Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Table 1 shows an approximate metabolic balance sheet for the fetal sheep at late gestation. The metabolic balance in humans has not been determined but is estimated to be similar, except for a greater caloric requirement for fat deposition, adding about 33 kcal/kg/day to the total fetal caloric intake (34). The total fetal metabolic rate accounts for about 58% of caloric uptake. This percentage is close to the sum of the measured oxidation percentages of the principal energy substrates; this discrepancy cannot yet be explained.
