Kidney stones are formed when is increased the level of minerals in the body.
New research by American scientists suggests that kidney stones can increase the risk of bone fractures.
Scientists compared the level of risk in 50,000 people who have at least once in their lives had kidney stones, compared to the 500,000 people who have never had kidney stones.
The results showed that people who have had kidney stones, have a higher risk of bone fractures, compared to those who have never had kidney stones.
The level of risk depends largely on age and gender. Women are the ones that have been shown to have a higher risk of fracture compared to men.
Kidney stones formed in the body when it is increased level of minerals, particularly calcium, which begins to accumulate in the urine. The calcium has to come from somewhere, and it comes from the bones.
The level of bone mass with age begins to decline around the age of 30 years it begins to decrease drastically accelerated. Just because you have a higher risk of bone fractures in the thirties.
The good news is that the risk of fracture most only a few years after the occurrence of kidney stones, which means that you have fairly enough time to do everything that you can to prevent.
