High-dose vitamin C linked to kidney stones in men
Many experts have speculated that taking large amounts of vitamin C may contribute to the formation of oxalate-type kidney stones because of the metabolic conversion of vitamin C to oxalic acid. This article discusses a study by Swedish researchers (published by JAMA Internal Medicine in Feb. 2013) that details a connection between kidney stone formation and the use of Vitamin C supplements by some 23,000 Swedish men. The study was done over an 11-year period. The finding is that those men who took the vitamin C supplements were twice as likely to get kidney stones. On the other hand, use of a standard multivitamin did not seem to increase the risk of kidney stones.
