    How to use "Nephrolithiasis" in context?

    Nephrolithiasis refers to the formation of kidney stones. This disease can occur in any stage of life but is most common in adults over the age of 50. The majority of kidney stones are made of calcium, but other minerals, such as oxalate, can also form stones. The risk of developing nephrolithiasis is increased if there is a family history of the disease, if you are obese, if you have a strong bladder or if you have a chronic disease. If you are diagnosed with nephrolithiasis, you will likely undergo surgery to remove the stones.
