Preterm infants born with very low birth weight (VLBW; <1500 g) frequently receive inadequate neonatal nutrition; the long-term consequences are poorly known.
Objective: We evaluated the association between early macronutrient intake and body composition in young adults born with VLBW.
Methods: We collected comprehensive information on daily nutritional intake during the initial hospital stay for 127 participants of the Helsinki Study of Very Low Birth Weight Adults. We calculated mean daily intakes of energy, protein, fat, and carbohydrate during the first 9 wk of life. At the mean age of 22.5 y, the subjects underwent measurements of weight, height, body composition by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, and resting energy expenditure. The associations were examined by linear regression.
Results: We found that energy, protein, and fat intakes during the first 3 wk of life, all below current recommendations, predicted adult body composition. When adjusted for sex, age, birth weight SD score, and gestational age, a 1 g  kg21  d21 higher protein intake predicted 11.1% higher lean body mass (LBM) (95% CI: 3.7%, 18.9%) and 8.5% higher resting energy expenditure (REE) (95% CI: 0.2%, 17.0%). Among those born before 28 wk of gestation, the numbers were 22.5% (95% CI: 1.9%, 47.4%) for LBM and 22.1% (95% CI: 3.6%, 44.0%) for REE. Similar associations were seen with energy (P = 0.01, P = 0.05) and fat (P < 0.01, P = 0.03) but not with carbohydrate. Energy intake was also associated with BMI (P = 0.01) and fat intake with BMI (P < 0.01) and percentage body fat (P = 0.05). The results were little changed when adjusted for prenatal and postnatal characteristics.
Conclusions: At relatively low neonatal protein intake levels, additional protein intake is reflected in a healthier body composition, accompanied by a higher metabolic rate, in young adults born with VLBW 20 y earlier.

However,among a subset of 66 infants who underwent body composition between infants diagnosed with BPD and infants without the measurements by isotope dilution at 6 mo, no difference was diagnosis. Infants who were treated longer with ventilators or found in either fat or LBM between the low- and high-protein who were supplied oxygen for a longer time had lower early groups, although both groups had higher fat mass than breastfed intakes of energy, protein, and fat (P < 0.01) and had (P = 0.04) infants (33).

No associations were found between reported long-term follow-up of early nutrient intake in small nutrient intake and being born from preeclamptic or multiple preterm infants. One study assessed adult body composition by pregnancy or between nutrient intake and maternal smoking DXA among 61 adolescents born before 34 wk of gestation. No during pregnancy.

However, the study used a To take the important role of growth into account, we adjusted dichotomous comparison of high and low intakes which could for growth during the first 3 wk [difference between birth weight mask existing associations that could be revealed by other SD score and weight SD score at age 21 d, available for 122 methods.

The results of our study could suggest an extension to the early protein hypothesis by proposing that in the light of presentresults and past literature the relations of early protein intakewith body composition are nonlinear. At subphysiologic intakelevels, such as those in our study, a higher protein intake predictsan increase in lean rather than fat mass. At rather high levels,relative to the developmental period, such as in formula-fedinfants, increasing protein intake however will result in higherfat rather than lean mass in later life (19, 33). An analogousphenomenon is seen in studies that assessed the long-term effectsof growth during infancy. In studies in subjects born between1934 and 1944 in Helsinki, Finland (34), and between 1970 and1973 in New Delhi, India (35), a more rapid increase in BMIbetween birth and 2 y predicts higher LBM but not fat mass orpercentage in adult life. These cohorts are likely to include asubstantial proportion of infants with subphysiologic growth.
By contrast, among contemporary Western populations, supra-physiologic weight gain is more common, and in these popula-tions a more rapid growth during infancy will result in anincrease in both lean and fat mass later in life (36). Accordingly,when interventions to reduce infant growth by reducing proteinintake are planned, which may be appropriate in todayÕs infantsborn at term as a group, care should be taken that infants whoare at the lower end of the protein intake distribution do notattain too low levels that could endanger the growth of leantissue.
Our finding of the association between higher energy, protein, and fat intakes and higher REE but lower REE:LBMis also of particular interest when discussing potential pathwaysin the development of overweight and obesity. To our knowledgeno other study has yet assessed this association. We havepreviously shown that, in addition to lower LBM (26), VLBWadults in this cohort have lower REE and higher REE:LBM thanadults born at term (28); we now show that this phenomenon ismost pronounced among VLBW adults with lowest early proteinand fat intakes. The main constituents of LBM include muscleand internal organs, most of which are at rest metabolicallymore active than muscle (37). Our finding of the higher LBM butlower REE:LBM of subjects who received more protein supportsthe view included in the developmental origins of adult healthand disease hypothesis that materno-fetal undernutrition influ-ences the metabolic phenotype later in life so that undernutritionduring early life increases the metabolic activity, resulting inmore active energy metabolism in adulthood.
The design of our study holds a set of strengths and limitations. Our cohort is unique in that the data on neonatalnutrient intake are based on objective recordings by medicalstaff. However, data for weeks 1–3 were unavailable for 25subjects. In addition, a small proportion of infants receivednutritional products for which we have not been able to trace theexact compositions, and we have used compositions of a closelycorresponding product (e.g., the same label with compositionavailable for a different study year). All these inaccuracieswould, however, only be expected to increase random error and Results from linear regression analyses with measure- ments of body composition of the young adults born with very lowbirth weight as dependent variables and nutritional intakes of energy(A), protein (B), fat (C), and carbohydrate (D) during the first 3 wk of life maternal smoking during pregnancy, and maternal preeclampsia and as independent variables.
