That article is VERY interesting. I shared it with my endocrinologist's PA in hopes that a nurse will share it, being that docs have not, in my case.
Having had stones since 1997, practically every 8 weeks for so many years, with all my doctors only saying to me the following:
"If you are a stone maker, you are a stone maker...there's nothing much you can do about it...'
"Your stone was made up of Calcium Oxalate...most stones are made of the same...it is common, it is not one of the stones you can treat.'
"You need to be on a Calcium Oxalate Diet in order to prevent stones...Here is a list of Oxalate Rich Foods...Good luck!!"
"You need in increase your water intake"
The end. Nothing else.
I suggested to my ENDO that perhaps someone would like to study why I stopped having stones on Betaseron Injections.
I think it is very interesting that also for the last year, I have 'craved Lemonade' and have made it and drank fresh lemonade daily. This study actually validates it as a stone deterrent.
Isn't God amazing how he protects us with cravings!!??!!
The study was done by a nurse!! That is encouraging!!
Of course, I also think every Kidney stone maker should be watched for Primary Hyperparathyroidism too and should be followed with regular PTH, Calcium and Vit D and D 1,25 levels as well.
Primary HPT was not even considered on me though every doctor KNEW I had regular stones...I wonder why?
