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.

Avatar n tn Through testing in June, I know that I have 5 small stones in my left kidney and the kidney has hydroneph... can't remember the word at the moment, but it means enlarged/swollen. My uric acid (1480) and oxaclic acid levels were high. I am now on allopurinol (sp? the bottle is not with me). I was told to change my diet to avoid purines and oxalic acid. I got a very short list from the doctor and was told to do some research on the internet.
Avatar n tn How are you? Low purine/low uric acid diet is indicated for hyperuricemia or gout. Diet should be relatively high in carbohydrates and low in fat since carbohydrates have been shown to favor uric acid excretion. Drinking plenty of fluids can also help in eliminating excess uric acid and in minimizing calculi formation.Low purine diet should be 120-150 mg/day. All vegetables except asparagus, cauliflower, mushroom or spinach are recommended.
646318 tn?1261185094 There are many types of kidney stones. Most kidney stones are not uric acid stones. If you have a kidney stone you need to make it pass. To do that the best thing to do is drink plenty of water. So much that you are not even thirsty and your sick of water. Keep a water bottle with you all the time a sip it from time to time. The other thing to do is to stay active. Walk around keep moving. That will get the stone to move. Do you have a history in your family of kidney stones?
895634 tn?1283992810 •Other substances also can form stones including the medications acyclovir, indinavir, and triamterene. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is not drinking enough fluids. 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. 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 The less common type are uric acid kidney stones. As with the calcium oxalate, cutting back your intake of animal protein while increasing bulk and fiber in your diet can help prevent them from forming. Drinking fruit juice or drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup isn't good. limit your intake of meat, sugar, salt, and fruit juice, increase dietary fiber, and supplement with 10,000 units of vitamin A, 300 milligrams of magnesium citrate, and 100 milligrams of vitamin B6 every day.
Avatar n tn Sugar and salt can also increase the excretion of both calcium and oxalate in the urine, you should definitely limit, if not completely eliminate, sugar and refined carbohydrates from your diet, and cut back on salt. The other type of stones are uric acid kidney stones. Cutting back your intake of animal protein while increasing bulk and fiber in your diet can help prevent them from forming.
Avatar n tn Uric Acid connected to symptoms of cardiovascular disease, spasticity and involuntary movements of muscles, cognitive retardation (fibro fog), arthritis, kidney stones, abdominal pain, hypertension and more. These symptoms sound familiar to anyone? Uric acid is connected to oxidative stress, which is caused by an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or easily repair the resulting damage.
Avatar m tn A high level of uric acid in the blood can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. Many drugs can increase or decrease the level of uric acid.
Avatar m tn - calcium oxalate struvite uric cystine The rarest form of kidney stones is Cystine stones. Cystinuria is an inherited condition that affects the amount of acid that is passed in the urine. Struvite stones are caused by recurrent kidney infections. Uric stones are caused when there is too much uric acid in the urine with rheumatic conditions like gout. Calcium oxalate stones can from with too much protein in the diet, too much calcium and Vitamin D and through dehydration.
Avatar n tn Weturner, there IS a connection between "bipolar" and kidney stones. His 'bipolar' symptoms and kidney stones are very possibly caused by the same thing. It is called Hyperparathyroidism. Most people have never heard of PARAthyroid glands. But we all have four of them. Please have your husband's parathyroid checked out by the best expert you can find. I was put on medications for years for mental things such as bipolar, I was also getting kidney stones a lot.
Avatar f tn My doctor said I might have kidney stones because the blood test did not show an infection. Here are my symptoms: pain in the left side of my back at my waist line. Pain in my bladder, and pain going down the front of my left thigh. How long should this pain last? It has already been over 1 week.
Avatar m tn For calcium stones you need to restrict packaged food items rich in sugars and dairy products. For uric acid stones you need to restrict protein intake. Hope this helps. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor when you can arrange to see one. Meanwhile try the tips and diet advice and get blood sugar checked. Take care!

452063 tn?1324078516 I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
Avatar f tn How unusual is it for the stones to be in this meaty part of my kidney and since they are still in my kidney aren’t they just going to continue to grow larger? Are these stones causing damage to my kidneys? They don’t seem to be causing any blockages based on the ultrasounds that have been done, but I still have had frequent flank pain and blood visible in my urine prior to the surgery. Is there any hope that I will be able to be stone free and prevent more stones?
15905440 tn?1443866928 we have a long history of thyroid problems (hypo and hyper) that comes from my mother's maternal and paternal side (and includes my mother). My maternal grandfather also has also had kidney stones once that he managed passed his without it causing an infection. Also my mother has a high uric acid level, but has never had any symptoms caused by it.
Avatar n tn Uric acid stones can be maintained with a drug called Alpurinol .. are you on that? There are other types, too, the most common being calcium oxalate and those are made by too much calicum produced sometimes by the parathyroids not working right. Yes, the Vitamin D is great and any pain level should get better .. did he suggest Magnesium and low oxalate diet at all? Have you had your stones analyzed?
Avatar n tn Hi, kidney stones have different composition chemically, like calcium oxalate, uric acid stones etc. Please get stones tested along with blood calcium and uric acid levels. Take 3-4 lts of water daily, beer or barley water do induce dieresis which helps in flushing the stones.
Avatar f tn Not sure if it will dissolve them but it is a good preventitive measure. There are many types of stones, uric acid and calcium phosphate types. I had a combo of each and was on a really good diet. Just a stone maker i guess. But you are right wow the pain is something to be reckoned with.
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 Sodium urate is 15 times more soluble than uric acid. At a urine pH of 6.8, 10 times as much sodium urate as uric acid is present. At a urine pH of 7.8, 100 times as much urate as uric acid is present" "Surgical treatments may include ureteroscopic stone extraction, percutaneous nephrolithotomy, open stone surgery, and extracorporal shock wave lithotripsy. Stones may need to be removed by a urologist. The technique used depends on stone size and location.
Avatar f tn You have to find out which kind of stones you have...uric acid or calcium I think are the 2 and then go from there on ways to prevent new ones. SHe hasnt had any new stones in years now! Hope this helps you some.
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 n tn too much calcium, too much uric acid and too little citrate (which is a stone inhibitor). He is taking 8 pills a day for stones, but still passes them. No one can seem to tell us a root cause. They are only trying to help the symptom which is stone production. Its been very frustrating. But if you have pain, and blood in your urine they should continue to treat the pain as the stone can be in a spot that is undetectable on a x-ray or ct.
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.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with MSK for a year now, and my specialist (in Aust) has put me on a low-purine diet to reduce the amount of uric acid produced -this is what causes the production of the stones in the kidneys. I know it is early days, but at 42, having changed my diet, I haven't had any stones recur for a year now!
Avatar n tn When this happens, the urine contains more crystal-forming substances, such as calcium and uric acid. Kidney stones are also prone to develop in highly acidic or highly alkaline urine. Sometimes, the underlying cause is an inherited metabolic disorder or kidney disease. Gout, inflammatory bowel disease and some medications promote specific types of kidney stones. It's common, however, for kidney stones to have no definite, single cause.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the response, 33 years, bloody hell, a few years has destroyed me, I had a double hernia op that felt way less painful than kidney stones for me, I have noticed chest pains all across the top of the chest that sometimes spread down both forearms, on the front of my throat and the top of my head, I'm starting to wonder if that's all connected to the kidney stones since I just happen to have had the kidney stone pain not long after the onset of these symptoms.
