Water: You should make between 2 and 4 liters of urine daily, add some lemon juice to the water, and reduce the amount of animal protein that you eat. All these dietary changes are helpful, but may not completely stop your stone formation.

Need full evaluation: This includes 24 hr urine test for calcium, creatinine & citrate. Drink lots of water including glass or 2 before bed so you get up at night to urinate and drink another glass at that time. Reduce salt intake & avoid stay foods as much as poss. Reduce red meat intake. Daily, low caorie citrus drink worthwhile. May require daily hydrochlorthiazide if calcium excretion is > 4mg/kg/24 hours.
