Dietary Recommendations for Bariatric Patients to Prevent Kidney Stone Formation. Calcium absorption predominantly occurs in the duodenum and proximal jejunum and is dependent on vitamin D levels.
Due to fat malabsorption, all fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) are at risk of deficiency among bariatric patients. Some investigators pointed out a deficient calcium intake and vitamin D deficiency after RYGB . Schafer et al.  demonstrated that even patients with acceptable levels of vitamin D (≥ 30 ng/mL) and maintained under an adequate calcium intake (> 1200 mg/day) had a marked decrease in intestinal calcium absorption from 33% preoperatively to 7% after 6 months of RYGB. Risk of Kidney Stones: Influence of Dietary Factors, Dietary Patterns, and Vegetarian–Vegan Diets.
Introduction Nephrolithiasis is known to be a medical condition characterized by high prevalence all over the world [1,2,3]. Water for preventing urinary stones - Bao, Y - 2020. Which Diet for Calcium Stone Patients: A Real-World Approach to Preventive Care. 1.
Background Kidney stone disease is quite prevalent in western countries: in the United States, its prevalence in a representative sample of the general population reaches 9%  and similar figures have been reported in European populations . It shows also a high recurrence rate, namely 30% to 50% at 5-years [3,4]. Therefore, primary and secondary prevention of urinary tract stone disease is an important medical task. A history of kidney stones is also associated with a higher prevalence of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular damage or events when compared with non–stone formers [5,6,7,8]. The association between kidney stones and metabolic syndrome and/or cardiovascular disease should prompt physicians to consider the assessment of the cardiovascular risk factors in any adult with kidney stones. Dietary and lifestyle changes are a major strategy for the prevention of kidney stone recurrences.
Table 1. Unfortunately, this rarely occurs in the daily clinical practice. 2. Renal and ureteric stones: assessment and management. This guideline covers assessing and managing renal and ureteric stones.
It aims to improve the detection, clearance and prevention of stones, so reducing pain and anxiety, and improving quality of life. It does not cover the infected obstructed kidney, which needs urgent drainage. Medical therapy for nephrolithiasis: State of the art. P.M.

Updates in the Metabolic Management of Calcium Stones. Vitamin D, Hypercalciuria and Kidney Stones. Alexander Randall described, in 1936, that calcium phosphate deposits at the tip of renal papillae, the Randall’s plaques, were at the origin of kidney stones in around 20% of kidneys .
Several authors found a similar occurrence of calcium phosphate deposits in Caucasians from various countries [72,73]. These plaques form in the interstitial tissue, spread and break the urothelium at later stages, promoting heterogeneous nucleation of calcium oxalate crystals and calcium oxalate stone formation.

Medical and alternative therapies in urinary tract stone disease. Nephrolithiasis is a widespread medical problem, with an increased incidence in the last 20 years[1-4].
Its prevalence is expected to rise in the upcoming decades, as has been the case for obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome[2,3]. Another problem related to nephrolithiasis is recurrence. Update on Nephrolithiasis: Core Curriculum 2016. There are 2 main sources of urinary oxalate in humans: endogenous oxalate production and exogenous oxalate absorption. The kidney is responsible for oxalate excretion. Oxalate enters the proximal tubule through filtration and secretion. Hyperoxaluria is present in 10% to 50% of calcium stone formers and defined as urinary oxalate excretion > 40 mg/d. Elevated urinary oxalate excretion increases supersaturation, risk for crystal formation, and tubular damage.
Primary hyperoxalurias are autosomal recessive disorders that lead to oxalate overproduction in the liver secondary to defects in glyoxylate metabolism. In addition to endogenous oxalate production, dietary oxalate is absorbed by passive and paracellular transport across the tight junctions of the intestine, mainly in the colon.
