Doctor :   ok
User :   you there?
Doctor :   major components of the most common type of kidney stone are calcium and oxalate both of which come primarily from the diet, that is, the food we eat.
User :   ok
Doctor :   relationship between dietary calcium and kidney stones is complex. It is known-and this study confirms--that increasing amounts of dietary calcium are associated with fewer kidney stones
User :   ok
User :   so how much calcium i can take
Doctor :   the increased amounts of calcium from food binds to oxalate from food in the intestine, and the complex of calcium and oxalate cannot be absorbed into the body. This reduces the amount of calcium and oxalate that needs to be eliminated from the body in the urine and prevents the formation of calcium/oxalate stones in the kidneys
