1 Nutrient Support in Critically Ill Children with ARF NJ Maxvold MD Pediatric Critical Care Medicine DeVos Childrens Hospital Grand Rapids, MI, USA

2 Nutrition in Pediatric ARF Critical Illness Metabolism: Stress: Inflammatory Cytokines; Gene Expression Modulation NeuroEndocrine Axis Phases Altered Substrate Utilization Metabolic Alterations in ARF catabolism from uremia, acidosis, impaired fluid/solute K AA Profile / Interconversion in ARF Vitamin Derangements Impaired Lipolysis: Lipase Activity; LDL & VLDL, Cholesterol


4 Hyperglycemia of Critical Illness Altered Substrate Utilization in Acute Illness Carbohydrate Utilization: a. Oxidation ( Inefficient) b.Glycogenesis c.Lipogenesis Insulin Resistance

5 CHO Metabolism in Critical Illness Inefficient Glucose Metabolism: Shift of Glycolysis to Pyruvate, then cycling back through the liver for Gluconeogenesis [Cori Cycle] Decrease Pyruvate entry into TCA cycle Therefore net energy produced is significantly diminished, and continues to feed into a hypermetabolic state of partial glucose oxidation then regeneration of Glucose { High Glucose Turnover}

6 [Van den Berghe G, et al. Crit care Med 2003; 31: ] Normoglycemic Control [ mg/dl] Crit Illness Polyneuropathy Bactermia Inflammation Anemia Reduction of Mortality Insulin Dose Preventive Effect on ARF Reduction of Mortality Prolonged Inflammation

7 CHO Metabolism in Critical Illness Glycolysis: Glucose>>> 2 Lactate G°´= kcal/mol TCA Complete Oxidation: Glucose + 6 O2 6 CO2 + 6 H2O G°´= kcal/mol

8 Metabolic Alterations in Critical Illness Lipid Utilization in Acute Illness: Stress Hormones (Catecholamines/Cortisol) Lipolysis: FFA (major fuel in acute illness) a. Oxidation via TCA cycle b. Lipogenesis c. Ketogenesis (Glucagon inhibited during critical illness) d.PDH Inhibition (prevents Glucose TCA Oxidation and increases FFA TCA Oxidation)

9 Protein Metabolism in Acute Illness Catabolism (Skeletal Muscle) a. Gluconeogenesis (Alanine) b. Acute Phase Proteins (Liver Synthesis) Negative Nitrogen Balance

10 Stress Liver synthetic Changes Anabolic : Albumin, antithrombin, protein C High Density Lipoproteins Stress/Acute Phase: Fibrinogen Ferritin, alpha-1antitrypsinogen anitiproteases

11 Altered Cellular Metabolism Diminished Mitochondrial Energy Production: I.Dysfunctional Respiration: Downregulation of genes coding for electron transport chain II.Dysfunctional Glycolytic pathway: Downregulation of gene for PFK (rate limiting enzyme) [Callahan et al, J Appl Physiol 2005;99: ]

12 Hypermetabolism in Children with Critical Illness AveEnergy Intake REE Coss-Bu ( Am J Clin Nutr 2001) 0.23 MJ/kg/d >25% Verhoeven (Int Care Med 1998) 0.24 MJ/kg/d >14% Joosten (Nutrition 1999) 0.26 MJ/kg/d >20%

13 Substrate Utilization/Nutrient Composition 75%CHO:15% AA: 10% Lipid 15%CHO: 15%AA: 70% Lipid C 13 Glucose, C 13 Acetate Maximum Glu Oxidation 4mg/kg/min Lipogenesis from Excess Glucose Metabolism Gluconeogenesis and Protein Catabolism was not effected [Tappy et al. Crit Care Med 1998;26: ]

14 Protein Catabolism in ARF Adult Studies: Protein Catabolic Rate ~ g/kg/d [Macias WL, et al. JPEN 1996;20:56-62] [Chima CS, et al. JASN 1993; 3: ] Pediatric Studies: Urea Nitrogen Appearance ~ mg/kg/d [ Kuttnig M, et al. Child Nephrol Urol 1991;11:74-78] [ Maxvold N, et al. Crit Care Med 2000;28: ]

15 Nitrogen Balance in ARF [Bellomo R, et al. Ren Fail 1997;19: ] Protein Intake : Nitrogen Balance 1.2 g/kg/d AA -5.5g N/d 2.5 g/kg/d AA -1.9g N/d * Patients were on CRRT

16 Conditional Essential Nutrients? Glutamine – Nitrogen Trafficking Precursor of purine / pyridimine Substrate for Rapidly dividing Cells (Kidney tubular cells, enterocytes, immune cells) Precursor for Glutathione Substrate for Gluconeogenesis Intracellular Osmotic Regulator Primary Substrate for Ammoniagenesis (in Kidney and gut)

17 Glutamine Metabolism Glutamine Release: Muscle Free pool Gln Muscle protein catabolism Muscle synthesis of Gln Glutamine Uptake: Gut [Supply Dependent] Liver, Spleen, Immune System [Active, Independent]

18 Glutamine Metabolism Rested State: Gln [pl] ~ micromol/L Gln [Ms] ~15-20 mmol/L Catabolic State: Rapid Fall in Gln [pl] >30- 50% Muscle Gln Loss Reduced Muscle Resting Membrane Potential [Defect Na + electrochemical Gradient]

19 Glutamine Supplementation [Ziegler et al, Ann Intern Med 1992;116:821] 45 BMT patients with Parenteral Glutamine (L-Gln) Supplemention : 0.57g/kg/d Gln &2.07g/kg/d AA Intake Improved Nitrogen Balance: -1.4g/d vs -4.2g/d Clinical infections: 3/24 vs 9/21 Hospital stay: 29 days vs 36 days [ Schloerb et al; JPEN 1993; 17: ] Hospital stay: 26 days vs 32 days Total Body Water: -1.2 L vs 2.2 L (Bioimpedance)

20 Biotin Regulatory Effect on genes of Intermediary Metabolism a. Stimulates genes for Insulin, Insulin Receptor, Glucokinase (pancreatic and Hepatic) b. Decreases gene expression of hepatic Phosphoenolpyruvate Carbosykinase (*Gluconeogenic Enzyme in the liver) Conditional Essential Nutrients?
