Are my chances higher to get kidney stones if i take pre workout supplements and creatine the same day of a workout?

Are my chances higher to get kidney stones if i take pre workout supplements and creatine the same day of a workout?

Not the key: Your history indicates you've already had kidney stones. The key for you will be staying well-hydrated. Creatine's great for a man putting on muscle, and protein's good after; i hope you're not spending much money on anything else and i trust you're a natural bodybuilder -- everyone i know who's tried artificial steroids has been sorry. Best wishes. ...Read more

If my Creatine level is 110 for a 30 yo female, and I have a kidney stone blockage will it continue to rise? how fast will it rise?

If my Creatine level is 110 for a 30 yo female, and I have a kidney stone blockage will it continue to rise?  how fast will it rise?

Blocked kidney: We look at BUN and Cr when evaluating kidney function. If a kidney stone is blocking the flow of urine (obstructing) and resulting in abnormal kidney labs, the stone should be dealt with by a urologist. Lithotripsy uses sound waves to break up stones. A stent can also open up the blockage and help relieve pressure on the obstructed kidney. ...Read more

Exercise about 30 minutes/day. Dietary supplements are not needed for otherwise healthy people. ...Read more

Does whey protein and creatine powder harm to kidney stone patients? Should I stop or continue taking it? Stone size 3.4mm on right and 3.2mm in left.

Does whey protein and creatine powder harm to kidney stone patients? Should I stop or continue taking it? Stone size 3.4mm on right and 3.2mm in left.

I would stop..: Kidney stones occur when certain components of the urine--typically calcium, oxalate, uric acid & phosphorus--increase and become concentrated. Then they precipitate causing stones. Excess protein intake demands more work from kidneys and possible less efficient flushing of these urine components. Protein supplements may increase kidney work demands; get protein in diet. ...Read more

Can you get kidney stones from drinking well water?

Thanks for asking!: This depends on the mineral constituents of the well water and your family history. Renal stones tend to run in families and are often due to subtle abnormalities in various biochemical metabolic pathways. This could make a person susceptible to stones depending on the make up of the well water. Well water should always be tested if individuals have had or have a family history of stones. ...Read more

If I only drink milk and soda, is it possible to get kidney stones?

If I only drink milk and soda, is it possible to get kidney stones?

Not necessarily: Milk contains calcium, a component of stones. Dehydration is more of a factor in stone production. Unless one has a specific metabolic abnormality, milk ingestion doesn't necessarily cause stones. Sodas have not been definitively linked to stone production. Caffeine within sodas can dehydrate, however. Dehydration, as mentioned above, is more of a factor in stone production. ...Read more

Do I have to drink a lot of soda and sugary drinks to get kidney stones? Is there any other way?

Yes, many ways.: There are many different types of kidney stones, and therefore many different causes of stones. Many times diet is a factor, but sometimes certain medical conditions or medications can be the cause. Even the way the kidneys process minerals in the urine can lead to stones. If you have a history of kidney stones, a 24 hr urine test and blood tests can help a nephrologist find the cause. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it more likely to get a kidney stone by drinking aspirin and paracetamol with coke? Or is it just as likely if you don't?

Is it more likely to get a kidney stone by drinking  aspirin and paracetamol with coke? Or is it just as likely if you don't?

May be: High amount of any sugary drinks like coke etc raise your chances of formation of kidney stones. On the other hand ch use of paracetamol and other NSAID like Motrin etc cause kidney damage directly so any combination of both in heavy amounts and over a long period is not good for kidneys. ...Read more

When I was about 2 I had a kidney stone due to calcium. I'm 17 now so if I drink protein shakes with 480mg of calcium, can I get one again?

When I was about 2 I had a kidney stone due to calcium. I'm 17 now so if I drink protein shakes with 480mg of calcium, can I get one again?

Electrolyte status?: It is important to know more about why the original stone happened. Is there a metabolic error in how your calcium gets excreted in the urine, or concentrated in the bloodstream? Are there other concerns (i.e. renal disease, hyperparathyroidism) that affect your calcium balance? I would avoid any excess/supplemental calcium for now in favor of a regular balanced diet and more data from past PCPs. ...Read more

I have kidney stones I haven't been able to pass them drinking lots of water and cranberry juice is there any other way to get rid of them?

Likely no: Is this an old problem ie. known in your medical history, or are you having acute flank pain/blood in your urine/ difficulty urinating / fevers right now? If the latter, go and see a urologist- you may need a lithotripsy (shock waves to break up stones in the kidney) or other procedure. ...Read more
