Can kidney stones be prevented?
Kidney stones can be prevented. Drinking lots of water can prevent high concentrations of salts and minerals in the urine, which lead to the formation of kidney stones. Simple changes to some of the foods you eat can also reduce the chance of developing some types of kidney stones. If you have had kidney stones in the past, finding out what type of stone you had may provide important information about how future stones can be prevented.
