  • Kidney Stones and IC

    Hi - I thought I posted last night, but looks like it didn't go through.

    I was officially diagnosed with IC in November 2010. I was diagnosed with bilateral kidney obstructions on January 7th, 2011. Things I thought were IC symptoms were actually kidney stone symptoms. The stones are calcium oxalate stones and I am going to be doing a 24-hour urine collection in the next few weeks.

    My dilemma is that the foods I've been avoiding because of the IC are on the good to eat list for kidney stones (OJ, lemonade, limeade, etc.), and some of the things that are on the good list for IC (such as blueberry juice) are on the don't eat list for kidney stones.

    Does anyone else have kidney stones and IC, and how do you manage the diet aspect of things ?

    Thank you !
