Can Tums (calcium carbonate) cause kidney stones?

No. Respectfully, calcium restriction is no longer thought to be of benefit in the prevention of kidney stones. Patients with calcium-oxalate stones, benefit from taking Tums (calcium carbonate) with meals. The dietary calcium in the Tums (calcium carbonate) binds to the oxalate in the food, preventing its absorption and ultimate excretion in the urine.
Yes. Tums (calcium carbonate) have calcium in them and excess calcium either stays in the the intestine and goes with a bm or is absorbed and goes out in the urine. Excess use of calcium supplements can lead to stones. That being said we usually don't restrict dietary calcium.
