Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX
Stones containing calcium constitute 90 percent and non-calcium stones only about 10%.
This may be calcium oxalate, phosphate, mixed and triple phosphate. Only analysis of a passed or removed stone can give a clue.
The next step would be to check your blood for calcium and uric acid levels in the blood. Depending on the results, next step is planned.
If a stone is passed in urine or removed from the body, stone analysis can be done.
Also urine can be collected for one full day in a huge container and checked for what is called 24 hour urine for calcium, oxalate and uric acid levels.
Based on all these, appropriate advice can be given.
General measures to prevent stone formation are
1.     Intake of oral fluids about 3 litres a day.
2.     Avoidance of red meat.
3.     Reduce intake of alcohol.

Please consult your doc, get all these tests done and wish you good health.
Regards

Hi
welcome back.
Your calcium levels - total and ionized, phosphorus are high.
In urine, there is evidence of infection.
The next step is to check urine culture test to detect the bacteria and serum parathyroid hormone levels to see if the parathyroid glands are more active then usual.

Wishing you good health.
