This was associated with an enhanced acute-phase protein response, peripheral amino acid mobilization, and increased peripheral lactate production. Thus, TPN may exacerbate the metabolic derangements seen in sepsis through an enhancement of cytokine production as well as an exaggerated response by counter-regulatory hormones.
