The bone mineral content of the radius was measured in 32 male renal stone formers, 18 of them presenting with idiopathic urolithiasis and 14 with primary hyperparathyroidism, a disease known to disturb bone metabolism. The idiopathic stone formers had been on regular treatment with a low calcium diet. The bone mineral content of the radius was reduced to a similar level in both groups of patients. The data suggest that idiopathic stone formers on a low calcium diet are at risk of osteopenia… CONTINUE READING
