Diet For Kidney Stone Patient

Based on the type of kidney stone you had, you may be able to prevent kidney stones by making changes in how much sodium, animal protein, calcium, or oxalate is in the food you eat.

You may need to change what you eat and drink for these types of kidney stones:

  1. Calcium oxalate stones
  2. Calcium phosphate stones
  3. Uric acid stones
  4. Cystine stones

1. Calcium oxalate stones:

If you’ve had calcium oxalate stones, you may want to avoid these foods to help reduce the amount of oxalate in your urine:

  • Nuts and nut products
  • Peanuts—which are legumes, not nuts, and are high in oxalate
  • Rhubarb
  • Spinach
  • Wheat bran

#reduce sodium

Your chance of developing kidney stones increases when you eat more sodium. Sodium is a part of salt. Sodium is in many canned, packaged, and fast foods. It is also in many condiments, seasonings, and meats.

#limit animal protein

Eating animal protein may increase your chances of developing kidney stones.

  • Limit eating animal protein, including
  • Beef, chicken, and pork, especially organ meats
  • Eggs
  • Fish and shellfish
  • Milk, cheese, and other dairy products

Although you may need to limit how much animal protein you eat each day, you still need to make sure you get enough protein. Consider replacing some of the meat and animal protein you would typically eat with beans, dried peas, and lentils, which are plant-based foods that are high in protein and low in oxalate.

Get enough calcium from foods

Even though calcium sounds like it would be the cause of calcium stones, it’s not. In the right amounts, calcium can block other substances in the digestive tract that may cause stones. It may be best to get calcium from low-oxalate, plant-based foods such as calcium-fortified juices, cereals, breads, some kinds of vegetables, and some types of beans. 

2. Calcium phosphate stones:

Reduce sodium: Your chance of developing kidney stones increases when you eat more sodium. Sodium is a part of salt. Sodium is in many canned, packaged, and fast foods. It is also in many condiments, seasonings, and meats.

Limit animal protein: Eating animal protein may increase your chances of developing kidney stones.

Limit eating animal protein, including Beef, chicken, and pork, especially organ meats eggs fish and shellfish milk, cheese, and other dairy products. Although you may need to limit how much animal protein you have each day, you still need to make sure you get enough protein.

Consider replacing some of the meat and animal protein you would typically eat with some of these plant-based foods that are high in protein:
1. Legumes such as beans, dried peas, lentils, and peanuts
2. Soy foods, such as soy milk, soy nut butter, and tofu
3. Nuts and nut products, such as 4. Almonds and almond butter, cashews and cashew butter, walnuts, and 5. Pistachios
6. Sunflower seeds

Get enough calcium from foods

Even though calcium sounds like it would be the cause of calcium stones, it’s not. In the right amounts, calcium can block other substances in the digestive tract that may lead to stones. Talk with a health care professional about how much calcium you should eat to help prevent getting more calcium phosphate stones and to support strong bones. It may be best to get calcium from plant-based foods such as calcium-fortified juices, cereals, breads, some kinds of vegetables, and some types of beans. Ask a dietitian or other health care professional which foods are the best sources of calcium for you.

3. Uric acid stones:

Limit animal protein
Eating animal protein may increase your chances of developing kidney stones.

A health care professional may tell you to limit eating animal protein, including
Beef, chicken, and pork, especially organ meats eggs fish and shellfish milk, cheese, and other dairy products
Although you may need to limit how much animal protein you have each day, you still need to make sure you get enough protein. 

Consider replacing some of the meat and animal protein you would typically eat with some of these plant-based foods that are high in protein:

Legumes such as beans, dried peas, lentils, and peanuts
Soy foods, such as soy milk, soy nut butter, and tofu
Nuts and nut products, such as almonds and almond butter, cashews and cashew butter, walnuts, and pistachios
Sunflower seeds

Talk with a health care professional about how much total protein you should eat and how much should come from animal or plant-based foods.

Losing weight if you are overweight is especially important for people who have had uric acid stones.

4. Cystine stones:

Drinking enough liquid, mainly water, is the most important lifestyle change you can make to prevent cystine stones. Talk with a health care professional about how much liquid you should drink.

Tips to reduce your sodium intake: Adults should aim to consume less than 2, 300 mg a day. 3 one teaspoon of table salt has 2, 325 milligrams (mg) of sodium. If you have had calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate stones, you should follow this guideline, even if you take medicine to prevent kidney stones.

Here are some tips to help you reduce your sodium intake:

Check the percent daily value (%dv) for sodium on the nutrition facts label found on many foods. Low in sodium is 5% or less, and high in sodium is 20% or more.

  • Image of a nutrition label
  • Consider writing down how much sodium you consume each day.
  • When eating out, ask about the sodium content in the food.
  • Cook from scratch. Avoid processed and fast foods, canned soups.

Look for foods labeled: sodium free, salt free, very low sodium, low sodium, reduced or less sodium, light in sodium, no salt added, unsalted, and lightly salted.

  • Check labels for ingredients and hidden sodium, such as sodium bicarbonate, the chemical name for baking soda
  • Baking powder, which contains sodium bicarbonate and other chemicals
  • Disodium phosphate
  • Monosodium glutamate, or msg
  • Sodium alginate
  • Sodium nitrate or nitrite.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones.

I have this pain when I go to urinate. I can not wait long for urinating it hurts when I do not go. My gynae gave me meds for a UTI which includes an antibiotic, a medicine for gas which I am taking twice a day. I got myself for any infections but the reports came normal. Sometimes the burning remains even after I urinate. My urine has no smell. If I drink around 3 litres of water a day, the pain reduces but doesn't go away. I am about to complete my course of medicines in 2 more days. But I am afraid it's more than a simple local infection.

Homeopath, Surat
In summer season many females suffering from same complain. This is due physiology of female urinary tract. What happened is that due to heat more part of body water evaporate in form of sweat. So urine becomes acidic and it lead to burning and pain while urinating. Nothing to worry please complete the course which your doctor suggest you and follow up with them. You will be completely okay. Keep in mind that drink as much fluid as you can. Maintain hygiene of your urinary tract.

How Ayurveda Helps Deal With Kidney Issues?

Two kidneys are present on either side of the spine, above the waist. The kidneys perform important functions of cleansing the blood, controlling blood pressure and maintaining salt and mineral balances. Kidney related issues are to be treated as soon as they occur as failing to do so might lead to kidney failure, which is a serious condition.

Ayurvedic approach for treating kidney related problems
Each type of medical treatment has their distinctive approaches towards such treatment and so does Ayurvedic care. The weak body is toned up in a natural way in the first stage. The second stage is the prevention of diseases using natural remedies and the final stage is treatment through ayurvedic care.

Causes for kidney related issues and Ayurvedic care for such issues
The causes for kidney related issues are toxins, anatomical abnormalities, abiotic stress, mental imbalance, the easy entrance of microvita, and side effects of various allopathic medicines. One major reason for kidney related problems is the side effects of modern medicines or over dosage of allopathic medication. On the contrary, the medication system of Ayurveda effectively treats all the issues in a natural way without imposing ill-effects to the human body.

When to seek Ayurvedic care?
A few symptoms, the occurrence of which indicates that you should consult a doctor for checking of kidney related issues are nausea, weakness, ankle swelling, vomiting and shortness of breath. A few other symptoms are high blood pressure or urea and decreased hemoglobin. If these symptoms are due to kidney related problems, Ayurveda cure for kidney related issues is one of the best options for recovery.

Prevention of kidney failure- Ayurveda treatment to avoid dialysis
"Prevention is better than cure." If kidney problems arise, it is best to take preventive measures to avoid kidney failure. A few things that help in preventing kidney failure are controlling blood pressure, controlling blood sugar and improving breathing pattern. Diet plays a major role in preventing kidney failure. Ayurveda approach insists the change of acidic diet to an alkaline one. Diabetes and blood sugar can also lead to kidney failure. According to Ayurveda, natural remedies are available to treat chronic kidney failure patients. Dialysis can be avoided and the kidney functions can be restored with the help of a few herbal remedies in the Ayurveda approach. The level of creatinine and urea are controlled effectively by Ayurveda treatment

Recovery using Ayurveda care for kidney failure patients
Kidney damage for a period of 3 months or more is known as chronic kidney failure. The treatment of underlying cause, treatment of damaged kidneys and treatment of dhatus (body tissues) which makes up the kidneys are done in the case of Ayurvedic care. The kidneys are made up of "Rakta" and "Meda" and treating these two will lead to recovery. The benefits of using Ayurvedic medications for kidney related issues are plenty. The kidney damage is recovered, the risk of death can be reduced to a significant extent and frequency of dialysis can be minimized effectively. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

I am type 2 diabetics patient last 1 week I have blooding in urine and burning and itching pleas any suggestion or treatment.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Since you have diabetes, I hope it is in control, because if not then other infections also will be difficult to control. As regards blood in urine and irritation, it appears there is urinary tract infection. Therefore, it is necessary to get a routine urine examination done with microscopy. This will help in finding out if there is infection. Plus you need to take a course of antibiotic for about 2 weeks. Along with that will have to drink plenty of water and also take an alkaliser, which will help reduce irritation. Plus see that your fasting glucose is <100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% < 6.8. Thanks.
