Abstract

The study was designed to examine the of effects of level of protein intake on Cu metabolism in 6 healthy young adult women. The subjects were given 4 levels of protein diet, 0.45g (period I), 0.60g (period III), 0.75g (period II) and 0.90g (period IV) of protein per Kg of body weight and 0.86mg 0.70mg, 1.86mg and 2.34mg of Cu per day for 5 days respectively. During the experimental period, urine sample were collected everyday and fecal sample were collected for last 2 days of each dietary period. The samples were analyzed for Cu contents. Mean daily urinary Cu excretion were $0.12{\pm}0.03mg$ for period I, $0.16{\pm}0.02mg$ for period III, $0.35{\pm}0.08mg$ for period II and $0.11{\pm}0.02mg$ for period IV, and the mean daily urinary excretion of Cu was not affected significant difference by the level of protein intake. Mean daily fecal Cu excretion were $0.12{\pm}0.03mg$ for period I, $0.16{\pm}0.02mg$ for period III, $0.35{\pm}0.08mg$ for period II and $0.11{\pm}0.02mg$ for period IV, and the mean daily urinary excretion of Cu was not affected significant difference by the level of protein intake. Mean dailey Mean dailey fecal Cu excretion were $1.23{\pm}0.16mg$ for period I, $1.28{\pm}0.25mg$ for period III, $0.99{\pm}0.01mg$ for period II and $1.85{\pm}0.19mg$ for period IV, and the difference of the 2 periods I vs IV was significant(p<0.05). Mean dailey cu balance were $0.48{\pm}0.14mg$ for period I, $0.74{\pm}0.26mg$ for period III, $0.52{\pm}0.12mg$ for period II and $0.38{\pm}0.20mg$ for period IV, and the difference of the 2 periods I vs IV was significant(p<0.05).
