Is having kidney stones considered having a kidney disease?

Post date: June 3, 2013

Recurrent kidney stones can cause chronic kidney disease (CKD).  KIdney stones is a form of kidney disease but does not always cause CKD.  If the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) falls to less than 60 milliliters per minute per 1.73 meters squared, or if blood or protein end up in the urine, and is present for more than 3 months, then it qualifies for CKD.
