229. No Stone Unturned: Kidney Stone Prevention One Bite at a Time
The prevalence of nephrolithiasis among men and women across the United States as well as the world continues to grow, with a high chance of recurrence for first-time kidney stone formers. Emerging evidence also shows an association between stones and several comorbidities, including metabolic syndrome and diabetes. The rise in kidney stone incidence brings to light the increased potential for life-threatening complications as well as financial and medical burdens on patients, providers and health care systems. In this session, speakers will review pathophysiology, types of renal calculi and risk factors associated with stone formation. Additionally, recent, innovative research surrounding management of stones will be highlighted. This session will ultimately equip attendees with an understanding of the best practices for multidisciplinary management of nephrolithiasis as well as the importance of individualized medical nutrition therapy for kidney stone prevention.
