i found nothing on kidney stones but have found articles on other chemicals in imported food and pharmaceuticals prodcuts which can cause kidney damage. Since these other chemicals have a wide range symptoms not jus kidney failure they cant be a chemical causing kidney stones.
I gona do bit more research n il get bak to u.
Glad you are looking into this and learning about kidney stones. I am not sure there is a problem but do click on the link I left re the dog food and the kidney stones.

Ouch! I'm so glad they got whatever they were OUT. No fragments is a good thing. I have had (small) kidney stones and what they call "gravel" or fragments joining together is one explanation of why they form. I was told to keep fluids up (non-acoholic ones!) and to, oddly enough, drink the water of brewed watermelon seeds. Could be an old wives tale..it certainly sounds like you and your fellow inpatients are going through something slightly strange there. I sincerly hope they get to the bottom of it. Stay well and take care.
