Hi Anonymous,
Great question! I ran it by some of our diabetes educators and nurse practioner specializing in endocrinology this morning ~ from our combined experience and knowledge base there doesn't appear to be a direct link between kidney stones and diabetes; however, there does appear to be a connection between diet, hydration and possibly vitamin D supplementation. For more information on kidney stone development and dietary & lifestyle prevention strategies check out the following link for the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse: http://1.usa.gov/16McMCW
