The blood then runs through tiny filtering units of the kidney, called nephrons.

When there is not enough water to dilute the uric acid (component of urine), the pH level within the kidney drops and becomes more acidic. An excessively acidic environment in the kidneys is conducive to the formation of kidney stones.
