The Association of Urine Creatinine With Kidney Stone Prevalence in US Adults: Data From NHANES 2009–2018
A moderately increased risk of kidney stone formation attributed to high levels of UCR, especially in middle-aged and older adults and the white race, is confirmed, however, causal inferences cannot be made.
Association Between Gestational Diabetes Mellitus and Future Risk of Kidney Stones
Previous GDM was positively associated with odds of kidney stones, and the association was independent of type 2 diabetes, hypertension and metabolic syndrome.
Higher Triglyceride–Glucose Index Is Associated With Increased Likelihood of Kidney Stones
Considering TyG index is a reliable indicator of insulin resistance (IR), treatment and management of IR at a younger age may improve or alleviate the occurrence and recurrence of kidney stones.
Gender Differences in Kidney Stone Disease (KSD): Findings from a Systematic Review
A systematic review of literature demonstrates a temporal change in the disease burden of KSD among men and women and the latter, especially adolescent females, are more likely to develop KSD in their lifetime compared to previous eras.
Cardiovascular risk factors, ethnicity and infection stone are independent factors associated with reduced renal function in renal stone formers
Multivariable analysis showed that the odds of having reduced renal function increased with age, ethnicity, lower educational level, history of diabetes, hypertension, gout, bilateral hydronephrosis, elevated serum uric acid level and infection stone.
Association of acidic urine pH with impaired renal function in primary gout patients: a Chinese population-based cross-sectional study
Acidic urine pH, especially urine pH < 5.0, was significantly associated with the prevalence of kidney disease, including > stage 1 CKD, nephrolithiasis, kidney cyst, and microhematuria, which supports prospective clinical investigation of urinary alkalinization in selected gout patients with acidic urine pH.
Gut microbiota and the prevalence and incidence of renal stones
In this study with repeated nephrolithiasis measurements, prevalent renal stones were associated with an altered gut microbiota composition compared to the control, and other functional pathways inferred in this study require further investigation.


Prevalence of kidney stones in the United States.
Time trends in reported prevalence of kidney stones in the United States: 1976-1994.
Prevalence of kidney stone disease history in the United States population increased between 1980 and 1994 and a history of stone disease was strongly associated with race/ethnicity and region of residence.
Relationship between C-reactive protein and kidney stone prevalence.
The association of increasing body mass index and kidney stone disease.
Kidney stones: a global picture of prevalence, incidence, and associated risk factors.
The body of evidence suggests that the incidence and prevalence of kidney stones is increasing globally, and increases are seen across sex, race, and age.
Metabolic Syndrome Prevalence by Race/Ethnicity and Sex in the United States, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988–2012
Prevalence of metabolic syndrome increased from 1988 to 2012 for every sociodemographic group; by 2012, more than a third of all US adults met the definition and criteria for metabolic syndrome agreed to jointly by several international organizations.
Menopause and Risk of Kidney Stones
Body fatness, diabetes, physical activity and risk of kidney stones: a systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies
A positive association between adiposity and diabetes and the risk of kidney stones, but no association with physical activity is suggested.
