Medullary Nephrocalcinosis

Hi everyone,
Following Microscopic Haematuria, My daughter has been diagnosed with Medullary Nephrocalcinosis. The ultrasound also states 'No Hydronephrosis of obvious calculi seen'
Her Renal function tests are:
Sodium      141  mmol/L 133-146
Potassium   3.9  mmol/L 3.5-5.0
Creatinine   46  umol/L 46-70
Is this condition curable or reversable
What food will protect her kidneys and stop the condition from progressing further. What food is good at breaking down and expelling the calcium formed on the kidneys.
Any additional info or advise will be greatly appreciated.

It depends what her 24hr urine tests reveal, for the doc to try and figure out what foods to avoid, etc.
