surgical intervention includes lithotripsy to break the big stone into small so that they can pass easily. Occasionally cystoscopy or ureteroscopy to remove obstructed stone.

You can explore non-surgical alternatives by opting for homeopathic treatment for kidney stones.

Preventive Steps

Follow these steps to reduce the risk of Kidney Stone formation.

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, especially water.
  • Maintain a balanced diet that is low in sodium, oxalate, and animal proteins.
  • Maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly.

Limit consumption of foods high in oxalate, such as spinach, nuts, and chocolate.

  • Can homeopathy help in dissolving Kidney Stones?

    Kidney Stones can be dissolved, but they are thrown out of the body by contractions of the kidneys, ureter and bladder by homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic medicines can help to relieve the pains and also prevent the recurrence of Kidney Stones by targeting the underlying causes.


  • Is surgery the only option for large Kidney Stones?

    Surgery may be sometimes necessary for large or obstructive Kidney Stones in the ureter and where the size of the stone is more than the size of the ureter. However, we have cases where large stones are being broken into small stones by the contractions of the kidneys and then they are eliminated via the urinary tract.


  • How long does homeopathic treatment take to show results?

    The duration of homeopathic treatment for Kidney Stones usually takes 4 to 6 months. However, many patients experience relief from symptoms within a few weeks of starting treatment. And the main focus is on preventing the recurrence of the Kidney Stone formation.
