Evaluation of factors responsible for occurrence of renal stones: our experience


Dr. Sanjay Kumar Gupta

In India Kidney stones are not uncommon problem due to the hot and often humid weather. Most of these stones are made up of Calcium, Oxalate and phosphates. The cause of stone disease is debatable; however it is well known that drinking less water is a risk factor for stone disease. New research by the National Kidney foundation suggests that the culprit is a tiny bacteria called Nano bacteria. These bacteria use a protective covering made of Calcium, which may act as a seed for calcium deposits that may enlarge to form stones. Researchers examined 30 stones in a study and found living Nano bacteria in all of them. So antibiotics may prove to be effective means of treating and preventing Kidney stones. These findings are exciting and may eventually lead to new and more effective ways of treating and preventing kidney stones. The present study was planned in Department of General Surgery, Mata Gujri Memorial Medical College and Lion Seva Kendra Hospital, Kishanganj, Bihar. The study was done from Jan 2016 to November 2016. Total 50 cases of the Kidney stones were evaluated in the present study. From the present study, it was found that the major risk factors that contribute to the stone formation and its re occurrence are Age, Gender, and other disease, habits (Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian) and personal habits (Smoking and Alcohol). Management of renal calculi can be achieved by focusing on proper diet, exercise and adequate fluid intake. A multidisciplinary approach should be adopted like changing their lifestyle, dietary intervention on large scale and health education in this regard may be helpful as a preventive measure to overcome the problem.
