Keeping a kidney-friendly diet is very important for slowing down its progression. Well then, can CKD patients with kidney stone consume bamboo shoots?

Causes of kidney stone

Kidney stones may form when the normal balance of water, salts, minerals, and other substances found in urine changes. How this balance changes determines the type of kidney stone you have. Most kidney stones are calcium-type-they form when the calcium levels in your urine change. Diet plays an pretty important role in the formation of kidney stones.

Bamboo shoots for kidney stone patients

Bamboo shoots are rich in oxalic acid, which can combine with calcium to form oxalate salts, causing a depletion of such necessary minerals in the body. Meanwhile, oxalate salts can accumulate in the kidneys over time, and in certain conditions, they can form kidney stones. Therefore, CKD patients with kidney stone are not recommended to consume bamboo shoots.

Other foods rich in oxalic acid

Except for bamboo shoots, other foods such as roasted groundnuts (131mg/100g), amaranth leaf (530mg/100g), bamboo shoots (333mg/100g), and roasted cashew nuts (263mg/100g) should also be avoided.
