Estrogen Therapy May Be Linked to Kidney Stones

(HealthDay News) -- Estrogen therapy may increase the risk of kidney stones in postmenopausal women, a new study suggests.

For the study, researchers examined data on postmenopausal women in the United States, gathered from two trials in the Women's Health Initiative study.

One trial included 10,739 women who had had a hysterectomy, and who received either an estrogen-only treatment or placebo, and were followed for an average of 7.1 years. The other included 16,608 women without hysterectomy who received either estrogen plus progestin therapy or placebo, and who were followed for an average of 5.6 years.

There were 335 cases of kidney stones reported among women in the treatment groups and 284 cases among those in the placebo groups, the investigators found. The annual kidney stone incidence rate per 10,000 women per year was 39 in the treatment groups and 34 in the placebo groups, according to the report in the Oct. 11 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine.
