A SIMPLE METHOD FOR ESTIMATING 24 H URINARY SODIUM AND POTASSIUM EXCRETION FROM SECOND MORNING VOIDING URINE SPECIMEN IN ADULTS
1. An assessment was made of the extent sodium (Na) and potassium (K) intake can be estimated from Na, K and creatinine (Cr) content of a second morning voiding urine (SMU) specimen collected withinExpand

The effect of high-sodium and low-sodium intakes on blood pressure and other related variables in human subjects with idiopathic hypertension.
Nineteen patients with hypertension in whom all known causes of blood pressure elevation had been ruled out were classified as "salt-sensitive" or "nonsalt-sensitive" from the changes in bloodExpand

[Prediction of 24-hour urinary creatinine excretion from age, body weight and height of an individual and its application].
Equations to predict 24-hour urinary creatinine excretion (UcrV) from age, body weight (W) and body height (H) were developed based on the data for UcrV determined by collecting 24-hour urine for 3-5Expand

Average urinary excretion of sodium in 24 hours can be estimated from a spot-urine specimen.
We assessed to what extent sodium intake can be estimated from the sodium content of a spot-urine specimen (spot-UNa) collected within 4 hours after the first voiding upon awakening but beforeExpand

Usefulness of twenty-four-hour blood pressure patterns and response to short-term sodium restriction in normotensive subjects in detecting a predisposition to systemic arterial hypertension.
Twenty clinically healthy subjects were studied to identify normotensive adults with a predisposition to arterial hypertension by monitoring blood pressure (BP) and restricting dietary sodium intake.Expand
