In brief: Hydration

Good hydration is the key.
If you drink enough fluid to maintain a urine output of 2.5 liters a day, the risk of developing another stone drops by about 90%.

In brief: Stones

The risk of a 2nd stone in 7 years is 50%, stone analysis is single best test, a 24 hour urine test along with blood work helps define reason for stone formation, then there are simple things, if no medical issues, drink 2L of water in 24hr, decrease salt in diet, (sodium), and see a kidney doc.
Hope this helps.
