Diet to Get Rid of Kidney Stone and CystIt is not rare to get kidney stone and kidney cyst at the same time. Diet can help you slow down the progression of the illness condition. Here is a general guidance. For specific advice, you are welcomed to email to or leave a message below.

● Fluid

Staying well hydrated by drinking enough water is one of the best measures you can take. To lessen your risk of forming a new stone, it is very important that you drink at least 2,000 to 2,500 ml of water in the day. In hotter weather, you may need to drink more to make up for fluid loss from sweating. This will help keep your urine less concentrated. Less concentrated urine reduces the risk of stone formation.

● Sodium

Too much sodium can lead to swelling and high blood pressure. A reduction of salt intake to <6 g sodium per day is generally advised for patients with kidney disease.

There are somethings you can do to limit the sodium intake:

- Do not add salt to your food when cooking or eating. Try cooking with fresh herbs, lemon juice or other salt-free spices.

- Choose fresh or frozen vegetables instead of canned vegetables. If you do use canned vegetables, drain and rinse them to remove extra salt before cooking or eating them.

- Avoid processed meats like ham, bacon, sausage and lunch meats.

- Avoid pickled foods, like olives and pickled.

- Limit high-sodium condiments like soy sauce, BBQ sauce and ketchup.

● Protein

High-quality protein intake is helpful. You can add egg white, fish, milk on your diet, and avoid pant protein foods such as beans and bean products.

● Calcium

Studies have shown that limeade, lemonade and other fruits and juices high in natural citrate. It is believed that citrate in the urine may prevent the calcium from binding with other constituents that lead to stones.

Except for these restrictions and recommendations, you may also need to take some diet changed. Consult your dietitian to design a personalized diet.
