Abstract

Calcium oxalate urolithiasis is frequently said to be a disease of overnutrition. The formation of calcium oxalate stones depends largely on urinary uric acid, calcium and oxalic acid. We have determined the frequency of hyperuricemia, hyperuricosuria, hypercalciuria and hyperoxaluria in recurrent calcium oxalate stone formers on a free diet and after 5 days on a standard diet to study the influence of nutrition on the risk factors for stone-formation.
