2012-09-10 17:57

It has been discovered by researchers Todd Alexander and Marcello Tonelli that kidney stone is a risk factor of kidney failure. They conducted a research and collected data of more than 3 million people in Alberta from 1997 to 2009. Those that have the history of kidney stone are twice more likely to develop serious kidney diseases later and women younger than 50 were found to be 4 times more likely to develop into kidney failure if they had kidney stones.

This is because when the stones pass through the kidney, there will definitely be damages to the kidneys, therefore proper and regular follow-up checks and cares are very important for preventing recurrence of kidney stone and possibilities of renal impairment and deterioration.

Generally the recurrent rate of kidney stone can be lowered in 2/3 patients with proper diet adjustment and taking large amount of water. The diet principle for lowering the incidence of kidney stone are low-calcium, low-salt, low-oxalate, low animal protein, low animal fat, low-sugar, high-fiber. In addition, more water and fresh vegetables and fruits should be eaten more.

However please do not be alarmed because there is only a minority of people with kidney stone will develop permanent kidney damages.
