Kidney Stone Diet Podcast!

I teamed up with Vincent Cilento, who has created the “Low Oxalate Kitchen” brand and podcast to educate people about a low oxalate diet. Low Oxalate Kitchen comes out of Vincent’s passion for educate people about oxalate and find true, science-based information about oxalate

Vincent and I recorded 2 podcasts together to cover all aspects of a healthy kidney stone diet. In our first podcast, I talk with Vincent, from Low Oxalate Kitchen about how sugar and protein in your diet can impact kidney stone formation.

In the second podcast, Vincent and I discuss how sodium and calcium fit into a healthy kidney stone diet.

You can listen to these podcasts directly from the Low Oxalate Kitchen’s website. Or, you can find them wherever you usually listen to podcasts.

  1. You mentioned protein contributing to oxalate formation in the liver. Then Vincent said something about posting a list of amino acids. But I couldn’t find it. I take l tryptophan to help me sleep. Would I be better off without it?

      The liver can make oxalate from tryptophan. However, I don’t know of any studies that have shown tryptophan contributes to stones (that I know of). However, depending on your urine oxalate levels, it might make sense to avoid. However, sleep is super important for health as well! Id ask your dietitian to help you weigh the risks and benefits of this one!
