    Did you ever consider lowering your vegetable intake? Oxalates in particular?

    I don't remember any more what else I was eating then instead of starches. The only reason I checked myself was as a "control" to compare to my husband's urine because he had developed gout. He had no crystals and I was stunned to see that I did. His urine pH was normal, mine was way down, which would have contributed to why that type of crystal had formed. Oxalates could have compounded it. I should test myself more often.

    I had to learn the hard way that, for me, many vegetables present more problems than good; contrary to what we are told. This video is great!

    I'm thinking oxalate issues are indicative that one's Kreb's Bicycle sprung a flat.

    Possibly too much turmeric and cinnamon?

    Interesting. I have so much to dig deeper with.

    To the extent the oxalate issue is calcium oxalate crystals in the urine, they are precipitated out by a very acid urine. This is more typical of a high meat diet than a high vegetable/fruit diet. The amount of oxalate in my system may have been largely irrelevant in the context of everything else I was eating, or not eating. I was attempting a ketogenic diet (without checking ketone levels at the time so I don't know if I was in ketosis) which is why I immediately backed off of that.

    In the cat world (cats are prone to urinary tract issues), the type of crystal or stone is important, because different conditions produce different crystals and stones. And why I thought it might be important for Sampath to know exactly what he's dealing with.

    OTOH we have seen discussions that in 5G world glycine and vitamin C are protective.

    The way I understand it is that if you have an oxalate issue you have a metabolic disorder and you really ought to address that instead of playing the oxalate, heavy metal, dust mite, toxic mold, or any number of one-dimensional scare games.

    Changing a diet short term for comfort sounds fine, but playing those scare games longterm seems like wasting time until another system breaks down.

    Both Doc and Somlyai give us keys for metabolic disorders.

    Yes, to both.
    Short term changes are useless (including vacations to excellent places)

    @Sampath did body composition analysis. He looks relatively lean, but that is deceiving.
    he have way too much fat.
    That must go away.

    Why is it necessarily an “oxalate issue” or even a metabolic disorder? What you eat can affect pH of the urine. The pH of urine can drive what types of crystals form. Potentially all very normal metabolic function. The question would be, if it’s a reflection of diet, should that diet change? Maybe that is all that is needed. Or maybe the urine is too concentrated (high specific gravity) and more water should be consumed (or the matrix encouraged to make more). I’m an oddball in that I can check stuff like this for myself at home. A student grade microscope is all you need. Crystal types are very distinctive. But it starts with knowing what crystal type. Crystals grow into stones. Sampath wanted to know how to get rid of kidney stones. Knowing what kind of stone he's dealing with could be helpful to him.

    Please post links to least expensive microscope that would be acceptable for the job.
    Please post links to any additional stuff one will need
    Please post instructions.
    Thank you.

    Having data is good. Addressing the real cause is hopefully the aim.

    I'm for any short term change that opens eyes or improves cognition, whatever it may be.
