Kidney Stones - Prevention
Most people who have kidney stones have a 50% chance of developing another kidney stone within 10 years. But there are things you can do to lower your risk:

*drink at least 2 liters of fluids (water is best) per day

*do not eat more than 1, 500 mg of salt per day (about 1 teaspoon). This includes salt in pre-packaged food

*drink water after heating it or use purified water.
