Patients with kidney stones at higher chronic kidney disease riskNovember 8th, 2008 - 1:52 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Nov 8 (ANI): People who develop kidney stones are at a greater risk of developing chronic kidney disease, according to a new study.
It is known that kidney stones lead to CKD in patients with rare genetic diseases and in extreme cases individuals with CKD caused by kidney stones may even need dialysis or kidney transplants.
The research ream led by John Lieske, MD, and his colleagues at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, analysed the data of patients with kidney stones from Olmsted County, MN, and compared it to the group with no stones.
They found that patients with kidney stones were 60 pct more likely to develop kidney disease and 40pct more likely to develop end-stage renal disease (ESRD), the most severe form of CKD.
Lieske said that the study indicates that patients with kidney stones should be carefully evaluated for CKD and its risk factors, and they should be appropriately treated for any that are identified.
The study was presented at the American Society of Nephrology’’s 41st Annual Meeting and Scientific Exposition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. (ANI)
