Abstract : The relationship between urinary creatinine excretion and fat-free mass was studied in 70 male (39 to 247 days old) and 20 female (45 to 108 days old) albino rats. Fat-free mass, water, muscle protein, non-muscle protein and mineral were highly correlated with urinary creatinine excretion. Thus, prediction equations were derived which permitted accurate estimates of the various components of the fat-free mass to be made on the basis of creatinine excretion. (Author)
