Can you develop a nephrocalcinosis by spending a month drinking 4 liters of milk a day during the month of October? In March, I had an ultrasound that the kidneys were perfectly fine, but I read that micronephrocalcinosis can not be visualized on ultrasound and I am worried if chronic kidney failure develops. Has nephrocalcinosis that can not be detected in ultrasound cause chronic renal failure?

I am not aware of any risk for nephrocalcinosis that includes drinking an excessive amount of milk. Nephrocalcinosis is not a common cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD). I am not aware of any studies that have carefully searched for nephrocalcinosis as a cause of CKD.
