Abstract

Calcium and oxalate are the main urinary risk factors for calcium stone formation. Many therapeutic measures have been tried in an attempt to reduce the concentrations of these risk factors in urine. A low calcium diet has been a popular form of therapy since many authors have described the high incidence of hypercalciuria in stone formers. Unfortunately, it is well-documented that calcium restriction induces an increase in oxalate excretion1−3.
