The incidence and prevalence of lithiasic
disease in developed countries has increased over the
last years. Being diet one of the risk factors for urolithiasis,
and having it evolved in conjunction with lifestyle
over the last decades, such changes could explain the
increase in lithiasis case-load.
In this article, we analyze how the exercise of the urologist
has been regarding the preventive role of diet in the
lithiasis patient, what are the scientific evidences on the
relationship of diet and lithiasis, and, on this base, what
general dietetic recommendations we can give currently
to our patients.
