In brief: Stone composition

Is needed to determine diet modifications.
90 % of kidney stones can be prevented using combination of diet and drug therapy. Calcium oxalate stone - avoid vitamin c, grapefruit juice, dark colas uric acid stones: avoid berries, beer, animal protein.

In brief: Depends

There are different types (composition) of stones and the dietary recommendations differ. Most recommend drinking sufficient fluid to make 2 liters of urine daily.
This is true regardless of composition.
