Kidney stones are more likely to occur if you make less than 1 liter of urine a day. That's slightly more than a quart. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001493/ I have had chronic kidney stones since my early 20's so I am familiar with the pain involved, not very pleasent.
Avatar f tn 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. Your urologist may have advised you to drink 2 litres of fluids (4 pints) during the day, more if you are doing exercises that make you sweat or perspiring in hot weather.
Avatar n tn I also have kidney stones, I am looking to learn more about what kind of diet or foods are good and bad for the kidneys. I would like to eat healthier and avoid the foods that are not good for my kidneys. Does anyone know of a website or have information that could help me out. So far all I know is drink a lot of water, and spinach is not good for the kidneys... Thanks everyone!
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 m tn Recurrent kidney infection can be due to diabetes, some anomaly or defect in the kidney or due to the organisms developing antibiotic resistance. Recurrent kidney stones are found renal tubular acidosis, medullary sponge kidney, Dent's disease (genetic disease of the kidney), hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria and Crohn's disease. Since the pain comes before periods too, it can also be due to endometriosis.
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 m tn i wanted to ask as to whether i should completely avoid spinach,cabbage ,coffee and tea???? do they cause stones?? what other speefic foods i should avoid?? Also my doctor had given me potassium citrate 1100 mg three times a day when i had stones...should i take this medicine further for another 2-3 months...or does it cause problems in the long run???
Avatar f tn Hi there, In medullary sponge kidney disease there is fluid retention in the ducts of your kidneys. Diet and exercise can lessen the severity of kidney stones which may form. Organic diet may be helpful. A diet low in high protein foods like meat, low in high oxalate foods like spinach, rhubarb, peanuts, and low in sodium may help. A diet high in fiber like fruits, vegetables can be very helpful. Vitamin A is helpful in preventing the formation of stones.
Avatar f tn I have tried the diet, meds, and lot of water over the years and I still get stones. I am finally going to see a Dr at the university here in Chicago. But before he will even see me I have to complete 3 24hr urine tests, with blood work after each one. I start my 3rd test Sunday and will FINALLY be able to make my appointment on Monday for him. They have a clinic and prevention center there, so I am really excited to be able to see what they have to say. I will keep you posted.
82861 tn?1333457511 They can become elevated if there is a urinary tract infection, a kidney infection or a prostate infection, or the elevations can be caused by damage to the kidney (either kidney disease or kidney failure). A urinalysis with a microalbuminuria test will determine if it is an infection or kidney failute. Lyme disease can commonly effect the kidneys also causing kidney failure. So if it has not been performed yet I would have your dog's urine tested and perform a lyme disease test.
Avatar m tn I have salivary stones, kidney stones, a gallstone, gall stone polyps, a calcification on my hip, small calcified bump on tip of one of my fingers , 2 cysts on testicles. I have chronic stomach and back pains, joint pains, no energy and feel like a hypochondriac when i go to doctors because besides stones, growths, polyps etc I am in perfect shape besides triglycerides a bit high. I have anxiety and depression issues. Please help why do i have all these stones and stuff everywhere?
Avatar n tn I have been reading many message boards and feel am self educated about kidney stones by my own body. Each kidney stone is unique in severity of pain. The bigger ones don't always have bigger pain. The largest I have passed was5 ml. I just dont know what to do anymore. Im tired of passing them, tired of being in pain, tired of missing work and could be in danger of loosing my job. The painkillers are great , but takes a day or so to get back into functioning mode after taking them.
Avatar f tn I am a poor water drinker which contributes to the formation of most kidney stones. I suggest that you have your stones analysed if you have not done that. I was told by 2 urologists that there is nothing that I can take or do that will change my situation. Both urologist told me the same as what yours said, my chronic back pain was not related to kidney stones. They were correct and I was diagnosed with other issues that was the cause of most of my chronic low back pain.
Avatar f tn I have a damaged kidney from years ago, and when I get dehydrated, I get little tiny kidney stones that it takes a while to clear. Again, mine is an usual situation, but I did get some small kidney stones while on Diflucan (a rather high dose for several months, which is unusual) and it has taken a while for them to clear. So I think most people would not get that problem, and it's because of my damaged kidney.
Avatar n tn Meanwhile, ensure that you keep hydration high with fluid intake over 2000 ml and pass urine as frequently as you feel the urge. Reducing salt in diet has been known to prevent the recurrence of stones. D keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
Avatar f tn Have you been scanned for kidney stones? I am having my kidney stones removed on Friday by lithotripsy. They are extremely painful, cause scarring and reflux and will continue to damage the kidney until removed. You are NOT a freak, nor were you born one. This problem happens to many, many people and please make sure you're persistent with your own care. As far as things helping, I try to avoid meat and spinach which makes it worse and also drink alot of cranberry juice and water.
Avatar m tn As I understand, Flomax is off-label for use in women to help passage of kidney stones by smoothing the muscles of the ureter, etc. I know exactly how you feel ... A 3.0mm stone has a high chance to pass on it's own, but the waiting is the hardest part. You've gotten terrific advice above.
Avatar m tn So according to test results, I have no kidney infection and no kidney stones because according to my doctor, kidney stones will show some trace of blood in my detailed urine exam. Also note that during the episode of my back/kidney ache, my chest pain was very little to almost gone. Although they came back a little bit but not to the point that i would go crazy.
Avatar f tn My Crohn's personally is very very affected by fiber, so the whole time in the hospital and after I was released, I had been eating a very low fiber diet and feeling much better than before I went. I've been drinking a boost in the morning for nutrients, plus I try to eat a lot of protein, and some fat for the calories. My GI said to make smoothies with the boost, add some ice cream for calories, a banana for potassium/nutrients/light fat, etc.
Avatar n tn Tomatoes and spinach have higher amounts of oxalates and can increase the risk of developing kidney stones. Kidney stones can become serious if not treated adequately at the right time, as they can cause obstruction to urine outflow resulting in kidney damage, injury to the ureters resulting in blood in urine and frequent infections. Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
Avatar f tn * Calcium stones. To help prevent calcium stones from forming, your doctor may prescribe a thiazide diuretic or a phosphate-containing preparation. * Uric acid stones. Your doctor may prescribe allopurinol (Zyloprim, Aloprim) to reduce uric acid levels in your blood and urine and a medicine to keep your urine alkaline. In some cases, allopurinol and an alkalinizing agent may dissolve the uric acid stones. * Struvite stones.
Avatar n tn Do consult with your doctor about this issue for their guidance. Kidney stones are something we all want to avoid! If our diet can help, good to try, right? Avoiding foods high in oxalate, a compound found in many of them, is the key to this approach. Oxalate is a leading component of many kidney stones with calcium oxalate being the most common type of stone. Foods to avoid: Spinach Bran flakes Rhubarb Beets Potato chips French fries Nuts and nut butters These are high in oxalate.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Kidney stones at times dislodge by themselves and the pain disappears. There are numerous speculations in alternative medicines which say that the stones disappear on medication, but Allopathy does not have any such treatment. Drink plenty of fluids, try apple cider and cranberry juice. These tips may help to flush out the stone if it breaks (but less likely).
Avatar n tn There are various causes for the calcium problem, one of which could be increased dietary intake of calcium. Calcium and oxalate together in the kidney could form calcium oxalate stones/crystals. To clarify your problem you need a full work-up, which would include blood tests and urine tests. As a rule, people with stone disease should have increased water intake. This is doubly true in your case because of the diabetes.
Avatar m tn I'm a 49yo male, never had kidney stones before. I just passed a 9mm calcium oxylate stone and my doctor says there's another one working its way through my urinary tract. My question is - Since I never had a stone before, why do I all of a sudden I have two at 49yo??? I have not changed my diet significantly, but I recently moved from the USA to Germany. My diet does not match any of the risk factors I've read, and I drink the same bottled water I did in the US.

Avatar f tn I read an article from 2010 (I don't have the link, sorry) that talked about oxalates causing general abdominal/pelvic inflammation (and therefore pain), not just increasing the risk of kidney stones. Can you confirm this? THANK YOU for your help!!
