The Kidney is necessary to maintain the electrolyte levels in the blood are balanced to ensure homeostasis. The Kidney eliminates the waste products in both liquid and solid form. It is when this process is inhibited by controlling the urine, kidney stones are formed. The urine consists of a number of chemicals when can crystallize when placed in a constant acidic liquid environment. This process of crystallization is the beginning of the formation of kidney stones which are initially they can quickly accumulate and grow larger than an inch over time.
It is referred to as Urolithiasis while the kidney stones are referred to as Nephrolithiasis and the stones in the ureter are termed as Urolithiasis. The location of the stone in the Kidney or urinary tract is more important than its size. It should be first determined if the stone is preventing the flow of urine as this could quickly lead to various other complications and become potentially dangerous.
