Evaluation of Equations for Predicting 24-Hour Urinary Sodium Excretion from Casual Urine Samples in Asian Adults.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The collection of 24-h urine samples for the estimation of sodium intake is burdensome, and the utility of spot urine samples in Southeast Asian populations is unclear. OBJECTIVE We aimed to assess the validity of prediction equations with the use of spot urine concentrations. METHODS A sample of 144 Singapore residents of Chinese, Malay, and… (More)
