Stone analyses and 24-hour urine evaluations are essential in helping patients understand the causes of their #kidneystones. Yet, many in our kidney stone patient community have never undergone any screening tests.
A recent Consensus Group led by the 4th International Meeting of the Menarini Foundation on Nephrolithiasis concluded that urologists should routinely conduct urine and stone analyses. Additionally, the Group also urges urologists to adhere to urological standards when collecting test samples. By incorporating kidney stone and urine analyses in your treatment plans, you can better advise and educate your patients on appropriate lifestyle changes!
