Effects of starvation on serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, uric acid and creatinine in newly hatched broiler chicks



Effects of starvation on serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, uric acid and creatinine in newly hatched broiler chicks



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 65(10): 1081-1085



Newly hatched broiler chicks were starved for 1-5 days and their serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, uric acid and creatinine, and body weight, were assessed and compared to their counterparts in fed chicks. A slight and steady decrease in the mean calcium level and a significant decrease (P lt 0.05) in the mean phosphorus level in the serum of fasted group compared to the fed group were observed. A significant increase in the mean values of uric acid (P lt 0.05) and a substantial increase in the mean values of creatinine were also observed from the second and third days onward of fasting respectively. There was a significant negative correlation between uric acid and body weight (r= -0.468), and between uric acid and calcium (r = -0.232).
