Kidney stone reaches 15% of the population but the incidence doubles in the summer

The rush of everyday life that prevents healthy habits at the table, leading many people to opt for foods with excess sodium, combined with low fluid intake is causing, especially in summer, an increase in cases of kidney stones.

On average, barely reaches 15% of the population but the incidence doubles in the summer, according to the urologist warns Fabio Vicentini, chief physician at the Clinic of lithiasis (calculation) Renal Reference Center of Men's Health, linked to the Department of Health the state government.

Increasingly people are always running, can not eat right and end up eating food with too much salt, too much red meat and taking little liquid, which leads to an increase in cases of kidney stones, the doctor reported. In the summer, he says, people dehydrate because of increased sweating and not always compensate for this loss of water from the body by drinking fluids.

A sign indicating that a person can be with the formation of the calculation is the hue of urine, which should always be clear. If you have a stronger yellow, the urine is concentrated and it facilitates the emergence of pebbles. In 85% of cases diagnosed, the size of the calculations is small and can be dissolved and expelled with the use of medications and diet.

According to the doctor, half of the patients on treatment returns to the problem, or because the stone was not completely expelled or reason to keep the same habits that led to the formation of the calculations. He recommends that one should drink plenty of water, on average two liters per day, and natural juices. The melon, orange and lemon are the most suitable because they contain a substance, citrate, which helps in the proper functioning kidney.

Among the tips passed on by the Department of Health is to reduce the use of salt, which can be compensated by means of natural herbs like parsley, chives and oregano, and lemon juice, which enhance the flavor of food. Through a statement, the Secretariat recalled that the famous tea shatterstone does miracles. The beneficial effect comes from the liquid and not the leaves, which can lead to poisoning.
