Hi,

Because oxalates are naturally-occurring substances found in plants and animals and while there are some foods that are higher in oxalates than others, it is very difficult to track these foods as there is not a requirement by the USDA to have the amounts listed on labels or in the USDA database.

If you are having to track these foods, you may want to see about getting a referral to a Registered Dietitian or nutritionist to see if they can guide you as to what foods to avoid or eat in limited quantities.

Is there any way to track oxalates in food? I try to avoid high oxalate food, but I'm not aware of every food. The foods that are high in oxalates can cause kidney stones in some individuals.

I'm trying to deal with diabetes, oxalates, low potassium, low thyroid, celiac, gluten issues, milk issues, and soy issues. Trying to deal with all of this is over whelming. On top of this I have a brain injury, asthma, and other problems. emoticon
