Cystine stones: Cystine stones result from a rare genetic disorder that causes Amino Acid cystine to leak through the kidneys and into the urine to form crystals. Alkalinizing urine helps increase cystine solubility. You may want to take sodium bicarbonate tablets for this purpose. Keep yourself well hydrated and take pain/antionflmatory meds as needed.

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.

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

Barley, causes diuresis (like beer) hence the reputation. But citrated fluids e.g. Limeade, crystal lite, fresca, add citrate to urine which prevents particle aggregation making stones. I prefer the latter drinks. If chf, fluid intake needs doctor supervision. ...Read more
