Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To identify correlates of kidney stone disease in white and African American men and women in a population-based longitudinal study starting in four US communities, and to assess differences in correlates across racial groups.

METHODS: Between 1993 and 1995, 12,161 middle-aged participants of the ARIC Study provided information on history of kidney stone disease. Information on incident kidney stone-related hospitalizations was obtained from ICD codes on hospital discharge records.

RESULTS: Kidney stone disease was reported by 12.0% of men and 4.8% of women. After multivariable adjustment, prevalent kidney stone disease was significantly (p

CONCLUSION: We identified novel correlates of kidney stone disease (triglycerides, gallstone disease) and risk factor interactions by race (age, male gender, triglycerides, gallstone disease).
