Hi! I’m Stonesaurus, but everyone just calls me Rocky, and I have Medullary Sponge Kidney (MSK) which basically means Chronic Kidney Stones. I like the color gray. I think Dan is pretty cool, so I’d say he’s my best friend. I avoid foods like 🍫chocolate, 🥜nuts, and even 🥗spinach to help prevent kidney stones.

So what causes kidney stones anyway? Well, I asked my doctor 🩺 and this is what he told me:
Factors that increase your risk of developing kidney stones include:

  • Family or personal history. If someone in your family has kidney stones, you’re more likely to develop stones, too.
  • Dehydration
  • Certain diets
  • Being obese
  • Digestive diseases and surgery
  • Other medical conditions
