Keto and kidney stones


Keto diets are known to increase the likelihood of kidney stones. There’s a few studies that point to it and a number of low-fi solutions.

Has any of you brave knights of the keto thought about it? Is any of you doing anything about it?

“We can confidently say this is a safe and powerful way to prevent kidney stones, and it should become part of standard therapy in all ketogenic dieters, not just those who already show elevated urine calcium levels,” Dr. Kossoff said."


Here is a better source. They both describe the use of daily Potassium Citrate to decalcify urine, hence reducing kidney stone occurence.

The daily dose used was 2 mEq/kg, which as far as I can work out is 0.08g / kg. Please somebody check that though.
