Fructose intake as a risk factor for kidney stone disease
Kidney International , Volume 73 - Issue 2 p. 139- 140
Taylor and Curhan report that consumption of fructose is independently associated with an increased risk of incident kidney stones. What could be the mechanisms underlying the relation between fructose intake and stone risk? And how should we incorporate this finding into the dietary advice that we give to our patients to prevent kidney stone formation?
