Common Questions and Answers about Dissolve kidney stones lemon juice


Avatar m tn what happened if i use the lemon juice in my routine.
Avatar f tn I was informed that drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice with water will also help to dissolve any oxalate stones that may be forming. As you have had/still have calcium oxalate stones, your risk of getting more kidney stones is much increased. Avoid the foods mentioned and browse the web for more information on oxalate rich foods that you should avoid or eat less of. It is also very important to always stay well hydrated.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with kidney stones almost 3 years ago but I did not get them removed as my Dr told me they could not kill me or cause any life threatening diseases, but recentley I have noticed a little bit of stomach discomfort, I would like to say pain but it doesnt hurt , it kind of feels like something is there like gas, and my stomach gurgles a little bit and once in a while I will feel a little bit of a slight pinching pain in different spots over my belly , it feels like its through the b
Avatar m tn Lemon juice has the highest levels of citrate of any citrus juice, and that citrate helps dissolve any calcium deposits that will eventually turn into kidney stones. Squeeze your own fresh lemons to make lemonade, or buy a commercial mix. Doctors say that you can get as much citrate as you need from regular old lemonade, without having to make your teeth curl by sucking on a raw lemon.
Avatar n tn Just sharing some info that I got from another forum. Lemon juice, olive oil, and chanca piedra are the most common remedies to flush out kidney stones. You can Google them for more information.
Avatar m tn Some people say that drinking lemon juice helps to dissolve the stones, but I do not know if this is so. Your doctor will probably prescribe pain killers in the event you need them and will observe how you are getting on. It can take months for the stone/s to move. He will probably order a special xray to see exactly what is happening inside and whether to do anything or to leave it. In the event you start to feel very ill with a lot of pain, seek medical attention.
Avatar n tn Every time it moved I was very ill. Some people say to drink lemon juice or lemonade or coke products to dissolve the stone, but I cannot say for certain if this works or not. As your sides are still hurting randomly it is likely that the stone is moving. Only an ultra sound or special dye xray will confirm where the stone is lodged. Very tiny grains of stone don't get pick up on ultra sound. It also depends on which type of stone you have.
Avatar n tn I have had people say that drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice with water will help to dissolve kidney stones. I do drink lots of water and water with fresh lemon juice (freshly squeezed) and do notice that when I get kidney pain and start to drink the lemon water, I do notice more sediment in the urine. A kidney stone can be as small as a grain of sand. 20 years ago when my stone was surgically removed, I was told to avoid all dairy, but since then the information has changed.
Avatar f tn Ask you Doctor about Magnesium Citrate to dissolve the stones. Jessem166 is correct that lemon juice has been proven to help as well. Try asparagus to make you urinate more but it does make you urine smell funny. Don't eat it at dinner as this will make you get up allot and loose sleep.
Avatar m tn I have heard that drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice with water can help to dissolve kidney stones. I do drink this from time to time (with added honey sometimes with hot water to help with throat issues), but I do not know if this does actually dissolve kidney stones. Of course, it would also depend on the composition of your stone - what your stone is made of. If you experience a high fever, severe pain, nausea or vomiting - seek urgent medical attention.
Avatar n tn You can add the lemon juice to your tea or water each morning too. I've also heard drinking lemon juice about once each hour can help alleviate the pain. I hope you find relief soon. Good luck!!
Avatar n tn Since there are several posts on Kidney stones, Id like to share my research results that could possibly afford relief to kidney stone sufferers. Magnesium will dissolve kidney stones.... I am a recently retired ICU RN and I did not realize until now how important Magnesium is in our lives. Its important to know whats the right kind to take as well. This knowledge could help so many people out there .. if they only knew so I wanted to help spread the word......
Avatar n tn I can only tell you what I've been told over the years I've dealt with kidney stones. Drink plenty of water daily and make sure that your urine stays clear in color when you urinate. When you think you're drinking enough water, then drink another 8 oz glass of it. Additionally, recently I've started taking Flomax (generic version) on a daily basis.
Avatar f tn In my searches, I have read that Magnesium supplementation will dissolve kidney stones. and also gall stones.
Avatar f tn I was always told how uncommon it was for a girl my age (first stones were at age 19,I am now 27) to have kidney stones and also plus because I am a woman and women don't tend to get them. I was never ever offered any help even after asking for advice from many doctors on what should I do?? I have had kidney stones at least 3-4 Times a year. But this past month I have passed 10 stones so far and counting. Each time at the ER I am prescribed pain meds and anti nausea pills and sent home.
Avatar m tn I am not able to give you a diagnoses based on your results. Have you seen an Endocrinologist? I suffered from kidney stones and also pain in my kidney areas for many years. I have been stone free for six years now, since I seen the Endocrinologist. He reviewed my blood work and found several deficiencies, like Vitamin D, low Potassium, and high contents of Salt to name a few. He recommended foods to avoid since my stone were calcium acetate formations and some medications.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure what to do as it's been stuck for many days now, but I do think you can avoid then all together by avoiding too much dairy, taking magnesium supplements and drinking lots of water with lemon juice. If they are calcium stones then it's most likely a magnesium defficiency. If they are protein stones then avoid the meats and protein shakes. It's the stupid messages we have stuck in our heads that we don't have enough calcium and protein due to the meat and dairy industries.
Avatar n tn Also, specifically, lemon juice appears to break down CaOx stones. I pass a kidney stone at least once a month, so I completely understand what you are going through. No doctor would expect a 9mm stone to pass on its own, its just too big. I personalyl wouldn't be that anxious to break it up though, because a 9mm stone can make quite a few smaller ones. Luckily, in some blessed individuals, stones can stay in the kidney painlessly for many years without causing any trouble at all.
Avatar m tn Some time ago on the kidney stone forum someone did mention drinking lemon juice to help dissolve the stones. I do not know if that works or not, but drinking lots of water 2-3 litres per day will help to move the stone unless it has got lodged in the urinary tubes and cannot move. As you are so severely in pain, I would suggest you contact your doctor or go to the hospital so that you can be monitored where the stone is and if it is lodged you may need to have urgent surgery to remove it.
Avatar f tn Out-patients might be necessary to get a prescription so you can have relief until it/they pass. My husband has kidney stones. He is not supposed to eat lots of peanut butter or peanuts or kidney beans, etc. Drink lots of water everyday - stone or not. Let me know how you do.
Avatar m tn lemonade can cure kidney stones! Lemon juice has the highest levels of citrate of any citrus juice. Citrate helps dissolve any calcium deposits. Have depression, Drink coffee! A study at the Harvard School of Public Health found that women who drank an average of four cups of coffee per day were 20% less likely to develop depression. Eat yogurt to help prevent colds. You will have a 42 percent lower risk of getting upper respiratory infections.
Avatar f tn Do these types of stone dissolve if one takes Vit C and Lemon Juice? I was hopeing at least to help soften the stone for the shock therapy would work better.
Avatar m tn I have been dealing with chronic kidney stones for 8 years. I have passed over 200 stones and have over a dozen currently between both kidneys. I have been to about a dozen different urologists with each telling my husband and I they don't know what to do to help me stop forming stones and then labeling me a "pain drug seeker" so they don't have to admit they can't figure it out. I am now being seen by a urologist at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD.
Avatar f tn 2-3 litres is usually recommended. Drinking freshly squeezed lemon juice with water is said to help dissolve kidney stones. If you eat a lot of peanuts and peanut butter, then stop eating it or cut down. Peanuts and other foods contain a substance that can cause a build up of kidney stones. If you experience any pain, especially in the lower back, the sides and below your rib cage, start feeling unwell, make an appointment urgently to see the doctor.
Avatar n tn you'll come across a few sites that list something like ...olive oil or...vinegar with lemon juice or something mix that you drink. They swear by it but..yeah proceed at your own risk there. Basically it's like a power flush for the liver..but something you can try. Your gallbladder basically squeezes out bile to help digest oily, fatty foods...SOoooo another way is to avoid fats/oils for a few days up to a week to give your gallbladder a break..
Avatar f tn Drinking water with fresh lemon juice is said to dissolve stones - obviously that will depend on what type of stones you have. I have drank this and do not know if it works or not, but I have passed a lot of sediment from time to time which could have been a stone being broken up. I have heard that parsley is supposed to help too. There is forum on kidney stones and that may help you to look at that. With your heart problem, you should be referred under the care of a cardiologist.

More than 10 percent of the U.S. population is now on expensive antidepressant medications.
Avatar m tn Some people say that drinking fresh lemon juice with water will help to dissolve the stone (depending on which type of stone it is). Sometimes the urologist will be able to blast the stone into small particles so that they pass on their own. You may notice that when the stone starts to move or part of it break up and move, you may get bleeding, sickness and diarrhea with a high temperature as well as pain. If this happens you will need to see a doctor for an antibiotic.
Avatar f tn Some people say to drink water with lemon juice to help dissolve any stones (depending on which stone it is as there are 4 main different types of kidney stone). Best wishes.
