Cata had a renal colic yesterday and the ultrasound showed two rather big kidney stones.
GI sais Crohn's pacients are prone to kidney stones. Urologist sais she could be taking too much calcium with the supplements.
Any experience or info you could share would be great... I always find the best answers here!

Cata, you need to know what kind of stones they are. Some are calcium some are uric acid. Uric acid stones can be helped with meds like Allapurinal (spl) calcium stones with diet. Also avoid diet high in pureen such as liver, sweet peas, turkey. You can get a list from your doc. Drink plenty of water, tea and soft drinks dont count as water either. I still get the little jewels because the water that should be flushing out my kidneys is going out of the other exit but the meds and diet have stopped the one a week I use to get. Hope this helps a little.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Thank you very much! Her stones dis not show up on the xray as the did on the ultra sounf, so I guess they are uric acid, not calcium. She's getting a Litholink lab, so I guess that will give us exact composition. Thanks again
