How Enteral Feeding Options Influence Corticosterone Patterns in Rats


Even with all the nutritional research conducted to date, it is not clear which enteral nutrition delivery and composition options are most physiologically sound. Glucocorticoid temporal patterns are reported to be shifted or disrupted with restricted feeding schedules, but because of intermittent sampling, tem-poral patterns have not been completely depicted. The purpose of this study was to characterize corticoster-one temporal patterns while systematically varying selected enteral feeding options in a well-established nutritional animal model. A 2 · 2 · 2 · 2 random-ized block experimental design was used in which enteral feeding schedules, delivery methods, kilocalo-rie levels (kcal), and fiber contents were systemati-cally varied in rats (n = 80), and plasma corticoster
