Cystinuria

  • Alternative Names

    Stones - cystine; Cystine stones


    Prevention

    There is no known prevention for cystinuria. Any person with a known history of stones in the urinary tract should drink plenty of fluids to regularly produce a high amount of urine. This allows stones and crystals to leave the body before they become large enough to cause symptoms.
