Abstract

We evaluated the self-chosen customary diet of a group of 88 patients (50 males, age 42.9±11.8 (±SD) years; 38 females, age 44.0±14.7 years) affected by calcium nephrolithiasis (1) (Table 1). Sixty-four patients had recurrent, and 45 patients had bilateral nephrolithiasis. Mean body weights for the male (73.4±8.8 kg) and the female (65.0±12.2 kg) groups were 13% and 18%, respectively, above their ideal body weight.
