BACKGROUND Urinary creatinine reference values that take anthropometric data into account, which is mandatory during growth, are not available for healthy white children. OBJECTIVE We sought to establish anthropometry-based reference values for 24-h urinary creatinine excretion in healthy white children aged 3-18 y. DESIGN Anthropometric variables and(More)
Anterior uveitis (AU) is an autoimmune disease frequently associated with HLA-B27 antigen. Because of the immune regulatory properties of soluble human leukocyte antigen (sHLA) molecules, we quantified sHLA class I (sHLA-I) and sHLA-DR plasma levels in HLA-typed AU patients (n = 60). Randomly selected healthy individuals (n = 128) and HLA-B27(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of daily protein intake on urinary creatinine (CR) excretion in healthy children. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, 24-hour urinary CR excretion rates were measured in 350 children aged 4 to 13 years. Body composition was assessed according to anthropometric measurements, and intake of protein(More)
Observational studies primarily based on diet questionnaires or food records have reported that vegetarians can have a very low I intake. However, analytically ascertained data on the possible degree of I deficiency with this form of diet is lacking. Six healthy adult volunteers participated in the present controlled experimental diet study carried out in(More)
BACKGROUND Currently, the measurement of urinary iodine concentration (UIC, μg/L) is the recommended parameter to assess iodine status, however, the dependency of UIC on urine volume may limit its use as an accurate parameter for monitoring iodine status in populations. Therefore, our objective was to compare two approaches for the assessment of urinary(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to check whether leptin is reliably measurable in urine samples of children, adolescents, and adults and to examine whether capillary leptin measurements can be utilized as an alternative tool to assess the leptin status. METHODS Two studies were performed. In both studies, leptin was quantified by an ultrasensitive(More)
