Condition - Kidney Stones

Ureterolithiasis

By Nutri People

Kidney Stones are made of mineral salts and generally form when urine is too alkaline or blood levels of the minerals are too high. Risk factors include a diet high in: sugar, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, coffee, animal protein, salt, saturated fat and fizzy drinks; and low in: fibre, potassium, magnesium and vitamin B6. Excessive intake of minerals that form the stone, particularly calcium, is also a risk factor. It is essential to reduce intake of risk minerals, as advised by a doctor, and increase water intake
