RENAL STONES-CALCIUM STONES MANAGEMENT

1. Citrate chelates calcium, thereby preventing stones.

2. Thiazide diuretics for hypercalciuria (decrease urinary calcium), decreasing dietary protein and sodium, giving potassium citrate, and treat high uric acid.

3. Do not decrease dietary calcium intake; this only increases oxaluria!
