Author information

  • 1Department of Urology, Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

What could be the mechanisms underlying the relation between fructose intake and stone risk? And how should we incorporate this finding into the dietary advice that we give to our patients to prevent kidney stone formation?
