...there exist not many good and effective treatments to effectively reduce the incidence of stone formation...
I see the comment by freebase in this light - a..."effective treatments" as proposed by rpenner....
...This is why I reflected on rpenners post, I find it a very dubious comment to say:
...Perhaps my cultural background coming from Scandinavia -...
Define "treatment" for Scandinavian:
English-"treatment"- cure procedure for disease already contracted
As opposed to "prevention":
English-"prevention"- health habits to avoid
disease from being contracted.
Having enough drinking water in the day (note: we are having this conversation at mid-summer) can prevent the onset of many health issues, including kidney stones.And lastly, from the National Institute of Health:
"...Your doctor may ask you to eat more of some foods and to cut back on other foods. For example, if you have a uric acid stone, your doctor may ask you to eat less meat, because meat breaks down to make uric acid.
If you are prone to forming calcium oxalate stones, you may need to limit foods that are high in oxalate. These foods include rhubarb, beets, spinach, and chocolate..."
"...I am not overtly convinced about the value of telling everyone "to see a doctor..."
About as much as you seemly are not overtly convinced about the value of doing a little research on your own. Sinking in there a little, airhead?

Being a layman, I can't tell a uric acid stone from a calcium oxalate stone -- especially before the stone has passed. I would suggest you go to some sort of trained professional for the distinction. Oh, wait. Aren't doctors exactly that type of trained professional, even in Scandinavia?

Obviously not everybody is a fan of rpenner. This is O.K as long as it's on academic matters backed by sound researched arguments. But when it's fired by rank envy it is just embarrassing. To say the least.

Pharmaceutical Companies have much incommon with Tablet Companies.
Sell it! don’t smell it!, the product is irrelevant, pitch the produce, make as much money from third party misrepresentational testimonials, deceptive claims
Tablet Companies pitch produce to sound the best, to look the best, contracting the buyer to a 3 year fixed plan to prevent say a lap top fan from ditching their super-hyped produce when they begin to notice the glitches. Those glitch/side-effects in both industries are down played with deliberate misinformation to make as much profits as possible from the buyer locked into legal contract course which they have to complete before free without penalties clauses. Tablet Companies with flaws foot the blame to a miteglowsoftware glitch. Then design misinformation/glamorous patches to cover up the flaws in the product
Pharmaceutical Companies design just as many side-effects `invalid medicautions’ as much as noside-effect `valid medicautions’
Pharmaceutical Companies claim all medications have some side-effects if taken incorrectly. They deliberately claim some glitches `in the basis of production’, lead to with produce inferior quality, but cheaper so hey; Sell it! Don’t smell it! Beat your cash register tills, That’ll….Huh? Buy it, because you’ll never get better, it a bargan.
GSK associated with avandia will be shown as the beginning cover-ups exposed (Just as `Beep***E sort of cover-ups’ are being exposed in the Gulf Gulf) of massive biological-anatomical damage caused by Pharmaceutical Companies produce side-effect)
Pharmaceutical Companies do their own substance trials, the misrepresent side-effect as diseases, If they damage your liver function with their produce, they would say you are genetically prone to developing diabetes.
