The excretion of sodium varies with dietary intake. There is a diurnal variation of sodium excretion with excretion being greater during daytime than during the night. Decreased levels are seen in congestive heart failure, excessive sweating, diarrhea, pyloric obstruction, malabsorption and primary aldosteronism. Increased levels may be due to increased salt intake, failure of the adrenal glands, diabetic acidosis, salt losing renal disease and water deficient dehydration.

Please submit a 10 mL aliquot of a 24-hour collection. Collect urine
without preservative. Refrigerate during and after collection. Do
not include first morning specimens; collect all subsequent voiding.
The last sample collected should be the first morning specimen voided
the following morning and the same time as the previous morning's
