Please help me my mom has had mutiplaying kidney stones now for about a year on both sides of her kidneys, which also are causing blockage. She has had a history of kidney stones but not so many at the same time. The one out of 12 on the right side she was able to pass was a calcuim kidney stone but she has had other kinds in the past; the doctors are pretty sure she has more the one kind she has also had up to three kidney stone clusters on just one side before she's already gone threw five surgeies but the stones keep coming back dispite a healthy diet of all organic foods, a gallon of water a day, medication by professional doctors, vitamins and low sodium, cholestrol, and carb foods. She trys to always be active but the pain can cause her to lose engery and loose appitie. The doctors don't know why they are mutiplaying and the first surgeon we had for this did not keep any records good enough for the new and much better doctors to see so we are at square one. She has no family history of kidney stones other then herself she is around 50-58 in age is very good at holding pain back but this is one pain she can't ignore. She also has a history of diabetes type 2 after I was born due to bad health care from a HMO. I need help to figure out how to stop this it's been about a year and even before then she had kidney stones but unlike before they passed; also she can not has stints due to some sort of junk that caused the kidney stones to attach themselves to the stints please help me! Signed a very worried daughter
The sutff attached to the stents may have been crystals.. I've read about that happening & then t he stent is hard to remove. So sorry she is going through this. Has her doctor looked into MSK (Medullary Sponge Kidney Disease) at all ? We have a community here on MedHelp for it. It's not easily diagnosed and oftentimes is found incidentally.
Since there are several posts on Kidney stones, Id like to share my research results that could possibly afford relief to kidney stone sufferers. I am a recently retired ICU RN and I did not realize until now how important Magnesium is in our lives. Its important to know whats the right kind to take as well. This knowledge could help so many people out there .. if they only knew so I wanted to help spread the word...... It would take some reading and research on your part to be able to help yourself. I am not allowed to put in the dosage of supplements here , but the books I listed will give the answers.
Hello to all,
Kidney stones can be or are caused by too much calcium and lack of Magnesium > Since you are researching. I'd like to direct you to Search "Magnesium and kidney stones". This is one sure sign of lack of Magnesium, also included are gall stones, anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies, stressed out feeling, tremors, seizures, fear of the unknown, numbness of extremities, pain in extremities, dizziness, high BP, unstable blood sugar, irregular, rapid heart beats, memory loss, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, cramps, - and hundreds more., Dr Carolyn Dean's book is amazing. "The Magnesium Miracle.". It will help you understand your symptoms and have instructions what Magnesium to take and how much, and you will be amazed at what problems lack of Mg can cause. You tube is another good source for searching on Magnesium, several clinicians have recorded their reports and findings. Also make sure to take note of oral magnesium replacement and transdermal Mg at the same time. Oral Mg takes 6 to 12 months before it would build up enough in your system, while transdermal Mg will work instantly but you have to spray it on frequently. I got used to it. I use both but oral replacement is much simpler eventually. I have put my whole household, friends and family on Mg supplementation. You probably will end up doing the same once you do your research. Its best to get the books too. They have further info that won't be on line nor on Youtube.
The other book is "Transdermal Magnesium" by Dr. Mark Sircus... with instructions on how to use it , He is also on You tube. Taking Magnesium will also require including Vit D3, Vit B complex and Calcium rich foods (not pills) for balance.
I wish you all good health, good luck and happiness..
