Metabolic and hormonal data from brain injured patients over 20 days following injury were compared with an existing data base from non-head-injured patients and control subjects. The results demonstrated elevated concentrations of plasma glucose, lactate, non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), cortisol, glucagon and insulin above that of control values in both groups after injury.
