I make stones all the time, but the foods I try and stay away from are:
-if you make oxalate stones-stay away from dark green leafy vegetables,chocolate,tea,nuts
-any kind of vitamins in excess amounts can give you stones
-if you make calcium stones do not stray away from calcium totally, just eat the norm, cutting it out totally can cause stones as well
-how I look at it, the darker it is whether drink or food, the harder the kidney works to metabolize it
I hope this helps you a little. If I was to say drink a glass of tea, I always follow it with water to help wash it out of the kidney a little easier
Thanks. I'm a regular coffee drinker and lately coffee has been making me feel nauseous after drinking it. Don't really know what to make of that, but I think I'm going to start weaning myself off it.
I love coffee,, and nuts and chocolate..boohoo!!
I did once, very successfully wean myself off full fat coffee and eventually got onto decaf...not without all the withdrawal symptoms though...now back on the full stuff again...
Shall we start a decaf diet together Eliza??
A very good friend of mine suggested replacing one cup of ordinary coffee a day with decaf, go on like this until you are back on decaf all together...sounds like a plan to me!!
