Diagnosis of a kidney stone can be quick and easy. The physician would enquire about the family history and will suggest some of the following tests.
Blood tests to find the creatinine level. Creatinine is transported through the bloodstream to the kidneys. The kidneys filter out most of the creatinine and dispose of it in the urine.

Normal value for creatinine in adult males ranges between 0.6 to 1.2 mgs, whereas adult females it is 0.5 to 1.1 mgs
