Impact of Nutritional Factors on Incident Kidney Stone Formation: A Report From the WHI OS

“This study adds to the growing evidence underscoring the importance of maintaining adequate fluid and dietary calcium intake. Greater dietary calcium intake significantly decreased the risk of incident kidney stones. In contrast, excess sodium intake increased the risk of incident nephrolithiasis (kidney stones), especially in women with the highest intake. Animal protein intake was not independently associated with nephrolithiasis.”
