Kidney stones may raise risk of heart disease in women
Kidney stones may raise risk of heart disease in women (August 6, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Italy - Kidney stones raise risk of heart disease in women, according to a report published in JAMA. Researchers reviewed three studies involving over 45,000 men and nearly 200,000 women. Participants were all free of heart disease at the outset of the study and were followed for as many 24 years in the men, and 18 years in the women. Results showed that women who had a history of kidney stones had a statistically significant increased risk of heart disease, as well as fatal and non-fatal heart attack. There was no such association for the men.
