If you have suffered from kidney stones in the past, you are higher risk of forming additional stones in the future. The chance of getting new stones can be up to 80 percent. It is possible to decrese the risk by taking preventive measures like making changes in your diet and lifestyle.
I put together a list of “8 ways to avoid kidney stones” that can help you to prevent kidney stones.
1. Drink lots of water every day.
Lack of fluids is one of the common reasons why people get kidney stones. Drink lots of water, it keeps you healthy and hydrated, and will help you to flush out various minerals that can form to stones.
Drink at least six to eight glasses of water every day and make it your habit.
2. Mix lemon juice with water.Lemon helps to dissolve kidney stones, also it is a good kidney stone preventer. Lemon is high in citric acid. Citric acid boost the level of citrate in urine which will reduce the crystallization of uric acid and calcium oxalate minerals in kidneys.
Take one or two lemons and squeeze the juice into glass of water and drink it straight once a day.
3. Drink orange juice.
Like lemon, orange is also rich in citric acid, and will help to prevent recurring uric acid and calcium stones. One UT Southwestern Medical Center study shows that a glass of orange juice is more beneficial than other citrus fruit juices such as lemonade.
Drink glass of orange juice each day to prevent kidney stones.
4. Eat fewer foods that are rich in oxalate content.
Foods like chocolate, nuts, beets, spinach, sweet potatoes, soy sauce, sesame seeds are high in oxalate and can cause calcium oxalate kidney stones formation.5. Limit your red meat consumption.
Meat, especially red meat are rich in animal protein. Animal protein in red meat contains high level of purines which can cause kidney stones.
People who eat regularly large quantities of red meat are more likely to form uric acid stones.
6. Don’t eat salty foods.
Eating too much salt can promote calcium kidney stone formation, because the kidneys retain the sodium in salt, and the sodium will excrete more calcium into the urine.
By reducing the amount of salt (sodium) intake, will reduce the calcium excretion into the urine.
7. Avoid refined sugar consumption.
Excessive consumption of refined sugar, including foods and drinks rich in sugars stimulates your body to release more insulin, which causes more calcium excretion into the kidneys.
8. Eat calcium rich foods.
Previously there was an understanding, that dietary rich in calcium can lead to kidney stones. New studies show that calcium rich dietary doesn’t have an effect on kidney stones. It is low level of calcium in your body, that can lead to calcium stones.Eat calcium rich foods instead of calcium supplements. Calcium supplements may increase the risk of getting kidney stones.
