Özet

Objective: Spot urine calcium/creatinin ratio (UCa/Cr) is a simple, cheap and a reliable test that is commonly used to estimate calcium excretion in urine. Recent studies have shown that the UCa/Cr ratio depends on the age and the geographic area. The aim of our study is to evaluate urinal)/sodium/Creatinin (UNa/Cr), urinary potassium/Creatinin (UK/Cr) and urinary sodium/potassium (UNa/K) levels in children of age 0-16 years and to establish reference limits of hypercalciuria that can be used for UCa/Cr as a reference for healthy children in Van.
