KIDNEY STONES: THE HOTTER IT GETS THE MORE IT HURTS
Research released this past month from Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia has reported an increase in the number of individuals, including children, developing kidney stones. Although there are many factors that can contribute to kidney stone formation, the research showed that there was a direct relationship between the average daily temperatures and the risk of having a kidney stone. Also, after heat waves, medical visits for this stones peak about 3 days later. The researchers reported that if our average daily temperatures increase as most climatologists predict, we will continue to see more kidney stones. Currently there are 70% more kidney stone events than we had 20 years ago with approximately 1 in 10 adults suffering this painful condition.
