The intrasubject precision of the doubly labelled water method was investigated as a function of increasing length of the metabolic period and decreasing initial isotope enrichment. This analysis was performed in seven subjects following a single dose of isotope and three subjects who received multiple doses of isotope. The intrasubject precision was 5-6 per cent for periods of up to 14 d. This is only slightly larger than that predicted from our previously published model in which we assumed… CONTINUE READING
