Abstract

The optimal time for metabolic evaluation of a stone-former following acute renal colic has not been established. Although immediate in-patient studies are convenient, the results may be biased by atypical diet, fluid intake, activity and renal function. Early post-discharge assessment may reflect only temporary patient compliance to advice on increasing fluid intake and decreasing dietary excesses and therefore may not reveal the true risk of recurrent stone formation1.
