After 16 healthy volunteers on a standard normal diet had reached an excretory steady state, their urines were tested in successive 5-day periods for minerals (Na, K, Ca, Mg, C1, PO4, SO4) and organic acids (uric acid, citric acid, oxalic acid). The normal values constitute criteria for the determination of abnormal excretion in patients with urolithiasis; they may be regarded as universally valid. For the beginning for treatment, liminal values in the 24-hour urine are listed.
