One of the replies suggests taking potassium citrate, which has helped prevent new kidney stones from forming. It's important to consult with your doctor for proper evaluation and treatment recommendations based on your specific situation and blood work results.

      Up the heck outta your water. Like 2 to 3 liters a day. Citrus like lemons is gonna be your BFF from here on out. Such as a potassium citrate they may scribe you. Or you can just keep continuinally adding more lemon juice in your water as your go .. Flomax is the absolute best med for opening/dialating your lil ureter to help pass em

      Magnesium supplement helps get rid of them. Whenever I start to feel that pain I take one and it's always gone in less than an hour.

      Be prepared for them to come out. As soon as you feel the pain in that kidney (on you lower back side on the right), cranberry juice and water, will help them get flushed out faster. It will feel like a razor burn through your pee hole lol And stop drinking evergy drinks.

      What did your doctor say? This is one where you might just want to be referred to a specialist. There are 4 different types (composition) of kidney stones. Different compisitions. Different sizes, different other issues you may have, all impact treatment choices. I just had mine in Sept. I read a lot. Talked to my dental hygienist as she just had too, plus still has 2 more in her kidneys. From what i read and from what she said, theres not much chance of dissolving the current ones. Acidic drinks like cranberry juice does help keep a more acidic urine and that helps reduce formation of most types of stones.

        @55isMe Ps. Potassium is very hard on the kidneys. Too much is bad for the kineys. Too little or too much is bad for the heart

      Funny fact, milk is actually helpful to prevent the more typical type of kidney stones. You would think calcium would be bad but no.

        @55isMe I’ve heard that before! I’m gonna start drinking milk I guess

      they gave me a giant list of what not to drink or eat, my downfall was lots of energy drinks that triggered it...but then turned out it runs in family beside that lol Kidney stones are mainly made up of calcium deposits your system can't break down, so it collects it in your "filter/kidney".

      It is important to consult with your doctor or a nephrologist for proper evaluation and treatment. They may recommend increasing water intake, making dietary changes, or prescribing medications to help manage kidney stones and improve kidney function. Regular follow-ups and monitoring of blood work are also essential to track your progress.
