Mr. Perch gained firsthand knowledge of renal calculi when he was in his thirties.
According to Mr. Perch, renal calculi “are small, hard mineral deposits that can form inside our kidneys.” Renal calculi, or kidney stones can be fairly common. “They can be as small as a pinhead and larger than a pencil eraser. They also go by the name of renal lithalsas and nephrolithiasis.” Mr. Perch states that if the deposits remained in the kidneys, they would be painless. However, once they begin to move, the pain can become intense. After his experience, Mr. Perch offers some advice. He says to always visit your physician after passing a stone. To help prevent kidney stones, you should drink plenty of water, moderate your intake of oxalate, and consider a low purine diet. Howard Perch recommends consulting your physician on how to prevent kidney stones in the future.
