I haven't ever had them and don't want to either, my dh and my bf had them and they say it is worse than having a baby! I just was reading a article in a email that was sent to me about these pesky little buggers and wanted to post something it said in the article.
Q. How can I avoid getting kidney stones?
A. The No. 1 way to avoid painful kidney stones is to drink more fluids. This will better balance the salt and minerals in your body, making it difficult for stones to form. Eating more fiber and calcium rich foods â€“ and eating less beef, pork, poultry and salty foods â€“ can also make a difference.
