Kidney stones, also called urolithiasis, occur due to formation of solid materials in the urinary tract. Stones are formed when minerals in urine are of high concentration.
Small stones pass out in the urine, but larger stones can cause blockage in the ureter causing severe pain in the lower back or abdomen. Other symptoms include blood in the urine, vomiting, nausea, and sweating and/or painful urination. There is an obstruction to flow of urine in this condition. So, dehydration may occur as a result of drinking less water to avoid discomfort. There can be a combination of many factors like genetics and environmental.
Drinking enough water can prevent the formation of stones to a large extent. In severe cases, large kidney stones if left untreated, can lead to kidney damage.
