What should I eat when you have kidney stone?

Low salt &drink lots

Kidney
Reduce salt intake, reduce or limit animal protein intake. Reduce other protein (eggs, fish meat) & oxalate containing foods (Nuts, spinach, rhubarb wheat bran) if calcium oxalate stones. Most important is to drink lots of water, aim for 10 glasses/day. Get enough calcium (milk & chhese is OK) They do not, and salt does, contribute to forming calcium stones.

Dr. Raj P. Singh answered:

What are good foods to eat or drink to make kidney stone smaller?

Plenty of water

Increase in water intake to have a urine output of more than 2.5 Liter is the only proven way of reducing risk of kidney stones. It is less likely for a established stone to become smaller over time, however modification in diet and risk factors can be helpful depending on the composition of stone.

What should I do if you can not eat or drink due to nausea from kidney stone pain?

Get treatment

Kidney
U should not get dehydrated, this may require intravenous flui therapy in hospital. Pain severe enough to cause nausea suggests kidney blockage or/& possible infection. Thus needs to be addressed, this could possibly mean temporary placement of JJ stent (small tube beween kidney & bladder) to allow kidney to drain. Urologist will advise appropriately.

How long after you pass a kidney stone should pain hang around i am scared to eat and not sure if it is all in my head if you know what i mean ?

No pain after stone

Low_back_pain
Usually there is complete relief from pain once you pass the stone Sometime the kidney stone is associated with infection and in that case there may be some discomfort but not the same pain you feel with a kidney stone If you have passed the stone or stones and do not have co existing infection,you should feel no pain now

Drink plenty of water. Catch the stone when you can and get it analyzed. Let us know if its calcium oxalate or some other forms of stone. Depending on the stone type, lemonade maybe beneficial. A blood test is advised.

Can happen-unlikely
