The main reason for accumulation of the minerals which leads to the formation of these stones in your kidney is consumption of different medicines.

But consumption of different medicines, more than the required amount, can lead to formation of these stones. There are other medical conditions too leading to these stones – hyperparathyroidism, urinary tract infection, renal tubular acidosis are such few.
The bad habit which leads to the formation of these stones is – not drinking sufficient amount of water. If you consume less amount of water then the acid level of your body mainly in your kidney will get raised. Because water dissolves the uric acid present in your kidney and maintains the pH level, it is essential for kidney. There are many people who drink less amount of water. As a result, the minerals don’t get flushed off from kidney and also the acid level rises in kidney.
On an average you should drink at least 8-10 glass of water in a day. This is the minimum amount of water which your body requires to function properly and to maintain the pH level.
You can’t notice any symptom till the stone reaches your ureter. When the stones reach the ureter you can notice some symptoms which are as follows:
- Pain in the regions near the ureter. Usually pain occurs in side part of your body.
- You can see the presence of blood in urine.
- You can also notice white blood cells or pus along with urine.
