Distilled Water For Kidney Stones
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
Perhaps: 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It may, but the idea: 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.

Does distilled water and orange juice help kidney stones prevention? I can't find solid info for each way.
Here are some ...: a 5-mm kidney stone usually causes no discomfort as long as not detached from kidney to drop down to cause ureteral obstruction on its ways through ureter to bladder. On average, some 75-85% of a 4-mm stone will spontaneously pass to bladder in 2 weeks. And 95% of kidney stones could not be dissolved; if dissolvable, still take a tremendous personal and professional dedication to alkalize urine... ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not your best choice: Don't get your hopes up. Sodium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) (baking soda) is a poor alkalinizer of the urine as the body turns it into carbon dioxide (which is exhaled) and table salt; all you've done is sodium-load yourself. You'll have trouble getting calcium oxalate to dissolve in anything, but your urologist may try some other alkalinizer to perhaps help a uric acid stone; don't get your hopes up. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you explain?: "zits" in the kidney? You won't get acne in your kidneys, but pustules can form in acute pyelonephritis, a medical emergency. In some cases, the kidneys actually do look like they have developed acne. Dr. Fowler reminds me you may mean "cysts" -- if there are only a few, they are almost always harmless. ...Read more
What is drinking 8 oz water with juice of a 1/2 lemon suppose to accomplish for kidney stone patients?
Here are some ...: Forming crystals and stones is a constant process and the most important factor to prevent recurrence is keep the concentration of all stone ingredients in the urine for stone formation always below their threshold to form crystals. So, largely, keep 24-hr urine output > 2500 cc constantly. Drinking the fluid like lemon is to supply one of the known stone inhibitors - citrate; so, it may help... ...Read more

Not likely...: Electrolyte-containing Propel water would not help a stone pass through ureter to bladder although vigorous increase in urine excretion by increasing oral fluid or diuretics or alpha-blocker has been touted, but not firmly proved, to speed up stone passage for decades. In general, a <4-mm stone may pass in 2 wks for 75-85% of times. More? Seek evaluation/ counseling timely. ...Read more
NOT OKAY!!!: I don't think drinking soft drinks is ok for anyone! they have extremely high levels of sugar (esp. High fructose corn syrup) and if "diet" forms then have nutrasweet, which is even more toxic. Anyone who has any interest in being healthy should hardly ever drink this poison! and yes, the acidity worsens risk of kidney stones.
