Never heard of this. I'll have to relay this information to all I know who suffer from this awful affliction.Asked to be checked for Parathyroid disease. The parathyroid glands control the release of calcium from bones. These glands, typically 4 of them, are the size of a grain of rice. I had two removed. Your body only needs one gland.
This can be revealed by a simple test. I lived a long life without any kidney stones. During an annual physical, blood was found in my urine. I was sent to a urologist who found I had two very large stones on my left side and 5 on my right.Never heard of this.

I'm pretty sure mine was caused by dehydration in cold weather SS yours was. Since I make a point to hydrate more I haven't had another problem with them. But I do have a problem with peeing a lot!Worst pain I've ever experienced...my main issue was dehydration...and this time of year is the most challenging for me being cold outside...I can watch the color of my urine and tell how I'm doing on my daily fluid intake...Thankfully my urologist allows me to count coffee in my daily fluid intake....so bottle water and coffee for me. Lemonade in the hot summer. Body Armor on occasion. Staying hydrated is my best advice against kidney stones...also I had to reduce my sodium intake for the type of stone I had...reduced sodium and increased fluid intake was his instructions for me.
