Most kidney stones are calcium oxalate stones. This is what you are most likely to see in your doctor’s office. This is a large stone, not just a yellow crystal. It is not the color of a carrot, but a color called “saffron.” It is the color of the most desirable spice: saffron. This color is a sign of infection and a good indicator of the potential health problems that the stone carries.
A small piece of white saffron leaf can be seen at the bottom. This is the “leaves” of a small green and brown stone with white crystals around it. This is called a white stone stone. Most of the green stones show up for one reason or another, but these white stones are more common.
Your doctor will perform more than one exam to see if the stones are bad. These should be the same test.
When your doctor first tests you with the white stone stone, he or she will normally do an examination of your kidneys for signs of infection, the presence of fluid in the stoma (the area where the urine comes out of your body), and for any evidence of kidney stone debris. A blood test will also be done to determine your kidney function and function of the kidneys. They also may look at the amount of urine produced by your kidneys and may test for signs of diabetes.
They will also use various tests for the presence of toxic substances in your system as a result of the kidney stones. There may be several forms of the tests that your doctor will do.
You may only get these tests every two to three years. Sometimes the first test will check your blood pressure. The second test will be done to monitor your kidney function to see if it is increasing again and to make sure you are getting enough blood. Some doctors will have you take an ultrasound or CT scan to tell them if the stones have spread.
As long as you have the stones, the doctor will still do a kidney examination and check your kidneys to make sure that the kidneys are working properly. This makes sure that a full kidney scan is not necessary. (See our page on kidney cancer and how the scan can help.) In addition, the doctor may occasionally examine whether you have any crystals in your stoma.
If you know you have kidney stones, your doctor may ask to see a more recent x-ray to confirm that the stones are still there.
If the stones have increased or spread, your doctor
