BACKGROUND Glucose tolerance is often impaired in Cystic Fibrosis. The impact of this condition on enteral nutritional support in case of malnourishment remains to be studied. METHOD In this study the glucose-, C-peptide- and insulin-responses to an OGTT and a standard enteral formula load were investigated in 19 non-diabetic CF-patients. Each test was performed with a carbohydrate load of 1.75 g/kg bodyweight. RESULTS 11 patients had a normal OGTT (Group I) and 8 had an impaired glucose… CONTINUE READING
