Does barley water help with kidney stones?

It may, but the idea

Water
is to pass more fluids through kidneys to wash particles away. This may be achieved by just drinking excess of 2-3 liters (quarts) a day. Barley, causes diuresis (like beer) hence the reputation. But citrated fluids e.g. Limeade, crystal lite, fresca, add citrate to urine which prevents particle aggregation making stones. I prefer the latter drinks. If CHF, fluid intake needs Doctor supervision.

Can drinking water help pass my kidney stone?

Perhaps

Diabetic_kidney_problems
One of the treatments for kidney stones involves increasing the flow through the kidneys, and water may help some, but an IV of saline (salt water) increases it much more. Drinking salt water is not usually well tolerated, but large volumes of oral or IV fluids that contain various salts and water may help if the stone is not attached or stuck in the ureter.

Dr. William Poston answered:

Can you get kidney stones from drinking well water?

Thanks for asking!

Kidney_stones
This depends on the mineral constituents of the well water and your family history. Renal stones tend to run in families and are often due to subtle abnormalities in various biochemical metabolic pathways. This could make a person susceptible to stones depending on the make up of the well water. Well water should always be tested if individuals have had or have a family history of stones.

How much should we drink Water to avoid kidney stone?

> 2 L of urine/day

Kidney
Need to have an overall fluid intake to achieve a urine output of at least 2,000 mls/24 hours. It is dependent on your activity, environment, clothing, ........ The average soldier in Desert Storm needed 3-12 gallons of water per day. Travel, especially on an airplane, requires additional fluids: why do you think the flight attendents are always offering you water.
