Why does my teenage daughter keep getting kidney stones? She's just gone to the hospital for her third kidney stone. Is this a sign of something more serious?
Children : Children that form kidney stones, especially multiple, usually have one or more of a variety of problems. For children that have normal urinary tracts (normal kidneys, normal ureters, and normal bladders) most of these children that do not have known syndromes or medical conditions will have underlying metabolic disorders that affect the way the kidneys filter and process minerals.

It is critical to evaluate the stones composition and the 24 hour urine studies on a child with kidney stones and especially with a child that has multiple kidney stones. It must be determined that the child has normal urinary tracts and any other syndrome or conditions that predispose to stones. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
