ADVERTISEMENTS

Kidney stones are hard masses that can grow from crystals forming within the kidneys. Girls get them, but they’re substantially more common in men. About three quarters of the kidney stones are made out of calcium oxalate. (Uric acid stones are most often seen in gout.) Oxalate is an organic salt, but when joined with calcium it creates an insoluble mass called calcium oxalate, that is the most common chemical compound found in kidney stones. Urinary oxalate is the single most powerful predictor of kidney stone formation—the higher the urinary oxalate, the greater the danger of oxalate kidney stones. So anything that helps reduce urinary oxalate would help reduce the risk of kidney stones, right? That’s the finding of a recent and significant study in which supplementation with 900 mg EPA and 600 mg DHA for a span of 30 days lowered the urinary oxalate by 23 percent, hence efficiently reducing, by a substantial quantity the danger of calcium oxalate formation. Because 7 5 percent of kidney stones are formed from oxalates, you’ll desire to avert or at least reduce your consumption of foods that are high in oxalates: nuts, tea, chocolate, beets, rhubarb, and wheat bran are all on the list. Phosphate-based soft drinks are also a large difficulty for stone formers. A study in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology analyzed 1,009 male patients and found that the men who have the biggest amounts of phosphate-based pops had the greatest rate of stone recurrence.

Two other things you can you do to help prevent another excruciatingly painful stone from ever forming again is to take magnesium and begin drinking a ton of water. Water will make calcium oxalate more soluble and a lot less likely to form crystals. Water and lemon juice may help as well, because a half cup of lemon juice a day will increase citrate amounts, which can help fight kidney stone  formation. (Pop, on the other hand, does the reverse.) And research shows that grapefruit juice increases the threat of kidney stones by as much as 44 percent, so if you’re prone to stone  formation, avert it. Ditto with salt.
