Effects of feeding male and female broiler chickens on low-protein diets
fortified with different dietary glycine levels under the hot and humid tropical climate.
The main finding of this study is that a low-protein diet
did not produce any death or toxic clinical signs in pregnant rats, nor changed the biochemical, hematological, and reproductive parameters of the animals.
Thus, we sought to explore the effect of subdiaphragmatic vagotomy on insulin sensitivity, secretion, and degradation in metabolic programmed mice, induced by a low-protein diet
early in life, followed by exposure to a high-fat diet in adulthood.
(26,27) In the MDRD study, 585 participants in group A (GFR 22-55ml/min/1.73[m.sup.2]) were divided between ordinary protein intake (1.3g/kg/day) and low-protein diet
(LPD: 0.6g/kg/day), while 255 group B participants (GFR = 13-24ml/min/1.73[m.sup.2]) were divided between LPD (0.6 g/kg/day) and very low protein diet (VLPD: 0.28g/kg/day).
Thyroid function in post-weaning rats whose dams were fed a low-protein diet
To test the hypothesis that older subjects on a low-protein diet
become malnourished because they have difficulty absorbing amino acids, an experiment was run in which both young and old mice were fed either high-protein or low-protein diets
"However, we also propose that at older ages, it may be important to avoid a low-protein diet
to allow the maintenance of healthy weight and protection from frailty," Crimmins said.
"The research shows that a low-protein diet
in middle age is useful for preventing cancer and overall mortality, through a process that involves regulating IGF-I and possibly insulin levels," said co-author Eileen Crimmins, the RP Chair in Gerontology at USC.
The treatment includes a low-protein diet
with medical food or formula, as well as the medication nitisinone (Orfadin[R]).
Zukowska, "Maternal low-protein diet
up-regulates the neuropeptide Y system in visceral fat and leads to abdominal obesity and glucose intolerance in a sex- and time-specific manner," The FASEB Journal, vol.
"Getting rid of extra nitrogen from that protein in the body will make the dog feel a little sick if he has kidney issues, so then you have to have a low-protein diet
so the dog doesn't retain nitrogen."
A low-protein diet
reduces production of nitrogenous wastes, reducing renal damage, inflammation and gastrointestinal symptoms.
