445 Low Serum 3,3′,5′ Triiodothyronine (reverse T3) Concentration in Burned Children and Its Relationship to Nutritional State

Abstract

We studied the correlation between protein turnover and serum thyroid hormone levels in 10 children, age 1-16 yrs., with severe burn injuries. Whole body protein synthesis (S) and breakdown (C) were determined using an (15N) glycine infusion technique. Patients were maintained in good nutritional status as evidenced by a net anabolism (S,C) in 14 of 21… (More)
