Can kidney stone symptoms trigger loss of appetite or weight loss? I haven't had much of an appetite the last few days. Thank you kindly.

Kidney Stones : Blocking of the ureter by a stone, even temporarily, causes colic. This brings on pain in most, but, can also produce nausea and vomiting. If you do not have a full effect of vomiting from the stone, you may experience it's symptoms as a loss of appetite with some subsequent weight loss. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids to help it pass. Some sugar in your drink may help with weight loss. ...Read more

How can I avoid getting kidney stones or gallstones on a VLCD? Why causes these to occur? Is it the weight loss itself that causes this?

Stones and VLCD: Kidney stones should not occur on a VLCD if you drink plenty of liquids, and assuming you do not have an abnormality in calcium metabolism. Gallstones are different. Less food= less bile = sludge and small stones, which can occasionally cause colic. The risk is small, but ursodiol can prevent this. Talk to your doc. Gallstones are common; you may have before you start the diet. ...Read more

Kidney stones: Kidney stones can definitely cause both microscopic blood or grossly noticeable blood in the urine, but not necessarily proteinuria. They don't cause weight loss per se,though.

See Doctor: If you are "sure" it all stems from your unpassed stone, you could see a urologist, but this sounds non-descript enough to suggest going to a generalist first for exam/history, then labs/urinalysis, and possibly imaging study to see what is going on. ...Read more

Shortness of breath in the absence of lung disease suggests "oxygen hunger". I suggest that you read my blog "oxygen, the spark of life" that you can google it may change your mind about how medicine is supposed to work. ...Read more
