Not normal, but.....: It may be expected if you have chronic infection or due to stone disease. Make sure your urinalysis is normal. Discuss with your doc if you need to see a nephrologist who has interest in managing stone disease. His job will be to prevent increasing stone disease burden and to make sure your parathyroid (not thyroid) is not hyperactive. Urologist is the only one who can remove stones if needed.
