    Unhappy Is there a way to deal with family history and genetic risk for kidney stones?

    After CT scan, Intravenous pyelogram and X-rays, it was found that a stone was 4.5 mm which stuck in ureter on right side. I was operated by uteroscopy with laser lithotripsy. The doctor had put the stent and discharged me to home with medications. The stone was made up of Calcium oxalate (90%) along with urate and cystine. I further visited hospitals for routine checkups. I had my stent removed after 4 weeks of operation. The doctor advised me to drink plenty of fluids and have some dietary restrictions. I was discharged with antibiotics, painkillers and anti-oxalate medicines.
    I am looking to have recommended lifestyle. But still how would I save myself to have such horrible tragedies again? As kidney stones can develop further involving a genetic risk and family history.

    I have read that drinking lemonade regularly will help. Something about it being acidic stops the stones from forming
