Dr. Jill Edison
Specializes in Nephrology and Dialysis
Hyposthenuria: Hyposthenuria refers to solute concentration in the urine, changing with oral intake and/or diuretics. Non-oliguria relates to amount of urine output; it is low( less than 500ml/day) or not ( >500ml/day) , so you can have one and not the other. I hope this was helpful, alina.
