[Mineral balance during nutritional recuperation of infants with protein deficiency].
Arch Latinoam Nutr. 1995 Sep; 45(3):172-7.AL

Abstract

Mineral requirements of normal infants change according to growth velocity. They are directly associated to needs for obtaining an adequate composition of new tissue, assure an optimal bone mineralization and for maintaining normal plasma mineral levels. Nutritional rehabilitation of malnourished infants determines increased mineral requirements, which may be not satisfied with usual infant formulas. We studied mineral retention (Ca, P, Mg, Zn and Cu) during nutritional recovery of 9 malnourished male infants (age: 2-7 mo; weight/age < 70%), fed two formulas, both with 85 Kcal/dL (356 KJoule/dL): the first based on whole cow's milk (LP) and the second on a modified cow's milk containing mineral recommendations for normal infants (LPM); balances were compared to normal for age and for length. Infants received each formula for 6 days, with the last 3 days on a metabolic balance Ca, Mg, and P showed high intakes and very low urinary excretions, calcium retention (68.5 +/- 22.7 and 61.4 +/- 16.7 mg/kg/d, for LP and LPM, respectively) were 3 times over normal mean for age (130 mg/d) and 2.5 times over the normal for length (155 mg/d). Mg retention (7.4 +/- 2.0 and 3.4 +/- 1.2 mg/kg/d)), for LP and LPM) were higher than normal for age (2.7 mg/d) or length (3.3 mg/d) and also those of P (LP: 74.8 +/- 7.1; LPM: 52.2 +/- 9.3 mg/kg/d), compared to a mean of 66 mg/d for the same age, or 79 mg/d for length. Zn retentions were comparable with both formulas (LP: 0.14 +/- 0.07 vs LPM: 0.18 +/- 0.06 mg/kg/d) and over normal requirements for age (0.3 mg/d) or length (0.5 mg/d). Copper retentions were significantly lower with LP than LPM (13.8 +/- 14.0 vs 40.0 +/- 13.2 micrograms/kg/d; p < 0.01), due to low intake with LP. We conclude that a high mineral retention is observed in infants recovering from malnutrition, when they are fed formulas with mineral content over its normal recommendations.
