Background: Global progress accompanied by changes in eating patterns is associated with an unprecedented health situation: obesity.

Objective: To evaluate the lithogenic parameters in patients with obesity, Tegucigalpa, Honduras, January - March 2022.

Methodology: Characterized as a simple random non-probabilistic cross-sectional descriptive study, with the participation of 79 participants with sociodemographic variability, the weights, heights and a general urinal examination was carried out to define some general alterations through its results.
