It is a genetic one: Adpkd a genetic disease is the most common form of cystic kidney disease. Usually it is transmitted from father or mother to siblings.

Drinking is good but: Drinking water is good but not the only answer. If you have any recurrent kidney stones or you have multiple stones you may need to do a 24 hour urine collection. After the urine test you may need to see a dietitian that will adjust your diet to decrease your risk of having other kidney stones. Depending on the stone composition you may need to be started on medications. Counsel a specialist.
