Relationship between enteral glucose load and adaptive mucosal growth in the small bowel

Abstract

Infusion of hyperosmolar glucose solutions into small bowel will prevent mucosal atrophy or stimulate mucosal growth in rats otherwise maintained on total parenteral nutrition (TPN). It is not certain whether this growth effect is related to the osmolarity of the solution or its total molecular load. Therefore, various concentrations of glucose and sodium… (More)
