Could drinking red bull or rockstar energy drinks have a negative side effect which could be kidney stones in men?
Probably not: There are many active ingredients in engery drinks, but taurine, glucuronolactone, and caffeine are the main ones. None of these in a usual energy drink are going to be harmful if taken in moderation (not more than 2 per day). However, taurine can accumulate, although it is not an Amino Acid and therefore does not technical result in stone formation! ...Read more
I am bodybuilder of 25. I suffered kidney stone, which was calcium oxelate. It has passed. Please suggest me diet chart for muscle gain & energy?
Find the cause: Try to figure out why you passed the oxalate stone. Stay well-hydrated at all times. Your physician may test you to see whether you absorb calcium too readily through your gut, and perhaps recommend treatment accordingly. Bodybuilders usually have a high-protein, lowish-carb, lowish-fat moderate-calorie diet and your having a stone should not affect this. ...Read more
Can I take topiramate with kidney stones? It helped give me energy but had some tingling and broke out in pimples. Not sure if related to meds.
Thanks for asking!: This depends on the mineral constituents of the well water and your family history. Renal stones tend to run in families and are often due to subtle abnormalities in various biochemical metabolic pathways. This could make a person susceptible to stones depending on the make up of the well water. Well water should always be tested if individuals have had or have a family history of stones. ...Read more
I am suffering from kidney stone which is now in distal ureter. Can I eat carrot or drink carrot juice?
Sure: Nothing in carrot juice is relevant to kidney stone treatment. Drinking lots of water (which the kidney then eliminates) may help push the stone down the ureter. If you are a "stone-former" I suggest you get an evaluation by a nephrologist to determine possible preventive strategies. ...Read more
I have kidney pain when I drink coffee. I'll stop drinking it but do you think it will give me kidney stones, and is this normal?
Unclear.: "Kidney pain" is rare and usually only accompanies significant illness, like infection or stones. It is not clear that your coffee is causing pain in your kidneys, and coffee is not well related to flank pain in general. Kidney stones have both genetic and dietary predispositions; they are rare in people your age. Please see a doctor to determine the true cause of your flank pain and discuss. ...Read more
Been 2 weeks and still haven't passed 4 mm kidney stones. Is this normal? I'm drinking plenty of fluids and urinate often in the strainer.
I was released from hospital 5 days ago with kidney stone. Was told 6mm. Been drinking lots of water. How much time is needed for stone to pass?
Depends: Spontaneous passage depends on size (diameter)of stone: Under 5mm:75%, 5-7mm:60%, More than 7mm:under 40%. I am sure you were told to strain your urine. If no passage in 2 weeks it is probably a good idea to intervene by your urologist. Also if pain control is a problem. Location of stone is also a factor. Follow your urologist's recommendation. Best wishes for you. ...Read more
I hear kidney stones can be incredibly painful. Does drinking lots of water (staying hydrated) greatly diminish the risk of developing kidney stones?
Kidney stones: 42 M from CA: Does drinking lots of H2O greatly dimenish risk kidney stones? ANS- formation of stones depends on many things. Dilution of stone forming chemicals is a way to stop. In theory at least. But evidence that increasing H20 decreases risk in general has not been tested that I am aware of. Worry about other things unless u/family have had stones. If so find cause of stones & Rx that. ...Read more
I have a kidney stone and feel burning on the left side of my body, that's where it is. Keep thinking its pancreatic related. Don't drink/no gall stones?
What is bad ones?: For most of stone formers, their cause for their stone is idiopathic and related with their inherent low stone inhibitors activity in urine. With no comprehensive stone work-up, no specific recommendation for stone prevention will be given, but keeping daily urine output >2500 cc and decreasing oral consumption of salt, red meat, and dairy products by 50% are a good decent effective advice. ...Read more
Many causes: Depends on what the stone is composed of. See a urologist for guidance. ...Read more
Milk contains calcium, a component of stones. Dehydration is more of a factor in stone production. Unless one has a specific metabolic abnormality, milk ingestion doesn't necessarily cause stones.
Sodas have not been definitively linked to stone production. Caffeine within sodas can dehydrate, however. Dehydration, as mentioned above, is more of a factor in stone production. ...Read more
I just was diagnosed with kidney stones in both my kidneys, what should I be avoiding eating or drinking?
Hydration is the key: Beer has no medicinal properties when it comes to kidney stones. Beer is mostly water. Making 2 liters of urine daily is recommended for prevention. Although alcohol is a diuretic (makes urine fast) it also leaves you dehydrated later, increasing stone formation risk. Water is the key! ...Read more
