So has anyone ever had any experience with uric acid kidney stones? My doctor doesn't seem very concerned when I tell her I pass several a month (sometimes more) and that I often have visible stone sediment in my urine that looks like piles of orange sand. I am 99% sure they are uric stones because of the color. My gastrointerologist keeps saying that kidney stones are linked to Crohns disease. Not sure what to do, all I know is that I hurt most of the time from the stones, joint pain, and various gastrointestinal issues. Not but 38...is it too early to start falling apart ??

Never heard that kidney stones are related to Crohn's, and I've passed a few myself, of the calcium oxalate kind. One of our sons has Crohn's - in fact is hospitalized for it this very week - but has never had kidney stones. He was considerably younger than you when Crohn's hit him - he's 44 now.

Have your stones been analyzed, MM? They wouldn't even treat mine until I finally "caught" one for them to analyze.
