Due to dehydration brought on by rising temperatures, doctors have seen an increase in kidney stones and urinary infections, especially in people between the ages of 20 and 40.

According to reports, since summer began, the number of these instances has risen. Kidney stones are said to develop mostly as a result of dehydration made worse by high humidity. The body needs two to three liters of water each day at the very least, but summertime sweating depletes the body’s water reserves, which can result in kidney stones and urinary tract infections.

Kidney stones are detected in 10–20 lac instances in India each year; men are affected three times more often than women. Summertime reports of cases account for about 40% of all cases.

Renowned urologist Dr. Jagadish highlighted the need of staying properly hydrated in order to avoid kidney stones, explaining that the condition is caused by the build-up of calcium and other elements that are filtered out of urine. In order to lower the chance of kidney stones, he suggested drinking two to three liters of water every day and discouraged retaining pee.

While kidney stones typically occur in middle-aged men as a result of calcium deposition, specialist Dr. Satish Shankar pointed out that younger people are becoming more and more affected by the ailment as a result of sedentary lifestyles and dietary factors including excessive consumption of protein, salt, and sugar.

Renal stones can also occur in children, as noted by renowned nephrologist Dr. Mohit. These stones are frequently brought on by junk food consumption, low water intake, and an increase in fat. If the illness is not treated, early discovery makes medication treatment possible, but surgery can be required if the problem worsens.
