Oxalates
Posted Friday, January 25, 2013 at 1:25 PM

Has anyone had trouble with the oxalates on plant based diets? I have had a long time issue with arthritis in my big toes and hypothroidism. Now I have read that too many oxalates in some people can cause this.

Haven't noticed any problems as far as arthritis (I don't have much, just a tinge in the knuckles at this point). As far as thyroid, I've been hypothyroid for years (diagnosed about 20 yrs ago but it's been longer than that for sure). I have seen things indicating that soy can interfere with meds for hypothyroid so I just avoid large chunks like tofu and soy milk (which I have found to be problematic for me. YMMV).

I have arthritis in both knees. No issues with oxalates, big issues with dairy.

What I am concerned about is that I have read that too many high oxalate foods, which is most of what I eat on this diet, can cause issues with osteoporosis, hypothyroid and arthritic flare ups. All of which I have.

then, for you, you might need to adjust how much of that you eat. Each person is going to have different needs - some folks on the kickstart are gluten intolerant, others have nut allergies, others have soy allergies, and so on. You need to do what works for your specific needs.
