These are my dad’s numbers.  Can he do anything to fix his calcified aortic valve?  I noticed that the calcification is composed of oxalate crystals.  He is now on a low oxalate diet.  Any commentary is welcome:

 PH, UA=5
 Protein, UA=   >=500 (3+) mg/dL
 PROTEIN, UA >=500 (3+) mg/dL
 NITRITE, UA Negative

Fish oil recently stopping as we research vitamin A toxicity 

Taking newly:

 Iodine Ionic Minerals brand as potassium iodide 226mcg
 Thorne Vitamin D/K2 Thorne D 1000IU  K2 200 mcg (taken irregularly) 
 Now liquid B12 B Complex
 Country Life Biotin spray 

 He is also eating 1/2 cup daily of the yogurt that we are newly making
  Planning on getting the Aire device too to get baseline

Interesting to me:
Aortic valve calcification is a condition in which calcium deposits form on the aortic valve in the heart. These deposits can cause narrowing at the opening of the aortic valve. This narrowing can become severe enough to reduce blood flow through the aortic valve — a condition called aortic valve stenosis.

Oxalates in aortic valve calcification from this article:
https://casereports.bmj.com/content/2017/bcr-2017-220368
Aortic valve leaflets and necrotic-appearing thymic lymph node tissue were submitted for histology and special stains. Cultures were negative and histology did not show evidence of infection. Tissue histology demonstrated extensive dystrophic calcifications, which were polarised to reveal abundant calcium oxalate crystals.

Quoted From E-laine:  Can he do anything to fix his calcified aortic valve? 

Realistically, in the short term, no.  
Surgical replacement of the valve.
