kidney stones/ renal failure

Posted by Kathy L. Facebook

my husband has a history of kidney stones.  he is 48 yrs old and this has been going on for 17 years off and on.  In that time he has had 6 kidney stone attacks passing stones.  The last attack was the worst he could not pass them without going to the hospital.  recently his breath has smelled like urine. it seems to be pretty strong, could this be renal failure or a blocked tube?

It's hard to say what it is, but ammonia/urine like breath can indicate really serious kidney problems. On the other side of the spectrum it could signal a lack of proprer nutrition when doing strenuous activity. He should talk to his doctor as soon as possible to rule out anything that could be seriously damaging.
