I actually vaguely inquired about this issue here on these boards about a year ago, but the literature that was recommended to me was WAY over my head. "-) I have been doing a ton of research on the great benefits of C, and just recently purchased one of Dr. Levy's books. (Now if my 1 year old will allow me the time to read it, that would be nice!)
Could someone please explain to me (in really simple terms....) if this is a true cause for concern?
The mom that experienced this said that it is a very known problem, and gave me some sites that caution on vitamin C use.
The following site mentions Vitamin C as a supplement to avoid if you have an oxalate issue.
And this site was given to me as well:

Here is a quote from the above site:
(I have been taking way more than 4 g per day for about 7 months now....should I be worried?)Evaluate vitamin C intake. Vitamin C can break down to form oxalates. However, in adults, the amount of oxalate formed did not increase until the amount exceeded 4 g of vitamin C per day (27).
Apparently there is even a Yahoo Group for people with this problem. So, how do you know if you are at risk for developing this problem via vitamin C consumption?
Thank you in advance,
