To improve ureteral stones or kidney stones, Zhou Gu said that medicines and drinking more water can help eliminate them. Some stones can be broken up by extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy and then discharged. When a stone causes obstruction or severe pain, a ureteroscope may be used to crush or remove the stone, and a ureteral catheter may be left in place to keep the ureter open and allow the stone to pass. . If kidney stones are found, flexible ureteroscopy may be used to remove them all together.

If the color becomes darker, you should refill the water. If the color turns light yellow, it means you have enough water.
