Medical Treatment of The Common Type of Kidney Stones

 The most common kidney stones comprise of Calcium and Oxalate, hence these are called Calcium Oxalate stones. In the genetically susceptible individuals, Calcium and Oxalate, when present in large quantities supersaturate in the acidic concentrated urine and stone formation takes place. Therefore, it is important to prevent dehydration, keep urine alkaline (pH more than 7), and reduce the amount of Calcium and Oxalate in the urine. 

Here are steps you can take to reduce the chances of recurrent kidney stone formation: 

Blood test for Calcium, Phosphate, Parathyroid Hormone (PTH), 25 hydroxy vitamin D, 1,25 dihydroxy vitamin D, Uric acid, Potassium, Chloride and Bicarbonate.  

24-urine test for pH, Calcium, Phosphate, Oxalate, Citrate and Uric acid.  

Drink plenty of liquids to urinate at least 2.5 liter per day. Beer may be helpful in this regard.

Decrease the intake of foods which are high in Oxalate. These include legumes (peas, peanuts, beans, lentils), tea, chocolate, wheat bran and nuts. 

Increase vegetables and fruits intake which will make your urine alkaline. However, spinach, strawberries, beets, okra and rhubarb are exceptions as these are high in Oxalate. 

Do not limit the intake of Calcium, as Calcium in your diet binds Oxalate, thereby decreasing the amount of oxalate in the urine. Use at least 2 servings of dairy such as yogurt, milk, cheese. Otherwise, take Calcium Citrate 600 mg twice a day with meals. 

Decrease your salt intake to 2 gm per day. Decreasing the salt intake reduces the amount of Calcium excreted in the urine. 

Limit the amount of meats as these make urine acidic. Limiting the meat intake will also reduce the amount of Uric acid in the urine. 

Add Hydrochlorthiazide 25-50 mg per day which will reduce the amount of Calcium excreted in the urine. 

Add Potassium Citrate 30-60 meq per day to replenish Potassium loss in the urine due to Hydrochlorthiazide. In addition, Citrate in the urine helps to prevent stone formation. Monitor serum Potassium every 3 months. 

If urinary Uric acid is high, add Allopurinol 100 mg per day. 

Monitor 24-hour urine periodically to ensure that the calcium and oxalate are going down, pH and citrate are going up, and uric acid is going down in case it was high in the first place.
