To obtain more information about the correct protein intake in low birth weight children, serum amino acid concentrations were determined. In 59 formula-fed, low birth weight children, serum amino acid concentrations were determined at 3, 24 and 72 h after birth and at the age of 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks. Mean serum concentrations of all amino acids decreased… CONTINUE READING
