Lemonade To Cure Kidney Stones

Web Desk (June 25, 2018): If life gives you kidney stones, make some lemonade.

New research shows that lemonade is an effective — and delicious — way for kidney-stone-prone people to slow the development of new stones.“When treating patients in our kidney stone center, we put everyone on lemonade therapy,” says Steven Y. Nakada, chair, and professor of urology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Nakada spoke during a news conference on kidney stone research at this week’s annual meeting of the American Urological Association in Atlanta.If you’ve ever passed a kidney stone, you won’t forget the sudden, intense pain in your flank. Some patients compare the pain with that of childbirth.Kidney stones form when urine in the kidney becomes supersaturated with stone-forming salts — and when the urine doesn’t contain enough stone-preventing substances. One of these substances is citrate.
