While at a medical conference in Tampa, Florida, I started thinking about uric acid.  This lead to remembering the story of a patient who was passing a kidney stone . . .  watch to find out what she said.

Kidney stones are really just gout’s wicked step-child and both are usually found in the insulin resistant patient.  Learn why as we spend a short 10 minutes talking about how both types of kidney stones are formed and why.   Uric acid stones & calcium oxalate stones are siblings with different mechanisms of formation but, oh, how they love hanging out in your kidney.
