ABSTRACT

Urinary tract calculi are a universal source of renal pathology. The present article summarizes available date from epidemiological and clinical studies to elucidate the impact of diet, fluid intake and urine volume on risk on urinary stone formation and maybe the prevention of stone recurrence. Dietary calcium lowers the risk of nephrolithiais due to a decreased absorption of dietary oxalate that is bound by intestinal calcium. A low urinary volume is an important risk factor in urinary stone formation. The objective of this study was to evaluate if the are efficiently the dietetic measurements in meta- and prophilaxia nephrolithiasis disease by decreased of calcium intake and increasing fluid intake.

Keywords: urinary calculi, dietary factors, oxlate urolithiasis, PCA (Principal Component Analysis)
