Kidney Health – Prevent Kidney Stones

Kidney Health

Keep your urinary tract healthy after bariatric surgery.

Bariatric surgery, gastric bypass in particular, changes the composition of your urine, upping the odds that you will form kidney stones.

Kidney stones can form when there’s a change in the normal balance of water, salts and minerals found in the urine, allowing crystals to form. These crystals can combine to form stones that range in size from a sugar crystal to much larger stones. Kidney stones may pass without any sign and are rarely noticed unless they cause a blockage or break loose and move into the narrow ducts leading to the bladder. When this happens, severe back, belly or groin pain, frequent painful urination, blood in the urine or nausea can occur.
