Beware: Summer Is The Season For Kidney Stones



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 - by SFARLOW12HME
  • 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. - by JELLYBELLY221
