ESPGHAN/ESPEN/ESPR/CSPEN guidelines on pediatric parenteral nutrition: Amino acids

Publication at First Faculty of Medicine, Second Faculty of Medicine |


Outcome: Recommendations were developed from a standpoint of nutrient adequacy. Depending on age groups, nutrient adequacy was based on intrauterine accretion rate, organ development, factorial estimates of requirements and amino acid interactions.

Individual amino acids are discussed. Minimal intakes of specific amino acids are those that meet the specific requirement of children in that age group.

Maximal intakes are recommended to prevent excessive and potentially harmful intakes of amino acids.
