Urinary urea/creatinine ratio prior to and after 16 weeks of energy control (involving active dietary counselling) and during a 12-month follow-up during which subjects were not provided with active dietary counselling advice on a conventional protein diet (black circles) or high-protein diet (white circles). Values are means±s.e.m. *P=0.001 significantly different from baseline, P=0.02 significantly different between groups, P<0.05 significant change from week 16. NB, not all subjects provided complete 24-h urine collections at week 29 (SP, N=20; HP, N=20), week 42 (SP, N=20; HP, N=19), week 55 (SP, N=19; HP, N=19).
