Kidney Leak and kidney stones?
Hello,My uro doctor told me I have Renal calcium leak. I hadn't been here in a while but I have had another bout with kidney stones again. Seems I am getting them more and more lately. I had a KUB xray in June I think it was and nothing showed up but small stones in my kidneys.But I passed one about 3 to 4mm right after this xray. I would have laughed if it hadn't hurt so much. I have passed bigger ones but this one was rough. I am not sure why it didn't show up on xray. Usually, when my uro doctor does a KUB it shows up. But I kept hurting and he was going to do a Cat Scan but I wasn't able to get it that done due to cost.
I have had stones since1990. But they seem to be increasing and I don't know why. I am in my late 40's. Female.
I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem as they got older.
I am so tired of these stones. I watch what I eat most of the time and try not to have any oxlate foods.Watch my salt the best I can. I take a diuretic and 5 potassium pills a day because If I don't my potassium drops below 3.5. Let me tell you I know it when it does too. Does anyone else have this problem with stones that they have increased no matter what you do.
