Can tea really give you kidney stones?

Evidence is scanty


The pop idea is that iced tea is loaded with oxalate the causes stones. Some foods (famously rhubarb) have very high levels & do seem linked with stones. I searched the NIH database for the past two decades and found one uncontrolled study in an obscure Eastern European journal, two finding green tea drinkers have FEWER kidney stones & couldn't find the hyped 2012 "Loyola" study.

milk and other dairy products usually has very little to do with kidney stone formation. Unfortuanately, many health care providers still tell patients this.

It can but careful!


Heat can relieve the pain; have to be careful as it can cause burns. It may also cause some chronic changes in the skin if used for a long time. It is better to get treated.

That seems tough.


Pain of kidney stone is usually pretty severe. I give my patients narcotics when the going gets rough. I understand many docs don't want to write for narcs anymore as the state and feds are trying very hard to curb an epidemic of overdose, but seems like you have a legitimate need.

See a nephrologist


If kidney stones are recurring, probably need to see a nephrologist. May need further testing to find the cause and for specific treatment based on the test results depending on the type of stone and chemical concentrations in urine.

Can kidney stones give you burning pain on lower right ab and sharp pain around end of penis? The burning pain on ab comes random.

Yes


see a physician for urinalysis and urine culture to rule out UTI. You may need a non-contrast CT to rule out stone though.
