Add citrate: Best approach is to add citrate. Citrate interferes with ca x phos and ca x oxalate. Citrate is available by rx as Urocit K and as Bicitra (citric acid and sodium citrate). You can supply citrate with orange juice and ReaLemon extract. These will not alkalinize urine. ...Read more

If too much sugar: It can be bad if the almond milk has sugar added, which it probably does. Drinking sweetened drinks is a fast way to down many, many grams of sugar. Sugar is bad stuff (but a little bit is ok). As for the bone density scan, no worries. Calcium-fortified foods and drinks won't alter one's bone density overnight. ...Read more

Citrate competes with phosphate or oxalate in urine to bind with calcium. Loading with citrate daily will work. You may take potassium citrate by Rx or lemon extract 6 tablespoons/day ...Read more
