In brief: Stones and protein

In general, high protein diets are not great for people who make kidney stones.
There are many reasons for this. A normal protein diet is most beneficial. However, everyone is diferent, and you may benefit from specific tests that your urologist can perform that may allow him/her to more specifically tailor a diet that will maximize your health and minimize your risk of more stones.
