No link found between kidney stones and osteoporosis risk.

Postmenopausal women who have had kidney or bladder stones do not have a higher risk of osteoporosis, according to a study published online July 14, 2015 in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. However, the research revealed that women who previously had a bladder or kidney stone had a 15 percent higher risk of another stone in the future. Low fluid intake and eating a diet high in salt and calories increases women's risks of forming stones in their urinary tracts. Men, on the other hand, do have a higher risk of osteoporosis if they have had a kidney or bladder stone. For the study, researchers analyzed data from about 150,000 women taking part in the Women's Health Initiative study.
