If you have kidney stones, there are certain foods that you may want to limit or avoid in your diet. Some of these foods include:

  1. Salt: A high intake of salt can increase the risk of kidney stones.
  2. Animal protein: Foods like red meat, poultry, and seafood are high in animal protein and can increase the risk of kidney stones.
  3. Oxalate-rich foods: Foods that are high in oxalates, such as spinach, nuts, chocolate, and rhubarb, can increase the risk of kidney stones.
  4. Calcium-rich foods: It’s important to maintain adequate calcium intake, but too much calcium from supplements or a high intake of calcium-rich foods, such as dairy products, can increase the risk of kidney stones.
  5. High-sugar foods and drinks: A high intake of sugar can increase the risk of kidney stones.

It’s important to note that everyone is different, and the specific foods that may increase the risk of kidney stones for one person may not be the same for another. It’s always a good idea to speak with a healthcare provider or a registered dietitian for personalized dietary recommendations.
