Urinary Stone in Outdoor and Indoor Workers Patients with Family History

Year 2021, Volume 16, Issue , 191 - 194, 31.12.2021


A biochemical study of 365 patients with urinary stones disease according to occupation and family history, and the occupation divided to tow subgroups (outdoor workers (n=183) and indoor workers (n=182)) and evaluated laboratory test was done for each patients included phosphorus, calcium, uric acid, urea and creatinine in serum of patients and control group. The results showed a higher significant difference serum phosphorus, uric acid, urea and creatinine in patients outdoor workers compared with the patients’ indoor workers and control group at (P=0.001), and the higher significant difference more obvious in patients with family history, as a higher significant difference serum calcium in patients with family history outdoor workers compared with the patients’ indoor workers and control group at (P≤0.05). Finally, this study proved the strong relationship between occupation and urinary stones formation, the epidemiology of stones increases according to the type of occupation. In addition, the study proved that patients’ outdoor workers have incidence more than patients’ indoor workers, and increase with family history.
