Why Oxalate Urine Test?                      


Oxalic acid is an organic compound found in many plants, fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. It is usually bound to minerals to form “oxalate”. Oxalic acid is a dicarboxylic acid, that acts as a reducing agent.

Oxalic acid is chemically known as caustic. Oxalate is known to cause mitochondrial dysfunction. When accidentally comes in contact can cause a burning sensation, ulcers etc. Hence, excess exposure to oxalic acid can cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, convulsions, coma and also death, this is known as – Oxalic acid poisoning. Calculus (in the plural is called calculi), is a stone (consisting of minerals) that is formed in any duct of the body or an organ etc. formation of calculi is known as lithiasis. It can be urinary calculi (stones in the urinary system), kidney stones (renal calculi or nephrolithiasis), or bladder stones (vesical calculi or cystoliths). Different types of Calculi are calcium oxalate stones, struvite stones (magnesium ammonium phosphate), uric acid stones, cysteine stones etc. two forms of calcium oxalate stones are – calcium oxalate monohydrate and calcium oxalate dihydrate.

Microscopy – crystals of calcium oxalate monohydrate crystals may be present in the form of an arborescent, doughnut, dumbbell, needles, platy, rosette, round edges, compact aggregates etc. The cause of stones may be due to hypercalcemia, increased intake of oxalate-rich food, decreased intake of water, decrease in the frequency of urination etc. clinical manifestations are pain, fatigue, cramps dizziness, abdominal pain, reduced urine output, dark urine, hematuria etc. 24 hours calcium oxalate urine test is to see if high levels of oxalate are present in the patient’s urine sample specimen. Additional tests – imaging studies like X-ray studies, CT Scan, MRI, ultrasound etc. Other tests include vitamin-c test or ascorbic acid estimation etc.
