Can baking soda dissolve calcium oxalate and urid acid kidney stones?

Can baking soda dissolve calcium oxalate and urid acid kidney stones?

Not your best choice: Don't get your hopes up. Sodium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) (baking soda) is a poor alkalinizer of the urine as the body turns it into carbon dioxide (which is exhaled) and table salt; all you've done is sodium-load yourself. You'll have trouble getting calcium oxalate to dissolve in anything, but your urologist may try some other alkalinizer to perhaps help a uric acid stone; don't get your hopes up. ...Read more

If you have a prior history of stone, taking the regular usrda of calcium is recommended. ...Read more

Will high oxalate intake lead to kidney stones?

Will high oxalate intake lead to kidney stones?

^Na, malabsorption,: A high sodium, or na intake, and hypercalcemia, a malabsorption syndrome(s) where calcium is bound in the intestinal tract, and high uric acid in blood and urine all help form stones, specifically calcium oxalate stones. They cause a high concentration of calcium and/or oxalate in the urine and make formation of stones more likely. High oxalate may do it, but not likely if above are abscent. ...Read more

Our kidneys produce some citrate naturally, but diet intake of citrate from lemon and orange is very important. Urocit K is excellent as a strategic additional source of citrate. Potassium also mutes stone formation somewhat. Minimize salt. Minimize meats. Drink 3-4 liters per day. ...Read more

Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe, two parathyroids removed in 2004.

Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe,  two parathyroids removed in 2004.

Uncertain: These test results don't add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels. Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again. ...Read more
