Kidney Stones Linked To Heart Disease In Women

Women who have had kidney stones are at an increased risk for developing heart disease or another cardiac issue, a new study says.

What can you do to help prevent kidney stones?  Make sure you have enough potassium in your body.  This mineral helps balance many different body processes. Adequate levels of potassium decrease the amount of calcium excreted in urine. This makes kidney stones less likely to form. It also helps protect bones from osteoporosis. Potassium may also enhance the action of insulin in the body.
Average adult consumption of potassium is now between 2,100 and 3,200 mg a day. Many adults consume considerably less. Although some researchers suggest 2,500 to 3,500 mg as a good target for adults to aim for, the latest federal dietary recommendations encourage a daily potassium intake of 4,700 mg.
To get more potassium, concentrate on eating more vegetables and fruits. The forms of potassium found in these plant foods are preferable to the forms of potassium found in grains, meats, dairy foods and supplements.
