Know Your Stones...Protect Your Kidneys (cont.)

If you have any health conditions, speak with your physician before making any drastic changes in your diet. Also keep in mind that you could have stones that appear after you make your changes in your diet. This does not mean that the diet did not work; it means that the stones were there before, so you would need to give your diet more time to see if it works.
