Beware: Summer Is The Season For Kidney Stones

This Sparked Me!

If you're prone to kidney stones, staying hydrated during summer months is your best option, say experts. Go easy on meat. A diet high in animal protein increases your risk of kidney stones & eating fast food more than twice a week ups your salt intake. Limit fast foods that are high in salt. Slice up some lemons and add them to your water, lemons have citrate, which is a kidney stone inhibitor. Add juicey fruits and drink lots of water.

    Thanks for the reminder. I do tend to get them. Last summer was the worst! Thanks again. :D

    Thankfully, I have never had a kidney stone, but I have a friend who has suffered with them. I will let him know what I learned here today, and hopefully this summer will be a lot more enjoyable to him.
