Signs and Symptoms of Kidney Stones - One out of every 10 people in the world has a kidney stone. Kidney stones are made up of minerals and salts. 

The main causes of kidney stones are your diet, weight, certain diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure, certain types of supplements and some medicines.

Kidney stones are made of calcium oxalate, uric acid, struvite, and cystine. Many waste products are found in our urine, when the amount of waste products in our urine is high and water is less, then crystals start forming in it. 

These crystals slowly keep adding other waste products to themselves and then keep increasing their size.

When these stones move from their place, there is terrible pain.
These stones come from the kidney into the ureter, then into the bladder, and then pass through the urethra. 

Whenever these stones get stuck somewhere along the way, there is terrible pain and sometimes they are so big that they block your urine and you need to be hospitalized immediately.

Kidney stones can be as large as a golf ball to the size of a mustard seed. The bigger the stone, the more symptoms you will see.
