Question:

Stomach ulcer and kidney stones associated?

Dear Ask The Doctor:
Can a stomach ulcer cause kidney stones


Answer:

Certainly not, there is no direct relation between peptic ulcers and kidney stones. Peptic ulcers usually develop when acid in the digestive tract eats away at the inner surface of the esophagus, stomach or small intestine. The acid can create a painful open sore that may bleed. This might be caused by bacteria and certain medications.
On the other hand, Kidney stones Kidney stones form when the components of urine fluid and various minerals and acids are out of balance. When this happens, your urine contains more crystal-forming substances, such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid, than the available fluid can dilute. At the same time, your urine may be short of substances that keep crystals from sticking together and becoming stones. This creates an environment in which kidney stones are more likely to form. I hope I cleared your doubt.
