The Utilization of Xylitol, Fructose and Sorbitol

Carbohydrates represent an essential component of the caloric intake in intravenous nutrition. There has been experience with glucose fructose and the two sugar alcohols, xylitol and sorbitol (Bassler, 1971; Mehnert, et al., 1970), glucose being the most important carbohydrate in parenteral nutrition. There are, however, certain conditions in which glucose utilization is impaired, such as diabetes mellitus or in the postoperative state and additional administration of insulin may be necessary.
