5 Habits For Prevention Of Kidney Stone

A kidney stone affects 1 out of every 10 people at some point in their lives. It does not means that they all need treatment.. Most kidney stones are asymptomatic unless they pass through your kidney and into your ureter, causing discomfort or pain. Kidney stones can be avoided if 5 basic practices are followed.

So, the 5 Habits are:

  1. Drink a lot of water

Drinking plenty of fluids is recommended when it comes to preventing kidney stones. Fluids dilute and increase the volume of the stone-forming substances in urine, making them less prone to crystallize.

  1. Increase citric acid intake

Citrus fruits, such as lemons and oranges, contain citric acid. Stone development and expansion are prevented by the juice from these fruits.

  1. Limit foods high in oxalates

Oxalate has the ability to bind calcium and other minerals, resulting in the formation of stone. Leafy green vegetables, such as spinach, contain oxalate.

  1. Decrease salt intake

Salt has a high amount of sodium, which causes stone formation by increasing calcium excretion through urine.

  1. Get enough Calcium

It’s a frequent misconception that lowering your calcium intake will lower your risk of developing calcium-containing stones. Calcium in the diet tends to bind with oxalate, preventing it from being absorbed. It isn’t necessary for the kidneys to pass it through the urine system.

Kidney Stones can be avoided by following these 5 simple habits. Please contact us if you have any questions about Kidney Stones. You can also contact us via our social media platforms, such as Facebook and YouTube.
