Higher serum carnitine levels and ketogenesis in breast fed as compared to formula fed infants



Higher serum carnitine levels and ketogenesis in breast fed as compared to formula fed infants



Pediatric Research 12(4, II): 504



Mean concentration of carnitine was in cord blood of normal term infants 34 nmol/ml. At 42 h old it is 56 in blood of breast-fed and 32 in blood of aritificially fed infants. The breast-fed infants had serum ketone bodies ( beta -hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate) 5.9 nmol/ml and the artificially fed had 3.0. There was no significant difference between those 2 groups in serum glucose. Carnitine was 50 to 100 nmol/ml in human milk and 48 to 80 in commercial feeds, about the same.
