The influence of alanine infusion on glucose production in 'malnourished' African children with falciparum malaria.

Abstract:

By US standards, about half of African children are malnourished, although most appear clinically normal. It is possible that precursor supply for gluconeogenesis is limited to a greater extent in these seemingly malnourished African children than in healthy children, consequently limiting glucose production. Since in malaria peripheral glucose utilization is increased, precursor supply could play an even more critical role in maintaining glucose production in African children suffering from ...
