MASTER Kidney Stone Nutrition

Let's face it, most dietitians don't know very much about kidney stone nutrition.

Did you know that nutrition for effective kidney stone prevention is NOT based on kidney stone type? Instead, nutrition should be personalized to 24-hour urine test results.

A 24-hour urine test reveals WHY your patients have kidney stones. With that knowledge, you can tailor an individualized kidney stone prevention plan!
