Diet Chart for Kidney Stone
Diet and the oxalate content of foods is key factor when trying to reduce calcium oxalate crystals from forming in the kidneys
Although most patients describe calcium oxalate kidney crystals as “the most painful thing they have ever experienced,” the compliance with typical restricted diet recommendations is still very low as oxalates are found naturally in numerous foods… including many healthy ones!
As high as 50% of prior calcium oxalate crystal suffers will have a recurrence within five years of experiencing their first calcium oxalate crystal in the kidneys. With that in mind, it is always useful to refer to a kidney stone diet chart to confirm the oxalate levels or certain foods.
The Oxalate Diet & Oxalate Containing Foods
Diet can help and should complement any measures used to reduce calcium oxalate crystal growth. Below is an oxalate list of high, medium and low levels of oxalates (or a kidney stone diet chart). High oxalate foods should be avoided. While on an oxalate diet, try to consume foods from the low and moderate list.
