Serum B12 concentration is elevated in patients receiving chronic parenteral nutrition, but is not a marker of intestinal failure-associated liver disease.


BACKGROUND Cobalamin is released during hepatic cytolysis associated with liver injury. Serum B12 concentration is frequently elevated in patients that receive long-term parenteral nutrition (PN). We hypothesized that serum B12 concentration would become elevated in intestinal failure-associated liver disease and would reflect in disease severity. METHODS… (More)
