Specific gravity (SG)

Urinary specific gravity is based on the concentration of solutes in urine. It measures the ratio of urine density compared to water and provides information on the kidney’s ability to concentrate urine. If the specific gravity values drop below 1.010 g/mL urine, cells undergo faster lysis than in normal conditions (1.010 to 1.030 g/mL).
