This website was written and designed by a group of interested health care professionals and patients, all of whom felt that the current information on the web about cystinuria was limited, confusing and not particularly orientated to British patients. It has been designed to provide clear and concise information for cystinuric patients and/ or their friends and family. Our aim is threefold:
  1. To help patients develop a better understanding of cystinuria.
  2. To offer specific information about the investigation and treatment of cystinuric stones.
  3. To improve the non-surgical management of stones, and in particular to improve efforts to prevent stones through changed diet.
    Patients often have common themes to their presentation but because the disease is rare, may not meet other affected individuals, and so are unable to share their stories.

    If you feel that anything is incorrect or if there is anything you would like to see on the this website then please contact us and let us know what you think via the

    The website has been written and designed by healthcare professionals from
    Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust with significant contributions from several patients who wish to remain anonymous.
