Kidney stones foods stay away

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones foods stay away


Avatar f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.
Avatar f tn Drink enough water to make the urine light yellow to almost clear. Stay away from soft drinks if you can help it and processed foods high in sodium. I currently have a large one in each kidney right now around 7mm-8mm in size which may require the doctor to blast with ultrasound. I have passed at least a dozen small stones over the years. Products with citric acid, mainly lemons will help prevent new one from forming although it will not help any current ones.Good luck.

Avatar n tn I suffer from what is called Polycystic Kidney Disease (google it) which causes chronic kidney stones. Many people have this disease with no signs until they are much olde. When their kidneys begin to fail them. Diarrhea is related because when the stone is stuck in the ureter ( the tube leading down to your bladder from your kidney) this sends a message to your entire digestive tract to stop.
Avatar f tn Hi, Mine are exactly the same ...................... My Dr suggested to stay away from calcium foods, supplements and stay away from oxalates, too.
Avatar f tn My stone was made of calcium oxalate and I was advised to stay away from foods with lots of oxalate, consume more calcium (not supplements), consider taking magnesium and of course, drink lots of water with real lemon juice in it. I hope all these changes keep my kidneys from making stones. And I send the same wishes to all those other stoners out there.
Avatar f tn Carrageenan stuff is good stuff -- it's from seaweed, but it's from red seaweed, which is largely not edible for humans. It can be used as an antiviral, and it's what makes Salmon pink and gives them their omega 3 oils, but for the most part humans don't consume red seaweeds. I never knew that's where it came from, Irish Moss, which can be used for many things but it just goes to show, when you isolate things you can get into trouble.
872485 tn?1240607162 I make stones all the time, but the foods I try and stay away from are: -yes caffeine -if you make oxalate stones-stay away from dark green leafy vegetables,chocolate,tea,nuts -any kind of vitamins in excess amounts can give you stones -if you make calcium stones do not stray away from calcium totally, just eat the norm, cutting it out totally can cause stones as well -how I look at it, the darker it is whether drink or food, the harder the kidney works to metabolize it I hope this helps you a
Avatar f tn It took a few hours but finally (after a CT scan) they figured out that i've got 2 kidney stones. One was still in my kidney and the other blocked my kidney from releasing into the bladder I was told...which I guess is where all the pain was coming from. They gave me dilaudid for pretty much the entire first day and then the pain went away on my right side so they stopped giving it to me. I left the next afternoon but was horribly cranky that entire night.
Avatar f tn The pain practically went away. I had severe kidney stones while I was on Topamax. I ended up hospitalized with a stone that got stuck and had to be retrieved out of the ureter. My right kidney started to fail because they did not know it was stuck. We thought we would wait for it to come out on it's own. After four days of waiting and no kidney stone, back to the hospital I went. They found out that my ureters were the size of a child the age of 8 or so.
Avatar n tn My stones are not from anything I eat its the disease. But stay away from alot of dairy products. And the 3 no are caffeine,spinach,and chocolate..
Avatar m tn It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
Avatar f tn It will help you go to the bathroom about every 30 min. I was born with a condition that causes my body to create kidney stones. I have been to the emergency room 4 or 5 times in the past 18 years for the large stones, small ones pass ok. My first stone caused bleeding and severe back pain also with pain in the lower abdomen area along with hot/cold flashes and vomiting. It may feel like someone is squeezing your kidney while at the same time stabbing it with an ice pick.
Avatar f tn No, I don't think it will affect kidney stones, but.. Slim fast has horrible ingredients, and I would not feed it to my dog. From their website, they list Hydrogenated soybean oil, High Fructose Corn syrup, etc. Soybean oil will make you fat, and so will high fructose corn syrup.Suffice to say, stay away from Slim Fast! Eat whole foods instead. At best, these drinks may cause rapid weight loss, but they are not healthy and usually the weight comes back later.
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 Drink enough water to make the urine light yellow to almost clear. Stay away from soft drinks if you can help it and processed foods high in sodium. I currently have a large one in each kidney right now around 7mm-8mm in size which may require the doctor to blast with ultrasound. This link may be of some help to you- 3mm should pass through just fine as I have passed at least a dozen small stones over the years.
Avatar f tn Because she has always been sick (and catches everything) we stay away from pre-processed foods and use pro-biotics. A blood IGG food panel was done that showed elevated protein markers for a multitude of foods, so she tries to stay away from those big issue items. Always shows neg for celiac and arthritis, and auto-immune markers but avoids gluten and takes Meloxicam daily to function somewhat normally.
Avatar n tn I recently had a kidney removed. I had a large kidney stone removed and during that surgery the tube was torn when it was dilated. The tube was never the same again and could not be repaired. I asked the urologist if I had any restrictions and all he said was "no, you can live a normal life". I want to know if there are any foods or medications I should stay away from that may have some affect on the kidneys.
Avatar f tn Stay away from excess salt. Don't eat salty foods for starters. Um....honestly, I would go for a 2nd opinion. Seriously. I went for a 2nd opinion and thank God for that, because "they" are the reason I took myself off my meds. Drugs relieve the pain, but drugs like Ibuprofen, aspirin, acetaminophen actually cause more damage to the kidneys. So, again...I would seek a 2nd opinion. Don't just settle with this doctors opinions....removing a kidney is a serious deal.
Avatar f tn My wife has had cysts removed from here ovaries wich may be the case but it sounds like kidney stones. Go to a doctor and get a ct scan of your kidney, then they should be able to send that info to a uralogist that can help you. I have to drink plenty of water every day. Stay away from soft drinks if you can help it and processed foods high in sodium. I currently have a large one in each kidney right now arround 7mm-8mm in size which may require the doctor to blast with ultrasoun.
Avatar f tn Incredibly, mutant, toxic nuclear painful and just plain HURT, A LOT, multiple kidney stones. Kidney stones can pass and poof - all gone. Then another - or a few others - can make their ugly journey into your ureter days or weeks later. This experience is not fun. I speak from experience. One little 5 mm just about made me grind the enamel off my teeth - but the lovely wretched staghorn model at a whopping 9+mm? And hooked and now on display in a window box?
661200 tn?1225486613 You may want to consider preparing your own dog food to keep as much phosphorous out of her diet as possible. Most prescription dog foods for kidney failure are merely low protein. The idea being that protein is metabolized in the kidneys; therefore, a low protein diet is necessary. Studies over the past few years negate this idea. It's not so much the protein that is the problem, rather that a more digestible form of protein is needed.
1963554 tn?1325451090 He said that his right kidney is destroyed and that his left kidney has about 25% left. He has a tumor within his bladder and his urine cannot pass thru which goes into his kidney and damages it. When we had Shaggy checked out in May our vet said that it's UTI...because I mentioned to him that he'd pee and then go to other spots and nothing comes out. So he was given anti-biotics. This went on for several months.
1832268 tn?1326819610 We brought him home and did twice daily under skin fluids plus standard recommended meds and kidney diet. We then took him to a kidney specialist who was trying to determine at what stage of Kidney disease he was at. Got his levels down a little more a week little later, things were looking promising and his energy levels were increasing dramatically. Less than a week later, he completely stopped eating. Took him to specialist after 2 days of not eating.
Avatar f tn This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
2361255 tn?1339611918 To make a long story short, I moved back home 2 years ago after my Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer, and he passed away on January 2nd. Prince was diagnosed with the kidney failure on February 19th. It has really been a hard blow, because I feel focusing on Prince is the reason I have not fell apart from losing my Dad. But, thank you again for the compliment and it's nice to talk to people who have been through the same things.!
1916673 tn?1420236870 Higher than normal potassium is not very unusual in kidney disease, but it is important to discount other potential causes - including kidney or urinary tract stones. An ultra-sound and white blood cell (WBC) count will help identify if stones are a problem. Phosphorus is also too high. Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys.
Avatar f tn I know I've flushed out kidney stones. I've figured out that the cause of my kidney stones is high fructose corn syrup in some of my favorite foods like fig bars which I've given up. I would not be surprised if that had something to do with my gall stones.
Avatar m tn [Day 90] I tried to take others suggestions and see an Infectious Disease Specialist and/or do the more involved lab tests but I couldn't get in without a referral. The one that I spoke with did not know what more he would be able to do. My physician and urologist basically said the same thing. Oh well, my condition does seem to be getting better ever so slowly. Guess I will just be patient and get another ultrasound in a month - go from there.
Avatar n tn I also have kidney stones chronically. I just got a CT scan yesterday, have a 4mm stone in my right kidney. My Dr said this should pass on its own. I once passed 18 stones in a 24 hour period, after lithography. That was awful. Nothing seems to work for me I am 47 and had them since I was a teenager. Seems the older I get the faster they come. My kidneys were clear in June, this is Aug and already have a 4mm stone, and passed a 2 or 3mm stone a couple weeks ago.
