Excess energy intake promotes the development of hypoalbuminaemia in rats fed on low-protein diets.


1. A group of rats were given ad lib, a diet with a protein-energy: total energy (P:E) value of 0 . 03. Other animals received the same protein intake (g/kg body-weight per d) as this group, but had their energy consumption reduced to either 90, 80, 70, 60 or 50% of the ad lib. value. 2. The restricted growth rate of rats fed on the P:E--0 . 03 diet ad lib… (More)
