Monitoring sodium intake is cumbersome and involves 24-hour collection of urine. We hypothesize that a spot urine test can accurately predict 24-hour urine sodium excretion in an Asian population. Design: This is a prospective, observational study. We used stored urine specimens (n = 333) from the Asian Kidney Disease Study and Singapore Kidney Function Study Phase I. We measured spot urine tests and correlated these variables to the previously measured 24-hour urine sodium measurements. Results: Age, gender, ethnicity, diastolic blood pressure, height, weight, body mass index, serum creatinine, spot urine sodium, spot urine chloride, and spot urine osmolality were associated with 24-hour urine sodium excretion. The final model for predicting 24-hour urine sodium less than 100 mmol included age, gender, ethnicity, weight, and spot urine sodium. Conclusion: Spot urine sodium can help monitor a patient's sodium intake when used in the derived 5-variable equation. © 2013 National Kidney Foundation, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Renal Nutrition||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/105386||ISSN:||10512276||DOI:||10.1053/j.jrn.2012.12.004|
