Kidney Stones are urinary disorders that occur when salt/chemicals in the urine form crystals. These stones can then restrict the flow of urine, and lead to serious complications including infection, kidney damage or even kidney failure. Kidney Stones consist of various types of chemicals including calcium, phosphate and oxalate.
This urinary disorder affects more men than women between the ages of 20−40. Different types of Kidney Stones are composed of different chemicals, and these include:
- Calcium Oxalate Stones or Calcium Phosphate Stones (most common type)
- Cystine Stones
- Struvite Stones
- Uric Acid Stones
