Brief Answer:
Dehydration is the primary cause leading to form urinary stones .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up .

Dehydration is the primary and important factor that leads to formation of urinary stones .

The precise nature of the stone whether it is uric acid stone , phosphate stone or mixed stone can not be determined only on ultrasound studies.
The stone has to be collected when one passes it out through urine and send it to laboratory for analysis.

Urine test and blood tests may give gross idea about nature of stone .

Thanks and Regards.

Thanks, Doctor XXXXXXX for this information, Reply in BOLD

The precise nature of the stone whether it is uric acid stone, phosphate stone or mixed stone cannot be determined only on ultrasound studies ----- OK

A urine test and blood tests may give a gross idea about nature of stone ---- NAME OF TEST WHICH I CAN CARRY OUT.

As explained above, I started drinking 1-liter of water in moring from last 20 days, so I'm eager to find out the reason for this cause.
