What's to be done to prevent recurrent kidney stones (calcium oxalate)?

Urine analysis

Calcium
Most people who have passed on stone will pass another stone in their lifetime. If the stones are of a certain type (calcium oxalate), certain changes in behavior or medicines can be helpful. In all cases, the focus should be producing large amounts of dilute urine by drinking water (at least two liters). This makes it less likely for small stones (gravel) to form into bigger stones.

If my kidney stones are made of calcium phosphate & calcium oxalate, what foods should i avoid?

Stones

Calcium
You should avoid oxalate rich foods such as spinach, black tea, nuts, etc, you can find list online, however more importantly you should increase your intake of citrate rich foods (lemonade). However more importantly you should increase your water intake to at least 2 L a day, also this might sound contra intuitive but you should increase your dietary Calcium intake (milk and milk pyoducts).

If I have calcium-oxalate kidney stones, what diet should I follow to prevent the formation of more stones?

It depends

Kidneys
There are several causes for calcium oxalate stones. If the problem is due to high calcium in your urine, about 50% of the time, limiting calcium intake will have an effect. If you have renal leak hypercalcuria, then diet changes won't help but thiazide medications will. Some people have hyper parathyroid disease and diet changes wont help.

85% of US stones

The majority of kidney stones in United States or of calcium oxalate composition. Contrary to popular belief, intake of dietary calcium has little to do with the rate of formation. In fact, restricting calcium in one's diet may increase the rate of formation. One should strive to drink enough fluid to make 2 L of urine per day. Restricting hi oxalate containing foods is also helpful.

No

The epithelial cells indicate there's some contamination from your vagina, where there are always some white blood cells also. Calcium oxalate in solution is not a problem; some of it precipiates as the urine cools. Stop worrying.

Sir, Can i take protein diet like egg, chicken? I had a calcium oxalate stone but not now. will protein diet harmful for kidney or cause a stone?

Stones and protein

Diet
In general, high protein diets are not great for people who make kidney stones. There are many reasons for this. A normal protein diet is most beneficial. However, everyone is diferent, and you may benefit from specific tests that your urologist can perform that may allow him/her to more specifically tailor a diet that will maximize your health and minimize your risk of more stones.
