kidney stone formation

14 Oct

Or, as we call it to sound doctor-y, nephrolithiasis.

One potential risk factor is a rise in oxalate, a metabolic endproduct without physiological function.  Dietary sources of oxalate include the following: spinach; rhubarb; soy products; black tea; peanuts; and chocolate.  I’m screwed.

    It could be worse. You could be a big drinker of beer, particularly cask & bottle conditioned beer; a big lover of perfectly cooked rare beef; an eater of oysters; an aficionado of odd organ meats like sweetbreads and tongue; and learn that you had a predilection for gout.

    Not that I have any personal experience along those lines, or anything.
