What You Should Consume In Lesser Quantity If You Have Kidney Stones

Many people nowadays are suffering from kidney stones as a result of a lack of knowledge about a few factors that contribute to the formation of stones. The human kidney is one of the most vital and important organs in the body, and if it isn't taken care of properly, it can be dangerous.

A KIDNEY STONE is a stone that is found in the kidneys.

Kidney stones are mineral and acid salt deposits that clump together in concentrated urine. They may cause discomfort as they move through the urinary tract, but they seldom cause long-term damage.

Furthermore, if your urine contains other crystal-forming elements such as calcium, oxalate, and uric acid, kidney stones can develop, and the moisture in your urine can dilute. Similarly, your urine may be devoid of ingredients that prevent crystals from adhering together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.

KIDNEY STONES HAVE MANY SYMPTOMS.

1 A severe, intense pain in the facet and back, just behind the ribs

2 Lower stomach and groin pain

3 Pain that comes in waves and varies in strength.

4 Urinating with pain or a burning feeling

You Should Avoid These Things If You Haven't Already Taking Extremely

- SODIUM CHLORIDE IN EXCESS IS HARMFUL (SALT)

Salt, The quantity of calcium in your urine increases if you consume a lot of sodium, which is a component of salt. Any excess oxalate in your system after you've finished eating "sticks" to calcium in your kidneys, forming stones.

An extreme salt-reduction diet raises urinary calcium, which increases the risk of kidney stones developing. A number of studies have shown that reducing salt consumption reduces calcium excretion and reduces the risk of kidney stones recurrence.

- ALCOHOL OVERUSE SHOULD BE AVOIDED.

Dehydration caused by drinking alcohol can also cause kidney stones to form. If you have kidney stones, drinking alcohol may cause them to move faster. This can contribute to kidney pain and make it worse. Small kidney stones can be treated by increasing your water intake, using medicine, or using natural treatments.

It's worth noting that, while excessive alcohol use may increase the risk of kidney stones, moderate consumption has been shown to reduce the risk. Beer, white wine, and pink wine, when consumed in moderation, have been shown to help reduce the risk of kidney stones.

- AVOID EATING ANIMAL PROTEIN IN EXCESS.

Animal protein should be limited. Excessive consumption of animal protein, such as pink meat, poultry, eggs, and fish, causes uric acid to build up in the body, resulting in kidney stones. A high-protein diet also lowers urinary citrate levels, a molecule in urine that helps prevent the formation of kidney stones.
