Please be aware that I cannot reply to email questions about your kidney stones.  Appropriate medical care can not be dispensed in this manner.  Additionally, new government regulations (HIPAA) do not allow for transmission of personal medical information by email.  I recommend you direct your questions to your primary medical doctor, nephrologist, or urologist.  This website is meant to serve as an aid for you to understand your kidney stone problems and the recommendations of your doctor. You should not use it to formulate a treatment plan.  Treatment of kidney stones will be affected by your other medical condition.  Your personal physician should determine the optimal medical and dietary plan for you.

I also cannot refer you to physicians in your home area with expertise in recurrent kidney stones; you local doctor should be able to help you with this.
