In brief: Med & diet

Ca-oxalate is most common kidney stone.
Citrate inhibits these stones by making urine more basic. Mixing 4 ozs.lemon juice in 2 liters water(lemonade)but go easy on sugar.Low oxalate diet is important.Not enough space to list high oxalate foods to cut down but easy to look up online.Even though Vit.C is metabolized to oxalate,it was found that there is no need to limit it bc v,low amt.Good luck.
