That could be a number of things.

- Diet/Lifestyle
- Runs in the family
- Body producing too much calcium

They usually ask you to strain your pee so you can catch a kidney stone and so they can see what kind it is. From there, they try coming up with some sort of treatment that will prevent future stones.

Hi. There could be so many causes. You need to find a Nephroligist and do some tests to really know the cause. They will do 24 hour urines that really help so much. If you are able to "catch" a stone do so than it can be analyzied to find what components it is made of..... Best Cara

PS ..... Treatment will depend on what the 24 hour urine bags show. There may be a medication for you!!! Cara
