The aim of our work is to study the effect of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) cycling in preterm infants on hypercalcuria (excessive calcium excretion in urine). TPN cycling refers to administering the TPN over a portion of the day rather than the whole day. Our hypothesis is that cyclic TPN includes more hypercalcuria in preterm infants as compared to continuous TPN.
Measure Urinary Calcium(Ca) during the periods of continuous and cyclic TPN.
Compare the amount of Ca losses in the urine continuous vs. cyclic TPN
