Meat, Poultry, Fish and Seafood

For Patients

If you suspect you have stones, visit your primary care provider or urologist.

If you've been diagnosed with stones and would like to be seen in the Metabolic Stone Clinic, please call (608) 263-4757.

Depending on your urine biochemistry, you may be asked to limit your intake of meat, poultry, fish and seafood to reduce your risk for kidney stones.
 
Too much of these foods eaten by certain individuals causes hypercalciuria, hyperuricosiuria and acid urine.
 
The amount of meat, fish or poultry that you can eat should be individually determined by your stone management team, based on your 24-hour urine and other biochemical data.
 
In general, eat small portions of meat, fish or poultry (four ounces at a time or less). Also, reduce the number of times you eat meat, fish or poultry during the week.
