Other signs of formation of kidney stone are vomiting, fever and chills, urine has irritating smell, it appears cloudy and there is the feeling of burning while exerting the urine.

If you are feeling the symptoms of the kidney stones, it is important to consult a recognized physician. Take note also that preventing remedies should start from home. For preventing kidney stones, below are some precautionary measures should be adapted by a patient.

A patient with kidney stone must get used to the habit of drinking too much water.

Second, every patient should eat lots of nutritious food like fruits and vegetables. Eating large quantities of fruits and vegetables provides you with lots of vitamins, minerals, and other beneficial nutrients; however, some of these foods also provide oxalates, which you may need to go easy on if you have a tendency toward kidney-stone formation.

That’s because the body converts this vitamin to oxalate. The suggested dietetic allowance of vitamin C for men is 90mg and for women it should be 75 mg per day.

Try to moderate your meat and certain fish intake because the proteins that we get from animal meat give speed to the shaping of uric acid and calcium in the urine. That causes the formation of kidney stone in your urine.
