What the heck is oxalate?
Oxalate is a naturally occurring molecule that is found in plants and humans. In plants, oxalate helps get rid of excess calcium. But too much of it in us can cause kidney stones. Oxalate and calcium join together in the kidney and can cause kidney stones. Eighty percent of kidney stones are calcium oxalate.
This is the gold standard oxalate list researched and published by the folks at Harvard. My patients ask me all the time, “why should I trust this list when there are so many out there?” My answer has remained the same for the past 20 years. We (Dr. Coe and I and many other docs out there) trust this list because our patients lower their urine oxalate by using it. We know it works.
Have you been doing keto? Low carb? Are you a vegan? Vegetarian? Have you been eating healthy (lots of almonds and spinach) and lost weight but gained a stone? I have heard these and many other scenarios. Point is, I can help.
There is much more to the Kidney Stone Diet than just lowering oxalate. Join the Kidney Stone Prevention Course to learn how to use the oxalate list and all the elements of the Kidney Stone Diet.
