More information on kidney stone causes
I just posted a post on some of the more common kidney stone causes and also listed some suggestions for preventing the development of kidney stones. You can read part one on kidney stone causes here
In researching just a bit more, I found some information suggesting that eating foods that contain a substance called Oxalate may contribute to the development of calcium oxalate kidney stones so if you are prone to those, you may want to avoid foods that are high in oxalates.
According to The National Kidney and Neurologic Diseases Clearing House (whew, try saying that three times fast) foods that are high in oxalates include sweet potatos, okra, chocolate, beets, wheat germ, chard, rhubarb, peanuts, black tea and soybean crackers.
Odd that they listed soybean crackers but not soy in general. Not sure why.
Anyway, there’s more info on causes of kidney stones, symptoms and traditional treatments there on that site.
