Are Kidney Stones an Omen?

Kidney stones are one of the most common urinary tract disorders shared by men and women. Approximately half a million visits to the ER per year are attributable to patients who are in severe pain resulting from the body trying to actively pass a kidney stone that is blocking either of the ureters between the kidneys and the bladder. Immediate relief is typically experienced once a stone has passed. However, according to researchers, that relief may be misplaced as it could be an omen of future kidney disease for some.
