Qualitative Analysis of Human Kidney Stone Samples Using Biochemical Tests and by X-Ray Diffraction Technique
Kidney stone disease is a common health problem in industrialized nations. A better understanding of the physio-chemical principles underlying the formation of kidney stone has led to a need for more precise information on the chemical composition of stones. A combined qualitative procedure for the chemical analysis of renal stone which is suitable for routine use is presented. The procedure involves two qualitative tests i.e. biochemical tests and X-ray diffraction. Through these tests we are determining the elements present in the renal stone and we can suggests people to avoid those food stuffs in which the elements present similar to kidney stone so that recurrence in future will be avoided.
