Postoperative hypoalbuminemia occurs frequently; however, the cause of this disorder is not clear. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study we investigated to what extent hypoalbuminemia and protein catabolism are caused by counterregulatory stress hormones, which play an important role in the metabolic changes that follow surgery. We simulated the… CONTINUE READING
