Urinary inhibitors of crystallization in hypercalciuric children with hematuria and nephrolithiasis

Urinary inhibitors are suggested to play a significant role in reducing crystallization in calcium (Ca) stone former and idiopathic hypercalciuria (IH). Urinary inhibitors such as magnesium (Mg), citrate, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) were evaluated, as well as urinary Ca and creatinine (Cr), in IH children with nephrolithiasis (LIT) or with hematuria plus… CONTINUE READING
