Get Rid of Kidney Stones
Anyone who has experienced kidney stones can attest to the fact that it is unpleasant to say the least and those with the misfortune of having a kidney stone once are more likely to develop another one in the future. A urology clinic in El Paso, TX, such as Rio Grande Urology, can effectively determine what treatment path to take. You may need extensive medical evaluation, including the testing of minerals in your urine to determine the likelihood of developing more stones. If kidney stones are small enough they may be passed through the body within a few days or weeks. Unfortunately, kidney stones may go unnoticed until they begin to move and block the flow of urine. Your body may experience waves of pain in the back and lower abdomen area moving towards the groin. Common symptoms include: nausea and vomiting, bloody stools, frequent urge to urinate and when an infection is combined there can be painful urination and fever. It is recommended to contact a urology clinic in El Paso, TX if you are suspect you may have a kidney stone or are experiencing any of the named symptoms. Although test results may show no sign of a kidney stone, you may have a urinary tract infection or some other disorder that needs medical attention. Urologists can confirm the presence of kidney stones using various imaging tools such as CT scan, intravenous pyelogram (IVP) and an ultrasound. Most practitioners will recommend a healthy diet high in fiber with lots of water to help with the at home recovery process. With professional medical treatment and a healthy lifestyle, you can get rid of kidney stones and regain your wellbeing.
