Metabolism and Vitamin A

Abstract

The following determinations were made on urines of rats receiving a control diet and a diet lacking vitamin A: volume, specific gravity, acidity, ammonia, urea, total N, uric acid, creatin, creatinine, total solids, albumin and sugar. The volume, specific gravity, total solids, acidity and ammonia were greater on the control diet. The animals on the deficient diet excreted a much larger percentage of their nitrogen in the form of urea than the animals on the complete ration. Uric acid, creatine and creatinine did not vary. Sugar was not found. Albumin was found in both cases, and appears to be a normal constituent of the urine of the rat.
