Low Oxalate Diet Recipe -Free of charge!

Oxalate is a chemical found in plant foods.The most common type of kidney stones are the kinds that are made up of crystals that contain calcium and oxalate. People who have had kidney stones are at a higher risk of forming kidney stones again. Sometimes a Dr. may recommend that you limit oxalate if you get this type of kidney stone.
