Time required for urinary nitrogen (N) excretion to stabilize after changing from an adequate to a deficient protein intake in young men. Horizontal solid and broken lines are mean Ϯ1 standard deviation for N excretion at the end of the measurement period. (Data from Scrimshaw NS, Hussein MA, Murray E et al. Protein requirements of man: variations in obligatory urinary and fecal nitrogen losses in young men. ) placement of healthy subjects on a diet containing a minimal amount of protein. 7, urinary N excretion drops dramatically in response to the proteindeficient diet over the first 3 days and stabilizes at a new lower level of N excretion by day 8 (40).

Thus, daily urinary output of creatinine has been used as a measure of total muscle mass in the body. Urinary creatinine excretion increases within a couple days after a creatine load has been added to the diet, and several more days are required after removal of creatine from the diet before urinary creatinine excretion returns to baseline—a finding indicating that creatine in the diet itself affects creatinine production (34). Therefore, consumption of creatine and creatinine in meat-containing foods increases urinary creatinine measurements.

Peptide hormones) have relatively high rates of synthesis and degradation as a means of regulating concentrations. Conversely, structural proteins such as collagen and myofibrillar proteins or secreted plasma proteins have relatively long lifetimes. Overall, however, a balance must exist between synthesis and breakdown of proteins. Balance in healthy adults who are neither gaining nor losing weight will be that the amount of N consumed as protein in the diet will match the amount of N lost in urine, feces, and other routes.
