The stones were analyzed using a kit for semi-quantitative colorimetric determination of carbonate, calcium, magnesium, ammonium, oxalate
, phosphate, uric acid and cysteine; manufactured by LTA s.r.l.
Isolates were screened for oxalate
oxidase activity by streaking the isolates on solidified basal mineral medium having the composition (g[L.sup.-1):] K[H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4]-3, [Na.sub.2]HPO[.sub.4]-6, NaCl-5, N[H.sub.4]Cl-2, MgS[O.sub.4]7[H.sub.2]O-0.1, Agar-15 and 5-calcium oxalate
Soil properties which are likely to be significant in this regard are pH, sorption sites for both [Ca.sup.2+] and oxalate
, compounds which may oxidise oxalate
* Medications: Pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil[R], Motrin[R]) and naproxen (Aleve); alpha-blockers, such as tamsulosin (Flomax[R]), to relax the ureter and help a stone pass; thiazide diuretics--chlorothiazide (Diuril[R]) and hydrochlorothiazide (Microzide[R]) are examples--or potassium citrate to prevent recurrent calcium oxalate
The modified solvothermal method using oxalate
precursor has many advantages (it is cost effective and simple and produces pure and homogeneous nanoparticles ).
While citrus drinks may be helpful in preventing calcium oxalate
stones and uric acid stones, they might be harmful for people who form calcium phosphate stones.
I have had numerous seminars on the connection between oxalates
and kidney stones, and it is common to get feedback from the audience members that they had kidney stones shortly after starting either a diet including a spinach green smoothie or a large spinach salad on a regular basis.
The gluten flour would contribute 26-31 mg of oxalate
to a 4-ounce serving of seitan.
On the other hand, it contains some antinutritional factors such as oxalates
and phytates which can limit the utilization of taro nutrients for human consumption and animal feed.
Though hot tea also contains oxalate
, it's hard to drink enough to cause kidney stones, Milner said.
The effects of oxalates
produced by Salsola tragus on the phosphorus nutrition of Stipa pulchra.
Neither GMS nor Congo red stained talc, mixed silicates, or oxalates
. Following staining with GMS or Congo red, bright birefringence under polarized light was retained for MCC, talc, and mixed silicates; however, birefringence was lost for oxalates
following application of the GMS but not the Congo red stain.
