Abstract

Thiazides are commonly used for the treatment of nephrolithiasis because of their ability to lower urinary calcium excretion. Recent metabolic studies and exciting therapeutic approaches with potassium citrate have shown its effectiveness in restoring a normal urinary citrate excretion, reducing the urinary saturation of calcium oxalate, and increasing inhibitor activity.
