Kidney stones are collections of salts or minerals that come together in the kidney or urinary tract to form small balls, some as small as sand and some as large as golf balls. They cause pain in the sides or groin, and they often cause blood to be present in the urine.
When the levels of water, salt, acids, and minerals in the urine become unbalanced, kidney stones can form. Low fluid consumption, strenuous exercise, and dehydration can cause these stones to appear.
Men are more prone to getting kidney stones once they reach forty years of age, and they continue to be more and more susceptible until they reach their seventy’s. Women are at their most susceptible during their fifty’s.
