Should A Patient with Kidney Stone Eat EggsKidney stones are a common problem of the urinary tract. Almost all kidney stone patients will benefit from simple dietary changes. We often eat eggs in the daily, for they provide the protein we need. Can we still eat them when we have kidney stones?

What causes kidney stone?

Kidney stones, like small rocks that form in the kidney, can be of different types(uric acid stones, calcium oxalate stones, cystine stones, and struvite stones). Most kidney stones are calcium type. This happens when calcium combines with oxalates to form stones. Uric acid stones develop when there is a high level of uric acid. Struvite stones may be because of an infection in the urinary system. Cystine stones are rare and usually hereditary.

Should a patient with kidney stone eat eggs?

As we all know, eggs is high in protein. 1 medium egg contains about 1 oz. While it is recommended to eat 5-6 oz of protein intake among adults. In addition, eggs is rich in calcium.
