What are kidney stones?
Kidney stones are a type of small stone that can vary from the size of a grain of sand to a golf ball. There are different types of stones relating to what they are made of and where they are located. As a general rule, stones are formed in the kidneys, but can also form in the liverand the gallbladder.
In their more advanced stages, they travel to the bladder, the urethra and the intestines. The most common types are made from a mix of calcium and acid that causes a reaction which creates them.
Symptoms that can be warning signs of a kidney stone includes: fluctuating abdominal pain, painful urination, changes in the colour and smell of urine, frequently needing to pee but without actually being able to, fevers and chills.
To get rid of kidney stones in our body, depending on the seriousness and where they are found, sometimes all you have to do is drink lots of fluids and take antibiotics. If the problem isn’t found early or the stones are located in the gallbladder or the liver, an operation could be necessary to remove them.
Kidney stones as a result of skipping breakfast?
Breakfast is important, but is it so much so that skipping this meal can cause kidney stones to form? According to doctors that treated Chen, the 42-year-old woman who found more than 200 stones lodged in her bladder and liver, they were caused because she had been skipping breakfast for more than 10 years. However, although not everyone agrees on this fact, a group of gastroenterologists has denied that there is any relation between the food you eat and the formation of kidney stones.
Now I don’t know about you, but from now on, on the off chance that it’s true, we’re going to refer to the saying: breakfast like kings,lunch like princes and dinner like a poor man.
