If you’re suffering from kidney stones, there may be ways for you to prevent them.

 

The Mayo Clinic states that drinking a lot of fluids -- preferably water -- helps in preventing stones, and getting enough calcium.

 

The hospital’s website also recommends limiting your meat intake to about 6 to 8 ounces and to avoid consuming too much vitamin D.

 

Another tip from the Mayo Clinic is that if you suffer from a digestive condition, do not eat too many foods that contain oxalates.
