INTRODUCTION: Initiation of high protein, especially on the first day, was reported to positively affect growth and neuromotor development in premature infants. However the effect of high protein content on metabolic and biochemical parameters is unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of low and high dose protein administration on biochemical parameters in premature infants.
