Hyperoxaluria can be caused by a genetic disorder, eating too many oxalate-rich foods or an intestinal disease. In some people the cause of the disease is not known but may result from changes in the way kidneys handle normal amounts of oxalate. Early diagnosis and treatment are important to the long-term health of your kidneys.
