Has anyone with kidney stones tried vitamin B6 and magnesium?
Has anyone here with kidney stones tried vitamin B6 and magnesium to prevent new stones from forming?
I read a study that concluded that taking 50 mg of B6 daily with 300 mg of magnesium oxide (one of the least absorbable forms of magnesium) will prevent future kidney stones. I also read that potassium and B6 does the same. Perhaps the magnesium works because potassium is better absorbed if there is sufficient magnesium.
Anyway I've been taking these supplements for about six months and was jus t wondering if anyone else here has done the same with success?
I've had low magnesium levels for decades due to undiagnosed insulin resistance and then 2 years of severe magnesium deficiency due to surgery and then taking high doses of vitamin D. I had over 50 + symptoms including a calcified mitral heart valve but no kidney stones.
I drink a LOT of water (thirst is one of my symptom of insulin resistance and this symptom worsened when I had severe magnesium deficiency). Dehydration is the major cause of kidney stones. If you already have the kidney stone/s, then magnesium helps because this mineral dissolves calcium (the most common type of kidney stone is calcium oxalate).
