Complete Guide to Risk Factors, Symptoms & Treatment Options
One in 10 individuals will suffer from kidney stones at some point in their life. Composed of hard, painful mineral deposits forming inside the kidneys, these stones are both crippling and potentially chronic.
Thankfully, patients can take action to reduce their chances of developing or redeveloping kidney stones by following a good diet, observing proper self-care, and adopting a comprehensive wellness plan. To that end, Living with Kidney Stones offers the most up-to-date information on this illness, paired with heartfelt insight from an actual kidney stone sufferer.
Living with Kidney Stones also includes easy-to-understand information on types and causes of kidney stones, the latest information on kidney stone testing, traditional and alternative options for a broad, full-body approach to wellness, guidance on self-care techniques for patients and caregivers, and valuable medical and community resources for kidney stone sufferers.
Learning to manage your risk factors for kidney stones can seem overwhelming, but by taking everything one day at a time and making sure you’re provided with the care and support you need, you can minimize your risk while maximizing your quality of life. Don’t just live with kidney stones—live well.
