Hi,

The most common type of kidney stone is composed of calcium oxalate crystals.  As the amount of calcium intake decreases, the amount of oxalate available for absorption into the bloodstream increases. This oxalate is then excreted in greater amounts into the urine by the kidneys. In the urine, oxalate is a very strong promoter of calcium oxalate precipitation.  

Are there other symptoms present? These crystals usually pass out on their own if they are small. It is recommended that she drink plenty of water and to avoid eating certain foods with high concentration of oxalate, such as starfruit.  Take care and regards.
