Preventing Kidney Stones In Women
A new study gives women new reason to exercise, it could help cut your risk of kidney stones.
FOX News Radio’s Dave Anthony reports:
About one in eleven people will get a kidney stone in their life. How do you prevent one? Women are being advised to go for a walk or jog or even do some light gardening.
Researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle found women who get a little exercise a couple hours a week can cut the risk of getting a painful kidney stone by up to a third. And they don’t even have to break a sweat.
Obesity raises the risk, so does taking calcium supplements.
The study focused on women 50 and older. Even though kidney stones are a little more common in men, cases are rapidly rising in women.
