This first set of tips will go over some of the basics of kidney stones.
Kidney stones start when minerals and other substances in over concentrated urine form crystals on your kidneys. These crystals can combine to form small, hard masses, or stones. Most kidney stones pass into your bladder without causing any permanent damage, but some cause excruciating pain, while others need surgery.
Kidney stones can be dated back to the age of the Egyptian pyramids, and they are still a common disorder today. In fact, over the years, there have been more and more incidences of kidney stones.
