Can urinary frequency indicate a renal stone?


Answer by  HawaiianGirl (6906)

Yes urinary frequency can indicate a few problems such as a renal stone or even a urinary track infection among other problems. It is best to check with your doctor.


Answer by  jugermaut (89)

Urinary frequency is not one of the symptoms that indicate a renal stone. Urine volume, however, is one the indication, along with Hematuria, colic pain, or pain when urinating.


Answer by  Connie45 (1110)

Urinary frequency is more often a symptom of a urinary tract infection or diabetes. It can also be caused by BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy) in men. Other causes of frequent urination are overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, prostate cancer, congestive heart failure, multiple myeloma, and fibromyalgia. It also occurs post kidney stones.

In some cases it might indicate this. However, it is more common to have a decrease in urinary frequency with renal stones. If you suspect renal stones, it is always best to talk to your physician.

If you are urinating between once every hour to once every five minutes you may be a victim if a renal stone.

Rather than urinary frequency, common symptoms of renal stones are difficulty or urgency urinating, blood in the urine or the onset of severe pain in the abdomen, back or groin.
