Summary of "Low Sodium Diet Decreases Stone Formation in Genetic Hypercalciuric Stone-Forming Rats."

Urine (u) calcium (Ca) excretion is directly dependent on dietary sodium (Na) intake leading to the recommendation for Na restriction in hypercalciuric kidney stone formers. However, there is no direct evidence that limiting Na intake will reduce recurrent stone formation.
