Children with hyperphagia and obesity of Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) have previously been shown to have blunted pancreatic polypeptide (PP) response to low protein meal stimulation. To evaluate the effects of various protein challenges on PP release in children with PWS, we administered both a low protein (0.2 g/kg) and a high protein (2.0 g/kg) meal stimulation test to 12 children previously diagnosed as having PWS and to an age- and weight-matched group of 19 obese but otherwise normal… CONTINUE READING
