Passing a kidney stone can be an uncomfortable or even painful process. Pero good news! There are ways to prevent kidney stones from forming through simple lifestyle changes.

Here’s how:

Water dilutes substances in your urine which can lead to kidney stone formation. Doctors recommend drinking at least eight glasses of water a day. Drinking natural citrus beverages like lemonade or orange juice can also help.

Step 2: Get enough calcium
As much as possible, obtain enough calcium through food. Kausapin ang iyong doktor para malaman how much calcium you need on a daily basis.

Step 3: Avoid sodium-rich food
Kapag masyadong mataas ang sodium levels ng diet mo, this can cause kidney stones. Limit your daily intake to a maximum of 1,500 to 2,300 mg.

Step 4: Avoid animal protein
‘Wag masyadong kumain ng red meat, chicken, eggs at seafood.
