906 Effect of Early Feeding on Plasma Glucose in Small-for-dates (sga) Neonates

Abstract

Recent evidence that fasting glucose homeostasis is limited in newborns by an impairment in gluconeogenesis suggests that the high incidence of hypoglycemia (hypogly) in SGA neonates may reflect the extent of fasting imposed on them by nursery feeding practice. To evaluate the effect of early feeding on plasma glucose (glu) levels, 18 healthy SGA infants… (More)
