Kidney Stone Prevention Programme
A comprehensive metabolite evaluation service that uses clinical outcome based algorithms to interpret 24 hour urine results and deliver interpretative reports giving clear recommendations for treatment.
I lived in constant, excruciating pain, with at least one stone a month for the past 20 years
Since starting the Litholink program, I have had no new kidney stones. I can’t thank my doctor and Litholink enough!
Litholink is an integrated diagnostic testing and kidney stone disease management programme which has been used extensively in the USA, and is now being introduced into the UK. US urologists have reported that it can help reduce the reoccurrence of kidney stones by 80%
It offers a comprehensive metabolite evaluation service that uses clinical outcome based algorithms to interpret 24 hour urine results which deliver interpretative reports that give clear recommendations for treatment.
The logistics of sample collection are handled by our UK patient services team and samples are analysed in Litholink’s US laboratory in under 10 days.
Litholink, a LabCorp subsidiary, has developed a programmatic approach to comprehensively treat kidney stone disease. Using this approach, we are able to reduce the rate of kidney stone recurrence up to 80%.
Based around a novel, convenient, 24 hour urine collection and sample return service, we can perform a number of tests and measurements to determine exactly why you are forming kidney stones.
Once a person has a kidney stone, the risk of forming another stone is high. Physicians must determine the underlying causes of kidney stone formation in order to prevent future stones from occurring. Litholink testing will provide your physician with the highest quality results possible to help prevent kidney stones from reoccurring.
