Malnutrition and muscle loss are common in bed-ridden elderly nursing home residents. Supplementation of beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) has been shown to prevent muscle loss in several catabolic conditions. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of HMB supplementation on body composition and protein metabolism in bed-ridden elderly nursing home residents receiving tube feeding. The subjects were randomly assigned to HMB (n=39, 2 g/d) or control group (n=40). Anthropometry… Expand
