First of all, let me just say that you can never know what causes a kidney stone unless it is analyzed by the proper doctors. I am 37yrs old and I have had 2 lithotrypsies and both stones were way different from each other. I developed the first one when I was pregnant, found out after I had my son, that it was constructed of sodium (salt). My second one came 10-11 years later and was made up of calcium oxilate (not even close to dairy). The second one ended up giving me a list of at least 50 foods and drinks I had to avoid. And the list was strange because the whole list didnt fit together. EX.... chocolate, okra, ground black pepper, seeded berries, green beans....SEE WHAT I MEAN. The best thing you can do for any kidney stones is cranberry juice, cranberry pills, and ABSOLUTELY making sure your diets are all in moderation. Remember folks....this is a true statement..once a kidney stone carrier...ALWAYS a kidney stone carrier. I pass 3-5 stones every month. Told you my list was big.
