The Surprising Link Between Dehydration and Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are a painful condition that affects 1 in 11 in their lifetime. 1 in 10 adults nationwide also have some signs of kidney damage! These are formed when minerals and salts in the urine combine to create hard deposits in the kidneys or urinary tract. While there are various factors that can lead to kidney stone development, one surprising cause is dehydration and Moonstone Stone Stopper™ can help!

What Are the Risk Factors & Causes of Kidney Stones?

Before we dive into the Surprising Link Between Dehydration and Kidney Stones, let's understand some of the common symptoms, as well as some of the risk factors and causes.
Common kidney stone symptoms may include:
  • Severe pain in your side or back
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fever and chills
  • Blood in your urine
Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of these! Your doctor will recommend appropriate treatment (from pain relief medication to hydration therapy, or in severe cases surgery).
Some of the typical risk factors and causes of kidney stones may include:
  • Diet and lifestyle (more on this later in this post)
  • Medical conditions (e.g.: urinary tract infections, obesity, IBS, and more)
  • Genetics (if family members have had kidney stones, your risk increases)
  • Where you live in, and other environmental factors (e.g.: hotter locations)
These can all contribute to the development of kidney stones, but the last one is connected to most shocking and simple cause: dehydration.

The Surprising Link Between Dehydration and Kidney Stones

When the body loses more fluid than it takes in, you become dehydrated. This is a major risk factor for developing kidney stones. This occurs when you don't drink enough water, sweat excessively, run a fever, or for many other reasons.
When the body is dehydrated it produces more concentrated urine which puts extra strain on the kidneys, and reduces blood flow to the kidneys (which can lead to kidney damage and even kidney failure in extreme cases). Studies have shown that people who drank less than 1 liter (4 cups) of water per day were 1.5 times more likely to develop kidney stones than those who drank more than 2.5 liters (over 10 cups) per day.
Water helps flush toxins and waste out of the body, and is essential for the kidneys' proper function as well as to reduce the likelihood of kidney stone formation. A perfect addition to your every day water intake would be our ready-to-mix powder beverages that come in LemonadeWild BerryCranberry RaspberryApple Berry and Tropical flavors!
In addition to drinking water, there are additional steps you can take to reduce your chances of getting kidney stones.
