Can osteobi-flex cause kidney stones?

No: If you are using glucosamine/chondroitin as a dietary supplement to manage osteoarthritis symptoms, its use is controversial; and there is no proven clinical benefit. Therefore, i would not advise using it, even though there are few risks associated with its use.
