Kidney stones and food

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and food


Avatar n tn I have had a 5mm kidney stone and now have about 5 smaller ones. I have started medication for prevention and been told that I need to change my diet to avoid purines & oxalic acid. I am also hypoglycemic. In researching what I can/cannot eat, I am getting conflicting information. Different websites list the content of these materials at differing amounts. The USDA will say a type of food is at 1 level and another will say something totally different.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had kidney stones during your pregnancy and what did the pain feel like. I went to the hospital earlier and was sent home and told I was just experiencing round lig pain but I'm a bit skeptical of that verdict because it lasted for hours and the pain was so intense. I didn't test positive for a uti either but idk what to think. I dont have bloody urine but i swear i peed out something resembling a small pebble earlier too.

Avatar f tn I live with kidney stones and have been for years. Does anyone know what is good to eat to help prevent stones? All I can find online are foods that I can't eat.
Avatar f tn Ironically I had to have surgery at 34wks to remove several stones. The good news is, once you get to labor it will be a breeze compared to stones. And I've had three low or no medicated births....I'd take labor over stones any day. Good luck hoping they pass quickly for you!
Avatar n tn You need to watch if the dog is in pain, having problems urinating, etc. I take it these are bladder stones? They are more common then kidney stones. It is considered a major surgery to remove them and they may become chronic. You definitely have to watch the diet. Ask your Vet for a recommendation on the food. There are dog food companies that do make special diets for animals with stones!
Avatar n tn Called an ambulance, said it sounded like kidney stones. Took an ambulance, plane and another ambulance to a hospital in the city-I live in the jungle in Costa Rica. The x-rays and ultrasound show a kidney stone. On the other side it also shows some white spots that may be calcium or other small stones. The doctor said the diarreah was unrelated. I stayed in the hospital overnight-no diarreah. Came home yeaterday and last night severe diarreah all night again.
Avatar n tn I must have been extremely small because i had no 'symptoms' etc of actually having a kidney stone, and he said he was not concerned and i would pass it. Symptoms then went away but recently i have been having urinary problems. Its doesnt happen every day, but i sometimes get a bloated feeling when i have to go, and sometimes i feel like i have to go, but i dont. Also the past two weeks i have been feeling nauseous. Not related to food etc, it just seems to come and go.

Eat low fat diet as the amount of oxalate in the urine increases with the amount of fat in the stool after bypass surgeries. Limit the intake of foods rich in oxalate like chocolate, cocoa, spinach and other dark green leafy items, nuts, soy products, most berries, beets, beans, and tea. Avoid excess of vitamin C in your diet as it can convert into oxalate.
Avatar f tn I have gall stones and they are acting up now during 3rd trimester but I think it has a lot to do with my diet. I've been eating a lot or bread and other junky food that generally causes inflammation for me. I know if I go back to eating lots of produce and greens that and the reflux will stop. I also take milk thistle which helps with nausea and the gall pain. Good luck!
Avatar m tn kidney stones can be very recurring and can start very young, although ive never heard of someone getting them in their early teens.. usually early 20s, but that doesnt mean it doesnt happen earlier. it sounds like you will have to sit in some pain until you get insurance again. you can try to seek out clinics, but theyre not very good at helping. get your insurance back and go to a dr, because if you have them so often, you might have something else going on.
Avatar n tn The size, configuration, and location affect the spontaneous passage of these stones. However, these may recur. There are different of types of kidney stones and calcium oxalate is the most common stone that forms. To prevent them from forming regularly, drink plenty of water and have a proper diet. Take care and best regards.
Avatar m tn Antioxidants reduce the amount of inflammation in your body, which helps the kidneys function properly. The potassium in cauliflower is known to prevent kidney stones. Kidney stones can lead to kidney infections and eventually chronic kidney disease. Eat cauliflower raw with a hummus dip or steam it with a squeeze of lemon. Cauliflower is also delicious smashed with low fat sour cream and fresh parsley.
Avatar f tn Hello, Kidney stones can be or are caused by too much calcium and lack of Magnesium> Since you are researching. I'd like to direct you to Search Magnesium and kidney stones. This is one sign of lack of Mg, also included is anxiety and hundreds more., Dr Carolyn Dean's book is amazing. "The Magnesium Miracle.". It will help you understand your symptoms and have instructions what to take and how much,and you will be amazed at what problems lack of Mg can cause.
Avatar n tn But i do have 1 question. Does anyone know if this can lead to increased chance of Kidney Stones? I dont have any kidney stone issues, but I just wanted to see if anyone knows if Phosphaturia can lead to any kidney issues. Thanks!
592774 tn?1325397342 When I first started online with other MSK sufferers, they talked about the stones they "caught". I could not figure out how they did it, because I never could tell when a stone would leave my bladder. I tried urinating in a cup and then pouring it through a mesh kitchen strainer(never to be used for food again!), then just urinating right into it the strainer. They were both awkward and I never bothered long enough to catch stones.
Avatar n tn The reason I ask is because several of your symptoms, especially the gut probs and kidney stones are included in hyperparathyroidism which Drs don't look for very often. Do you have frequent headaches, joint and muscle pain, and fatigue? If so, check out and look at the symptoms listed there...This may not be what is going on, but it may point you in the right direction...Good luck...
Avatar f tn As you have had kidney stones and have been feeling unwell, your food intake was probably not the same as when you were well. When I had my stone I was not able to eat and lost a lot of weight. I had no appetite at all. The anemia has more than likely come about you not eating well becasue of your kidney problem. Your doctor should prescribe you with a course of iron. Make sure you do not drink tea when taking the iron tablets at the same time, becasue it hinders its absorbtion.
Avatar f tn We did many tests and the findings were elevated urea and creatinine, elevated calcium and kidney and bladder stones. The vets disagree on her condition, one thinks that the seizures are caused by the kidneys and the other that the kidneys and the seizures are not related. So far she has not started antiepileptic medication. We changed her food to Hill's k/d and her blood tests are much improved. The stones also seem to reduce. However, the seizures insist and I am very worried.
Avatar m tn Pains after kidney stones have passed, the pains feel like they're in the stomach they come and go after eating meals, about 5 or 10 minutes after. all kidney stones inside passed at least two weeks ago, but still has these pains.
Avatar n tn 4 cm is seen in my right VUJ causing mild dilatation of the ight ureter. So, please advice me the food items which are helpful to disslove the calculus and which are not tobe taken.
Avatar n tn I told my vet and he seemed to think there may be kidney stones causing the problem and to give him aspirin for a week and get back to him if it did not improve, but the aspirin caused stomach irritation and didn't make any difference, so I stopped giving it to him. I am wondering if anyone out there can help me figure this out - could it be the food causing cramps or gas? Or a side effect of the Baytril? If it IS kidney stones, why is there no trouble with the flow of urine?
Avatar n tn My ENT explained that they are food particles trapped in the tonsils that happen when the tonsils are not draining saliva and acids like they should. The food gets impacted into the deep pits of the tonsild, which are like a sponge my doc explained. The do not need antibiotics because it is not an infection.
Avatar f tn My 60 year old husband passed small uric acid type kidney stones in August (per lab analysis of stones), had a blood test that showed high uric acid and was put on Allopurinol 100mg (twice daily) about two weeks ago. He recently lost weight after having an angioplasty with stent in late July (blood work shows normal range for cholesterol- blood glucose elevated at 117, blood pressure is normal, pulse 50 to 60).
Avatar n tn Other people have commented about this in CT. and even went in for ultrasound to determine if kidney stones were present.
Avatar m tn Continue adequate water intake and keep a balanced meal rich in fruits and vegetables. Also avoid any spicy food or any alcoholic beverage, and coffee for the moment. Further follow up of the swollen area may be necessary so that proper management may be done. Although, this may spontaneously resolve on its own.
Avatar n tn I found a suppository medication w the belladonna flower works best for my kidney pain and stones and spasms your urologist can prescribe this ornother meds, but i would be weary of narcotics other than that, as most contain Tylenol and Tylenol damages kidneys ultimately m. Change your diet around no black tea black coffee soda or too much bread.. these contain oxylates which is what forms stones in your body I switched to green tea m( more caffeine than coffee and hydrated you and is safe!
Avatar n tn Hi, I have never heard of stones in tonsils. I've heard of kidney stones and gallstones, but never stones in tonsils. I wonder if your tonsils are so hard that they feel like stones? Tonsils shouldn't have stones or feel hard, so please go to your physician and get this checked out. You might need to have them removed.
Avatar n tn Seven days ago, I had severe pain in my right kidney and vomiting. It stopped after 2 hours, but I woke up with severe pressure and pain in my pubic bone. That has changed in the last 4 days, so now I have severe pain and pressure in my vaginal like I have the worst yeast infection in history. It hurts more when I stand because it's like gravity worsens the pressure. I'm sitting on a heating pad now.
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.
