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

If peanut butter is healthy in moderation, can a person prone to kidney stones still eat it because of its high oxalate level?

Avoiding these stones involves drinking fluids, avoiding oxalate contaning foods in excess, and consuming calcium containing foods - calcium binds oxalate in the gut, preventing its absorption. Spinach is actually one of the foods highest in oxalate! ...Read more

I : I believe you are more concerned ( and frustrated) with failing to lose weight than you are by the scale moves up and down by several pounds. You would not be upset, i would guess if the scale kept showing lower numbers with your effort. Weight loss is difficult. If you are not losing then you are taking in and burning up around the same amount of calories. Multiple steps are needed to make progress. I suggest you consider tracking calories and activity using an online site or joining a program such as weight watchers. Fluid shifts can explain changes in weight during the day. By the way, most experts do not recommend reducing meat intake to reduce kidney stone recurrence. An analysis of your urine from a 24 hours collection usually guides changes in diet, and need for medication. If you have uric acid stones, you may have an acid urine or might excrete too much uric acid. The treatment is usually medication which works better than restricting meat intake. ...Read more
