Calcium Stones
Generally, the kidney stones are calcium based and are in form of calcium oxalate. Oxalate is an element, which is easily present in food and also produced by your liver, every day. Also, some veggies and fruits, including nuts and chocolate contain high amounts of oxalate. Your diet choices, too much Vitamin D, bypass surgery (intestinal), and various metabolic disorders can also contribute towards the increment of calcium or oxalate in urine.
These calcium stones may also occur as calcium phosphate. This stone traditionally occurs when you have any metabolic conditions, like renal tubular acidosis. It can also be connected to migraine headaches or a few seizure medications.
Struvite Stone
These stones usually occur as an answer to an infection, like the urinary tract infection. These stones can become big quickly and don’t come with much symptoms or signs.
Uric acid stones
When you don’t consume too many fluids, lose a lot of fluids, have gout, or eat excess protein-rich diet, uric acid stones may form. A few genetic factors also put you at risk of forming these stones.
Cystine stones
These stones occur in people with hereditary disorders, which makes kidney produce too much amino acid.
