What causes calcium oxalate crystals out of your body?

What causes calcium oxalate crystals out of your body?

Depends: Many people make innumerable tiny crystals that continually pass out in the urine. If they stick together, the conglomerate becomes a kidney or ureteral stone.

Stone formers are best served by preventing more stones by hydration +/- medication. ...Read more

Can 15 mm stone calcium oxalate be dissolve naturally?

Can 15 mm stone calcium oxalate be dissolve naturally?

Kidney stone.: Kidney stones up to 5mm in size will predictably pass on their own. You would just drink plenty of water so you produce a lot of urine, dilate those ureters and allow the stone to pass. It may hurt while it's on its way out, but it'll pass. A 15mm stone isn't going anywhere, and if it decides to try to leave you it's going to get stuck. You need a Urologist. ...Read more

They found in my urine test small amount of calcium oxalate found. is it normal?

That could be normal: Seeing some calcium oxalate crystals in the urine under microscopic exam is nothing usual and common, and carries no clinical significance for most although calcium oxalate - monhydrate or dihydrate - is known to be the most common composition of urinary stone.

In my last urinalyses, they found "occ calcium oxalate". In the one before, they found "2+ amorphous". What does this mean and should I be concerned?
