No two stones are exactly the same. My brothers are because his body over
produces calcium. My grandpas were magnesium based. I got mine from
dehydration during pregnancy and nursing despite drowning my system with water
Kidney stones may be a symptom of ingesting too little calcium. When the body
senses that it needs more calcium, the parathyroid glands will go into
overdrive, secreting hormones to get calcium from the bones. The thinking is
that this mechanism is not perfect, and can result in too much calcium being
pulled from the bones so that stones form. Doctors who do not understand this
will then remove the patient's parathyroid gland(s). Calcium is a vital
nutrient. Kids are now getting kidney stones - probably from drinking soda
rather than milk. Don't skimp on calcium!
Who said kidney stones didn't hurt??
I agree with Howie. I love how uninformed people comment on something they don't
know anything about. This was one of the worst pains I've ever experienced. I
had mine 15 years ago and I can still remember vividly how much agony I was in.
Glad to read about new technology that can help with this. My daughter was
recently in Intermountain Medical Center and had a great experience. What a
wonderful beautiful hospital.
This is a wonderful service. Thanks Deseret News for providing us this
information. -- Gayle
Worst pain I have ever had in my life. Some of those commenting have no idea
what it is like.
I would rather bull my lower lip up over my head...
Don't eat kidneys!
... or rather "counterintuitive"?
article. was written for the kickbacks.
This article is uniformative and worthless. Don't use an attractive headline
and then follow it with this nonsense.
Most businesses have to advertise, but some get "journalists" to write
"authoritative" "articles" like this one. Just Google "watermelon cleanse".
