be careful of Kidney stones and water intake
Urolithiasis is the most common disease in Department of Urology, the outpatient admissions of patients with more than 75% of all patients. The stone is very rare in infants, the most common is 20 - 40 years old, and slightly more men than women, the specific mechanism of pathogenesis is still unclear, but with heredity, diet, metabolism and other factors are involved.
Urinary tract stones can generally be pided into upper urinary calculi (kidney, ureteral stones) and lower urinary tract stones (bladder, urethra). Chen said: "in the past 30 years, the incidence of bladder stones decreased rapidly, but the number of patients with kidney stones was significantly increased."
Although stones can be treated, but particularly easy to relapse, 10 year recurrence rate of up to 50%. Experts pointed out that Southern China and other places of high temperature is the incidence of high incidence of lithiasis, high temperature, resulting in a small amount of sweat and urine is a reason.
Aunt Lee suffering from kidney stones for many years, so she often Yaosuanbeiteng, and later to the hospital to remove the stones, have advanced renal failure (uremia), to long-term hemodialysis. Experts pointed out that the kidney stones caused by uremia is rare in patients with uremia by recurrent urinary tract stones eventually into less than 5% uremia, is mainly determined by the size of kidney stones and stone parts. However, if the stone just stuck in the urinary catheter, or stones caused hydronephrosis is more dangerous, including kidney stones and water, suggesting impaired renal function.
Kidney stones, without hematuria or back pain symptoms, should pay attention to every six months to do an ultrasound detection, not increasing observation and monitoring have stones, the occurrence of water.
Drinking water + traditional Chinese medicine can be small stones
Children less than 4mm stones, less than 7mm of the stones, in theory, can be discharged through conservative treatment." Chen said that when the stone is greater than the diameter, only through surgical intervention methods, such as extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, stone surgery, etc..
Among them, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy is a large stone broken into small stones, and then excreted in the urine, so the stone below 3mm, no water, no ureteral deformity, drink plenty of water and suitable for traditional Chinese medicine row stone is conservative treatment method is more effective, and the early discovery of calculus (family history and stone) the stone will be excreted through conservative treatment may.
A lot of people used to get up in the morning to drink a glass of water, however, Chen pointed out that before going to bed drink two cups of water is a more effective way to prevent stones and stones". He explained that due to the excretion of stone components appear in the night peak, the opportunity to form a solid will be higher, before drinking water can be diluted in the blood of the stone composition.
Feng Yan, director of nutrition, pointed out that the amount of urine a day less than 1000ml will increase the incidence of stones, such as more than 2000ml per day to reach the urine, it can prevent the recurrence of stones. And should be limited to tea, sugary drinks, carbonated drinks and other intake.
