Fig. 6. Photograph of a patient with anorexia nervosa. From a MedCom slide, 1970. CLINICAL COMMENTS Percy Veere. As a result of his severely suppressed appetite for food, Percy Veere has developed a mild degree of protein–calorie malnutrition. When prolonged, this type of protein malnutrition can cause changes in the villi of the small intestine that reduce its absorptive capacity for what little food is ingested. Despite his insufficient intake of dietary carbohydrates, Mr. Veere’s blood glucose level is 72 mg/dL, close to the lower limit (80 mg/dL) of the normal range for a well-nourished, healthy person after a 12-hour fast.

However, red blood cells, the brain, and other neural tissues use mainly glucose. 1. II. METABOLIC CHANGES DURING PROLONGED FASTING If the pattern of fuel utilization that occurs during a brief fast were to persist for an extended period, the body’s protein would be quite rapidly consumed to the point at which critical functions would be compromised. Fortunately, metabolic changes occur during prolonged fasting that conserve (spare) muscle protein by causing muscle protein turnover to decrease.

Skeletal muscles convert glucose to fatty acids. red blood cells oxidize glucose to CO2. provide nitrogen for synthesis of nonessential amino acids in the liver. can be converted to glucose in most tissues. cannot be converted to adipose tissue fat. release nitrogen that is converted to urea in skeletal muscle. are generally converted to body proteins or excreted in the urine. Elevated levels of chylomicrons were measured in the blood of a patient. What dietary therapy would be most helpful in lowering chylomicron levels?
