Kidney Stones

This is all you need to know about kidney stones!  They can be hereditary, they are all caused by calcium.  Do not decrease your calcium intake though, unless it is already at a unhealthy level!  They can be passed, but if they can't be they might need to go in a break them up (which is done under sedation).  Do not let them insert a tube in you after the fact and leave it in there for a while, a lot of urologists do this, but it can cause infection and pain.  Stay informed!    Kidney stones - PubMed Health
