Drink fluids

When you are passing a kidney stone, you need to drink enough water to keep your urine light yellow or clear like water, about 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. If you have kidney, heart, or liver disease and are on fluid restrictions, talk with your doctor before drinking more fluids.


Kidney Stone Home Remedy

Prevention is always the preferable way to treat kidney stones. Remaining well hydrated keeps the urine dilute and helps prevent kidney stones from forming.

Those who have never passed a kidney stone may not appreciate the severity of the symptoms. There is little a person can do at home to control the debilitating pain and vomiting that can occur with a kidney stone other than to seek emergency care. If this is the first episode and no previous diagnosis has been established, it is important to be seen by a health-care provider to confirm the diagnosis.

For those who have a history of stones, home therapy may be appropriate. Most kidney stones, given time, will pass without treatment, and treatment is directed toward symptom control. The patient should be instructed to drink plenty of oral fluids. pain killers may be used as an anti-inflammatory medication if there is no contraindication to its use (under doctor's supervision). 

Please note, if a fever is associated with the symptoms of a kidney stone, this becomes an emergency, and medical care should be accessed immediately. Urinary tract infections associated with a kidney stone often require urgent assessment and may need intervention by a doctor to remove or bypass the stone.
