I don’t like looking at guides that quantify the amount of oxalate in a food with the subjective words “High, Low, or Moderate.” I would prefer to know specifically how many mg of oxalates I am allowed per day, and specifically how many mg of oxalate a food contains, per measure specified. That would allow me to mix and match and feel less patronized.
Will consuming a lot of calcium show up in my blood work? My doctor is worried about my calcium level and after assuring her my diet is the cause, I read online that high calcium levels can indicate potential cancer. I am supposed to go back for more blood work in six months. Should I do anything differently?

And I am not sure if you are talking about high urine calcium or blood calcium. Both are different and caused by different things.
