Furthermore, data on urinary excretion of sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium and calcium of different age and sex classes derived from > 1,500 urine samples in about 500 children and adolescents were presented and refered to anthropetric parameters. Developmental (tempo-conditional) mean values of calciuria referred to age at peak height velocity of each subject showed a remarkable transient decrease both in boys and girls. Finally, preliminary data of calciuria in the context of other parameters were given.
