The freezing point of urine is influenced by diet, liquids, exercise and elimination through other channels, as emesis, diarrheas, perspiration, etc. CRYOSCOrY OF THE BLOOD. The cryoscopic examination of the blood gives us more valuable information, because it has been found that the freezing point of normal blood is practically constant, varying from--0.55 to--0.57 C, the average being--0.56 C.
