Calcification In Kidney

Depends how much: I assume somebody saw calcification on an x-ray. Unless it's a tiny amount, it means you have early atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Calcified arteries at age 30 are worrisome and suggest at some point blood flow could be reduced to your heart and other organs. Is your blood sugar, blood pressure or cholesterol elevated? Have a physician check out your metabolism. Avoid junk food. ...Read more

Cysts are very common, and if they meet certain well defined criteria (bozniak classification), they are usually benign and need no further follow up. ...Read more
Punctate nonobstructing calcific fleck found on left kidney pelvis. I must control stone-mkg w/ Urocit-K. Will this fleck get bigger or pass?
Stone passable: If stone is described as punctate it is likely only a millimeter or two in diameter which makes it a good bet to pass if it moves into the kidney tube (ureter). If you are on Urocit K (potassium citrate) I assume that you have been diagnosed with a low citrate level and this medication supplements the level which can prevent certain calcium crystals from forming. Key is to have stone monitored, with good hydration ...Read more

Seriousness is a 2. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
