Clearstone: An Effective Treatment For Kidney Stones
Kidney stones or Renal calculi is a term used to describe stones in kidneys. It results due to the accumulation of salts in the kidneys. Cases of renal calculi are rising across the country. It has been found that one in ten people will have a kidney stone at least once in their lifetime.
Normally, a kidney filters our blood. Its impurities and extra salts are expelled out in the urine. Deranged metabolism and salt imbalance when super-added with a reduced quantity of water, it leads to precipitation of salts in the kidney. When it starts accumulating over a nidus, it leads to stone formation.
Signs and symptoms:
The severity of signs and symptoms depend upon the size, movement and nature of the stone. Common sign and symptoms resulting from renal calculi are:
