KIDNEY STONES: CAUSE AND PREVENTIONS
January 20, 2021, 06:02:44 AM »
Kidney stones often have no definite, single cause, although several factors may increase your risk.
Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances ó such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid ó than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form.
The best way to prevent kidney stones is to make sure you drink plenty of water each day to avoid becoming dehydrated.
1. Drink sufficient amount of water.
2. Avoid fizzy drinks.
3. Donít eat too much salt.
4. Eat less sodium.
5. Eat fewer oxalate-rich foods.
6. Eat less animal protein.
7. Eat citrus fruits. Lemons and limes are high in citrate, which helps prevent kidney stones.
