ABSTRACT:
On analysis of the collected data the authors reached to the conclusion that on the basis of urinary Urea/Creatinine ratio alone, nutritional grading of children would have been impossible. Thus Urea/Creatinine ratio can be used only in conjunction with the anthropometric and clinical methods, if used alone then utility is of questionable nature.
