- Kidney Stones can be prevented by drinking 8 to 12 glasses of water every day and by drinking fluids with meals. It is important to drink enough fluids so that urine appears almost colorless.
- Dietary restriction which includes cutting down on the amount of calcium, protein, salt, purine-rich food in the diet for people who harbor the risks of developing Kidney stones.
- Medications which are composed of calcium should be taken carefully and only under the guidance of a proper physician and should be supplemented by enough fluid intake to flush out excess calcium from the body.
- Obesity is linked to decreased urinary pH and other metabolic disorders which in turn precipitate the formation of kidney stones. Maintaining optimal weight is key to preventing Kidney stones.
