New research has shown that the consumption of bananas, cucumbers, mushrooms and apricots could help recurrent incidents of kidney stones. The new study into the dietary changes show people can themselves reduce the risk of kidney stones coming back. It has found that eating calcium and potassium-rich foods could help.
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic in America set out to examine the impact dietary changes can have on a single incident of kidney stones, compared to the effect on recurring episodes. For people who have had one episode, they have a 30% chance of having kidney stones again within a five-year period.
Other foods high in calcium and potassium include oranges, grapefruits, cantaloupes, honeydew melons, potatoes, peas, and zucchini.
