    The 24 hour urine is normally all urine. Or voids over the 24 hours , need to discuss this with your specialist if not sure as these tests used for lots of illnesses  and all specialists do for different reasons , so all of us on site will have had different things done for different reasons and we are not experts , talk to specialists for all explanations ,
