A common question we get asked at MX3 is how Salivary Osmolarity (SOSM) measurements made with the MX3 Hydration Testing System compare to Urine Specific Gravity (USG) in relation to dehydration. USG spot-checks are routinely used by many work sites and sports teams, but recent research reveals that this method can greatly over-estimate or underestimate the number of dehydrated individuals. This post will summarize some of the studies investigating USG and SOSM so you can better understand how these hydration biomarkers match up.
