I am posting here on behalf of my roommate. She has had approximately 20 kidney stones over the past year. Before a year ago, she had never had a kidney stone. She has been to two doctors and neither of them have been very helpful. Her body is continuously forming new stones. Her diet is normal and even when it has been altered to avoid kidney stones, she still forms them. No family history is present. I am basically writing here as a last resort. It’s difficult watching my friend suffer and constantly being told she has to live with having kidney stones the rest of her life. She’s only 28 for crying out loud! Please, if anyone has any suggestions, I’m listening.
