How to prevent kidney stones?

I read this horrible thread on a board. I’m now terrified. How to prevent them aside from drinking water?

Also my cousin drinks about 3 cans of Diet Pepsi and about one bottle of water per day. He also eats some salty snacks at times and eats mostly beef for dinner. Is he at risk??

    If you have kidney stones, your doctor or dietitian may talk with you about an eating plan to help prevent new stones. The most common types of kidney stones are calcium and oxalate. Each type may require a different eating plan. There are certain foods you can have, and other foods you should avoid, to reduce the chance that you will get kidney stones again.

    Key points

    If you had kidney stones before, you are more likely to get them again. But by following the eating plan your doctor or dietitian suggests, you may prevent new kidney stones.
    Drink plenty of water. The most common cause of kidney stones is not drinking enough fluids, especially water.
