(a) Urine volume (mL/24 h; ; CONT versus FRUCT and CONT versus FRUCTMIN; # CONT versus FRUCT and FRUCTMIN), (b) urinary sodium excretion (mEq/24 h; -7; * FRUCTMIN versus CONT and for FRUCTMIN versus FRUCT), and (c) urinary creatinine excretion evolution (mg/24 h; -7), every other week during the first 6 weeks of the dietary intervention. Results were expressed as mean standard error of the mean. CONT: control; FRUCT: 10% fructose in tap water; FRUCTMIN: 10% fructose in natural mineral-rich water.
