Amino acid metabolism in acute renal failure: influence of intravenous essential L-amino acid hyperalimentation therapy



Amino acid metabolism in acute renal failure: influence of intravenous essential L-amino acid hyperalimentation therapy



Annals of Surgery 180(3): 350-355



Five patients in acute postoperative renal failure were treated by vein with a solution of 8 essential L-amino acids and hypertonic glucose. A sixth patient given intravenous glucose alone was the control. Before treatment plasma concentrations of amino acids in all 6 patients did not differ significantly from normal; after intravenous essential amino acids at a dose of about 12.6 g/24 h, no significant increase out of the normal range occurred.
