Book News
Rodman (medicine, Cornell University) explains everything general readers need to know about kidney stones in plain language, covering risk factors, dietary and lifestyle choices, and medical treatments. Because the patients who are most likely to stick to dietary and lifestyle changes are those who understand how and why kidney stones form in the first place, he outlines basics of the urinary system and the function of the kidneys, and describes the four major types of kidney stones and why they form. He then details lifestyle plans and dietary modifications for combating kidney stones, with notes on hazards found in health food stores, special occasions, and ethnic cuisines. This revised edition is updated to reflect changes in treatment over the past 11 years, with expanded material on surgical techniques. Food tables, food diaries, and a glossary are included.
