Diabetic, diagnosed osteoporosis. SGPT level high. Itchy skin and pale stool. Any serious health problem?

I am 64 years old, 5 4.5 tall and weigh 70 Kg. I had my kidney operation in 1999 and in 2000. My doctor said I am a stone former and should not take food and medicines with high calcium or vitamin C , and must drink plenty of water to maintain a healthy kidney. I am also diabetic and been diagnosed recently with osteoporosis . Laboratory tests results also show that my SGPT had doubled from 25+ to 45+. I am experiencing itching on any part of my skin. I also notice my stool looks pale. Is this a serious health problem? Thank you.

Hello Flora.
Welcome here on hcm.
Actually high dietery calcium prevents kidney stone formation so your doctor is wrong here.
Secondaly a need and risk has to be balanced for supplimenting calcium.
Yes Vit C increases risk of kidney stone formation but again its need and risk has to be balanced.
NAny one sided decision will cause other proble.
Cance risk increase with the ageing and for that reason people will not leave living on planet.
