Background & aim: To reduce urolithiasis and its socioeconomic burden for people at risk, adopting preventive strategies aimed at modifying lifestyle factors may be effective. Therefore, the present study aimed to determine the status of health-promoting lifestyle in patients with urolithiasis and its relationship with some socio-demographic factors.
Methods: This cross-sectional study is descriptive-analytical in which 300 patients with urolithiasis referred to Rasht medical centers were studied as sample. Data were collected using a socio-demographic and health-promoting lifestyle questionnaire. To interpret the data, SPSS software and descriptive statistical methods, independent t-test, one-way analysis of variance, Spearman, and multiple linear regressions were used.
Results: Mean and standard deviation of overall health-promoting lifestyle score was 2.57±0.47, which indicates a downward average lifestyle status. The highest score was related to the dimension of responsibility towards health (2.92±0.47) and the lowest score was related to interpersonal relationships (2.03±0.64). Multiple linear regression model showed that the variables of family history of kidney stones (p=0.019, β=-1.38) and income (p=0.019, β=0.176) are predictors of health promoting lifestyle (R2=0.21).
Conclusion: Considering that the health-promoting lifestyle score and its dimensions were close to the average score and low in the patients participating in the study, it is better to consider the health-promoting lifestyle as a factor in educating patients with urolithiasis. Also, since the family history of the disease and the amount of income were predictive factors in the lifestyle of these patients, it seems that by increasing awareness about kidney stones and its causative factors and financial support of these patients, their lifestyle can be improved.
