Abstract:

Studies were performed which showed that amino acid infusions alone did not eliminate negative nitrogen balance and that addition of glycerol, low dose glucose, fat emulsion and high dose glucose were effective in further reducing nitrogen loss with high dose glucose and amino acids being the most effective. Using N15 enriched glycine the addition of glucose was shown to increase the rate of protein synthesis over amino acid infusions alone.
