In Response To: Kidney stones Has this diet helped anyone with kidney stones? (Sarah)

While looking up pumpkins (a question on the O board) the reference below came up in which boys with pumpkin seeds in their diet had lower calcium oxalate in urine (Calcium oxalate is the main material in kidney stones.). If your mother's blood type permits pumpkin seeds, it sounds like a gentle way to reduce her risks.

Am J Clin Nutr 1987 Jan;45(1):115-121

The effect of pumpkin seeds on oxalcrystalluria and urinary compositions of children in hyperendemic area.
