Results indicated that urinary magnesium excretion was inversely correlated with age, systolic BP and triglyceride and CRP concentrations whilst being positively correlated with HDL cholesterol and urinary excretion of calcium, sodium, potassium, albumin and creatinine.
In addition, the urinary excretion of gamma-tocopherol and tocotrienol metabolites was not affected by dietary alpha-tocopherol.
It is logical that random urine samples collected later in the day would have higher values than first-void samples, because urinary excretion of albumin usually is higher during the day.
Nitrogen losses are therefore inevitable, but nutrition can play an integral role in reducing excretion as N excretion is directly related to N intake.
Several possible physiological mechanisms have been suggested; for example, LMW proteins and Cd-bound metallothionein may have similar affinity for renal tubular binding sites, and excretion of both proteins and U-Cd may be influenced by normal variation in diuresis (i.

Increases in RSNA decrease urinary sodium and water excretion by increasing renal tubular water and sodium reabsorption throughout the nephron, decrease renal blood flow (RBF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) by constricting the renal vasculature, and increase the activity of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) (3,4).
