Abstract

It is well known that soft drinking water has an influence on urolithiasis and areas with soft drinking water are found where there is a high rate of stone disease. The present study was carried out in an area with extremely soft drinking water (German grade hardness less than 1). The population investigated included 21 stone formers (12 males and 9 females) and 6 male volunteers from the medical staff. Twenty-four-h urine samples were collected and analyzed for Na, K, Ca, Mg, Cl, and phosphate.
