What causes kidney stones to form and who gets them?

Internal Medicine - Cardiology

In brief: Very serious

There are different causes and different treatments.
If you've had 2 episodes, you need a full workup. This done by an urologist or endocrinologist. Kidney stones are horrible and must be taken seriously, but the usual procedure is a w/u on the 2nd round.
