Can supplements cause kidney stones? « : September 13, 2010, 09:11:11 AM »
My buddy just had a small kidney stone and he is only 18 years old.  He takes a truck load of supplements and thinks it is because of everything he takes - animal pack, creatine, glutamine, PH, etc.  He does these consistantly. 

Is there anything that would directly cause stones?

PH-prohormone?!  He doesn't cycle off creatine at all? I don't think there's evidence to support any of the supps listed (directly) cause kidney stones; It's safe to assume that it would put increasing pressure on the liver/kidney when all the synthetic materials pass through.  They can also be the result of a high protein diet.

Not sure on amounts of protein he takes in (probably a lot), but definitely does not cycle creatine, and hardly cycles PH.

What do you mean by hardly cycles?  He rarely does them or he's on them all the time, without a break?  Does he use support supps? If not, this will put unbelievable strain on the kidneys/liver.  I really hope man, because if not kidney stones are a walk in the park compared to the possibility of liver shutdown.
I REP BACK.
