    Nitrogen equilibrium is a term used to describe the condition when nitrogen input to the body and nitrogen elimination from the body is balanced. If nitrogen metabolism is not in equilibrium, then the "nitrogen balance" can be either positive or negative. A healthy body is characterized by a nitrogen equilibrium (steady state equilibrium) where intake and loss of nitrogen are equal. When a ...
