Randomised Controlled Trial Of Colostrum To Improve Intestinal Function In Patients With Short Bowel Syndrome
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In patients with short bowel syndrome, supplementation of colostrum (250mL of a beverage containing 26.5g protein; control of skim milk and protein) for four weeks failed to outperform placebo protein in improving nutritive status and protein absorption and underperformed for increasing weight and lean mass. Power output (assessed by handgrip strength) was not different between groups but increased with protein in general.
Meal-induced GLP-2 secretion was not different between groups.
