Features of lipid metabolism in infants with protein-energy munutrition.


Purpose: To study the features of lipid metabolism in infants with protein-energy malnutrition.

Patients and methods. The 58 of children with protein-energy malnutrition in the age from 1 to 12 months were under observation. The control group consisted from 25 of children the physical development of which were appropriate to the age. The study of clinical and anamnestic data, clinical examination of

children with assessment of their physical development, clinical and laboratory examination are conducted. Determination of lipid metabolism data (cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, very little density lipoproteins cholesterol and atherogenic index) were performed by immunoenzyme method. Determination of serum cortisol levels was performed using immunochemistry system ACCESS. Statistical analysis of the results was carried out by the methods of variation statistics using the program of SPSS 17.0.

Results. Among the risk factors of protein-energy malnutrition in children in the first year of life is an important place takes pathology of perinatal period. In the structure of comorbidity the important place occupied the consequences of hypoxic-ischemic of the CNS. Among the congenital malformations in children with protein-energy malnutrition the prevailed were congenital heart diseases — 19 (33%) of patients and birth defects of the brain — 16 (28%) of patients. There are also detected background diseases: iron deficiency anemia — 32%, rickets — 20%, prenatal infection — 16% of cases. Nutritional factor was not dominant in the development of protein-energy malnutrition. The primary cause of hypotrophy among examined children was the main pathology. A violation of lipid metabolism characterized by significant reduction of the levels of cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL, VLDL and atherogenic index were established.

Summary. Results of the study are shown a decrease in cholesterol, triglycerides, fractionation lipoprotein and increased levels of cortisol in blood serum of infants with protein-energy malnutrition. The latter may indicates about predominance of lipolysis over lipogenesis in children with protein-energy malnutrition.
