Urea-nitrogen production and salvage are modulated by protein intake in fed humans: results of an oral stable-isotope-tracer protocol and compartmental modeling.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The influence of protein source on postprandial urea kinetics is poorly understood, despite its nutritional significance with respect to nitrogen homeostasis. Furthermore, traditional tracer infusion studies underestimate acute postprandial change in urea kinetics. OBJECTIVE We investigated postprandial, non-steady state urea kinetics and their… (More)
