2. Dietary changes
What you eat and drink can play a role in how likely you are to develop kidney stones. But the good news is, it’s something you can control. Dietary changes will not cure a current kidney stone, but they can prevent future stones from forming. Although it can be difficult to make and stick with certain dietary changes, the thought of preventing the pain associated with kidney stones may be motivation enough. Consider decreasing salt and animal protein. Although you may not have to eliminate all red meat, you may want to limit it to a few servings a week or opt for smaller portions. Avoid high oxalate foods including chocolate, wheat, peppers and rhubarb.
