Should I eat dairy with kidney stones?

Some studies show that you should consume dairy because it will help you reduce kidney stones because when you consume it, it goes to the digestive system where it binds to the digestive tract and then there’s less binding going on in the kidney through the blood.

But the problem is that a lot of people have milk allergies to the protein in the milk called casein and whey, and some people are also sensitive to lactose (sugar in milk).

Cows consuming grains even if it’s organic, non-GMO, or with no pesticides, are still going to have higher omega 6 fatty acids compared to omega 3 which could increase inflammation.

Oxalate stones have very sharp edges that could cause tearing in the inside of the kidney and could cause bleeding especially if you are jogging. The damage to the filtration of the kidney starts to develop scar tissue that could end up a loss of function in the kidney. The goal is to lessen the inflammation.

It is important to consume foods high in calcium but no dairy unless you are sure that you don’t have any allergies and you are only focused on grass-fed. Calcium helps bind the oxalates in the digestive system. The goal is to decrease the development and formation of oxalate crystals. One of the best remedies for reducing the formation of oxalate crystals and calcium saturation is citrates.

Hydroxy citrate – This is a great remedy especially if you have a stone and you want to prevent getting another stone. Lemon Juice – It is important to add this into the water you drink.

3. Fish

4. Seafood

Types of Citrates:

• Potassium Citrates
