Introduction: Any laboratory results become medically useful only when appropriate comparative data from healthy population is available. In absence laboratory results may not provide valuable information. Age group associated urinary excretion of Glycosaminoglycans(GAGs) are one such parameter where available comparative data is not sufficient. Hence in the present study urinary GAG excretion in a healthy adolescent of 17 to 19 years age group was performed.
Aims & Objectives: To determine urinary excretion levels of GAGs among healthy adolescent of 17 to 19 years age group.
Materials and Method: Random urine samples from 118 healthy, engineer students between 17-19yrs age were estimated for excretion of GAGs by Dimethyl-methylene blue method.
Results and Conclusion: Urinary GAGs level among adolescent male was in the range of 8.4 to 12.4 mg dl and in females it was 8.2 to 12 mg dl. The results of our study, suggest 8.2 to 12.4 mg dl as normal reference range for Urinary Glycosaminoglycans excretion in healthy, adolescent 17 to 19years age group by DMMB dye method.
