    No doctors, urologists or specialists seem to know a connection, or why.
    Pea protein seemed to make me pee the most.
    Sometimes it felt like a Urinary Tract Infection although my tests NEVER showed one infection.

    “I think you might have high oxalates. Stop eating high Oxalate foods such as Oranges, Spinach, Carrots, Rhubarb (Who eats that nowadays!), Nuts, and chocolate.” Hang on, I had a very high oxalate diet (most days). Even my protein was pea protein and was high in oxalates.

    An oxalate is an anti-nutrient and a toxin which disrupts normal body functions on the cellular level.

    Once absorbed, the body needs to protect itself from them, either by putting them somewhere in storage or by excreting them. There is a limit to how much the body can excrete at once so if too much oxalate is absorbed at least some will be stored. If your detoxification systems aren’t working well, you might not excrete any.

    If your gut can’t break down the oxalate you store it in your kidneys (Calcium Oxalate Kidney Stones), your joints and other places. It’s not good.

    What symptoms does having oxalates bring?:

    Kidney stones
    Weakend Immune system
    Urinary pain (like a UTI but no infection found)
    Autism Spectrum Disorders
    COPD/Asthma
    Vulvodynia/genital pain
    Thyroid disease
    Cystic Fibrosis
    Fibromyalgia
    Joint Pain
    Chronic Fatigue
    Insomnia
    Hormonal Imbalances
    Chronic Candida

    Eliminate from diet:

    Oranges
    Spinach
    Chocolate
    Peanuts
    Carrots

    If only doctors and specialists knew about this too!!!

    Calcium Citrate bonds to the Oxalate and escorts it out of the body.

    Chanca Piedra may help.
    HCA may help.

    High-oxalate foods. Many plants contain oxalate, so it’s hard to avoid it entirely. But some foods have much more than others. Try to limit:

    Spinach
    Rhubarb
    Almonds and cashews
    Miso soup
    Grits
    Baked potatoes with skin
    Beets
    Cocoa powder
    Okra
    Bran cereals and shredded wheat cereals
    French fries
    Raspberries
    Stevia sweeteners
    Sweet potatoes

    If you eat or drink calcium-rich foods at the same time, they can help your body handle oxalate without turning it into a kidney stone. So pair your spinach salad with low-fat cheese. Or mix nuts or berries into yogurt. Drinking milk does not cause kidney stones.

    Salt. If you eat a lot of sodium, which is an ingredient in salt, that raises the amount of calcium in your urine. Once you finish eating, any extra oxalate “sticks” to calcium in the kidneys. That can produce stones. So limit canned foods, packaged meats, fast foods, and condiments in your diet.

    Animal protein. Limit beef, pork, eggs, cheese, and fish, because they may raise your chances of most types of kidney stones.

    Vitamin C. Too much can make your body produce oxalate. So don’t take more than 500 mg a day.

    Hm, WebMD knows about this.

    But there are reasons to eat leafy greens.

    And I've read there are reasons to eat dark chocolate, but given my problem with oxalates and oxalate storage, i'm not eating dark chocolate bars anymore.

    Biotin (aka Vitamin B7, Vitamin H and Coenzyme R): Some find Biotin to be helpful in alleviating dumping symptoms. I’m not entirely certain why this is true, but it certainly seems to help a great percentage of low oxalate dieters. It has also proven to be extremely effective at combatting yeast when taken in very high doses (e.g. 20 to 80mg per day – and no, that is not a typo; while biotin supplements are normally measured in micrograms, I did mean to type milligrams there). While I obviously can’t recommend that anyone else take high dose biotin, I can honestly testify that 60mg per day has all but rid me of yeasty stools…a wonderful event!

    Look up Methylation.

    Google: Oxalate and Biotin

    I have you on Block and Ignore Forum posts.
    I was going to change that but you have me on Block and Ignore Forum posts, also.
    So, I do not know what your profile name is.

    ANYWAY,
    Thank you for the information above because I'm a big eater of Larabars which uses dates as a main ingredient.
    I'll keep taking my calcium citrate to pull out the Oxalates.
