Calcium oxalate stones are triggered by too much oxalate in the urine. Oxalate is considered an unusable end product of mammalian metabolism and urinary oxalate is derived from endogenous metabolic sources, primarily produced by the liver. The basic aim of the study is to analyze the use of probiotics supplements for the management of calcium oxalate kidney Stone. This cross-sectional study was conducted at Bahawal Victoria Hospital, Bahawalpur during Jnauary 2019 to August 2019. This was basically a preliminary study which was conducted for the awareness of those patients who are suffering from kidney stones. Not all of the research is in support of the benefit provided by these supplements, and it is important to be aware of the associated risks and benefits. In nephrology, these supplements show potential benefits in treating kidney stones, uremia, and urinary tract infections. It is concluded that some evidence has supported the use of prebiotics, probiotics, or synbiotics, especially for the treatment of diarrhea, their use in other disease states is controversial. Special caution needs to be exercised when using these supplements in the immunocompromised and the acutely ill, as serious and potentially fatal complications have recently been reported.
