I take 1000mg of niacin a day. Can this cause kidney stones?

My kidney area(or kidney) would sometimes pulse. I have used creatine but been off of it for about a year . I drink plenty of water. Causes?

More likely muscular: If by "kidney area" you mean mid-back to one side or the other, i would think that it is more likely that you're feeling symptoms related to the musculature of the back, e.g., muscle spasm, than due to the kidney. Kidney's can hurt, when swollen or inflamed, e.g., when infected, but this is less likely to be an intermittent problem. A simple urine test can rule out infection. ...Read more

M south indian.What is kidney stone and how are they formed?Can taking beer once a month cause kidney stone?

See answer: Kidney stones form for many reasons. Stated simply, stones form when the urine becomes over-saturated with the mineral salts normally present in the urine that can form stones: calcium, oxalate, phosphate, uric acid, etc. Precipitation of these salts is influenced by their concentration, urine volume, and other stone inhibiting/promoting substances. Beer or alcohol do not directly cause stones. ...Read more

I'm just wondering, if you drink one ore two sodas a day will you develop kidney stones or/and diabetes?

I'm just wondering, if you drink one ore two sodas a day will you develop kidney stones or/and diabetes?

Much greater chance: Sodas have extremely high levels of sugar (esp. High fructose corn syrup from gmo's) & if "diet" have nutrasweet, which is even more toxic! anyone who has any interest in being healthy should hardly ever drink this poison! the acidity worsens risk of kidney stones. Just 1 soda a day increases diabetes risk by 22%. Try kombucha instead! see http://texasfarmersmarket.Org/the-hazards-of-drinking-soda. ...Read more
