Kidney stones are
common to adults who have sedentary life and unhealthy lifestyle habits. But,
if you hear a child suffering from kidney stones, that would be an entirely
different story.

Experts say that
before, children are lesser prone to kidney stones because they are healthier
and more physically active. But, over the years, there has been a constant
increase in the number of children that are being affected by kidney stones.
Maybe because more and more kids now are living sedentary lives by being in
front of the computer or by eating foods that are high in protein, calcium, and

Kidney stones in

Studies show that
majority of the children who are prone to developing kidney stones are those
that suffer from underlying medical conditions which increases their risk of
developing stones this early.

For parents to
understand how to deal with kidney stones in case their kids suffer from it,
they must first understand everything about the condition. Having a broad
understanding of the condition can help parents trace possible causes, identify
symptoms, and give immediate response to the child in pain.

Just like in
adults, there are different types of stones, which can be developed in a
child's system. This can either be "calcium oxalate" which is the
most common and caused by too much presence of calcium in the urine, the
"struvite stones," "uric acid stones," and "cystine
stones." These types vary depending on the levels of the minerals found
and their characteristics.

Parents would
never know if their children are suffering from kidney stones if they are not
familiar with its symptoms such as abdominal or back pain, blood in the urine
or hematuria, vomiting or nausea, and the often need to urinate. In younger
kids, these symptoms cannot easily be recognized that is why there is a need to
undergo laboratory evaluation and tests.

Since kidney
stones are not common among children, especially to younger ones, it is a must to
identify the risk factors present such as:

v Possible history
of the kidney stones which makes children more prone to the condition in the
future. (Studies show that kids who have history of kidney stones are likely to
suffer from the same problem in the next 10 to 20 years of his or her life.);

v Low
fluid—especially water—intake because it affects the ideal amount of urine that
should be released daily. (If there is lesser water or fluid intake, the
chances of developing kidney stones are much higher because there will be more
concentration of substances that leads to faster kidney stone formation.);

v Amount of diet,
especially those high in animal protein such as beef, pork, lamb, or chicken
are likely to develop kidney stones because they have higher concentration of
protein which is one of the primary causes of kidney stones. (Experts say that
children who consume too much protein are at risk in developing "calcium
oxalate stones" along with problems in terms of intestinal absorption.);

v Having a ketogenic
diet which involves a minimal amount of carbohydrates that directly affects the
levels of mineral intake;

v Experiencing
cystic fibrosis;

v Suffering from
urinary tract abnormalities like dysfunction of the bladder or the kidneys;

v Some inherited disorders
from the parents; and

v Undergoing
medications such as "furosemide," "allopurinol," and
"acetazolamide" which are known to promote formation of urine
crystals that leads to the formation of kidney stones.
