We measured the urinary excretion of nitrite/nitrate, stable metabolites of nitric oxide, using the brucine method in 90 healthy normal children (47 boys and 43 girls), aged from 1.0 to 17.1 years, to establish the age-related normal range in children. The urinary nitrite/nitrate excretion was highest in the youngest children and decreased in an age-dependent manner to reach constant levels at about 12 years of age in both sexes. The data may be useful in identifying sick children with abnormal… CONTINUE READING
