BACKGROUND Increasing evidence suggests that glutamine is important for the function of many organ systems and supports the use of glutamine-enriched total parenteral nutrition (TPN) during severe illness. However, the effect of prolonged glutamine supplementation on glutamine kinetics has not been studied. OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of 8-10 d of TPN enriched with glutamine dipeptides on glutamine kinetics. DESIGN Twenty-three preoperative patients were randomly allocated to… CONTINUE READING
