This is a question for the medical community.....

Hubby just had a procedure done to remove kidney stones. While filling a prescription for my husband, the pharmacist mentioned that there have been a lot of people lately having the same problem. Could there be something environmental that could be causing this? Or how can I research this to find out?

There is no direct connection between any environmental factors with the occurrence of kidney stones. This condition is common in individuals with healthy conditions such as renal tubular acidosis, Cystinuria and hyperoxaluria and hyperuricosuria. It is also a hereditary disease, which is common in individuals from families with a history of kidney stones. To learn more, visit http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/Kudiseases/pubs/stonesadults/.
