  1. Hi Melanie, My recent blood test, show my calcium is high, trying to avoid kidney stones and by eating recommended 1,200 mg. of calcium – EX. ate daily ( 2 slices of swiss cheese, oat milk 8oz, and for snack 1-yogurt , or sour cream).

    Can you please tell me , how can I level my calcium to a normal range.?

    Thank you for the low oxalate trail mix .

    1. Hi Melanie,
      Thank you for your response. This helps – I will eat less calcium foods only 900-1000mg, instead of 1200mg or more.

      Great! I purchased the Kidney Stone Guide already. I will review it again.
      I’m SURE I need to attend the Nutrition classes also, to create meal plans that’s right and healthy for me.

      You are helping so many – Continue to Do What you do in the world of Kidney Stones people.
      Thank you so much,

  2. Isn’t chocolate is loaded with oxalates? It is not listed under your ingredients for the Low Ox Trail Mix. Is white chocolate really OK? Also, I wanted to say that I loved your interview with a couple (whose names I can’t remember) in which you differentiated calcium — one was ingested calcium (I think); the other was internal (uric I think). Do you remember the labels you came up with “on the fly’? It was perfect!

      White chocolate doesn’t have ANY actual cocoa in it – it is just sugar and some fat essentially. So yes – white chocolate is essentially oxalate free. I’m really not sure which interview you are referring to and not sure what labels I made up! Sorry!

      Most grocery stores carry them. If you have it, Trader Joes is a great place to find stuff like this as well!

  3. I’ve just signed up and appreciate your blog. How can I find recipes that are GF, DF as well as low oxalates to not make worse uric stones? Thank you.

      Hi Gael! Welcome! I don’t necessarily categorize my recipes as gluten or dairy free. I would note that oxalate is not a concern for uric acid kidney stones – you can learn more about them there! Also, dairy is generally a good thing for kidney stone prevention, primarily for calcium oxalate kidney stones. Dairy wouldn’t necessarily be a good or bad thing for uric acid kidney stones. I hope that helps!
