: I have a friend who for the past 6 years has had chronic kidney stones. It all started when she was pregnant
: with her second child. She developed stones while pregnant. So far she has had 19 lithotripsies, takes uric acid
: pills every day and drinks nothing but bottled water. We've heard its a southern thing(kidney belt). Is there
: anyone out there with similar problems that knows of any other methods of controlling them. She has had so much pain
: medicine over the past six years that on morphine helps. This is not good.
---My Dad had this same problem. He had a screwed up parathyroid. Once they took out the parathyroid he hasn't had a kidney stone since.
