Relationship between nephrolithiasis and hydronephrosis

Nephrolithiasis specially refers to calculi in the kidneys. The formation of kidney stones are diagnosed. These stones may pass through the urinary tract and block the urine flow. As a result, renal pelvis and calyces expands, leading to hydronephrosis.

Diet for nephrolithiasis and hydronephrosis

● Fluid. Drinking enough water is necessary for nephrolithiasis. The goal is a total urine volume in 24 hours in excess of 2 liters. In general, patients are recommended to take 2,000 mL to 3,000 mL each day.

● Reduce sodium and protein diet.

● Take moderate calcium and oxalate intake is reasonable. However, too much calcium restriction may affect the bone, so it should not be reduced without 24-hour urinalysis findings. As a rule, dietary calcium should be restricted to 600-800 mg/d in patients.

Treatment for nephrolithiasis and hydronephrosis

If other causes of hydronephrosis can be excluded, treatment can focus on removing kidney stones. In that case, I recommend patients to take traditional Chines herbs, which are very natural and effective. Based on them, we innovate several therapies applying on different parts of the body. They mainly include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Cycle Therapy. They can accelerate the dissolution of kidney stones and improve blood circulation to help kidneys discharge various wastes.
