• What Could Be Causing My Kidney Stones, etc?

    KIDNEYOf course, ultimately only your doctor (hopefully doctors) can diagnose and treat any type of illness or problem; however, there is research out of Linus Pauling Institute to suggest that, at least in women, kidney stones can often be tied to a lack of Vitamin B6.

    “A group of more than 85,000 women without a prior history of kidney stones were followed over 14 years and those who consumed 40 mg or more of vitamin B6 daily had only two thirds the risk of developing kidney stones compared with those who consumed 3 mg or less.” Of course, as always research on this topic continues.

    Although there are plenty of “bad” foods that claim to be “good” foods because they are fortified with this vitamin, the best food sources of B6 are chicken, salmon, turkey, and shrimp. Although I enjoy eating all of these, I’m afraid I often fall short in the daily RDA; therefore, I take a sublingual daily supplement.

    Other vitamins important to the health of your kidneys are Vitamins E, D, and C (See below for C.). If you are struggling with any type of kidney malady, it might be worth a simple blood test to see just where your levels of these vitamins fall and remember, there are many doctors who never consider the nutritional connection between what we eat and the illnesses that beset us.

      When a stone causes no symptoms, watchful waiting is a valid option. For symptomatic stones, pain control is usually the first measure, using medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or opioids. :;’.
