Uric acid serum concentrations in CF-children after pancreatic enzyme supplementation

Padiatr Grenzgeb. 1989;28(3):171-3.


In 16 CF-patients (age: 7-23 years; 7 females, 9 males) we analysed the serum concentration of uric acid after a standard meal and pancreatic enzyme supplementation by PANKREON FORTE or PANGROL 400 "neu" (both 2800-3000 U lipase/kg body mass/meal). Simultaneously we measured the uric acid excretion into the urine. We found an effective digestion and subsequent resorption of triglycerides and glucose but no significant changes of the uric acid serum levels during the 8-hours-test period. The uric acid excretion was lower than in the nocturnal period before the test. We conclude that a dangerous hyperuricemia and/or hyperuricosuria do not usually occur in pancreatic enzyme supplementation.
