I Keep My Tonsilloliths In a Special Box.

Nah, I'm lying.  That would be gross.

I am serious about getting some statistics down, though.  Please follow my lead.

  • Sex:  M
  • Age:  21
  • First Tonsillolith:  18
  • Tonsillolith Incidents:  ~10
  • Mouth Breather:  N
  • Dietary Abnormalities:  1 gal both skim milk and water per day.
  • Opinions:  I personally link tonsilloliths with powdered protein shakes.  I have yet to get a tonsillolith while off supplements, and tend to notice them after about two weeks of daily usage.

1st when i was 21. No long term Tonsil stone action at first.<br />
<br />
Looking back i have tried protein shakes off and on and have had tonsil stones..off and on.<br />
<br />
for the last 3 months i have been working out much more that usual and have been taking Whey Protein on the days that i work out. The days i work out and take the shake are the same days i notice a swollen feeling in my throat and usually pop out a few tonsil stones those days. If i don't take the shake and work out i'm good to go( no tonsil stones). I don't smoke, no soda, not a lot of sugar and i'm very healthy. <br />

Protein seems to be a direct trigger for tonsil stones in my case

Well, I had mine out when I was 20 - it was the best thing I ever did.

i've never had a protein shake in my life and i continue to get tonsil stones... so no.

Check this out - it might help?<br />
