Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the specific reference values for urinary calcium/creatinine (UCA/Cr) (mg/mg) in healthy breast-fed newborns, and to evaluate the relationship between UCa/Cr, urinary sodium/creatinine (UNa/Cr), urinary potassium/creatinine (UK/Cr) and UNa/UK ratios in the same group.
