Kidney stone: This size kidney stone can shrink or it can grow. To get this to shrink, you must follow a very careful diet and fluid plan. Essential components are: drink 4 liters per day; drink at least one quart of strong lemonade per day; eat very little salt; minimize animal protein; add 4 servings of tropical fruit per day; avoid tea, chocolate, spinach, kale, okra, rhubarb (all rich in oxalate).
