A kidney stone is a hard mass that develops in the kidneys when salts and minerals crystallize out of the urine. They can also be caused by an infection in the urinary tract, called a struvite stone, though these are less common. Even less common are uric acid stones and the rare cystine stones. Stones can sometimes form very quickly, within hours and days in a kidney that is not functioning well. Usually though they form over a longer period of time. Most commonly, stones form from a combination of calcium and either oxalate or phosphate crystals. If you have chronic kidney stones you might also want to work with your parathyroid or at least get it checked.

Eating watermelon including the seeds helps aid the kidneys. Watermelon is helpful in cutting down on oxalic acid.
