Okay all for fear of sounding redundant....Ciliac can cause kidney stones yes? So am I over reacting in asking my doc to do a renal ultrasound, or should I just do as she says and stay on the GFD and suck up with the pain and deal with it...see if the diet helps? How long do I wait...How long do I sit in pain to see if the diet alone will make all things great? Does anyone else on here have ciliac and kidney stones, or kidney issues? Ive never had any existing issues with my kidneys until now and am very nervous just letting the issue sit and stew...especially given the pain Im in from it. Maybe Im just a hypocondriac... :( I don't want to keep mentioning it, but maybe someone with the same experience can shed some light on this.

Interesting. I passed a kidney stone and became sick afterwards...almost a year later I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant. Do I think Celiac causes kidney stones...I don't think so. I know dehydration causes kidney stones. My doctor suggested that the stress of passing the kidney stone may has caused the onset of the gluten-intolerance. I sure hope you feel better soon! Are you drinking lots of water?

Yes I always drink tons of water... and could urinate all day long, I sometimes equate myself with a perculating coffee machine! LOL Sorry too much information.
I was told that celiac can cause kidney stones...dunno...my doc couldn't give me a difinitive answer, but did cite the "significant calcium crystals" in my urine as the result of celiac.

I have had issues with kidney stones for ovr 20 years. Have 2 lodged in my kidneys as I type. The thing here besides hydration is that you could also being having irritants that are causing the kidneys issues, like chlorination in the water. This will aggrivate my kidneys, make me sick,lots of pain in the kidney area. I also stay away from caffeine as this can cause issues, pain and dehydration. Because I have lodged stones that I don't want to grow if I can hlp it I also avoid nuts and spinach along with black tea.

If you are passing a stone, drink tons of water. When I start feeling the pain in my kidneys I will go to a liquid diet for usually 3 days til symptoms pass, no alcohol. If you have never passed a stone before don't worry.....it is pinful but unless it blocks something or lodges some place else you should be fine. I have had many a ultra sound and they ahve never caught my traveling stones.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Celiac is associated with kidney stones. My limited knowledge tells me that in the gut calcium binds with the excess fats (not absorbed due to untreated celiac) and leaves an excess amount of oxalate molecules. Those molecules travel to the kidneys and bind with the calcium there to be filtered out and expelled through the urine. (Missing some specifics and a few steps here...) This process is not as efficient as the gut is which makes it prone to complications including stones. Of course, dehydration exacerbates this issue and celiacs tend to be dehydrated..... Here's a good article:

I had a bout of kidney stones for the first time a couple months ago. I so understand and empathize with you...the pain is terrible. I had periods where the majority of the pain would subside though... The worst was the residual bladder pain...it took 2-3 weeks to resolve! Drove me crazy!! I hope you get feeling better soon!
