Kidney Stone Prevention

Dos of Kidney Stone Prevention, Reduce Salt and Animal Protein and Don’t Drink Too Much Sugar-Sweetened Beverages.

Kidney stones are hard deposits that form in the kidneys and can cause significant pain and discomfort. For kidney stone prevention, it is important to make certain lifestyle changes.

By following these dos, you can reduce your risk of kidney stone formation and maintain good kidney health. 

Dos of Kidney Stone Prevention:


The most important thing you can do to prevent kidney stones is to drink plenty of water.  Aim for at least 2 liters (8 cups) of water a day.

Calcium-Rich Foods:

Calcium is important for strong bones and teeth, but it also aids in kidney stone prevention. When you consume calcium from food, it binds with oxalate in the gut.

Limit Oxalate-Rich Foods:

Oxalate is a compound that is found in many foods, and when it accumulates in the kidneys, it can lead to the formation of stones.

High salt and animal protein intake can increase the amount of calcium in your urine, increasing the risk of stone formation.

Reduce Salt and Animal Protein:

Regular physical activity can help prevent kidney stones by promoting healthy weight and urine output.  At least do 30 minutes of moderate physical activity most days of the week.

Physical Activity:

Don’t Drink Too Much Sugar-Sweetened Beverages:

Soft drinks, sports drinks, and other sugar-sweetened beverages are high in sugar and can increase the risk of developing kidney stones.

Don’t Ignore Symptoms:

If you experience any symptoms of kidney stones, such as severe pain in your lower back or sides, nausea or vomiting, or frequent urination, seek medical attention promptly.
