Some common reasons of kidney stone in PKD
Patients with acid constitution have higher risk of this condition. When PH of their urine decrease below 5.5, solubility of some substances, such as calcium phosphate and sodium urate, will decrease.

Low calcium level
Oxalic acid is an important constituent of kidney stone. Normally, calcium in intestinal tract can combine with oxalic acid so as to prevent absorption of it. However, if there is a shortage of calcium, absorption of oxalic acid will increase.
