Sulfur balances were completed in newborn infants parenterally fed with or without cysteine. In both groups, the preservative, potassium metabisulfite, accounted for the majority of sulfur intake (32 mg S/kg/day), while methionine intakes provided an additional 27 sulfate losses accounted for approximately 95% of the sulfur excretion, with the remainder contained in amino acids. Balance data accounted for over 99% of the sulfur infused in the unsupplemented group, but only 90% of that given to… CONTINUE READING
