To a large extent, sodium intake determines the amount of calcium excreted in the urine. People eating high-sodium foods are more prone to developing calcareous kidney stones than compared to those on a low-sodium diet. Less than 2300 mg per day is the ideal amount of salt and sodium-rich foods, though doctors may suggest different limits based on individual constitution. Avoiding processed or "fast" foods can significantly decrease sodium consumption, as can opting for seasonings other than salt when possible.
