Kidney Stone Prevention Clinic

About Kidney Stone Prevention Clinic

Who will I see in the clinic?

In the clinic, patients are evaluated by the nephrologist (kidney doctor) and registered dietitian. This includes a review of medical history, physical examination, blood tests and two 24-hour urine collections. These results and the stone analysis can assist physicians to make a diagnosis and treat many factors which put patients at risk to form kidney stones. Specific suggestions for lifestyle changes, diet and medications can be made to manage and reduce the risk of stone formation.

What can I expect when I come to the clinic?

  • Find out the type of kidney stone you have
  • Give you information about how kidney stones are treated and ways you can change your diet to help your kidneys stay healthy
  • Order medications and/or treatments if needed
  • Offer help to your doctor to look after your kidneys
