Abstract

In the northeast region of Thailand, nephrolithiasis is one of the common non-communicable health problems. It is estimated that there are about 65,000 stone cases in that region of the country. In the present investigation, we studied the biochemical profiles in blood and 24-h urine samples in stone formers in this area.
