See below: You may need to ask your doctor if possible for a diet with avoiding high oxalate food eg no nuts, strawbwerry, and no vit c and other food substances
also maintain adequate calcium intake which binds up the oxalate and eliminates it in the stools
good water intake to keep urine output about 3 liters a day.
