Laurie, I'm so glad you posted this. I just learned more about the multidisciplinary approach of the Kidney Stone clinic at Mayo Clinic AZ. Patients are seen by a urologist, nephrologist, and a dietician. In my opinion, the addition of the dietician is so critical. I had a kidney stone (much to my surprise) and after it was passed, most of my questions focused on diet and lifestyle. What caused me to have a kidney stone in the first place and what could I do to prevent them in the future. Most of the answers for me were linked to movement (I sit at a computer too much), hydration, and some modifications to my diet.
