Kidney stones – simple prevention tips

Often they are not discovered at all or only by chance. However, these small culprits can also be the cause of renal colic and severe pain in the back, lumbar region or lower abdomen area. In this case, medical treatment and pain therapy are necessary. A few simple tips can help prevent kidney stones, especially if you've had them before.

Our tip against crystallisation, which can lead to the formation of urinary stones:
Drink three litres of liquid throughout the day and before bedtime. In this way, the urine remains more diluted and can dissolve the mineral salts better. In addition, ensure you have plenty of exercise and a diet rich in fibre. Those affected should use salt sparingly and also avoid sweets and baked goods as much as possible. For a differentiated nutritional recommendation, it is necessary to analyse the type of stone.
