Gastric bypass surgery may increase the risk of calcium oxalate kidney stones and having a bacterium in our intestines that degrade oxalate may reduce the risk of forming kidney stones. For this study, adult Volunteers ages 18-75 are needed to examine whether or not individuals with a history of bariatric surgery can be successfully colonized with Oxalobacter formigenes, a normal gut oxalate degrading bacterium, and if colonization results in a decrease in urinary oxalate excretion. This study involves consuming prepared meals of your choice over 2 days twice, a one-hour long visit to the Clinical Research Enterprise (CRE) and providing stool and urine samples. Compensation up to $420. For more information email kidneystoneresearch@uabmc.edu.
