Abstract

During the period of Ramzan, the Moslem community observes a period of complete fast from dawn until dusk (absolutely nothing by mouth) which is called ‘Roza’. Because of the high prevalence of urolithiasis in Moslems and because of the potential risk of an increased incidence of stone production during fast, we examined the diurnal variation in urine chemistry in 11 Moslem subjects who were observing Roza.
