Fasting with Kidney Stones

Fasting with Kidney Stones

Fasting can induce a high risk of kidney stones because many people fail to hydrate their body well, by drinking enough water between Iftar and Suhoor.

An increased number of attacks of kidney stones can occur during and immediately after Ramadan. A kidney stone pain starts at the back and radiates to the front of the tummy. It comes in spasms and may be associated with nausea and vomiting.

If you have pre-existing kidney stones condition, then seek help from our urologists via teleconsultation for appropriate advice on fasting. If the pain is severe, you have a fever with chills or see blood in the urine, then visit the hospital immediately.
