oa South African Medical Journal - Studies of amino acid handling in kwashiorkor with a possible explanation for the increased amino-aciduria

 

Abstract

Renal function and other studies suggest that the increased aminoaciduria of kwashiorkor is due to altered utilization of absorbed amino acids causing the renal threshold to be exceeded. As yet, we have no evidence of a defect in renal tubular function.
