How can I prevent hydronephrosis?
Since hydronephrosis is caused by an underlying condition, prevention depends on avoiding or promptly treating the cause. For instance, the chance of developing a kidney stone may be reduced by changing to a oxalate controlled diet and staying well-hydrated. Some medications may be prescribed for patients who are prone to developing kidney stones.
Seek treatment immediately if you experience severe pain in the side or abdomen, vomiting, or a fever above 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit.
