This pilot study aims to develop a protocol for home video informed dietary counseling with the goal of reducing overall sodium consumption among kidney stone formers. To accomplish this the investigators will: 1)Assess which data available on video visits are most informative to convey patient sodium consumption, and 2) Administer virtual home visits with informed dietary counseling in our intervention arm and compare this to standard dietary counseling looking specifically at the outcome of 24-hour urine sodium excretion results over time. This study will benefit dramatically from the rapid growth of telehealth medical visits as a consequence of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, with the ultimate goal to improve and adapt patient dietary counseling for the prevention of kidney stone disease in the new and evolving era of telehealth.
Our lead scientists for Diet Habit research studies include David Bayne, MD, MPH.
