Best wishes. ...Read more

A stent can also open up the blockage and help relieve pressure on the obstructed kidney. ...Read more

Does whey protein and creatine powder harm to kidney stone patients? Should I stop or continue taking it? Stone size 3.4mm on right and 3.2mm in left.

Are there other concerns (i.e. renal disease, hyperparathyroidism) that affect your calcium balance? I would avoid any excess/supplemental calcium for now in favor of a regular balanced diet and more data from past PCPs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
