Excerpt from European Association of Urology:
- Study by researchers at UCLA and the RAND Corp. discovered that Americans suffering from kidney stones doubled between 2007 and 2010.
- Dr. Charles D. Scales, Jr, MD. of UCLA reviewed responses from 12,110 individuals found that between 2007 and 2010, 8.8% of the U.S. population had a kidney stone – one out of every 11 people.
- The obesity rate in 1994 was 23%. Today more than one-third of all American adults are obese today, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“People should consider the increased risk of kidney stones as another reason to maintain a healthy lifestyle and body weight. But physicians need to rethink how to treat and, more importantly, prevent kidney stones.”
– Christopher S. Saigal, MD, of UCLA
