People with kidney stones should increase their tolerance to calcium-rich foods such as whole grains, low-fat milk, dark greens, nuts and fruits with a high citric acid content such as oranges and lemons.
Drink enough water daily for 6-8 glasses because kidney stones are at risk of forming when the body is deprived of water.
Foods rich in oxalate content such as spinach combined with foods rich in calcium are also very useful for kidney stone patients.
Calcium and oxalates bind together in the intestine to form substances that disrupt the formation of stones.
In addition, it is necessary to eat foods rich in vitamin D every day to help the body absorb more calcium.
Vitamin D is found in fatty fish such as salmon, mushrooms, and cheese.
Foods to limit
People diagnosed with calcium oxalate stones should limit their intake of chocolate, peanuts, wheat okra… because these are all foods with high oxalate content that can increase the risk of recurrence of the disease.
Besides, people with kidney stones should also limit salty eating.
