High urine levels of oxalate
Q I recently had a 24 hour urine test. It has shown high calcium, oxalate, ph and something else. At the time of the test I was ingesting 4000mg to 6000 mg vitamin c as well as eating sugary and chocolate food stuffs (since stopped that)
My doc recommended cutting out oxalate foods...which is just about everything I eat. I am following a mainly veggie and fruit diet with minimal protein and dairy. Not quite ready to relinquish them.
I am supposed to retest in 5 weeks.
I think the vitamin c threw the test off.
I am just wondering what your thoughts are?
A That is a lot of vitamin C to be ingesting and depending on the form could create several problems. Sounds like you corrected the obvious issues by cutting out all that vitamin C and the sugary chocolate foods. I think I would agree with you that that was the source, and your next tests will show if you’re correct. If they read high at that time then altering your diet or conducting different tests will help determine what’s up.
