Why People with Horseshoe Kidney Have Kidney Stone

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2012-10-02 17:39

Kidney stone is a common complication of horseshoe kidney. It is a major risk factor in causing renal function decline. Therefore, it is very important for the patients to know how it occurs so they can take preventive measures to reduce its incidence.

Urine contains various kinds of metabolic wastes like urea, uric acid, creatinine, salt contents and acidic materials. In right condition, these wastes can be excreted from body normally.

However, in horseshoe kidney, the deformity in kidney structure is very likely to cause UPJ obstruction and urinary tract obstruction. As a result, a large amount of urine will linger in body and less urine is produced. Then some substances with low-solubility like calcium oxalate, uric acid, calcium phosphate etc will combine with each other to form kidney stones.

Usually, the patients with kidney stone do not experience symptoms. However, when the stone moves, it may cause extreme pain and hematuria. If it is stuck in renal pelvis and ureter, it will affect urination, thus resulting in hydronephrosis.

If serious kidney stone occurs in horseshoe kidney, intervention treatment should be used to treat the condition at once. The following treatment options can help.

1. Dietary change

Dietary change can help a lot in preventing kidney stone. The patients should limit the foods high in oxalate and calcium phosphate. If urinary tract obstruction or hydronephrosis does not occur, drinking more water is good for the patients.

2. Surgical therapy

If the stone is too big or it is hard to eliminate by using lithotripsy, surgery will be needed to remove them.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotheray

If the kidney stone has impaired renal function, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help stimulate the regeneration of kidney tissues and cells to improve renal function.
