Kidney stones caused by Vitamin D defficiency and high parathyroid

I have kidney stones.  I was told that the  kidney stones are a result of a high para thyoid level . and a low Vitamin D level.   Has anyone ever gone through this ?    It's all brand new information to me -- and I don't know what to think.

I've had kidney stones for years and was always told it was caused by too much Uric Acid in the body.
Who knows?

Uric acid stones can be maintained with a drug called Alpurinol .. are you on that?  There are other types, too, the most common being calcium oxalate and those are made by too much calicum produced sometimes by the parathyroids not working right.

Yes, the Vitamin D is great and any pain level should get better .. did he suggest Magnesium and low oxalate diet at all?  Have you had your stones analyzed?
