Kidney stones in pilots

Hi everyone!
I just wanted to know if there are any pilots who have had problems with kidney stones. I haven't had any kidney stones yet ( I'm 18) but, my father and grandfather, both have had kidney stones in the past(my dad's had 3 yet, he's 50). I believe this puts me at a higher risk, and I'm doing my best to avoid them. Has anyone had a problem like this? Will this prevent me from getting a medical to fly commercially?
Thanks
