Medications including fibre preparations such as psyllium and osmolar laxatives.
Lubricants containing highly osmolar glycerin have also been linked to bacterial vaginosis and changes in the vaginal flora.
Finally, we mention another example of hyponatremia, in which water intake exceeds the osmolar load in non-beer drinkers who have low intake of dietary solute ("tea and toast" syndrome, crash dieters) but excessive water intake, a phenomenon that in this age of dieting and weight consciousness can be seen with increasing frequency (9, 10).
Osmolar clearance (Cosm) was calculated by the following equations: Cosm = (urine osmolality x UFR) / serum osmolality.
Current evidence supports the use of hydration, minimising contrast media volume and the use of lower osmolar contrast media in the prevention of contrast-induced AKI (138, 139).
Currently, trials are underway to investigate the safety of intravenously administered, low osmolar, non-ionic contrast agents.
The difference between the measured and calculated osmolality is called the osmolar gap and can be clinically useful to assess certain toxicities.
2) Many hospitals are unable to perform EG and MTH measurements in a timely fashion; which in this case, a combination of a metabolic acidosis associated with a high anion gap and osmolar gap is considered the hallmark of toxic alcohol intoxication.
