Blood glutathione in severe malnutrition in childhood.

Abstract

The blood glutathione (GSH) concentration was measured in 25 severely malnourished children and compared with a group of normal adults. In children with marasmus GSH (3.3 +/- 0.7 mg/gHb) was not different from normal (2.9 +/- 0.4 mg/gHb). However there was a highly significant decrease in all forms of oedematous malnutrition, kwashiorkor (1.5 +/- 0.4 mg/gHb) and marasmic kwashiorkor (1.7 +/- 0.7 mg/gHb). There was no relationship between wasting or stunting and blood GSH.
