Dehydration & Kidney Stones


Did you know that dehydration is the biggest risk factor for kidney stones. 

There are several types of kidney stones but calcium stones are the most common. These types of stones are created when calcium combines with 1 of 3 substances to form the stone, most often with a substance called oxalate.   Source: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000458.htm#Prevention


Oxalate is present in many foods, some with higher levels than others. Some low oxalate foods that you can enjoy include: green tea, apple cider, raisins, avocados, bing cherries, grapes, melons, fish (not sardines), cucumber, cauliflower, shellfish, poultry.
