If you have ever had a kidney stone, then you can probably agree that it is one of the worst pains you have ever had. If you have had a kidney stone, then you may want to do whatever it is that you can to make sure that you do not get another one. Here are some tips from the National Kidney Foundation to help prevent kidney stones:
Sweat is not always a bad thing. When you sweat a lot, you are losing a lot of water. Drinking plenty of water can help prevent kidney stones.
Oxalate is found in different kinds of foods, like fruits and vegetables. By including foods that are higher in oxalate, you can help to prevent kidney stones to be formed in the kidney.
Calcium is not necessarily bad for you. Instead you should cut back on sodium.
NOT ONE AND DONE
If you think that you have had one kidney stone, so you will not get another, then you are sadly mistaken. The truth is, if you have had a kidney stone before, then you are more likely to get another one. It is important that you listen to your doctor after you have had kidney stones. Follow the doctor’s advice on changes to your diet and medications.
Believe it or not, but juices that are high in natural citrate can help to prevent stones.
