If you have been recently sensing a feeling of discomfort in the stomach, complaining of severe pain in the lower back, nauseated, then it’s time to get proper treatment before things get complicated. According to medical diagnosis, these symptoms, including a bad odour while urinating or cloudy urine is a clear indication of kidney stone.
These are formed by the reaction of various foods and chemicals that you intake daily. Either you can avoid these harmful food items, take necessary precautions or seek help from a medical practitioner.
Does your food contain stone-forming chemicals, i.e. oxalate, calcium, urate, xanthine, cystine, and phosphate? Then, it’s time to find out.
Recent studies have even shown that people who intake high doses of vitamin C (maybe in the form of medicine or supplements) are more prone to getting affected by kidney stones. Based on recent reports, the prevalence of kidney diseases, particularly kidney stones is about half a million globally, every year.
Other possible reasons for the formation of kidney stones are drinking inadequate amounts of water, obesity, and family history. These are directly proportional to kidney stone formation. Last but not least, you can also try following the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which has proven to reduce the risk of kidney stones.
