Calcium-creatinine ratio in a morning urine sample for the estimation of hypercalciuria associated with non-glomerular hematuria observed in children and adolescents.

Summary of "Calcium-creatinine ratio in a morning urine sample for the estimation of hypercalciuria associated with non-glomerular hematuria observed in children and adolescents."

Hypercalciuria might be revealed during the differential diagnosis of hematuria accompanying renal lithiasis (RL). In spite of this, diagnostic accuracy of calcium urinary excretion might be affected by incomplete 24-hour urine collections. In the present study, the diagnostic utility of calcium/creatinine (ICaCre) index for determining hypercalciuria associated with non-glomerular hematuria (NGH) and RL was assessed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Excretion of abnormally high level of CALCIUM in the URINE, greater than 4 mg/kg/day.

An amino acid that occurs in vertebrate tissues and in urine. In muscle tissue, creatine generally occurs as phosphocreatine. Creatine is excreted as CREATININE in the urine.

Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.

The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.

The calcium salt of oxalic acid, occurring in the urine as crystals and in certain calculi.
