I had a triple phase CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis today because I had blood in my urine (hematuria).
The scan showed there are some very large uric acid kidney stones in my left kidney.The latest CT scanner draws a graph and the color of the graph shows what type of kidney stones are there. A urologist will tell me next week what action has to be taken.

I have eaten a low carb diet for the last 5 years since a 3mm uric acid stone was removed from one of my kidneys.I had narrowing of one of my ureters and a stent was put in for a week to widen the ureter.
Apparently, meat ,fish,shellfish and eggs contain purines which break down into uric acid in the urine.
Some say people who form uric acid stones should limit their meat consumption to 6 ounces each day.

Studies have shown that being overweight increases the risk of uric acid kidney stones. One website claims diets that are low in carbohydrates have been shown to further increase the risk of uric acid stones
[  http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/KUDiseases/pubs/kidneystonediet/   ]

Drinking enough fluid is the most important thing a person can do to prevent kidney stones. Drink enough fluid to make at least 2 liters of urine a day.Studies have shown that fructose increases uric acid.I haven't eaten much fructose.

People with kidney stones face a higher risk for chronic kidney disease, particularly if they also have diabetes, high blood pressure, or frequent urinary tract infections. Having chronic kidney disease, in turn, can increase the risk for a heart attack. Researchers have found that in general, kidney stones increase the risk for a heart attack by more than a third (as well as the risk for certain other disorders), independent of their effect on chronic kidney disease.

I have been on Allopurinol for 10 years now for gout. No side effects from it and no gout symptoms anymore.

Same as Lindy - been on it 10 years no side effects whatsoever and not a single episode of gout during this time. Had blood work done recently and my uric acid was 4.7 which is great.

Dr. C. u r so right.  Almonds is another bad actor

magnesium is about the only thing that helps as it displaces the Ca and creates basically a "soft stone"

Is a Uric Acid test the same as Urate Level?

If so, how do you convert Urate Level to Uric Acid?

e.g. If someone had a Urate Level of 300 umol/L, what would their Uric Acid value be?

I took vitamin K2, vitamin K1, magnesium and vitamin B6 for years but these did not prevent the formation of a large staghorn kidney stone.

Uric acid forms ions and salts known as urates and acid urates such as ammonium acid urate.
Uric acid tests are common.A lot of websites use the words urate and uric acid interchangeably.
I could not find any urate testing.

Hi Bill
Will you do a story soon on the Undoctored protocol for reducing uric acid? I had my first acute gout attack a few weeks ago, interestingly my uric acid levels were not out of range. I would like to not have another attack.
