Hello to all and question on Calcium Oxalate Crystals & Uric Acid Crystals

Recommended Posts

Hello to all.  I havebeen doing Carivore for about 6 months. Everything hasbeen going good.  I just had a urine test done and they found I have Calcium Oxalate Crystals & Uric Acid Crystals at a moderate level.  These lead to Kidney Stones and Gout.  Tinking I am not drinking enough water.  I am on Blood Pressure meds but don't know if they are causing anything.

Welcome aboard @Coach 🙂

So the good thing is that these calcium oxylate crystals and these uric acid crystals are indeed being excreted through the urine. This is much better than having them accumulate in the body. Since you haven't been eating oxylates for at least 6 months, you are actually dumping what you already had in you. Calcium oxylate crystals often accumulate in the kidney, forming a stone, which is very uncomfortable to pass. 

Uric acid increases with a high protein diet, which a carnivore diet is. I personally wouldn't worry about this since it's expected. You actually dispose of about two-thirds of uric acid through the kidneys and then the rest goes out through the gastrointestinal tract.
