Table 1 Urine volumes, urinary recoveries of sugar probes, L/R ratio and 3-OMG/R ratio.

From: Does fluid loading influence measurements of intestinal permeability?

Parameter Without fluid load With fluid load Wilcoxon SR test
Urine volume, ml 300 (10–500) 800 (400–1600) 0.005
3-OMG, % 44 (29–63) 51 (40–77) 0.074
Rhamnose, % 7 (4–14) 11 (3–22) 0.169
Xylose, % 25 (16–42) 34 (16–50) 0.017
Lactulose, % 0.2 (0.1–0.3) 0.3 (0.0–0.6) 0.074
L/R ratio 0.03 (0.01–0.05) 0.03 (0.00–0.17) 0.878
3-OMG/R ratio 6.1 (3.3–9.6) 4.8 (3.0–14.5) 0.878
  1. Values are median (range). 3-OMG, 3-O-methyl-D-glucose; 3-OMG/R, 3-O-methyl-D-glucose/rhamnose; L/R, lactulose/rhamnose; SR, signed-rank.
