I know there have been a few questions about kidney stones here on the message board, but I haven't found any sources listed other than people's answers.
I just completed my Whole30 with my husband and had great success. My sister & her husband decided they were ready to get healthy and wanted to start paleo (YAY!!) after hearing all of the benefits that our family and others have experienced from eating this way.
They started with the Whole30 and ~1 week in my sister gets kidney stones. She goes to the doctor and they tell her it's from a "high animal protein diet". The Doc told her it can also happen from an increase oxylate in diet which can be caused by animal proteins, veggies, berries, nuts and seeds. WTF.
I feel so bad for her and she's feeling quite discouraged as her body appears to be rebelling from her wanting to eat healthy.
So finally the question - do you guys have any recommendations/sources I can pass along to her to help make the transiton easier? Surely there is a way for her to make this transition without having to endure the pain of stones...
Thanks for your insight and time. :) Happy Friday!
