[Balanced parenteral and oral feeding of underweight newborn infants].Infusionsther Klin Ernahr 1979; 6(5):268-72IK
The oral feeding of 50 newborns with low birth weight was combined with infusions of two different amino acid solutions (mother milk-adapted and requirement-adapted), parenteral lipids and glucose. All infants showed a rapid weight gain, the N-balance became positive, hypoglycemic or hyperosmotic reactions were missing. Amino acid imbalances could not be seen, values of glutamic acid, aspartic acid and asparagine differed in both groups just as proline. In management of infants with low birth weight the supplemental application of these amino acid solutions, lipids and glucose has advantages.
