Kidney stone treatment

A kidney stone is formed which is made up of chemicals present in urine. Urine has plenty of wastes which are dissolved in it. When there is plenty of waste present in too little liquid, then crystals will form. The crystals will attract other elements and it joins together to form a solid which will get larger and won’t be unable to pass via urine. Basically, these chemicals are passed out via kidney, that is the function of kidneys. In most people, having plenty of liquid washes them out or other chemicals present in the urine stop a stone from forming. There are various stone-forming chemicals which are oxalate, calcium, urate, xanthine, phosphate. You will have to manage your diet according to the stone you are having to avoid certain complications.
