Seriously- renal stones are the result of postive and negatively charged particles in urine binding together and precipitating as solids- most frequently as calcium- oxalate.

How can I avoid getting kidney stones or gallstones on a VLCD? Why causes these to occur? Is it the weight loss itself that causes this?
Stones and VLCD: Kidney stones should not occur on a VLCD if you drink plenty of liquids, and assuming you do not have an abnormality in calcium metabolism. Gallstones are different. Less food= less bile = sludge and small stones, which can occasionally cause colic. The risk is small, but ursodiol can prevent this. Talk to your doc. Gallstones are common; you may have before you start the diet. ...Read more
