Table 1 Characteristics of study participants

From: Association between 24-hour urine sodium and potassium excretion and diet quality in six-year-old children: a cross sectional study

  N=58 (52% boys)
Age, months (sd) 72 (1.0)
Height, cm (sd) 119 (4.6)
Weight, kg (sd) 23 (3.1)
Systolic blood pressure, mmHg (sd) 110 (11.1)
Diastolic blood pressure, mmHg (sd) 64 (11)
Urine volume, mL/24h (sd) 648 (284)
Na excretion  
mmol/24h (sd) 71 (23)
mmol/L (sd) 120 (44)
g/24h1 (sd) 1.64 (0.54)
g/kg/24h (sd) 0.07 (0.02)
K excretion  
mmol/24h (sd) 31 (11)
mmol/L (sd) 52 (20)
g/24h2 (sd) 1.22 (0.43)
g/kg/24h 0.05 (0.02)
Na/K excretion 1.6 (1.3)
  1. 1Na excretion corrected for PABA = excretion in mg/day + (0.82*(93-PABA recov)) [20].
  2. 2K excretion corrected for PABA = excretion in mg/day + (0.60*(93-PABA recov)) [20].
