ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to asses the effect of glutamine-supplemented total parenteral feeding on clinical and nutritional states in severe inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Twenty seven patients with severe IBD were qualified to total parenteral feeding with or without glutamine. The clinical, metabolic and nutritional improvements have been analyzed after 14-day treatment. Though, we were able to notice some improvements in hemoglobin and transferrin concentrations as well as nitrogen balance, it still cannot be strongly concluded that these effects were due to glutamine supplementation. There were any beneficial effects of glutamine on immunological, biochemical nor anthropometric parameters of nutritional status.
