There is evidence that obese patients have an increased risk of renal stone formation, although this relationship could be less evident in some populations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of overweight and obesity on the risk of renal stone formation in a population consuming a Mediterranean diet and to better elucidate the mechanisms underlying the increased risk of urolithiasis observed in obese subjects. We performed a retrospective review of 1698 stone forming patients… 
METABOLIC SYNDROME TRAITS IN UROLITHIASIS PATIENTS
TLDR
Not all of the MetS traits found in patients diagnosed with urolithiasis in Kardinah Hospital from April to June 2018, who were screened for metabolic syndrome criteria are found, and this observational study needs further research to confirm the correlation between urology and MetS.
Association of body mass index with the outcomes of retrograde intrarenal surgery
TLDR
It is shown that RIRS is a suitable option for all urolithiasis patients, even for obese individuals, and stone-free rates, length of hospital stay, operation time and complication rates in obese patients are similar with non-obese patients.

TLDR
The relationship between obesity and the risk of kidney stone formation should be reconsidered by further studies carried out in different populations.
Urolithiasis, Independent of Uric Acid, Increased Risk of Coronary Artery and Carotid Atherosclerosis: A Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
TLDR
Urolithiasis is associated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis, especially in coronary artery and carotid atheros sclerosis, and may be another potential risk factor of atherosclerotic disease, which is independent of serum uric acid levels.
The Association of Uric Acid Calculi with Obesity, Prediabetes, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, and Hypertension
TLDR
The uric acid calculi were also seemingly associated with obesity in patients with urolithiasis undergoing surgical management, and there was a remarkable association with prediabetic and diabetic states.
The new patterns of nephrolithiasis: What has been changing in the last millennium?
TLDR
The recognition and the correction of metabolic disorders could help not only to reduce the primary disease, but also stone recurrence, especially in women and overweight patients.
Nefrolitiasis: Una revisión actualizada
TLDR
Two of the most important complications are acute renal failure and chronic kidney disease, which cause significant morbidity and mortality; making prevention through proper hydration, low sodium and reduced animal protein intake and a normal calcium level diet vital for clinical management.
Urolithiasis, IndependentofUricAcid, IncreasedRiskofCoronary Artery and Carotid Atherosclerosis: A Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
TLDR
Urolithiasis is associated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis, especially in coronary artery and carotid atheros lesions, and may be another potential risk factor of atheros sclerosis, which is independent of serum uric acid levels.

TLDR
Obesity in male should be considered as a risk factor for calcium containing stone formation in patients with calcium containing upper urinary stones.

TLDR
Certainly, the many health risks of obesity, including urolithiasis, necessitate weight loss, but recognition of the potential complications of such therapies is required to prevent induction of new and equally severe medical problems.

TLDR
The majority of urolithiasis patients in the Jordanian population were obese and overweight, forming 68.1% of the population, with a higher number of clinical visits and higherNumber of surgical procedures, where the majority of stone formers was obese.
Role of overweight and obesity on the urinary excretion of promoters and inhibitors of stone formation in stone formers
TLDR
Both in men and women there was a significant increase in the urinary excretion of two promoters of stone formation, oxalate, and uric acid but no change in urinary calcium, and a significant decrease in urine pH only in men.

Influence of body size on urinary stone composition in men and women
TLDR
Evidence is provided that overweight is associated with a high proportion of uric acid stones in patients less than 60 years of age, whereas beyond this limit, advancing age is the main risk factor.
Body fat content and distribution and urinary risk factors for nephrolithiasis.
TLDR
The association between 24-hour urine pH and SI uric acid and various measures of adiposity suggest that total body fat and trunk fat are more strongly associated with risk factors for uric Acid stone formation than are total body weight and lean body mass.
The role of overweight and obesity in calcium oxalate stone formation.
TLDR
Overweight and obese men are more prone to stone formation than overweight women, and the risk of stone formation increased significantly with increasing BMI among both men and women with urolithiasis.
Association of urinary pH with body weight in nephrolithiasis.
TLDR
The results confirm the previously proposed scheme that obesity may sometimes cause uric acid nephrolithiasis by producing excessively acid urine due to insulin resistance by concluding that urinary pH is inversely related to body weight among patients with stones.
