Kidney stones are relatively common, and recent research indicates their incidence in the United States is rising in both men and women, particularly in women. The reason for this increase is not known, but diet and lifestyle factors are prime suspects. Kidney stone disease affects people in the prime of their lives. Stones can be debilitating and painful, and recurrent stone formation may lead to a decreased quality of life, interruptions in work and social commitments, increased health care needs, hospitalization and even kidney damage.


Join us to learn the latest in treatments and research in the prevention of kidney stones.
