Objective: This study aimed to uncover the effect of voided urinary volume on small intestine permeability ratios in healthy children.
Methods: We assessed small intestine permeability in 155 apparently healthy children, aged 3-5 years old, without any visible symptoms of disease, in a rural, malaria-endemic setting in Nigeria, using a multi-sugar test solution, comprising lactulose, sucrose, mannitol, and rhamnose. Children were categorized into low urinary volume (LV) and high urinary volume (HV), based on the volume of urine voided per kg body weight per hour. Read More
