“Spot urine sodium and FeNa+
1. Since hypovolemia promotes avid sodium reabsorption, hypovolemia is usually associated with a low urinary sodium concentration (< 20–30 mEq/L) and low FeNa+(< 0.5%). On the other hand, euvolemic patients do not have a stimulus to reabsorb urine sodium and usually have a higher urinary sodium (> 20–30 mEq/L) and FeNa+.”
