Treatment strategies for pediatric idiopathic hypercalciuria

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Idiopathic hypercalciuria (IH) is a common metabolic disorder in children and is associated with the development of renal calculi, nephrocalcinosis, hematuria and osteopenia. The effect of various dietary modifications and available pharmacologic therapies on reducing urinary calcium excretion and/or urinary supersaturation is discussed in this article. The importance of a multidisciplinary approach involving the patient, their families, and health-care professionals is also addressed.
