Kidney Stones : Causes
Recent research by Eric Taylor of the Women's Hospital in Boston have shown that being overweight is one of the causes of kidney stones, and the more excess weight - the higher the risk.

Kidney stones are formed from the mineral substances found in the urine, but are excreted from the kidneys to the ureters on.This usually occurs when disrupted water balance in the body, for example, it is dehydrated.

stones go through the excretory system and can cause severe pain, nausea, vomiting, blood in the urine.From

nephrolithiasis affects about 10% of women and 5% of men worldwide.Every year the number of patients increased by 2 million people.

Kidney stones: the reason - excess weight

The study involved nearly 250 thousand men and women..power was established test, fluid intake, regularly given diuretics, special diet has been appointed.The experiment took place in three stages.In the course of it we found out the following.

Complete women are at risk of ill kidney disease more than men complete.And t

he greater the obesity, the higher the risk.

Thus, women weighing more than 100 kg, the probability of formation of kidney stones was 90% higher than in women with a weight of 70 kg.

Every 16 kg of extra weight increases the likelihood of kidney stones by 43%.At the same time women aged 34 to 59 years weighing more than 100 kg may get kidney stones by 89% more than weighing 70 kg, and women younger than 21 years - 92%.

Men weighing more than 100 kg the risk of developing kidney disease by 44% higher than those who weigh less than 70 kg.

... and not only

The researchers also found, what other factors besides obesity, affect the rate of formation of kidney stones.

One cause of kidney stones was insulin resistance.Insulin increases the amount of potassium in the blood, and potassium, in turn, contributes to the formation of kidney stones.

higher body mass index (insulin is usually prescribed for diabetes, and with few exceptions they are sick people total), the greater the risk of kidney stones.

results of the study were published in the United States Medical Association Journal.Subsequently, Erik and his colleagues plan to study how weight loss can help in the treatment of kidney stones.While scientists are calling to watch your weight even then to prevent kidney stones.
