I don’t have any idea what should I avoid eating. Can anyone suggest to me what food should I avoid if I have a kidney stone?
@ishaaan Kidney stones in the urinary tract are formed in several ways. Calcium can combine with chemicals, such as oxalate or phosphorous, in the urine. This can happen if these substances become so concentrated that they solidify. Kidney stones can also be caused by a buildup of uric acid. The uric acid buildup is caused by the metabolism of protein. Here are a few foods that you should avoid, or limit if you have a kidney stone.
You should limit salt intake High sodium levels in the body, can promote calcium buildup in urine. Avoid chocolate, beets, nuts, spinach, and sweet potato.
You should eat citrus fruits, such as oranges, and drink a lot of water.
