Nonglucose carbohydrates such as mannose and inositol are important in early growth and development, although little is known about their metabolism. Our aim in this study was to determine the plasma appearance rates (Ra) for mannose and inositol in newborns as an index of utilization and as an improved guide to supplementation practices. We studied late-preterm (n = 9) and term (n = 5) infants (median 34 wk gestation, range 33-41 wk) using a multiple isotope infusion start time protocol to… CONTINUE READING
