abstract

  • This study demonstrates that the currently recommended 3 mg of thiamine hydrochloride added to TPN solutions is adequate to maintain normal thiamine status. This should prevent the development of thiamine deficiency even in patients with compromised intestinal thiamine absorption, and in the presence of bisulfite-containing amino acid solutions.
