Ninja Nerds!

In this lecture Professor Kristin Beach, MSN, BSN, RN will be discussing Renal Calculi. Renal Calculi (also called kidney stones, nephrolithiasis or urolithiasis) are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys.

Diet, excess body weight, some medical conditions, and certain supplements and medications are among the many causes of kidney stones. Kidney stones can affect any part of your urinary tract — from your kidneys to your bladder. Often, stones form when the urine becomes concentrated, allowing minerals to crystallize and stick together.

We hope you enjoy this lecture!
