Kidney disease: Most kidney disease/kidney failure comes from longstanding, poorly controlled high blood pressure and/or diabetes. Nowaadays, it is rare for kidney stones by themselves to cause kidney failure. At your age, you should be evaluated to figure out why you are forming stones. It may require a lifelong intervention, but your future appears to be headed towards multiple stone events.
