Eating purine rich food (animal protein) can result in calcium urate stones (or uric acid stones).
Hypercalciuria (excess calcium in the urine) is thought to be partially mediated through the insulin/ glucagon pathways, which are required to metabolize carbohydrates and can result in hypersaturation of urinary calcium with a concomitant increase in calcium-oxalate stone formation (as well as calcium urate and calcium phosphate).
During this 10-year period, we have had zero incidences of calcium oxalate or calcium urate stones.
