1. Kidney stones can be many different sizes.
Kidney stones can be the size of a pea or — although rare — can grow to the size of a golf ball.
2. Water can stave off stones
According to Keck Med, water intake is the single most important dietary risk factor for kidney stone formation. Not drinking enough water is estimated to play a role in 50% of kidney stones.
3. Once you have one stone, you’re more likely to have another.
One kidney stone may not be all you ever have in your lifetime, either. If you’ve had one, you have a 50% risk of developing another in the next five years.
