Children should not make kidney stones. Here at Children’s Health℠, we see about 300 new pediatric patients each year with their first kidney stone. Children with stones need careful, personalized testing and treatment designed specifically for their medical problem that is causing them to make stones.
Why do children have kidney stones? Will smart water bottles reduce kidney stones in children and adults?
Children’s Health is participating in a national clinical trial investigating the impact of hydration on children and adults with a history of kidney stones. The two-year study is underway and enrollment is now open to participants 12 years and older who have access to a smart phone and a history of kidney stones.
