Who gets kidney stones?

Anyone can get kidney stones, but some people are more likely to develop kidney stones than others. These include people who have a close family member who have had kidney stones and have a past history of a kidney stone. People who are obese, do not drink enough water and have a diet that is high in fat, protein or salt are also more likely to develop kidney stones.
