Clinical Registry of Nephrolithiasis, Osteoporosis and Other Disorders of Mineral Metabolism
Patients will comprise those referred to the stone clinic of CMMCR's Mineral Metabolism Clinic at aston and Parkland Memorial Hospital. They will be women or men of any ethnicity.
Clinical Data Registry
The data from uT Southwestern's Mineral Metabolism Clinic will be used to create a comprehensive and thorough clinical registry. it is fully expected that important information of clinical and pathophysiological significance would result from the future analysis of data from this registry. Data obtained will be entered into the registry, which would be readily amenable for data retrieval and analysis (for publications).
in this proposal, the following steps will be taken:
* a comprehensive database for initial evaluation will be constructed from the data to be obtained under this protocol
* The database will be expanded for the follow-up of patients on long-term treatment
All Aston and PMH clinic patients, with the diagnosis of osteoporosis, kidney stones or other metabolic diseases will be invited to participate in this research.
