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)

1Na excretion corrected for PABA = excretion in mg/day + (0.82*(93-PABA recov)) [20].

2K excretion corrected for PABA = excretion in mg/day + (0.60*(93-PABA recov)) [20].
