Weekly Health Tips

FEWER KIDNEY STONES

Posted: 03.21.2018
Kidney stones are small, hard mineral deposits that form in the kidneys and are very painful to pass. Stones often form when urine becomes too concentrated. This allows minerals to crystallize and stick together. If you have had kidney stones before, you are more likely to get them again. Drink plenty of water, get adequate calcium, reduce sodium, limit intake of animal protein, lose excess weight and reduce intake of stone-forming foods. Ask your doctor or dietitian which foods to avoid or eat less often.
