Kidney Failure Caused by Kidney Stone: Symptoms, Treatment, Prevention

Will kidney stone cause kidney failure? Unluckily, the answer is yes. Persistent kidney stones can cause damage to kidneys and without immediate management, it will develop into kidney failure eventually.

Kidney Failure caused by Kidney Stone

Kidney stones may cause continuous blockage which may lead to atrophy in a kidney eventually. This can result in a dilated, thinned out kidney with minimal function.

Besides kidney stone itself, the infection related to kidney stone may also contribute to kidney failure. Infection related stones, usually composed of struvite and sometimes presenting as a complete “staghorn” can lead to ongoing chronic urinary tract infections that cause damage slowly through inflammation and scarring of the kidney tissue.


The most common of kidney failure caused by kidney stones include:

- fluctuating pain in back

- burning and painful sensation during urinating

- nausea or vomiting

- Blood in Urine

- Fever or Chills


Treatment for kidney failure due to kidney stone is made based on what type of kidney stone you have. A 24-hour collection of urine can help your doctor find the best treatment for your condition. There are many ways to remove kidney stones and some of common choice are as follows:

- Nephrolithotomy, or percutaneous (meaning “through the skin”) nephrolithotomy,is when the doctor makes a small incision in your back and removes the kidney stone using a nephroscope.

- Ureteroscopic kidney stone removal is a procedure that uses a scope passed through the bladder to remove a stone that is stuck in the ureter.

- Shock waves that are sent directly to the kidney stone. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) or sound waves is not an invasive treatment, so it doesn’t require surgery or a hospital stay.

- Herbal treatment. Many herbs help dissolve the kidney stone and remove the kidney stones naturally from the body.


Actually, kidney damage can be prevented for most of kidney stone patients.

- prevent infections. Infections increase the risk to develop kidney damage in people who have kidney stones. They should be sure to have their stones treated and need followup to insure infections and stones do not return.

- Work with your doctor to prevent future stones. A prevention plan may include testing for the reason why you are forming stones, diet changes, or in certain cases, medications.

Preventions are always the best treatment. Healthy diet and regular monitor suggestions are available in our web. If you need, we are glad to help.
