Cases of kidney stones are on the rise and new research links it to obesity.
Researchers at UCLA and the RAND Corporation found that between 2007 and 2010, the number of people with kidney stones nearly doubled from the rates from 1994.
Researchers say the findings suggest it is because of the rise in obesity and diabetes in America.
The study will appear in the July edition of the journal European Urology.
