What about for kidney stones?

Dr. Amy Nett:  I haven’t seen any therapeutic protocols for kidney stones once they are already there. Again, if somebody has recurrent kidney stones, you need to look at what type of stones they are. If we have patients with kidney stones, I do generally ask that they try to collect those stones. Then you can send them to LabCorp or Quest for evaluation to see if they are oxalate stones, because if it’s an oxalate stone, you’re probably going to think about some dietary approaches and similarly. Find out what type of stone it is, and then that might help you in terms of treatment, but once a kidney stone is already lodged, I don’t have any protocols, unfortunately. Yeah, because those are painful.
