The only stone type that can dissolve once it is formed is uric acid. You would like confirmation that it is indeed the stone you have before attempting dissolution therapy with potassium citrate or sodium bicarbonate. A clue would be a low urine pH (<6) in the absence of a stone analysis confirming it is uric acid. Another clue would be that stone is not seen on xray but is seen on CT scan or ultrasound.
