1611319 tn?1378621999 Hi, I have had many calcium oxalate kidney stones and my para's are ok after repeated tests. Crystals can be the pre-cursor, as I understand, to calcium oxalate stones OR they can be small pieces that have broken off an actual stone. If your para's aren't working right you may be producing too much calcium and stones can form. Not sure on the Low D except to be sure they treat you with supplements if they agree. Mine was very low and felt better with supplemental D.
Avatar n tn I am 55 years old I am a female i took a urine test and they found amorphous crystals identified and calacium oxalate crystals identified are they kidney stones or bladder stones. also I have blood in the urine also.

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.
168348 tn?1379360675 magnesium for the prevention of calcium oxalate kidney stones. I cannot take Urocit K because of terrible GI side effects, so my Urologist suggested this to help disuade them from forming. My calcium levels are normal. I have a condition called MSK (Medullary Sponge Kidney) that predisposes me to producing calcium oxalate or calcium oxalate/phosphorous stones. I avoid all oxalate containing foods and don't take any extra calcium supplements or antacids containing calcium Thanks.
Avatar n tn I just had a blood test and again have +2 blood in the urnie. I also now have calcium oxalate crystals. Could the crystals cause blood in the urnie?
Avatar n tn Individuals with higher levels of oxalate in urine are predisposed to developing kidney stones made of calcium oxalate. Though no stones may have been seen, their passing could have been the reason for the trauma to your urethra and the subsequent strictures (narrowing that needed dilatation). Blood in urine is again an indication of kidney stones.
Avatar n tn Was put on Microbid for a month and still casts and crystals in urine. Done kidney ultrasound, which showed no stones and nothing abnormal, had an abdomen and pelvis cat scan with no abnormalities, then done a gallbladder ultrasound which am waiting for the results. Have an appointment with a urologist but the doctor couldnt find any appointments sooner than April 16th. The pain in my rt kidney is on my last nerve.
Avatar f tn I am about five months pregnant and have had one bladder infection that was treated wih antibiotics. Now I have calcium crystals in my urine. Does this mean kidney stones? And if so, how is this treated during pregnancy?
18954 tn?1314301717 My doctor has told me that I can prevent kidney stones by changing my diet to exclude foods that are high in calcium and oxalate such as dairy, Coca Cola, chocolate, peanuts, vegetables and tea, however she did not tell me what foods are GOOD for kidney stones. Can you help me with a few suggestions?
Avatar n tn Thanks for your professional advice....... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Troy, From what you are saying, I am assuming that you have a history of passing kidney stones. Once you have developed (or passed) one kidney stone, you will have an approximately 50% increased risk of developing another kidney stone.
Avatar m tn 1) Can uric acid crystals, or calcium oxalate crystals, irritate the bladder to the degree mine is irritated? 2) Is it possible for a stone of 4mm. to be lodged at the uretervescular junction and not show up on both ultra sound and X-ray? Could a lodged stone near this junction be the explanation as to why I have such significant constant pressure on my bladder? 3) Does anyone have any other ideas of what might be causing the pain?
Avatar n tn calcium oxalate stones, struvite stones, uric acid stones or cystine stones. Potassium citrate is used for the treatment of stones. Treatment modes include oral medicines, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithrotripsy (ESWL), uteroscopic stone removal and percutaneous nephrolithotomy. Please discuss these treatment options with your urologist. Also take less calcium and oxalate rich foods and supplements like dairy products, colas, chocolate, peanuts, leafy vegetables, and tea. I hope it helps.
Avatar f tn my recent U/A showed neg nitrites, trace leuckocytes, 3+ blood, 1+ calcium oxalate crystals. I have an extensive history of kidney stones. I am getting spasms in the ureters, and some back pain, not as bad as usual. Is the U/A showing kidney stones?
Avatar f tn I am a 26 year old female and I have been dealing with kidney stones for the past 9 years. I pass atleast 2 stones every month. Recently, I had SEVERE pain in my left flank and went to the ER. Had a CT scan done and it showed I had several stones in both kidneys. I was given morphine at the hospital and vicodin to take home.
Avatar m tn These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is dehydration. Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common.
757137 tn?1347200053 Magnesium will get rid of kidney stones, and cranberry juice will prevent them.
Avatar f tn I concur with Spotjeff. My natural doctor says: "Most kidney stones are composed of calcium oxalate. Magnesium makes calcium more soluble in the urine, and inhibits the formation of calcium-oxalate crystals. One study examined 55 people with reoccurring kidney stones, who were given 500 milligrams of magnesium daily for up to 4 years. the study showed that 85% of these people remained stone0free compared with 41% in a group of people who did not receive magnesium supplements.
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 n tn Thanks Vanessa, No other places, but may be on on my chest. My father is known to have had kidney stones. I may have passed a bladder stone several years ago, and had recent symptoms of a possible stone but no diagnostic tests to indicate anything except for trace red blood cells on urine dip and some kidney pain last year.
Avatar n tn Calcium oxalate crystals in the urine are the most common constituent of human kidney stones. Although your kidney function tests and KUB ultrasound are speaking otherwise, but we need to get it further evaluated. My sincere advice is to consult a nephrologist and get it evaluated. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
1660289 tn?1302560398 I have a Shih Tzu who is going in for surgery soon to have two large bladder stones removed. He also has two small ones in his kidney. The vet keeps talking about getting him started on Hill's diet. I have no intention of buying this food from them. I have reminded her three times that he needs to be on a grain free food. I will not risk the chance of switching foods & having him go through the miserable itchiness, hair loss & yeast infection again.
Avatar m tn I have had a tonne of kidney stones in the past, but in the recent months I have been told that calcium oxalate crystals have been present. I had my fair share of emergency room visits with renal colic and I was never told about any crystals but always told of blood being present in urine. Despite the number of years of having stones, the oxalate crystals being present in urine is totally new to me. I wish you the best luck and health for your daughter and you.
Avatar m tn Having MSK disease and all the stones that go along with it, my stones were calcium oxalate stones. Once I cut out foods and most important drinks high in oxalate, my stones decreased greatly in occurrence. I cut out #1 orange juice (also oranges). #2 tea. And any other drinks high in oxalate. It wasn't the calcium as the problem creating stones, it was the oxalate.
Avatar f tn Hi, The presence of high levels of calcium oxalate crystals in the urine may indicate the presence of urinary tract stones. This may also be an indicator of high calcium levels in the blood.Underlying diseases like hormone imbalance, excessive intake of calcium supplements or high intake of dietary calcium levels, hypertension, dehydration, underlying kidney disease and gastrointestinal disorders may contribute to this.
Avatar n tn Posted by Cyndi on May 26, 1999 at 12:24:04 I recently posted a question concerning the possibility of my, then 15 mo. old, daughter, having stones. She has grade 3 reflux on the left side, diagnosed after two kidney infections. She has been on Septra since, which would be for 9 mo., and has had no problems until the symptoms of passing stones one month ago.
Avatar m tn I had the same problem 3 years back. I also had lot of oxalate crystals in my urine exam. Ultrasonogram abdomen report said cystitis. I passed a small stone and was asymtomatic till now. I do have some dysuria but there is not much pain. I am a smoker. What should I do? Thanks This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/912784'>Calcium-Oxalate Crystals in Urine???</a>.
Avatar m tn Looks normal, except that you have Calcium Oxalate crystals present in your urine. Do you have a history of kidney-stones? Your urinalysis looks normal except for that.
Avatar n tn I may not know much about kidney stones, but I've had multiple bladder infections and risked kidney stones before when I was 18. One thing I can say, I'm not going to be 100% positive on it, but if your son drank cranberry juice (lots of it) check into the effects of the oxalates(in cranberries) and the calcium(in your urine) building up to possibly form kidney stones, the last question on the linked page will be helpful if that's the case. http://www.uti-cleanse.com/faqs.
