  Purpose

Randomized clinical trial comparing water therapy plus low-salt diet to water therapy alone in patients affected by idiopathic calcium nephrolithiasis.

Treatment duration: three months Primary end-point: correction of hypercalciuria Main inclusion criteria: calcium stone formers with idiopathic hypercalciuria, with at least one stone expelled and analyzed by infrared spectrophotometry; presence of hypercalciuria (>300 mg/day in males and >200 mg/day in females); 18-65 years.

Main exclusion criteria: primary hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria, enteric hyperoxaluria, bowel resection, inflammatory bowel disease, renal tubular acidosis, sarcoidosis, sponge kidney, hyperthyroidism, use of hypercalciuric drugs such as Vitamin D, acetazolamide, anti-epileptic drugs
