Influence of Water Quality on Urolithiasis

  • W. Vahlensieck

Abstract

In order to prevent the recurrence of urinary stone formation, there is general agreement on the value of a high fluid intake1,2. Pak et al3 have demonstrated the satisfactory response of patients treated with only an increased fluid intake and dietary modification. Hosking et al4 have shown that the “stone clinic effect” (defined as a high intake of fluid with avoidance of dietary excesses) in patients with idiopathic calcium urolithiasis and indeterminate metabolic activity brought about metabolic inactivity without further stone formation after a mean follow-up of 62,2 months in 58.3% of their patients. The patients were advised to increase their fluid intake to achieve a daily urine output of ⩾ 2500 ml. Specifically, an oral fluid intake of approximately 8 ounces (240 ml) hourly while awake was recommended, with at least half of the fluid being water.
