Treatment will depend on the type, symptoms and severity of hyperoxaluria and how well you respond to treatment.
To reduce the amount of calcium oxalate crystal formation in your kidneys, your Mayo Clinic medical team may recommend one or more of these treatments:
Kidney stones are common in people with hyperoxaluria, but they don't always need to be treated. If large kidney stones are causing pain or blocking urine flow, you may need to have them removed or broken up so they can pass in the urine. Mayo Clinic is experienced in kidney stone treatment and removal and offers several minimally invasive procedures.
Depending on the severity of your hyperoxaluria, you may eventually lose kidney function. Kidney dialysis may help temporarily, but it doesn't keep up with the amount of oxalate produced. A kidney transplant or kidney and liver transplant can cure certain inherited types of hyperoxaluria (primary hyperoxaluria). Mayo Clinic provides outstanding transplant teams, led by highly skilled surgeons and medical transplant teams experienced in the care of patients with primary hyperoxaluria.
