I've Wondered This Too
Most kidney stones are composed of calcium.I just found out that I have a kidney stone. I have to taste cheese as part of my job so I probably get more calcium than I need every day. I wondered if that made me more suspestible.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Most of the kidney stones have calcium while milk is the richest source of calcium.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
